Sport Premium Funding Report 2016-17

Physical education is of paramount at Plymtree and all staff promote an active lifestyle, supporting all our extra-curricular activities and taking learning outside whenever we can.

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years from 2013/14 until 2019/2020, to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding; at Plymtree we have seen a real impact of the government’s funding on the physical well-being of our children.

Grant received –

Lump sum - £ 8000

£5 per child (69 on roll)

Total amount expected to receive - £8345

In addition to providing quality P.E. lessons as an entitlement, the school participates in a wide range of sports, co-ordinated through our partnerships with Uffculme and Cullompton Secondary Schools. Our P.E. Subject Leader attends the meetings and ensures our children have an opportunity to take in the workshops and tournaments which are available for all and facilitates all children participating at a more competitive level. Also being part of a federation has increased the opportunities available for our children. We have organised more friendly matches in football and High 5s and have come together for many days of walking.
