The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum 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 school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
The Sports Premium Allocation for our school in the academic year 2021-22 is approximately £18,000.
Our aim in Physical Education is to help our children to understand the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle by offering them a curriculum that will motivate, enthuse and inspire them to engage in sporting activities both during their time at Primary School and beyond. We encourage the children to work hard to achieve personal success and to develop their skills and confidence. As well as offering traditional curriculum sports such as dance, gymnastics, football and cricket, we also introduce children to an alternative sport each year in order to develop their experiences.
At Forsbrook CE Primary School we believe that -
Providing pupils with lifelong healthy habits will enable them to be physically active for the rest of their lives.
Participation in quality PE and sport can improve physical and mental well-being which will transfer into measureable school achievement outcomes.
By taking part in PE and sport it can improve a huge range of social skills, promote inclusion and lead to better cohesion.
PE and sport can also help to shape behaviour and develop leadership skills.
