_______________________ PE and Sport Premium


The PE and Sport Premium is a  grant given to schools by the Government every year. It must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils,  to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


For the 2023-24 academic year, Riverside Bridge School received £16,620 funding.
Physical Development and Physical Education are fundamental parts of our curriculum offer and the school utilised the funding, in line with the Department for Education Guidance, as shown in the report below:

The effect ofthe premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
All our pupils are making steady progress in PE. Their skills are improving and the pupils are given the opportunity to develop and practise the skills taught during their weekly 2×45 minutes PE sessions at  break and lunch times with equipment provided. As many of our pupils are motivated by food, this is enabling us to help combat the risk of obesity.
The impact of this funding is monitored through pupils’ progress reviews and reports to governors.
As a new and expanding school we are currently increasing our equipment stores for both the PE department and the break and lunchtime experiences. More equipment needs to be available to extend key skills and improve the opportunities to children dependent on the topics taught.
With the introduction on our Growth curriculum, pupils will now be able to access swimming lessons (providing risk of COVID-19 allows).
