Primary Sports Premium Funding 2015-16 £8,830
The Academy has topped up the funding to enter into an agreement with the West Lancashire Sports Partnership to provide expert sports coaching to all children for 2 days per week, all year round. We believe this represents an excellent opportunity for all our children.
We are committed to providing children with access to high quality physical education and school sport both within and beyond the curriculum.
We want children to enjoy PE and to experience a wide range of activities in school. Alongside our class teachers, we use specialist sports coaches to develop children’s skills and self-confidence.
We believe that competition can be very healthy when managed correctly and teach our children the importance of winning and losing gracefully.
PE lessons take place at least twice a week in school in order to promote healthy lifestyles and raise children’s self-esteem.

From September 2013 the Government introduced a programme investing additional income into primary schools with the aim of improving school sport. The school has received £8,970 for the 2014/2015 Academic Year. The Academy has topped up the funding to enter into an agreement with the West Lancashire Sports Partnership to provide expert sports coaching to all children for 2.5 days per week, all year round. Further information on this can be found on our Physical Education Curriculum Page. We believe this represents an excellent opportunity for all our children.
