The Government has currently committed to retaining the Primary Sports Premium and using the "Sugar Tax" from 2017-18 is going to double the amount of funding for it.  If funding should end at a future date, we have ensured that our provision is sustainable by:

  • Using Professional Sports Coaches to train and upskill School Staff;
  • Making use of Schemes of Work and Lesson Planning on Premier Sport portal in line with the current curriculum
  • Membership of a strong local sports partnership  (WOKSSA) to facilitate inter-school and specialist competitions;
  • Establishing relationships with local Independent School who give us use of their specialist sports facilities. e.g. Benenden Girls School who facilitate a Healthy Week every second year
