PE and Sports Premium
In 2013, the Government demonstrated their commitment to improving sport and Physical Education in schools by revealing allocation of funding. The drive behind this funding has always been to ensure schools can make sustainable improvements and to provide all children with opportunities to develop a lifelong commitment to being healthy and active. This funding is ring fenced and can only be spent on the provision of Sport and Physical Education in the school.
There are 5 Key Indicators (KI) that school should expect to see improvement across:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- The profile of Physical Education and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff teaching Physical Education and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
Vision for PE:
At Bannockburn Primary School, we believe each child has the right to an outstanding Physical Education programme, providing the foundations for lifelong participation in physical activity and/or sport. We aim to develop and improve pupils’ attitudes towards both participation and competition through regularly timetabled PE lessons and extra-curricular activities.
We believe that the context of the school and known risk factors linked to this means we must ensure our children are prepared for the next step in their learning, as well as future lives. We believe it is our role to embrace not just the academic but to provide our children with strategies to support mental strength and wellbeing. Exercise which supports character growth, resilience, confidence and risk taking within safe environments is to be encouraged. In line with this, we also promote healthy lifestyles through our PD Curriculum and teach about balanced diets and making appropriate lifestyle choices within our Science Curriculum.
Aims for PE at Bannockburn:
- To ensure children lead healthy lifestyles by embracing exercise, healthy minds and balanced diets.
- To encourage a healthy lifestyle that promotes lifelong participation in physical activity outside of the school environment by:
- Stimulating a positive attitude and interest in a wide range of physical activities
- Making children aware of the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle
- To contribute to the physical development of all children
- To develop all children’s self esteem and confidence by:
- Seeing the worth in improvement, not just success
- Providing opportunities to aid social skills (team games, playing fairly, meeting children from other schools, sportsmanship etc)
- To provide the opportunity for children to compete
- To enable sports based leadership opportunities for KS2 children
At Bannockburn, we have implemented sustainable changes by building upon our capabilities to facilitate and deliver high quality physical education to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. In doing so, we have extended the range of resources available during lessons, play times and within extra-curricular clubs. We have also invested in providing continuing professional development for teaching and support staff in order to develop their skills in a variety of sports. Through the Sports Premium Funding, we have developed our connection with the Greenwich School Sports Partnership, which will continue to provide annual opportunities for our students to participate in a variety of competitions and games, enhancing their sportsmanship and cultivating a lifelong love of physical education.
