A Brief Introduction
At Chantry Primary Academy we recognise the importance of delivering a rich and engaging curriculum. A curriculum which promotes the development of both the health, and well-being of the children within our care. As such, teachers and sports coaches plan and teach a variety of engaging lessons which meet the needs of both the Primary National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
Whilst there are many ways to spend our allocated funding, Chantry Primary Academy will be spending the money to support not just the teaching and learning of our children today, but also create a sporting legacy. As a result of this, the money is in the process of being spent strategically.
Currently Chantry Primary Academy uses the Sports Premium funding by:
- Engaging all pupils in regular physical activity
- Raising the profile of PE across the school as a tool for school improvement
- Increasing the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE and sport
- Offering a broad range of sports and activities to pupils both within and outside of the school day
- Increasing pupil participation in competitive sport
- Improving mental wellbeing among pupils
Building upon our Current Success
Whilst the sports premium money is aiding our school in developing the opportunities for our learning community, Chantry Primary Academy is, and always has been committed to sport. This is reflected in our current practice across the school. We currently participate actively with our School Games Team and network with schools across our borough to encourage competition within a range of sports. Furthermore, our PE planning demonstrates an emerging commitment to competitions within our own community. This can be highlighted best by our recent qualification for the School Games Gold Award. In addition to our exciting and diverse curriculum, Chantry Primary Academy is committed to extending opportunities within sport during its extra-curricular clubs. Sports premium funding is being used to support these types of clubs and monitored participation rates reflect an improving amount of children accessing extra sport.
