Sports Premium funding 

Sports Premium funding is money provided by the DfE to Primary Schools to improve the quality of PE provision, where some schools may not have access to specialist teaching.

At Yewstock we are fortunate to be able to offer specialist PE teaching for pupils across the school.  We fully believe in and encourage the benefit of an active and healthy lifestyle and developing an interest and mastery of a chosen sport.  Sport is important for well-being and developing fitness, motor skills, concentration, attitude and achievement.

We offer a wide range of Sports provision, including participation in local and county sporting events.  Some of our pupils benefit from traditional school sports whilst others require a more specialist, multi-sensory approach.  We use the Sports Premium funding to develop this provision for the benefit of all pupils.


2013/14 – £5021

2014/15 – £8532

In the Summer of 2014 we installed a multi-use games area (MUGA) at the school which has improved the provision for pupils.  This cost £8940.

In 2014 we purchased a trampoline and three members of staff were trained in Rebound Therapy, a programme to support pupils with physical and sensory difficulties.  This can lead to enhanced balance, co-ordination, stimulation and relaxation.
