At Queens Road Academy we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
Allocations have been calculated using data from the January school census. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil. Smaller schools receive £1000 per pupil. The last grant Queens Road Academy received was to the value of £17950 (2019-2020).
Queens Road Academy is fortunate to be located in the heart of Barnsley and therefore has good links with community resources such as Barnsley Football Club and Metrodome Swimming Centre.
