Sports Premium Strategy
The Government has pledged funding into schools to support PE and school sport in primary schools. The PE and sport premium funding is to enable schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools, so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils.
Schools should use their funding to demonstrate improvements in 5 key indicators.
Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
Broader experience of a range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils
Increased participation in competitive sport.
Our strategy is built upon our core principles reflected in our school Christian Vision & curriculum mission statement.
Christian Vision Curriculum Mission Statement
Physical activity is a core aspect of our Spirituality curriculum. Being active develops children’s physical health and also supports mental wellbeing. Sport and Physical Education gives children the opportunity to demonstrate understanding of sporting values which are closely linked to our school values.
Our curriculum is designed to teach children how to find joy, be curious and have the confidence to show their creativity. Our physical activity strategy is designed to provide a wide range of activities to enable children to develop different physical skills, express themselves creatively, work within a team and feel successful in their growing abilities and achievements.
