The Government is committed to improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools and allocates extra funding directly to schools.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example:
Schools are held accountable for the additional funding and are required to publish, on their websites, details of how they spent (or will spend) their PE and Sport Premium funding. 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. At Boyne Hill we 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 report below sets out how we spent the money in the previous academic year and how we will make sure the improvements are sustainable. The Intentions statement below sets out how we intend to spend the money in the current academic year.
This will enable one class to prepare for the (possibly virtual) Dance Festival and one class to prepare for the (possible virtual) Wake-up Shake-up Festival during the summer term. This also provides both Year 1 classes with a block of 5 weeks of specialist dance tuition provided by the Partnership. These are excellent opportunities for the children to experience performing to an audience.
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. Teachers will improve their own skills through this coaching.
The children will have the chance to enjoy a free club which boosts their fundamental skills and may encourage them to take up other sports.
Taking part in competition is very important for the children and helps build resilience.
Children will be inspired to try different sports and understand the need to keep trying to reach a goal.
Children will be able to understand the importance of keeping fit and healthy.
