At Springside, we recognise the impact of PE on the health and well-being of our children and believe that a varied PE curriculum and vast range of extra-curricular opportunities have a positive impact on the children in our school community. We endeavour to give our children opportunities to experience different sporting challenges as they move through the school, and to develop their talents in appropriate competitive formats.

The government’s commitment to provide funding for Primary PE and Sport means that we can now look to further develop and enhance the experience of our children in this area. The funding entitles our school to £8335.  As of September 2017 the sports premium funding has doubled. This means that, in the academic year 2017-18, we received £16,670 to develop PE and Sport in our school.

As a school we have been striving to develop our Physical Education programme and with the support of the government funding, improvements are beginning to show. Information on previous year's spending and impact can be found using the right hand side menu.

We are yet to receive our allocation for the academic year 2018 - 2019 but have created an action plan based on the previous year's allocation.

The 2018 - 2019 PE & Sport Premium WILL HELP US TO PROVIDE:
