PE & Sport Premium

The PE and Sport Premium allocation for Yarlside Academy is £18,160 for the academic year 2022/23. Here at Yarlside, we have a strong sporting history, with participation in local community and county competitions alongside non-competitive events. The funding will be used to maintain our high standards within the PE curriculum and school sport.

This year we intend on using the budget to:

  • Develop and increase access to a wider range of sports activities.
  • Continuing professional development of school staff.
  • Employ community coaches to deliver focused sessions to pupils in a wide range of sports.
  • Support our pupils with access to outdoor education centres.
  • To increase the range of extra-curricular PE and sport clubs with the aim of providing access for all.
