At Diamond Academy we aim to prepare pupils for their future not only academically but to also understand the importance of being fit and healthy through the enjoyment of physical activity. We have used some of the Primary PE Sport funding to employ a specialist PE Teacher so that we can provide an enhanced level of sporting activities for children. We have also continued to support pupil participation in the Thetford Games.
We are very proud that our pupils are often praised at sporting fixtures for their excellent behaviour and outstanding sportsmanship. Sometimes these accolades mean more to us than the actual winning!
What is the P.E. and Sport Premium funding?
'PE and Sport Premium Funding' is a DfE initiative designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sports activities they offer pupils.
We receive funding based on the number of pupils in our academy and must spend the money we receive to improve our P.E. and sporting offer to our pupils - but we are free to choose the best way of spending the money.
Through this additional funding Diamond Academy aims to :
- Improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision
- Increase pupils' participation in PE and sport so all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of
- Provide additional sporting activities at breaks, lunchtimes and after school
