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. PE also teaches children more transferable skills such as teamwork, communication and an awareness of health and well being. 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 and games that feed into after school clubs and level 2 competition against other schools in our locality. Our forward planning, and use of the Get Set 4 PE scheme, ensures progression across year group and that all children will have a range of sporting experiences whilst at Shooters Grove. We also advertise and inform children within school about pathways to further competition and local clubs.
In 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE and Sport Premium. However, in October 2017, the Department for Education published new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium grant. This scheme is to be continued until at least 2023-24 and the aims for doubling the School Sports Premium can be found here:

For the 2022-23 academic year we received a total of £19,100 of Sports Premium funding plus £3842 carried forward from the previous academic year. This has enabled us to employ a full time specialist sports coach continue our membership within the Forge Valley cluster of schools which promotes inclusion and provide more after school clus for more children. We have also invested in a new PE scheme, that will benefit the whole of the school and allow us to see clear progression across year groups. We have also upgraded our visual and sound equipment in both halls to ensure that children have access to a range of media during their PE sessions.
A full breakdown of how the PE and sport premium was spent in 2022-23 can be found in the file below.

This academic year we are due to receive a minimum of £16,000 as part of the School Sports Premium funding. Our priorities this year are to continue to build the opportunities for children to represent their house teams within school (intra-school sport) and represent school in level 2 competition in the local area (inter-school sport). We will also be adding to our visual and sound equipment in KS1 to improve PE lessons for all.
