4 A Side Football

Burstwick took on Paull School at 4 a side football on Wednesday 21st October. Each school fielded 3 teams, with each team playing the 3 sides from the opposing school in matches lasting 4 minutes. The short duration of each match meant that games were exciting and full of energy.

There were some great individual performances by players from both schools in addition to excellent teamwork in every game.
Burstwick’s players were Harvey S, Ella H, Jessica Y, Noah J, Grace W, James H, Harvey B, Harry G, Thomas W, Leoni M, Charlotte M, Jacob B, Alex M.

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life – to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement. Its good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy meal.

Premium Spends
Spending Money

The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
