Overview of spending opportunities


●       This is an exciting time for the academy as we move in a different direction with many new and developing sporting opportunities to come as a result of the creation of the Outwood Together Alliance now led by ACES.


●       The aim of the sports funding at Rook’s Nest is to build upon the many strengths of the staff by offering additional coaching and team teaching with experts.


●       Sport is a very important aspect of life at Rook’s Nest Academy and we try our best to excel. Throughout the course of the year many subsidised places will be offered at different clubs.


●       We are also diversifying opportunities on offer for our students, to encourage trialling of new sports with the hope of developing a lifelong passion.


●       We will be providing staff with CPD where a need arises (orienteering and Lacrosse).


●       We will purchase additional resources to enable high quality PE sessions to be delivered across all sports areas.


●       Children will have access to mental health education in order to become ‘happy and well-rounded individuals’, through extra Yoga (for targeted children) and PSCE this year


●       Children and staff will have access to outdoor active learning mentoring with an external company in order to provide a more hands on approach to learning.

We are already noting that since the introduction of SPG, a positive impact has been made with the number of children attending after school clubs. Last year Rook’s Nest Academy did much better than in previous years in the Outwood cluster competitions – particularly in Hockey and Cross-country. Our Year Two’s also won the West Yorkshire daily mile competition, whilst our Year Four’s came third. These improvements are all down, in part, to the greater amount of children attending clubs and the variety of clubs on offer.
