At the Flying Bull Academy we are committed to raising the participation levels for our children in sporting and extra-curricular activities. Last year 39% (43% Pupil Premium) of children in Key Stage 1 were involved with extra curricular activities and 71% (71% Pupil Premium) of children in Key Stage 2. Our other priorities are encouraging greater activity levels through a quality PE curriculum (which is taught by well-trained teachers) and through an engaging play environment.
Our use of the sports premium money for the Academic Year 2018/19 reflects this commitment (see below), while looking to offer a range of sporting activities to engage as many children across the academy as possible, as well as develop the skill sets of staff to deliver the best PE provision possible.
