Sports Premium Funding
|At Oakwood we believe that developing capabilities across a range of subjects is vital, and physical activity is important in developing the whole child. In 2015 we received £9460.00 as part of the Governments initiative to improve PE and sports in primary schools is used to fund almost all of the cost of commissioning Sportitude which is organised by Mr Mark Griffiths. We received £5553 in November 2015 and anticipate that the academic year funding for 2016 will remain at a similar level to the previous year. Mr Griffiths is a qualified, experienced and proven professional sports coach to work with children at the school, on a regular basis. Mr Griffiths also runs extra-curricular activities, and organises collaborative projects with external organisations. Students develop physical and technical skills in general fitness and specific sports. The impact of such activities include positive impacts on health and well being, team-working skills, collaboration, communication and also seasonal sports. Through the Sportitude programme:
In addition to Sportitude, we run a football club for children to enjoy once a week.
We have used £3797.00 of the funding received so far, and provision of PE will continue to the same level until the end of the academic year. This will mean that all the Sports Premium Funding will be spent this academic year and the shortfall will be met through the school budget. PE also continues to be taught by classroom teachers in addition to the expert provision by Mr Griffiths.
