Nurturing Achievement: Growing and learning together
The government has given every primary school funding to develop physical education and competitive sport. At Battyeford Primary School, we have received £19660 from the government for Sport Premium Funding. With this money, we have bought services from the Pennine Sports Partnership with the long term aim of providing outstanding teaching and learning of physical education for all.
Battyeford Primary uses their annual sports premium funding to buy into the Pennine Sports Partnership. By joining the partnership, Battyeford Primary has lots of sporting opportunities available to sign up to. We are also very lucky to have Steve Goodall working closely with teachers and pupils throughout the year.
Steve Goodall has worked for the Pennine Sports Partnership for a number of years. He is currently the coordinator for the Mirfield family of schools. His main role is to organise sporting events for KS1 and KS2. These events normally take place at local primary schools and MFG. Such events include; kwik cricket, basketball and cross- country.
Mr Goodall also delivers Sports Premium teaching. He works alongside staff as part of their CPD to increase teacher confidence with regards to the delivery of physical education and active learning.
Each pupil at Battyeford Primary School has always given great feedback from the work that the Pennine staff continue to provide to us. Many children have commented on their own continued love for sport and the fun that comes with it. We intend to continue to be part of the Sports Partnership for many years to come.
