At Tregolls School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The first year was very productive and we spent over £30,000 on PE and sport, including building two 3G all weather pitches.
We are committed to continue with using this resource in developing a high quality PE curriculum, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil (£16,600 for 2017/18).
At Tregolls we are using our funding to enhance the PE curriculum and Sport via investment in new, high quality resources, re-design of the playground in becoming a sports arena, being part of the Penair School Sports Partnership, a renewed curriculum including surfing, archery and Judo, quality professional development, recruitment of specialist sports coaches, gymnastics, boxercise and dance coaches. Obviously, this is at a cost that is well over the grant, but we only want the best for our children at Tregolls.
Since we introduced Judo into the curriculum the school is proud to have the British School’s champion and the medal for the chidren’s European championships. Prior to the school starting with Judo in the curriculum neither T-Jay (British schools champion) or Jade (European bronze medal holder) participated in Judo.
Below is an attached statement of exactly what we have spent our funding on for the Academic year 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17. So far we have spent well over £33,868 to support the school in raising the quality of PE and Sport Provision.
Please see the impact statement for Sports Premium funding for last year – end of summer 2017- you will be able to see the positive impact of our spending on PE and sport throughout the academic year 2016-17. Our impact statement for 2017-18 outlines our targets to improve provision.

Sport Premium Impact
Please find attached all of the wonderful things that we have spent the money on and the massive impact it has had on PE and sport within school. We have particularly been focused on encouraging pupils who are eligible for pupil premium funding to attend extra curricular and provision of wider sporting opportunities such as archery and golf.
