Sport Premium

Primary Sports Premium Report 2017-18

The Government is providing funding to maintained primary schools and academies that is specifically targeted at improving the provision of physical education (PE) and sport.

The Youth Sport Trust vision statement for the use of this premium is as follows:-

 “A measurable and sustained improvement in school PE and sport, underpinned by high-quality teaching that increases participation levels in physical activity, and leads to healthier pupils who are more engaged across the whole curriculum”

The Ridgeway School

Our use of the Sports Premium is based on whole school projects tailored to meet individual student needs. The focus is across four areas as follows:-

  1. To improve the quality of Physical Activity and Sports teaching in School
  2. To improve students health and wellbeing through activity and healthy eating as part of Healthy Schools.
  3. To enable students at all levels of physical development to improve their understaning and skills
  4. To increase the range of sporting activities offered to include outdoor learning and increased access into community sports events.
  5. To improve the attainment levels of students in PE and Sport, including impact on Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development.

In 2017-18 we have received: £16,490
