PE Sports Premium
Through sport and physical education, pupils develop invaluable skills which enhance learning. We believe that sport plays an important part in promoting inclusion, healthy life choices and self-confidence.
Our Aims & Objectives
to equip every child with the skills and confidence to lead a healthy life
to provide access to a high quality and variety of sports
to seek opportunities for sporting competitions
to ensure every child has an equal opportunity to take part in physical activities and sports
to develop greater awareness of the detrimental impact on health and well-being of obesity and poor lifestyle choices
We have a rich and varied curriculum and enjoy excellent resources for teaching PE. To ensure all pupils get the best from their PE lessons, we employ qualified sports coaches to teach all KS2. Our House system enables healthy in-school competition and we hold an annual Sports Day for both KS1 and KS2 mixing children of ages and abilities to compete for their school house.
Swimming is an important skill and can encourage a healthy and active lifestyle. In accordance with the National Curriculum, schools must provide swimming instruction either in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2.
The programme of study for PE sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke
Pupils are Gorse Ride Schools have swimming lessons in the summer term of Year 5. The table below shows the competency levels at the end of Year 5.
Sports Premium Grant
The government provides additional PE & Sport funding to sustain and improve the provision for physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.
At Gorse Ride Schools, we provide a range of high quality physical education and wide range of sport; however, our intention is to always review and further enhance the current provision. Although the Sport Premium represents only a small proportion of our budget, we committed to ensuring it is spent to maximum effect.
Our statements below outline how we have invested our funding and the impact of our previous years expenditure, together with our aims and forecast spend for the year ahead.
