Sports Premium Statement – 2016/17
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum in the academic years 2013/2014,2014/2015 and 2015/16 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools and this is set to continue in 2016/17. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. In 2016/17 it is anticipated that Pennine Way Junior Academy will receive £9555.00 of sports Premium Funding

How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development; that we increase the number of children participating in sport in our school.
Our priorities mean that the funding for 2016/17 will be used to:
Provide professional coaches in Hockey, Basketball, Dance, Rugby, Cricket and tennis to work alongside classteachers, to provide both high quality teaching and coaching for our pupils in these sports in addition to training for our classteachers to deliver lessons once the sports premium has finished.
We have also appointed a sports leader to support both our curriculum and extra-curricular sports activities in 2016/17.
We are also part of the local sports association and pay a subscription to them to take part in their competitions and events.
We will endeavour to use the funding to make high quality PE and sport sustainable. Our CPD programme and utilising coaches who have links to local clubs to provide further participation opportunities beyond the school day will help achieve this.
