Use of Sports Premium
Since 2013-14, the government has provided schools with a special sports premium grant, based upon the number of children in the school.
As a school, we believe that it is essential to provide children with a rich and fulfilling curriculum to enhance their opportunities in sport and team building exercises. We do this by:
- Participation in the local Sports Partnership involving the Leighton Buzzard schools, which provides shared opportunities for coaching and competitions in various sports. See the school’s calendar for more details of specific events. There’s more details of what this provides in the impact reports, see bottom of this page.
- Purchase of new sports equipment to enhance and renew our current equipment
- Hiring in specialist sport coaches for key sports. As well as providing the children with the opportunity to develop sporting ability, the use of specialist sports coaches improves the knowledge and ability of the school’s staff – leaving a legacy for future years should the Government decide to not to continue with this extra support to schools.
