Physical Education Premium Grant
The Government has given every primary school funding to develop Physical Education and competitive sport. The money will go directly to Primary Schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE and outdoor activity for all children. The funding can only be spent on sport and PE related provision in schools. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people and through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others
Physical Education Premium Grant – Projected Funding 2021 / 2022
PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of St William’s Catholic Primary School and at least two sessions per week, are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum.
We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of children and through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.
There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development. Furthermore, sport also provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.
Our focus for this year (2021/2022) we are using the PE and School Sport Premium (£17,350) to improve the quality of PE and Sport provision in the following ways:
- To organise an additional after school sports club (using the pupil voice survey for sports ideas)
- To fund a Martial Arts specialist coach to work with all year groups throughout the year to develop children's personal and social skills e.g. resilience, self confidence, self control and self belief to over come challenges.
- Provide adult led break and dinner time activities using a variety of sport equipment - leading to a higher level of pupil engagement resulting a reduction in accidents at these times.
- Providing a scheme of work for PE that offers a broad and balanced sports curriculum.
- Enabling children to attend more competitions, and to increase pupils’ participation in school games competitions.
- Ensuring all children have access to and subsidising extra-curricular activities throughout the year allowing them to lead even more active lives, including:
- Develop an effective and appropriate swimming programme for Years 5 and 4.
- Replenishing consumable resources to support our engaging curriculum and ensure all children can participate in PE lessons.
- Purchase new resources to enable delivery of broad PE curriculum.
- Whole school 'Active Week' to include opportunities for children to participate in a variety of outdoor and sporting activities that they would not normally be exposed to eg. archery, golf, tennis, dance, circus skills, Hot Shot Penalty Shoot etc.
- Support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports.
- Introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities.
Our outdoor equipment continues to motivate children to be more active at playtimes.
Due to COVID-19 we were unable to hold our after school clubs last year.
