Sport Premium Overview
At Queens Road Academy we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
Allocations have been calculated using data from the January 2016 school census. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools receive £500 per pupil. The last grant Queens Road Academy received was to the value of £8925 (2017)
In Summer 2016 Queens Road was also fortunate to receive a National Lotteries grant to further promote school sporting opportunity. This has enabled access to organised sport every lunchtime.

What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?
‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).
At Queens Road Academy we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:
Raising standards of all our children in Physical Education
|Raising standards of all our children in Physical Education|
