What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to the primary school to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport that is offered. This means it should be used to develop or add to the PE and Sport activities that school already offers. As well as make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

Purpose of the funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs

At Goosnargh Oliverson’s C of E Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children. Therefore we encourage and give all of our children the opportunity to take part in physical activity that is fun, rewarding, improves health and well-being, competitive and ultimately promotes healthy, active lifestyles. All pupils receive at least 2 hours of high-quality PE per week (through curriculum time, focussed playtimes and swimming – Year 4).

 

Following the New National Curriculum 2014, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to achieve highly in a broad range of physical activities
    are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives

The children are taught that we eat for energy and then need to use this energy by being active. Primary School years are crucial to tackling obesity and physical inactivity. Regular physical activity is proven to reduce the risk of many chronic conditions including heart disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity.

Through sport, physical activity and PE we aim to enthuse, inspire and motivate all children to learn new skills whilst having lots of fun.

The school follows the Lancashire Scheme of work for PE, covering a wide range of activities, games and competitive sport. Good – quality PE lessons are delivered consistently and children benefit from working with highly skilled and experienced staff.

Lessons include:

  • Gymnastics
  • Dance
  • Games (Net / wall games, striking / fielding games, invasion games)
  • Athletics
  • Outdoor and Adventurous activities
  • Swimming

Our PE curriculum is diverse, providing children with the opportunities to try new activities. Children are given opportunities to develop leadership roles, as well as coaching and officiating skills within the PE curriculum.
