What is Sports premium?
The government has pledged to commit funding for its Primary PE and Sport Premium to 2020, with £750 million to be invested over the course of the next parliament. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and achieve the performance standards they are capable of.
The government has allocated the funding to Primary School Head teachers as they believe that schools are best placed to decide how best to use the funding to meet their pupils needs.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Physical Education at our school – Aims and Objectives
Physical education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming and water safety, athletics and outdoor adventure activities. Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.
