Grange C.E. Primary P.E. and Sports Premium

At Grange CE Primary we believe that physical education, physical activity and outdoor education, supports and complements our school ethos. We firmly believe that children will only engage in physical activity, personal sporting success and competitive sport if they are allowed to become participants in sport first. For children to truly enjoy physical education in school sport they should adopt the approach of both performer and coach. By fostering these skills through the enjoyment of participation, children are able to partake in high quality, supportive physical education as they progress through the school. Developing skills that are essential if progress and attainment in competitive sport is to be achieved. Following on from the success of the 2012 London Olympics the government is providing additional funding of £150 million to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only by spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. At Grange CE Primary the funding is being used to deliver the following projects and initiatives.

  • The identification and hiring of specialist PE teachers and qualified sports coaches to work with the children and staff to develop high quality PE lessons and staff skills
  • Support and development from CPPSSA to provide current festivals and assist in the development of further festivals
  • Employment of PE specialists to assist with planning and delivery of cluster initiatives
