As a school we enter school sport competitions to allow children to be competitive and are constantly developing our PE programme.
We aim to:

4 Achieve healthy schools Gold award (we currently hold the silver award)
Primary School's Sports Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014 - 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary schools.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for the next two academic years. Our funding for the academic year 2016-2017 is £5,995
Purpose of funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that:
The Sports funding will be used at Comber Grove to:
We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
Invested in the London PE and sports Network through Bacons College, who have provided the infrastructure for organising our involvement in competitive sport. This membership also provides us with CPD opportunities tailored to our schools needs and access to the ‘Real PE’ curriculum with appropriate training for staff.
We use the funding we receive to continue our work with the Bacon's Sports Partnership and also continue to build on our links with a number of organisations that provide exercise and opportunities for promoting health.

And for the Future:
We are currently looking for skilled sports coaches to provide various activities for the children to participate in during their lunch breaks and some PE lessons. We also plan to update the school playground with a range of sports markings to facilitate active play/sports, developing a safe but active use of the playground at break times.
