Measuring the impact of PP funding:

We monitor children’s progress and attainment 4 times a year, checking the impact of the funding against children making good progress.  We compare their progress with all children nationally.

Sports Premium Funding:

The Sports Premium is extra funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools. 

A total of £8615:00 was received for Sports Premium.

How we spend the Sports Premium:

At Limbrick Wood, we believe that all children should benefit regardless of ability.  Therefore we employ a specialist PE teacher to develop the PE and sports curriculum across the school.  We also provide free extra-curricular activities across the school, as well as inter school events with our West Partnership schools.
