Sports Funding 2016-2017

We have received ?9465 sports funding this year. This will be used to:

  • Provide specialist coaches across the whole school
  • Provide Year 3 with swimming lessons for the year as part of our rolling programme.
  • Bring dance and gymnastics specialists into school.
  • Fund coaching and transport to Kearsley Academy for a Gifted & Talented multi-sports club.
  • Cover travel and fees for cluster and NET sports events.


New government guidelines state that children should have access to 60 minutes of physical activity every day; 30 minutes at school and 30 minutes at home. At The Ferns Primary Academy, we offer a range of activities during and after school hours to help our pupils increase their daily level of activity.
