Primary Sports Grant:

At Belfield we believe a happy child is a healthy child, keeping active keeps the brain working. We have always provided a range of sporting activities for the children.

Amount: £14,766 2017/18

School contributes to this amount to enable us to deliver the provision detailed below. School provides equipment for all activities.

How it is being spent:

We are spending some of our grant on swimming provision in KS2. £7,000. We have allocated smaller group sizes and additional staff.

Many of our children do not go swimming as a family or with friends out of school time.

All of our children live near to the local canal.

Swimming is an active and healthy way to exercise the whole of the body and an essential skill to have when living near waterways.

We have increased our sports equipment so all children have the equipment needed to take an active participation in PE.

Some funding is used to transport teams to the various competitions.

Ed Start £6,500 are supporting us this year to provide a range of different activities over lunchtime and an after school sports provision.

In addition the coach works alongside teachers to enhance the teaching of PE
