PE and Sports Premium
“We believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil's physical development and well-being. Through the selection of suitably differentiated tasks, it is intended that pupils, irrespective of their starting ability, will enjoy success and be motivated to further develop their individual potential.”
At The Three Schools, we believe PE & Sport play an important role in making young people’s lives better. We have welcomed the Government’s announcement to extend the Sport Premium to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils and we are committed to using this resource for developing high-quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all of our young people.
We are using the Sport Premium to provide Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for our PE leader, and our teaching and support staff so that we have the expertise within our schools to deliver outstanding PE lessons in all phases. Through the Sports Partnership, we are sharing practice and providing competitions for our pupils. This work will continue into the future, even if funding from the Sport Premium is no longer available.
What does the Sport Premium mean for The Three 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’ (DfE June 2013).
At The Three Schools we are using the following key indicators:
- Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
- Raising the profile of PE and Sport across the school
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport
- Ensuring that children experience a range of sports and activities
- Increase opportunities for participation in competitive sport
