Olympic Legacy Sport Premium Funding
Wisbech St Mary CE Academy
Funding to be received: £17,790
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. The funding is for the period September 2019 - July 2020. This funding is ring fenced to be used for sport specific areas to make an impact in Physical Education and Sport in schools.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
During the academic year September 2021 to July 2022 we plan to spend our funding in the following areas:
Purchasing outdoor equipment to support outdoor learning at forest school.
Funding pool hire for swimming lessons for pupils (including a qualified lifeguard)
Offering free after school sporting activities and travel to and from competitive sporting activities through the Witchford partnership.
Professional development for teachers and teaching assistants to support and develop their subject knowledge.
Despite missing swimming due to COVID, this year, 79% of the children have made the expected 25m+ swimming target by the end of year 6.
