How the PE and Sport grant is used
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of their physical activity (PE) and sport activities:
- to develop or add to the PE and sport that the school provide
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
What does the PE and sport premium mean for our school
At Kings Mill we believe in an all-inclusive approach to the development of sport, physical activity and the promotion of a healthy active lifestyle. We encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of the resources that the school has whilst enhancing PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all our pupils.
The school completes the Youth Sport Trust audit which honestly assesses our sport provision and outcomes in PE and school sport. We have achieved five successive gold awards and were rewarded with the School Games Platinum award for 2019/20 recognising the consistently high standard of sport provision within the school and this has continues to be maintained. We have also been won the East Riding award for the 'most active school' for the second year running.
