Sport & PE Information (Including Sport Premium)
What is the Sport Premium?
The Government is providing additional funding to support the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary and special schools. This extra funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport
and is allocated to primary and special school Headteachers.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools and schools have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
How have we used our Sport Premium funding?
Old Park School was allocated £8,500 for 2014-15 and we have used our funding to enrich and provide additional PE and sporting opportunities.

The impact of the additional funding
We have been given the opportunity to provide many more clubs both at lunchtime and after school and this has supported weight management and health. We have seen greater levels of participation with more children being involved.
Activities are exciting and have provided opportunities for skill development.
Pupils have also benefited from horse riding and sailing which has been excellent for communication, fun, enjoyment and confidence boosting.
