Sports Premium Funding
As with all school funds, we are fully accountable to our stakeholders in how we are ensuring maximum impact from the Sports Premium. Below is outlined an evaluation of spending this academic year and its impact upon our pupils’ opportunities.
At Penpol School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Over the past academic year, we have made Physical Education a key priority at our school. In addition to the many clubs we already had running at Penpol, we have provided opportunities for more diverse activities within school hours - such as surfing, tennis, dance and cricket - and in the form of onsite after-school clubs - such as street dance, rugby and ballet.
In addition to a regular morning routine of ‘wake and shake’, during which pupils and teachers get their hearts pumping to a choreographed dance routine, children at Penpol also have access to a brand new ‘trim trail’ (adventure climbing apparatus) and plenty of sports equipment to enjoy at break and lunch times.
Our primary school’s Sports Funding will enable us to continue to extend our provision of fun, engaging and challenging activities, through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
