Here at Shooters Grove Primary School PE is valued as an important part of every child's education. We endeavour to teach children the basic fundamentals of movement during KS1 before focusing on sporting skills and competition as they move through KS2. Every child has the opportunity to participate in two gymnastic and dance units each year as well as one outdoor and adventurous activity. These are complimented by a range of sports that feed into after school clubs and level 2 competition against other schools in our locality. Our forward planning ensures that all children will have a range of sporting experiences whilst at Shooters Grove which all have pathways to competition and local clubs.
In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE and Sport Premium.
This funding is allocated to primary school headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
However, on 24th October 2017, the Department for Education published new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium grant. The aims for doubling the School Sports Premium can be found here:
For the 2017-18
This academic year we are due to receive a minimum of 16,000 pounds as part of the School Sports Premium funding. Our priorities this year are to renew the gymnastics equipment in the KS2 hall, ensure that PE in KS1 has a clear focus and coverage with the equipment that they need to carry this out and to add further to our outdoor learning equipment but this time in KS1.
