To develop the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics, the government provides funding to all primary schools to improve sporting opportunities, participation and the quality of physical education offered to children.
The primary sports premium grant awarded to Beaconside in 2019-2020, saw us further develop and embed the successes from the previous year which included strengthening links with external clubs, extending our swimming provision, introducing the concept of active learning in other curriculum areas, and running projects focusing upon healthy eating and well-being. Further details on spend and impact can be found in the impact statement below.
Unfortunately, our progress towards achieving the Platinum Sports Mark status was halted due to Covid-19 ending the school year so early, so at present we proudly retain our Gold Sports Mark status. However we are delighted to have been presented with two alternative awards: the first in acknowledgement of our provision during the first two two terms and the second to recognise the efforts made by the school and its pupils to support and engage with virtual programmes during the lockdown period.
Plans to further strengthen our provision in 2020-2021 were hindered by the impact of Covid-19 and the subsequent restrictions, lockdown and bubble closures. However full details can be found below in our impact statement of the achievements and developments made.
We very much hope that 2021-2022 will see our provision get back to its full potential. The development plan below details the steps we intend to take.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
