PE & Sports Premium
What the PE and Sports Funding Grant is:
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
Kilmorie Primary school is committed to ensuring that the primary PE and Sports Premium funding is allocated to high quality, sustainable initiatives in line with the 5 key indicators given in the revised guidance from the DfE.
PE and Sports Premium is used to secure improvements in the following 5 areas:
- Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:
- Providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
- Encourage active play during break times and lunchtimes
- Establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sports clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
- Adopting an active mile initiative
- Raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet the requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2 – every child should leave primary school being able to swim
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement, for example by:
- Actively encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support the delivery of sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sports leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes)
- Embedding physical activity into the school day through encouraging active travel to and from school, active break times and holding active lessons and teaching
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport, for example by:
- Providing staff with professional development, mentoring, appropriate training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across the school
- Hiring qualified sports coaches and PE specialists to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities offered to pupils – teachers should learn from coaches the necessary skills to be able to teach these new sports and physical activities effectively
- Broader experience of a range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils, for example by:
- Introducing a new range of sports and physical activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
- Partnering with other schools to run sports and physical activities and clubs
- Providing more and broadening variety extra-curricular physical activities after school in the 3 to 6pm window, delivered by the school or other local sports organisations
- Increased participation in competitive sport, for example by:
- Increasing and actively encouraging pupils’ participation on the School Games
- Organising more sport competitions or tournaments within the school
- Coordinating and entering more sport competitions or tournaments across the local area, including those run by sporting organisations
