Sport & PE
We receive PE and Sport Premium for our pupils in Years 1 to 6. The amount is determined based on how many pupils are registered at the school in the January census and is variable each year. The money is given to us in two allocations from the local authority and must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport. This year’s allocation, £16,695:
7/12 of our funding allocation will be paid to the local authority on 31 October 2018 - £9,739
5/12 of our funding allocation will be paid to the local authority on 30 April 2019 - £6,956

- Participate in rural school sports tournaments;
- To support the children's understanding of how their bodies work and encourage self-assessment of their work by allowing them opportunity to use technology during P.E. lessons;
- Purchase new sports equipment to support P.E. lessons and increase participation in extra curricular activities.

The document below details the funding received by the school for the Sports Premium during the academic year.
74% of Year 6's achieved the expected swimming standard by the end of the academic year 2017- 2018.
As a small village school, we are part of the Rural schools inter-school competitions, where children in Year five and six take part in sports tournaments against other small schools. Different sporting tournaments are usually held once a term. These are a great opportunity to demonstrate our school values outside of our immediate community.

The School Uniform Policy documents the requirements for P.E. attire in more detail.
If your child is unable to participate in a lesson, parents must inform the class teacher. P.E. is a compulsory aspect of the National Curriculum and all pupils should be participating in lessons.
