REACH for the stars and beyond. Together, with God's love, we can dream, believe and achieve
The government has given every primary school funding to develop physical education and competitive sport. At Battyeford Primary School, we have received £19600 from the government for Sport Premium Funding for the year 2021-2022. 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. We also use the funding for many other areas, which can be found in the Sports Premium Impact Statement below, as well as the P.E breakdown.
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 their Sports Co-ordinators working closely with teachers and pupils throughout the year.
Pennine Sports Partnership has been involved with the school for a number of years and operate as co-ordinators for the Mirfield family of schools. Their 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.
The Sports Co-ordinators also deliver Sports Premium teaching. They work 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.
