What is Sports Premium?

The government is providing all schools with additional funding to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and Sports in schools. This funding is ring-fenced which means it can only be used for its specified purpose.

How are we using the Sports Premium?

Here at Castle Hill School we are using the Sport Premium to enhance the learning opportunities of our pupils. Staff are trained to deliver high quality PE and school sport to all.

For 2019/2020 Castle Hill School is expecting to receive an allocation of £16,510.

The funding will be used as follows:

Please see table below for description of the effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment


Review of 2018 – 2019 Sports Premium Spend

The majority of our current year 6 cohort experience learning in water.  For most, this involves accessing the school’s hydrotherapy pool where they engage in personalised programmes to promote strength, flexibility and relaxation whilst also working on communication and interaction skills. Some pupils access swimming lessons at the public swimming baths where they work on a range of early swimming and water confidence skills.  However, due to our pupils’ physical and learning needs it is not appropriate to teach the swimming skills identified in guidelines for publishing information about year 6 swimming.
