Primary PE and Sport Premium at Poppleton Road Primary School

Poppleton Road Primary School is committed to the highest quality of provision for sports across the school. The school received £19309 from the Sports premium fund and this is used to promote a wide range and support high quality sport in school for all pupils.

We work in partnership with York Schools Sports Partnership and a variety of sports providers to offer an extensive range of after school clubs to meet the needs and interests of all children.

Through partnerships we participate in both training and development, inter-school and regional competitions enabling pupils from both Key Stages to participate in both fun and competitive sports.

School staff have the opportunity to go on yearly training provided by the partnership as well as working alongside our PE specialist.
