PE And Sports Premium

Sport and increased physical activity have long been recognised as important areas to promote through education and beyond. Physical activity and playing sports is beneficial for the health of individuals but also has the capacity to bring communities together. The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics created increased excitement about sport and inspired many to take up and participate in activities they had never tried before. The government recognises the importance of maintaining that interest and ensuring that the legacy of the Games continues, and are therefore investing £450 million through the PE and Sport Premium. Since 2013 primary schools have been entitled to this funding in order to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

Physical development, which includes PE, swimming, MOVE and Sensory Processing work is vital to the children at Willow Dene. Through participation in PE, our children develop their motor skills and learn how to control their bodies in different and more refined ways, through personalised and engaging activities. They also acquire key values such as respect, co-operation and kindness. Our facilities are highly specialised and have been chosen to meet the wide variety of needs our children have. The PE and Sports Premium has meant that we are able to invest in specific areas we would like to develop as a school that will have long term effects on the health, well-being, learning and development of our children.

In order to assess the impact of the PE and Sports Premium we are able to reference pupil attainment using our Learning Journey assessment system, as well as through our Annual Reviews, MOVE assessments and discussions with staff and parents. We are then able to see if there are specific areas that children need to develop and if there are trends throughout the school.

Year 2017-18

We will receive £8,700 in sports premium funding.

How we plan to invest the money

Children, students and staff to develop their skills in a wider range of sports and activities including climbing a personal fitness, through having training from outside coaches. The confidence of staff to teach these skills will improve.

 

Staff skilled to use a wider variety of equipment and trained in safety considerations.

- Climbing/ swimming and gym - To continue to invest in a wide range of accessible equipment to give all children and students access to a broader range of physical activities.

 

  • Approx. - £2500.00

 

Children and students will continue to have a rich source of accessible, sustainable and durable equipment with which to explore a wide range of movements, activities and games.

 

Staff will have the resources they need in order to deliver engaging, inspiring and individually appropriate lessons.

 

Other areas to consider:

 

  • Provisions for Key Stage 4 – Mark and Josh might be the best people to ask about what is needed?
  • Improved PE provision for children with CVI and visual impairments for ASD and complex needs, to ensure all children have access to specialist and appropriate PE resources and opportunities. Again Josh would be a good person to speak to about what is needed. Is there anyone that provides training in this area?
