PE & Sport Premium

The PE and Sport Premium allocation for Yarlside Academy is £18,390 for the academic year 2021/22. Here at Yarlside, we have a strong sporting history and the funding will be used to maintain our high standards in PE and school sport.

This year we intend on using the budget to:

  • Improve our resources
  • Ensure that staff have access to relevant and up to date courses.
  • Employ community coaches to deliver sessions to pupils in a wide range of sports.
  • Allow our pupils access to outdoor education at Water Park.
  • To employ staff to support a wider range of extra-curricular sporting clubs and the entries of B&C teams to competitions.

In recent years, the money was spent on purchasing a climbing wall, which is now located next to the KS1 playground. This resource has improved our provision of outdoor education within PE.

The EYFS outdoor learning area, KS1 and KS2 playgrounds have had new playground lines installed. This has promoted cross curricular active learning opportunities within school time and at after school clubs.

We have recently installed two football goals with netball targets on the KS1 playground. This has supported the school’s extra-curricular netball club, invasion games delivery within PE and provided KS1 children the opportunity to lead healthy lifestyles during break times.

We also renewed equipment and enrolled staff on up-to-date training courses to improve their subject knowledge.
We have continued to offer a wide range of extra-curricular sporting clubs as a result we have continued to participate in the various different school sporting competitions organised by the SGO.

Recent achievements within PE and School Sport include the ‘Platinum Award’ 2018/19- 2019-20 Kitemark.

In recent years, Yarlside has been recognised for the following awards by the Furness SGO: 

  • Furness Team of the Year 2019
  • Furness Competition Award 2019
  • Furness Competition Award 2020
