PE & Sport Premium
Evidencing the Impact of Primary PE and Sport Premium 2020/2021
Since 2013, all UK schools have received funding from the Department for Education. The purpose of the funding is to improve the provision of PE and school sport. Our school already has a well-established positive attitude towards sport and exercise and pupils are given lots of opportunities in school to try new activities, with a strong emphasis on participation and enjoyment. We are fully committed to promoting active and healthy lifestyles.
Our offer continually includes the following:
- PE lessons which are aimed at developing skills that can easily be transferred into individual and team sports. Every child takes part in at least two hours of PE per week, including games, athletics, gymnastics, dance and outdoor and adventurous activities.
- The opportunity to have swimming lessons, with catch up lessons available, to ensure that they can swim 25 metres before they leave primary school. Sadly, it has not been possible to take our children swimming due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This will be prioritised in the Autumn Term of 2021.
- Opportunities to enter as many inter-school competitions as possible, involving children of ranging age and abilities. Participation in inter-school competitions has been restricted to virtual competitions. We have remained committed to giving our children the chance to participate and did so in a number of competitions. We were proud to achieve Gold in the Y3/4 North Yorkshire Archery Competition and Silver in the Y5/6 North Yorkshire Kurling Competition. Inclusion is a priority for our Federation and we aim to provide all children with the chance to represent their school as part of a competitive team.
- The offer of a range of after school sports clubs throughout the year for all ability and age groups, including gymnastics, tennis, athletics, cricket and football.
- A commitment to providing our children with a rich and broad range of sporting experiences from which we hope they will find ‘their sport’ and lead an active lifestyle. In June/July 2021, we were able to take all children in KS1 and KS2 to golf taster sessions at Bedale Golf Club.
- The opportunity for older children to attend a residential outdoor activity centre. In June 2020, Y5/6 children visited Marrick Priory where they participated in a range of adventurous activities.
Below is the link to our Evidencing the impact of the Primary PE and sport premium document which summarises our Intent, Implementation and Impact of spending during the 2020/21 academic year. As a Federation we are continuing to look at the option of developing our sports facilities to offer a MUGA or sports hall.
