When allocating funds through the Sports Premium Funding there are 5 key indicators to consider:

Key Indicator 1

The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school.

Working in partnership with Featherstone Rovers Rugby League Club, Frickley Athletic Football Club and Ackworth School, has enabled our school to offer further opportunities to engage pupils in regular physical activity by providing activities at lunchtime such as Dance and Dodgeball as well as afterschool clubs such as Football, Tennis and Dance.

Key Indicator 3

The profile of Sport and PE being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

By becoming a partner school with Featherstone Rovers Rugby League Club, Frickley Athletic Football Club and Ackworth School, we have already experienced many rich learning experiences, including coaching in Tag Rugby, Football, Tennis, Modern Pentathlon and Table Tennis to name a few.
