For more photographs of sporting activities, have a look in the individual class folders in the PE section.
The Government has spent over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the last 4 academic years and the intention is that this funding will not only continue until 2020 but also increase. They are allocating this extra funding directly to schools.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example:
Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on PE and sport provision and on how schools spend their additional funding.
Schools are also held accountable by requiring them to publish, on their websites, details of how they spend (or will spend) their PE and sport grant. They must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
Primary PE and Sport Premium
At Boyne Hill, we believe our children should be aware of what is needed to keep them fit and healthy. We have worked with the local School Sports Partnership for many years and have made PE an integral part of our school curriculum. With the new funding changes for PE now in place, Boyne Hill have made important decisions on how best to spend this money to further enhance our children’s experiences and opportunities including learning about the importance of staying healthy and the social skills learnt by taking part in sport.
The following statements set out how we have spent the money and how we intend to spend it in the following academic year.
The children will be able to receive effective tuition in a variety of physical education activities which will increase their fitness and stamina and develop skills on which to build in the future.
Learning to swim is an essential and potentially life-saving skill to learn from an early age so we value the opportunity to be able to provide this through the PE and Sports Premium funding, at no cost to our parents/carers.
Learning the basic skills whilst developing core strength is at the heart of all sports. Every child is included and they will all be able to build on the skills learned as they move through this and future schools.
