Primary PE and Sports Premium
From September 2013 all state primary schools (maintained; academy and free) have received extra sports funding through The Primary PE ad Sports Premium as facilitated by Department of Education. We intend to use the money to help improve the confidence and ability in the delivery of high quality Physical Education amongst staff in the school as well as promoting active healthy lifestyle choices to pupils.
As a school, we feel that this will enable us to have the greatest impact on the pupils and is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development.
Funding will therefore be targeted towards the following areas:
Continued Professional Development for staff via training courses.
Adding and improving existing resources for teaching PE and Sport
Supporting extra-curricular club provision.
Increasing active participation in physical activity and school sport.
Providing opportunities for children to compete within intra and inter sporting competition
Continually raising the profile of active healthy lifestyles given the many benefits associated with behaviour, attainment and achievement.
The impact of the Sports Premium funding will be measured by:
An increase in delivery of high quality PE lessons as monitored by both Senior Leaders and PE Subject Leader.
Understanding and planning the new Primary PE curriculum 2014.
Increased participation within curricular and extra-curricular provision.
Increased links to local clubs, organisations and other schools
Greater links made with other quality-assured, expert external agencies who support positive, active, healthy lifestyles.
