PE and Sport Premium
What is PE and Sport Premium?
The PE and Sports Premium is funded by the Department for Education, with the purpose of enabling schools to have funding to help improve the health of future generations. For 2021 to 2022, schools received £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. This can be spent on increasing physical education, active lifestyles and sports for all pupils.
The Primary PE and Sport Premium is ring-fenced and must only be spent on physical education and sport provision in schools. It therefore aims to achieve a self-sustaining improvement in all areas of PE, from the quality of physical education to introducing health focused physical activities and after school sports.
One success of our sports premium spending this year is the delivery of alternative sports by the external provider Go Active. Children and staff have been engaged and inspired by the uniqueness of this provision that has been delivered to all key stages.
A continuing success of using our PE and Sports Premium allocation that we are keen to develop further is the delivery of Forest schools. Currently Year 4 have been enjoying an ambitious and unique programme of study in Tregargus Valley, St Stephen. Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners. Forest School offers our children the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.
