Sports and PE

The school's Sports Coach, Mr Lloyd-Clarke provides a wide range of sporting opportunities and experiences for our pupils. He runs before and after school sports provisions and has recently introduce the Daily Mile.
We are active members of the Colchester Primary Sports League and participate and many inter-schools competions in a range of sports.
PE and Sports Premium Funding
Our school receives PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in school. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
We use our premium to:
- develop and add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers
- make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Total funding for 2019-20 = £19,127
Total funding received for 2018-19 = £18,608
