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.
