Netherhall Learning Campus Junior School

Sports Premium

The Government has given every Primary School funding to develop Physical Education and competitive sport.


At Netherhall Learning Campus Infant and Junior Schools we are using this funding to facilitate:

  • Employing specialist coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE
  • Releasing the school PE Coordinators for professional development in PE and sport to then feedback to staff.
  • Providing quality-assured professional training for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE and sport.

In addition, we have joined the Newsome School Sports Partnership for the following purposes:

  • To increase the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate
  • Increase pupils’ participation in national school games competitions,
  • Provide extra provision for children who are talented by selecting them for a Gifted and Talented academy where they will meet other talented pupils from the Huddersfield area.
  • To support the inclusion of those with special needs in sport.
  • Make links to other community sports providers.
  • Encourage our children to improve their leadership skills through sport
  • Develop additional clubs and activities for children, outside the curriculum

This funding also supports providing an exciting range of after-school sport clubs run by staff and specialist coaches at both schools including:

  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Fencing
  • Games
  • Multiskills
  • Rugby
  • Streetdance
  • Athletics
  • Martial Arts
  • Multi Sports

Other areas supported by the Sports Premium funding are:

  • Using the expertise of the PE teachers from the Netherhall Learning Campus High School to help primary staff improve their PE and sports provision.
  • Purchasing specialist equipment and teaching resources.

At Netherhall Learning Campus we recognise the importance of fostering a love of sport and an active lifestyle from an early age. Our goal, with the support of this funding, is to provide for all our pupils a high quality PE provision within and outside curriculum time.
