For the current academic year (2015-2016) we will receive approximately £8235 of 'Sports Premium' income.
At Kirk Ireton Primary, we believe that every child should enjoy sport and physical activity and have opportunities to try as many things as possible and find success in that.
We are using our Sports Premium to ensure that we are able to give every child opportunities to take part in competitive sport, particularly by funding transport to cluster or district tournaments, be taught by enthusiastic and well-trained staff and have the resources that will ensure a high-quality curriculum for all.
We have also allocated funding £1300 to being part of the Anthony Gell and District Sports Partnerships who provide all the tournaments that the children are able to compete in.
This year, a large proportion of our Sports Premium has been spent funding a Sports Apprentice (£2000) to join our staff one day per week and support sports in school and also lunchtime and after-school clubs.
Where appropriate, we also use the funding to ensure that no child ever misses out on an physical experience because of financial constraints.
