In 2015/16 Goodnestone CE Primary School decided to use the Sports Premium Funding of £8,515 to enhance sport provision in the school in the following ways:

  • All classes work with a sports coach throughout the year, who is delivering the PE curriculum in collaboration with the class teachers
  • After-school provision has been widened at a reduced cost providing a sports club once a week after school. The school offers a rolling programme of Archery, Ball skills, Cricket, Rounders, Athletics, Football and Tag Rugby during the school year.
  • A Bollywood Dance teacher worked across the school

The combined impact of these activities enhanced competitive sport, developed teachers knowledge and increased pupil access to sports.

In 2016/17 the school will receive Sports Premium Funding to enhance sport provision. After reflecting on the previous academic year, the school continues to offer:

  • All classes work with a sports coach throughout the year, who is delivering the PE curriculum in collaboration with the class teachers
  • After-school provision has been widened at a reduced cost providing a sports club once a week after school. The school offers a rolling programme of Archery, Ball Skills, Cricket, Rounders, Athletics, Football and Tag Rugby during the school year.

The school has also offered a Yoga taster session.

The governors are currently considering how to allocate the additional Sports Premium funding which has been allocated during this financial year.
