Pupil Sport Premium funding has been used to support and develop a range of skills for staff and pupils and to an active and healthy lifestyle. The approach we have taken at Forest Academy is based on the desire to ensure all children benefit from the funding regardless of their sporting ability and that the most able children are given the opportunity to participate in high level Competitions.

The school employs a sports specialist company to cover our PE Provision who on a weekly basis delivers CPD for areas identified for specific training needs within the school. All teaching staff will receive training at some point throughout the year. We also invest the funds into training staff for the lunchtime organisers to introduce playground games. The school has also been able to increase competitive opportunities through payment of competition fees, travel to competitions and employs coaching staff to provide additional weekly after school sport through the ’Active Schools’ scheme.

We work towards developing healthy lifestyles through our Health Awareness Week which is a week dedicated to healthy living. This week offers a range of activities throughout the school and helps to create links with local sports clubs gives us the opportunity to bring in PE specialists to enrich our curriculum. Parents are kept updated on progress in PE and sport throughout the year via newsletters and the school website. We have also opted with sports mentoring to encourage leadership, teamwork and gain further skills among our school to engage and learn to be role models. The Pupil Sport Premium funding has enabled the school to build on the quality of PE and sports provision throughout the school. The impact on skill development is already evident in PE assessments, also in the enthusiasm and high participation in the lunchtime activities.
