What is the PE and Sports Premium Funding?
The government is providing substantial extra funding for the academic years 2013-2020 to support schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and achieve their potential. Schools decide how this funding is spent, as they are best placed to assess what provision should be made for their school. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Springhead.
At Springhead Primary School we recognise the importance of Physical Education to a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development as well as the role it can play in a child’s spiritual, moral and cultural development. Physical education develops pupils’ physical competence and confidence, and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities as per our curriculum map. We aim to encourage all pupils to develop the skills and confidence to reach their full potential as participants, performers and leaders so that they will develop a life-long interest in physical activity, sport and leading a healthy lifestyle. We will also provide opportunities for pupils to compete in sport and other activities to build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
We aim to ensure all pupils:
- Develop competence to excel 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.
