Sports Premium 2014-2015

We received £8000 in additional government funding for sport in schools known as Sports Premium Funding for 2014/15.

Our key objectives in planning the use of this additional funding remained as stated for the first year of the funding, 2013/14,
set out below. In addition, having obtained the silver level Sainsbury’s sport award in 2013/14 we aimed to achieve gold in 2014/15. This would demonstrate continued improvement in our sport provision and the impact on pupil participation.



  • We continued to fund additional specialist coaching, including weekly gymnastic coaching.
  • Additional sports equipment was purchased for pupils to use in PE lessons and during break times.
  • Transport to and from inter-school sports events was subsidised; as a rural school with no other schools in walking distance transport costs are substantial. 
  • We continued to buy into the inter-school competition and festivals of sport scheme run in co-operation with other local primary and secondary schools.
  • Professional development was provided for staff


The school obtained the Sainsbury’s gold level award demonstrating the impact of sports provision across the school and improvement from 2013/14.  For more information on the Sainsbury's School Games, please visit
