The PE and Sports Premium

PE and Sport Premium

     

 

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016-2017 to improve provision of Physical Education and sport in primary schools.

This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school Headteachers who will have the freedom to choose how they spend the money. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' so that schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.

Through our membership in the Devizes Schools Sports Network (DSSN), there has been an increase in teacher’s pedagogical knowledge through observing a specialist PE teacher. Schemes of work that have been developed will ensure sustainability.  The children have accessed a range of inter-school events including Dance, Gym and muli-skills Festivals (for Foundation, KS1 and KS2) which have been very positively received.  A greater number of inter-school tournaments have been entered enabling more children to participate.  For more information please follow this link http://www.devizessport.co.uk/    See our class pages for photos and further information.

 

The children are more active at break times as well as lunchtimes. The  children have trained as Young Sports Leaders at both sites and regularly plan and deliver lunch time sessions to all of the children.  These are greatly enjoyed by children and staff.

 

It is the responsibility of the Headteacher,  and P.E. leader, to report to the Governors on the progress being made towards improving PE provision in our school.

Sporting heroes at Five Lanes School!

On Monday 2nd of October 2017 Cassie Patten, who is an Olympic swimming medallist, came to our school to inspire our children by sharing her own journey to success.  She explained how she overcame many difficulties both at school, and as a swimmer to succeed at the highest level. 

After that, all children completed circuits (see photos) to help to raise money to support the British Olympic athletes.  We have supported the stars of the future!
