Sports Premium 2017 to 2018
Sports Premium is an amount of money which the government has allocated to schools to promote and develop Physical Education and School Sport provision. Schools receive a lump sum and a premium amount per pupil.
The premium money has to be spent exclusively on extending the opportunities for all pupils to experience high quality PE lessons, activities and competitive school sport.
In 2017/2018 we received £19,630.00 Sports Premium Grant
Heron Action Plan
At Heron we plan to have achieved the following priorities as set out in our SDP (point 1.7 & 1.9) and PE action plan:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – stimulating healthy active lifestyles and choices
- The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- The increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- A broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- An increased participation in competitive sport
As a commitment to meeting these priorities Heron has already affiliated to a number of sporting bodies.

It also qualifies Heron to nominate talented pupils for District trials at U10 and U11 level for both girls and boys.
