Flying Bull

Sports Premium

At the Flying Bull Academy we are committed to raising the participation levels for our children in sporting activities. Last year 61% of children in Key Stage 1 were involved with extra curricular activities and 58% of children in Key Stage 2.

Our use of the sports premium money for the Academic Year 2017/18 reflects this commitment, 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.
