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:

  • A regular running programme called Marathon Kids has been set up, challenging 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 has achieved SHSSN’s Gold-level Infant Kitemark, recognising the importance of healthy lifestyles for all pupils
  • Training for SMSAs and Student Play Leaders were 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 (2019-20) we have been allocated £12,100.
