Berrow Primary Church Academy PE and Sport Premium Funding
The purpose of sports funding is to ‘fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and Sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles’.
Key indicators of the effective use of sports funding are:
Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school;
Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement;
Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport;
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.
At Berrow, we adopt a child- centred holistic approach to physical education and sport as we believe our children should understand the importance of physical and mental health, fitness and well-being in order to lead healthy and active lives. We believe children should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other and against themselves, be able to apply a broad range of the fundamental skills in familiar and unfamiliar sports and have the confidence and self-belief to take physical risks and adopt challenges within a safe and secure learning environment.
We aim to develop physically literate individuals who embark upon a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport through using our sports premium funding. effectively to address all of these key indicators.
Our PE and Sport leader is Miss Michelle Montgomery, and she would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
