For the financial year 2020 - 2021 PE and Sports Premium funding was allocated to years 1 to 6 to promote improvements in PE and sport in primary schools.

in addition to the targeted funding the school has further developed PE and Sport through the following activities which have been funded from the school's budget or from additional funding:
- Continuing to fund a PE Specialist to develop the school's approach to PE and sport.
- Further developing extra-curricular sports provision
- Continuing to develop and implement the long term plan for PE
- Pupils having access to a wider range of PE and Sports activities during the school day
- Extra-curricular provision including PE and Sports activities has increased thus widening the availability of provision to all pupils
- The focus on teaching high quality PE lessons is clear with continuous development of the lesson plans, schemes of work and half termly check ins. Therefore, there is an increased participation of pupils in lessons as they enjoy the subject.
During the 2020 - 2021 academic year, the pandemic greatly disrupted the plans for our PE development as we were unable to complete our residential trip, partake in swimming and we had to limit the external providers coming into the school. A number of our pupils remained at home during the pandemic lockdowns but in order to support their PE provision we ran remote learning PE lessons and activities to support their engagement in healthy, active lifestyles.
