PE and Sport Premium Funding

This year we are investing in professional development through a partnership with Primary Sports who also work with other schools within Acorn MAT. They are supporting us to develop and deliver an exciting rolling programme of sports throughout the year including taking part in a whole range of sports fixtures with other schools. You can read more about some of these in our termly sports newsletter:

The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

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. This year Loders will receive £16,000, plus an additional £10 per pupil.

At Loders we value highly the importance of Physical Education for all our pupils and already provide a curriculum enhanced by a range of extra-curricular activities. Our aims in this area include:

  • Developing fine and gross motor skills/spatial awareness and sports specific skills
  • Developing personal and social skills, such as resilience, teamwork, sportsmanship
  • Developing an awareness of how to keep healthy and stay safe
  • Developing greater levels of fitness and stamina
  • Developing leadership skills
  • Developing tactical awareness
  • Facilitating greater participation in sport in and outside of school

Notice to Parents

The Trust Board of Acorn Multi Academy Trust has agreed to submit a request for a variation to be made to the Admissions arrangements for Loders CE Primary Academy for 2021-22, in respect of the over-subscription criteria relating to church attendance.

The variation requested is that " In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these [admissions] arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship". Please follow this link to the amended 2021 Admissions Policy and Supplementary Information Form (SIF)
