    Berwick St Mary’s CE First School: Sports Funding 2016-2017

    Under the Primary PE & Sport funding initiative, in 2016/17 we will receive £8500 to improve PE and sport in our school. The impact of the funding must be considered in terms of:

    • delivery of high quality PE lessons
    • participation and success in competitive school sport
    • a broader range of activities on offer
    • personal health and well-being of pupils
    • promoting pupil activity through involvement in organised games at breaks and lunchtime.
    • improved attitudes and behaviour towards learning


    We propose to spend this money in the following ways:

    • Supporting the PE subject leader to achieve the Sainsbury’s Active Schools Kite mark by focusing upon the establishment of inter and intra school competitions. Also to run lunchtime and after school sports/activity clubs. 
    • Employing a local coaches / mentors to provide multi sport activities both during the school day and in after-school clubs.
    • Specialist coaching for tennis, gymnastics, dance, football and rugby across the school.
    • To support the development of inter-school competitions at all levels within the school.
    • To supplement transport costs to allow pupils to participate in a range of sporting competitions around the local area and county.
    • Accessing local authority play rangers scheme to further enhance the play time activities by training the Play leader and establishing junior play leaders.
    • Examine the potential of employing a qualified sports coach on staff to develop physical activity and emotional well-being of children.

    We will regularly monitor the impact of our spending and may adjust the activities we provide accordingly. The impact of these activities will be continually monitored
