Sports Premium

Harriers Banbury Academy Sports Premium funding

At Harriers Banbury Academy, we intend for all of our pupils to leave school with a love of being active and with the knowledge and skills to equip them to live a healthy and active lifestyle. We want to encourage pupils to participate in sport both for fun and competitively and become confident young sportspeople. We believe that PE, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, plays a unique and vital contribution to a pupil’s physical and mental health and well-being. 

The sports premium budget provides our school with the opportunity to achieve this. Harriers Banbury Academy understands that the PE and School Sport Premium funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport or to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we, as a school, already offer. We are also aware that we have to be accountable and report the money that we have spent against the key indicators.  Below you will find the latest Sports premium report and our intended use of the Sports Premium for the upcoming academic year. 

How will the funding be spent?
