PE and Sport Premium
The government is providing all primary schools with additional funding in order to develop the PE and sports activities that are offered to pupils.
As a school, we are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of our PE and sports provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels of which they are capable.
In the Early Years and Key Stage 1, our main focus is upon developing individual children's co-ordination and confidence, as well as developing attitudes of fair play. At Key Stage 2 there is an increased focus upon developing individual knowledge and skills, together with an appreciation for teamwork. We aim for children to spend about 2 hours on physical activities each week.
We pay to be members of the Eden Valley Sports Partnership. The partnership provides us with year-round access to professional coaches, invitations to a variety of competitive events and regular training opportunities for our teachers.
