What is the Impact of the Sports Premium Grant?
The impact of this funding has been:
- An enhanced and inclusive sport provision which inspires and engages all pupils.
- Children have increased access to sport through lunch and after school clubs. The impact has been an increase in attendance with now 85% of children in KS2 attending lunch or after school clubs and 19% of these being the least active children.
- We have increased links with outside clubs in the local area which has lead to more children attending clubs outside of school. (Martial arts/ Grimsby Town). Children have been picked to join the Clee Rugby Club/ Grimsby Town Under 11's Football Teams etc.
- Children have a greater enjoyment of PE and place a higher value on sport and healthy lifestyles. (Pupil Voice/ PE Newsletters/ Sections in Assemblies)
- As a result of more lunch time activities, behaviour has improved at lunchtimes and within lesson times (See Data).
- Sports leaders support dinner ladies in lunch time provision and have developed their leadership abilities. They are also responsible for sending out a PE/ Sports Newsletter every half term and have developed cross curricular learning to do so.
