Sport Premium Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
As of 2017-18, the sport Premium has doubled and Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Children at Oasis Academy Byron are encouraged to participate in a variety of sporting activities ranging from fitness, dance, and athletics to team games such as basketball, football and rounders. From Year 3 onwards children attend swimming lessons.
Whilst urging the children to do their best at all times, we also believe that children should learn to enjoy taking part and that winning is not the only mark of achievement.
The Academy is a member of the local Coulsdon Cluster and benefits from participating in a range of local organised competitions. .
Children are also given opportunities to develop their sporting skills at lunchtimes, when a programme of organised sports is provided.
The Academy has benefitted from the new government Sports Grant funding for primary schools which aims to improve the provision of PE and sport so that all children develop healthy lifestyles. Byron is committed to get best value from this new funding and to give our children high quality opportunities to develop their own health and fitness and to provide them with new opportunities to become involved in sport.
