blackwell first school bromsgrove 12SPORT PREMIUM

From Autumn 2013, schools have received School Sport Funding to spend on School Sport. During 2018-19, Blackwell continued to prioritise inter school competitive sport, staff professional development through the use of two specialist sport teachers and developing the sporting opportunities available to children through extra curricular clubs as well as all Year 4s engaging in water sports. The school was allocated £8,485. This has led to 100% of children taking part in inter school competitive sport through our membership of the Bromsgrove 'All Active Academy', 100% of children participating in after school sport and staff training in gymnastics, games, badminston and cricket ensuring that all PE lessons taught are at a good or better level. In September 2014-2019, Blackwell attained the Gold Kitemark for Sport in school. In 2019-20, the Sport Premium will be spent on: extra curricular clubs for 100% of children; competitive sporting opportunities for 100% of children and staff professional development. The impact of this will be measured throughout the year through quality of PE teaching, attendance and success at competitive events and the retention of the Platinum Kite
