Sports Funding Action Plan

How will Shakespeare Infant School be using the additional funding (£17,943) to further improve provision in PE in 2020-21?

We will continue to employ a specialist team of tennis coaches and multisport coaches to work alongside our Year 2 teachers in a mentoring role for future sustainability.

We aim offer free after school sports sessions to disadvantaged pupils and to those pupils with SEN to develop their gross motor/social skills.


We will continue to provide multi skills club after school, free of charge for pupils who need to improve their levels of fitness, or who would benefit from increased opportunities to develop their gross motor/social skills. All clubs will be available at some point of the year to every Year 2 child. We will offer these clubs when and if government guidance permits.
