PE & Sport Premium

We are committed to delivering high-quality Physical Education and sporting activities. We provide 2 hours of PE each week in gymnastics, dance and games. The planned PE curriculum is further complemented by active playtimes and after-school sports clubs which include Tennis, Football and Multi-Sports.

Our vision is that all pupils are physically literate when they leave primary school, and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Our objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and Sport in our school against 5 key indicators:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kickstarting healthy, active lifestyles

  • the profile of PE and Sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement

  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport

  • a broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

  • increased participation in competitive sport

We reflect on a number of key interventions made possible by the PE & Sport Premium:

  • An intervention group has been set up, targeting the least active 10% of chidren in Reception and Year 2, and those that would benefit from additional support. This group received 6 weeks of targeted PE sessions designed to build children’s confidence and fundamental movement skills

  • Our ‘Marathon Kids’ running programme has been embedded into our curriculum and all Year 2 children have been signed up to the scheme. It challenges all pupils to run the distance of a marathon over the course of the year. Children take 10-15 minute runs 2-3 times a week, boosting the children’s overall health and fitness levels

  • Grange Park achieved SHSSN’s Gold-level Infant Kitemark, recognising the importance of healthy lifestyles for all pupils

  • Training for SMSAs and Student Play Leaders was delivered.

  • Children took part in ‘taster sessions’ enabling them to take part in a wide variety of sports, delivered by local sports clubs. Yoga was a notable addition to our curricular and extra-curricular sports programme.

From September 2013 the Government has provided additional funding directly to primary schools to be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport. This year (2020 - 21) we have been allocated £12,100.
