Schools have a central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of primary school where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established.
Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. PE and sport premium grant funding should be used by schools towards these aims.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, sport and physical activity they provide.
This means that we must use the PE and sport premium to:
build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
develop or add to the PE, sport and physical activity that our school provides.
The school uses its sports funding to employ a trained PE coach from Premier Sports. Within this role the PE specialist focuses on the following areas to enable whole school impact:
Delivers PE lessons using a broad and balanced curriculum within both Key Stages 1 and 2.
Delivers an after school sports club to the key stage specified by the school.
Delivers inter and intra-school sports competitions for pupils in both key stages.
Plans and delivers the school’s annual sports day with the help of other school staff
Plans and delivers CPD opportunities to staff within a variety of areas of the PE curriculum.
Ensures resources of all types are up to date and adequate for the teaching of PE.
This ensures high quality PE and sport delivery across the key stages. The CPD offered results in a high quality sport offer and ensures continuity and progress across all age phases.
