What is the PE & Sport Premium?
The Government is allocating funding to schools to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This money can only be spent on sport, PE
and wellbeing provision in schools.
The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective:
To make additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all primary-aged pupils to encourage the
development of healthy, active lifestyles.
This year, we are using our Sport Premium to enhance the opportunities given to the children for daily physical activity outside of the PE lessons.
We aim for:
● high level of pupil engagement
● increased team spirit and sportsmanship
● increased active playtimes and lunchtimes
● develop awareness of the benefits of active lifestyles, as well as pupil’s knowledge of the links between diet and physical activity and wellbeing
● continuing to develop active after school clubs available to all pupils
● swimming lessons for pupils from Year 3 to Year 6
We will fulfil our objectives in the following ways:
● offering a range of activities at playtime and lunchtime
● purchasing and maintaining sport equipment
● maintaining high quality upper body strength equipment, meeting safety standards
● ensure all PE and sports equipment is sufficient to deliver high quality sessions
● entering and running sports competitions
