Sports Premium


"The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officer guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week). 

The PE and Sport Premium can help primary schools to achieve this aim, providing primary schools with £320m of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils. The PE and Sport Premium survey highlighted the significant impact which PE and Sport has had in many primary schools across England."

How We Are Using The Funding At Wadhurst?

Here at Wadhurst we pride ourselves on offering a broad and in-depth curriculum and therefore we use the sports premium funding effectively in order to be able to offer a sports curriculum which meets the needs of all pupils across the school.   

In order to achieve this we work very closely with Uplands Community College so that we can draw on their experience to be able to offer a range of activities and opportunities to all pupils.

The investment in various sports partnerships gives our school access to staff development, specialist teaching and a wide variety of inter-school competitions.
