If your child is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) it is important that you let the school know as soon as possible. Please contact the school office on 01637 873958. Should you need to report this to us outside of normal school hours, you can complete a secure report form on our website and a member of staff will make contact with you as soon as possible. Visit our website: scminor@kernowlearning.co.uk Please note: Our till system has been down since the beginning of term. This means that your child's meals are not showing on ParentPay. These will be added and charged in due course so please ensure there are sufficient funds on your child's account to cover any meals already taken and any to be taken in the coming week. Thank you.

PE & Sports Premium Allocation & Offer

Sports Premium Funding

Sports Premium Grant (SPG) was funded in 2015/6 according to the number of pupils in Year 1 – 6 and those aged 5 in Reception on the January 2015 census. Our academy has been allocated £8000 + £5 per eligible pupil. This meant we had a total grant 2015/2016 of £10, 660. (Please refer to previous reports to view expenditure for 2013/2014 and 2014/2015.)

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.”
