The government has pledged £150 million per annum to support PE and school sport in primary schools. This funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer. The premium should be used to develop or add to the PE and sport activities in school and to build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
There are five key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement in the following:
Sport Premium Funding
In the academic year 2019-20 we received £19170 + £3832. Of this money we plan to use it all this year with a total spend of £36505.
Position Statement for PE in school
At Boughton Leigh Infant School, we aim to provide our children with a positive experience of physical activity, a strong understanding of health and well-being and opportunities to take part in competitive sport. This is achieved through a wide range of sports and physical activity as part of our carefully planned PE curriculum and an extensive extra-curricular club program.
We believe that a combination of high quality physical education, active participation in clubs and carefully managed and modelled competitive sport can benefit every child. It improves children’s health and fitness, builds character and confidence, embeds values such as fairness, teamwork and respect and ultimately develops essential life skills.
The popularity and effectiveness of PE at Boughton Leigh Infant School continues to grow. Every child in school is involved in curriculum PE lessons each week covering a range of physical activities, games and skills.
This is supplemented by our extensive after school club programme.
Within the curriculum P.E. there is a balance of different areas of physical development including a variety of games, multi skills, gymnastics and dance. In Key Stage 1, teaching focuses on developing fundamental movement skills, becoming increasingly agile, improving balance and co-ordination and working with others. Children also start to develop key physical movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching.
Our PE provision continues to go from strength to strength with extra provisions based on a combination of our expertise, pupil voice and staff consultation. A large number children have been involved in sports-based extra-curricular clubs and we continue to offer a wide range of clubs and experiences.
