As part of the governments continued drive to promote healthy and active lifestyles among children and young people, they are providing a generous Sports premium grant to schools over three years.
Sellincourt's allocated grant per year is approximately £9,500 and the details of the priorities for spending are detailed below.
In 2014, we secured further funding through the Primary Spaces programme for a much needed overhaul of our outside space to include the addition of a multi-sports games area. We have also allocated some of the Sports Premium Grant to buy in some additional features for our new sports/games area, including a running track, fixed nets, goals and cricket equipment.
The construction of the multi-sports games area will begin in the summer holidays and we are hoping it will be completed in time for the Autumn Term. It will be situated in the KS2 playground and will be used by pupils throughout the school. We are very excited about the increased sporting opportunities this will offer all our children, staff and community.
