In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. This funding is ring-fenced, to be used for sport specific areas, to make an impact in Physical Education and Sport in schools.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Current numbers on roll
Number of children in Years 1 to 6 who are eligible for Sport Premium = 348
Funding received for 2017/18:
£16,000 plus £10 per pupil aged 5-11 years old = Total £ 19,480

We strongly believe in using this opportunity to considerably enhance our sports provision at Coddington CofE Primary and the following indicates how this funding is used and how it impacts school:
Nottingham Forest Community Trust
(Premier League Primary Stars – PLPS)
Use of high quality sports coaches to work with both staff and pupils.
Installation of outdoor gym equipment to provide children with a range of physical exercises to increase cardio strength, muscular tone, flexibility and co-ordination.
Continue to refresh existing PE equipment.
Increased participation of pupils in sport, through the introduction of new sporting activities / clubs.
Continued participation in local sporting fixtures, along with the opportunity to extend this to events linked to School Games.
Continued Professional Development (CPD)
CPD opportunities for staff focusing on key areas that have been highlighted for development.
Alongside all of this, Coddington CofE Primary are active members of the ‘Newark and District Primary Schools Sports Association (NDPSAA) and the ‘Together for Newark’ network and also work with Newark and Sherwood District Council to develop opportunities. This allows teachers to network with each other schools in the local area and for the participation of pupils in local competition.
