Sports Premium

School Games Gold

From September 2013 all primary schools received additional government funding specifically for the development of sport within each school. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. In 2017-18, Red Barn Community Primary School received £9,035 and used the funding to develop the quality of provision across the school within PE lessons and to extend the opportunities available for pupils. Last year, for the fourth year running, we achieved the Gold Kite Mark for our commitment to high quality PE Provision.

What do we offer?

We employ a specialist PE teacher (Sue Gardiner) 1 day per week from Henry Cort Community College, to work alongside teaching staff during PE lessons. This provision aims to deepen understanding and confidence in the teaching of PE across all primary age classes. In addition, from the Summer we look forward to welcoming Dave Rowland to our team. Dave is a specialist Sports Coach and will be working one afternoon a week alongside Sue Gardiner and Staff supporting high quality curriculum PE provision.

Alongside this specialist teaching, help and support is given to organise and run intra and inter school sporting competitions. We participate regularly in competitions at local cluster events (Level 2 competitions) throughout the year.
