How is the Sports Premium used to support learning and teaching of PE in school? 


We will continue to use this additional funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in Eppleton Academy. 


  •   All children receive at least two hours of physical activity per week; this year, children will receive PE for one afternoon per week. This will be taught over two lessons - one with a PE lead teacher in school, the other with an external coach/expert in a sport or discipline beyond our current curriculum. 
  •   We hope that this timetabling will give pupils the opportunity to access an enhanced range of sports beyond that which they would normally enjoy in school. 
  •   In addition, we will extend some of the activities into after-school clubs. 
  •   Some funding will be used to support staff continuous professional development, to up-skill staff, who may then support other staff in school. 
  •   Resources will be purchased that will provide new sporting opportunities, e.g. specific sporting equipment and staff training.

What is the impact of Sport Premium Funding?


  •        Some children, who were initially reluctant participants, are now more active and confident to participate in PE lessons and some have now joined after-school clubs.
  •        In pupil and parent questionnaires, the majority agreed or strongly agreed that the school provides a good range of extra-curricular activities.
  •        Children have benefited from extra sporting days, e.g. those with Olympic athletes.
  •        High quality PE delivered by expert coaches on a weekly basis
  •        Children begin swimming in Year 3 with little or no swimming skills, most achieving 25m by the year end
  •        Children have the opportunity to access a range of after school activity based clubs
  •        We are developing a passion for sport and physical activity with some of our children going on to compete at local and regional level in a variety of disciplines.
