PE & Sports Premium

Vision Statement for P.E

Our aim is for all children at Woore Primary and Nursery School to experience high quality Physical Education (P.E), school sport and physical activity that will lead to lifelong participation in sport as part of a healthy lifestyle.

We will aim to:

  • improve children's health and well being
  • provide high quality sporting opportunities for all
  • assist each individual to be the best that they can be
  • encourage community involvement and responsibility
  • promote a lifelong love of sport
  • celebrate sporting achievements
  • continue the lasting legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic games.

We recognise that sport has an important role to play in raising standards and narrowing the achievement gap. Research has shown that sport as part of a broad and balanced curriculum can improve attendance, behaviour and attainment. Sport can also build self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills.

PE & Sports Premium

In April 2013 the government announced funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. The aim of the sports premium is to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.  The school has received approximately £8,000 per year following this and was then doubled in 2018-19 to the current academic year. How the money is spent is up to the school to decide in order to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles. Sports premium spend is reported to parents via this website and is reported to governors through the Head Teachers report.

At Woore Primary and Nursey School the funding has been used in the following ways:

  • Buying in Local Authority expertise in creating a Forest School site and training an existing staff member to make the project sustainable.
  • Using external coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons in order to increase their subject knowledge and improve the quality of PE that the children access.
  • Joining a network of schools to provide a support network and the experience of a secondary link PE teacher who will support schools through regular network meetings and improving opportunities for competitive school sports.
  • Buying into the Youth Sports Trust Quality Mark to audit existing provision and use this as a means of developing further the quality of PE and school sports provision.
  • Supporting the competitions and school sport involved in achieving the annual Sainsbury's School Games Award
  • Increased opportunities for competitive competitions for all children, for example, participation in an inter- schools cross country competition and entry into a local High-5 Netball league.
  • Ensuring a wide range of after school clubs are available to children and support for funding 'vulnerable' groups of children so that they can access these.
  • Providing continuing professional development for school staff.
  • Providing opportunities for children to access a change for life club.
  • Updating P.E resources and P.E programmes
  • Providing school transport to local competitions
  • Entering local competitions and football leagues
  • Releasing P.E coordinator to fulfil duties
