The Government’s Sports Premium Grant was funded initially for a two year period from 2013. It is designed to raise the profile of sports and healthy lifestyles for pupils, creating a legacy in schools. More now than ever, it is essential that we use this funding to provide pupils at Poppleton Road Primary School with the tools to lead an active healthy life style.

Ofsted assess and report on how effectively this funding is being used to improve PE and sport provision making a judgement on the quality of Leadership and Management. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels of which they are capable.

At Poppleton Road Primary we continue to use this funding to further raise the standard of our fantastic sports provision which includes:

  • Specialist Sports Practitioners.
  • High Quality CPD for Teachers and Teaching Assistants.
  • Effective PE Equipment and Resources.
  • Sports Partnership Competition Package.
  • A wide range of extra curricular sports clubs.
  • Swimming Lessons.
  • Lunch time Play Leaders.
  • 5 a day Fitness

Poppleton Road Primary School is committed to the highest quality of provision for sports across the school. The school received £19309 from the Sports premium fund and this is used to promote a wide range and support high quality sport in school for all pupils.

We work in partnership with York Schools Sports Partnership and a variety of sports providers to offer an extensive range of after school clubs to meet the needs and interests of all children.

Through partnerships we participate in both training and development, inter-school and regional competitions enabling pupils from both Key Stages to participate in both fun and competitive sports.

School staff have the opportunity to go on yearly training provided by the partnership as well as working alongside our PE specialist.
