PE & Sports Premium

The governors at St Columb Minor Academy have always been committed to four key aims when considering how to use this funding to enhance and improve the quality of curricular and extra-curricular PE for all of our pupils through identified and targeted expenditure: 
  • Ensure we have quality resources that support a broad and balanced curriculum.
  • Increase the skills and knowledge of staff through CPD.
  • Increase the participation/ engagement levels of all children within the academy.
  • Ensure there is sustainable impact from the expenditure beyond the funding years.

Every year we evaluate the impact of the sports premium expenditure to ensure we are meeting the 4 aims above and to ensure we have a sustainable legacy beyond the funding years.

“The school has made good use of the additional funding it receives to extend its provision for sport and physical education. Leaders have used the extra money to increase the range of sporting activities and the number of pupils who participate in them. It has also been invested in order to provide effective training for the staff.”
