PE and School Sport

PE and School Sport

 

In April 2013, following on from the success of the Olympics in London 2012, the government announced funding for physical education (PE) and school sport for all primary schools. The aim of the funding is to help improve the quality of PE lessons as well as providing increased opportunities for children to actively engage in a range of sporting activities both for enjoyment and at a competitive level too. The school will receive approximately £9,700 per year, over three school years.

 

How the money is spent is up to the school to decide how to improve the quality and breadth of the PE and sport provision. Consultations are made with the PE lead, PE link governor, senior leadership team and the school sports committee. This might include: increasing participation in competitive sports, encouraging all children to lead healthy, active lifestyles and to improve the quality first teaching of PE within the curriculum.

 

Market Drayton Junior schools aims for PE and school sport include:

 

  • Promote the health and welling being of its pupils and staff through physical activity
  • To maximise opportunities for children, young people and all associated with the school to be physically active by promoting all avenues for activity.
  • To increase participation levels in physical activity and encourage all children to lead healthy and active lifestyles.
  • Deliver high quality provision of PE and school sport which includes quality first teaching from skilled and confident teachers who have a secure subject knowledge.
  • A PE and school sports curriculum that is inclusive.
  • To increase participation levels in competitive sport.
  • A range of extra-curricular activities and competitions to increase participation levels.
  • Links to PSHE to promote the importance of staying healthy and keeping fit.
  • Working in partnership with the local secondary school and cluster primary schools to create opportunities for competitions.
  • Inter-house competitions to promote a variety of sports.
  • Ensuring the PE lead keeps up date with new initiatives and feeds these back to the whole school.
