Our school receives P.E. and Sports Premium funding to make additional and sustainableimprovements to the quality of P.E. and sport we offer.
We use the premium to:
- provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach P.E. and sport more effectively
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
- introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
- enter or run more sport competitions
- partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
- encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
- contribute towards swimming provision to ensure our pupils meet the swimming requirements of the national curriculum
- embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
- the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- the profile of P.E. and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching P.E and sport
- broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- increased participation in competitive sport
