The Sports Premium Grant allows schools to improve access, participation and enjoyment of competitive sport.
In the financial year 2014/15 All Saints' Primary received £8,905 and in 2015/16 All Saints' received £9479.25
We used the sports grant to build a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) on a little used patch of ground on our school site. This allowed children to play team games all year round. The surface is safer than the old concrete or uneven grass.
To finance this build, the school raised its own funds. ASSA (our parents association) contributed £35,000 and the Board of Governors has also raised £25,000. With additional school funds, a grant from the John Lyons Trust and the Sports Premium, we completed the build in April 2016.
Between 2016 and 2018 we received a similar amount of money each year. We have used the money to:
The grant from the government will not exist every year and we feel it is important that the money spent will have a long lasting legacy. The building of the school MUGA, the purchase of a minibus and new school resources and the training of a long serving member of staff will benefit the children for many years to come.
