PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of our school.
All children and young people should live healthy active lives. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people should take part in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day.
The Childhood Obesity Plan says that at least 30 minutes of daily activity should take place in schools.
Schools have a key role to play in achieving this aim. This is particularly true of primary schools where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity are embedded. All children should have equal access to high-quality PE provision and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Academic achievement can improve in school because of the benefits children can gain.
We believe that exercise 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.
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 within which young people can learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.
Since 2013, the Government has provided 'Sport Premium' funding, specifically aimed at improving the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in all schools.
Schools should use the PE and sport premium funding to help achieve these aims. It must not be used for core-type school activities. They should use it to make additional and sustainable improvements to the PE, sport and physical activity they provide, such as:
Schools should prioritise PE and sport premium spending to improve in the following 5 key areas:
