Our use of the funding

We are committed to ensure that this funding is used to support extension of our current good provision and to building sustainable staff development in training, partnerships and developing PE and Sports through initiatives and resources.


The award has been used to –

  • maintain and develop our current provision;

  • further develop our partnership with Streetly Academy, Walsall Council and other Walsall schools (staff development and league competition);

  • enhance training for staff to develop sustainability;

  • increase our current provision to develop high impact activities to support our aims to improve levels of activity in all of our children.


    This is in addition to our well developed PE and Sport Curriculum, delivered during the school day and to our current extra-curricular activities, clubs, league games, competitions and our 5 day residential experience offered in Year 6. This also enriches the schools work with the Heights and Weights Team, who gather information on Y4 and Y6 children.
