The National Sports Premium was first introduced in 2003 following a very successful London Olympic Games. The purpose of this funding is to improve the provision of PE and Sport within school by enhancing good teaching practice, offering a wide range of sports and activities and motivating all pupils to pursue a healthy lifestyle that includes participation in physical activity and sport.
The Sports Premium supplements an already established inclusive curriculum with excellent opportunities for all pupils irrespective of their innate physical ability.
At Hope School we have invested in specialist sports coaches and teachers to provide excellent CPD opportunities. This has increased the confidence, knowledge and skills of all our members of staff and has further enhanced our out of school hours sport sessions. We have also introduced some exciting and unique physical activities to meet the needs of a diverse and differentiated pupil population.
