PE & Sports Premium
PE & Sports Premium
The Government are currently providing funding of £150 million per year for schools in England. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is aimed at improving sport participation and the general health and well-being of children in school.
Schools must use this money to enhance P.E. in their setting and in doing so should focus on four key areas.
- Increase the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole school improvement, including healthy lifestyles of our students.
- Increase the confidence of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
- Broaden the range of sports and activities offered to children.
- Increased participation in competitive sport.
Sports Premium 2022-2023
Moving forward in the academic year 2022-2023, we will develop a thorough and robust timetable for school sports, utilising our school sports partnership with Wyre and Fylde. We will make sure that extracurricular activities before, during and after school are accessible for all year groups and the funding is shared across both Key Stages to ensure pupils continue to develop their physical competencies and are given as many opportunities as possible to be physically active.
Staff will be at the forefront of delivery both in PE lessons and in extracurricular activities, plugging the gaps and providing wider opportunities alongside our external providers. They will do this by receiving specific training as part of our investment in the school sport partnership whilst utilising regular review meetings with the schools PE lead.
Whole school physical activity will be a major focus with incentivised challenges such as the Lancashire Active Mile interactive tool used by all classes to promote healthy competition and positive activity habits for all pupils.
We will continue our swimming offer so that all pupils have the opportunity to achieve the required swimming distance at the end of KS2.
During 2022/23 physical development will remain a key priority and the curriculum will be planned carefully to ensure that skills can be progressively developed and that Sports Premium Funding can be utilised to have the biggest impact on children's physical confidence and active lifestyles.
