PE and Sport Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government has provided funding for school PE and Sport. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Schools have to spend their Sports Premium funding on improving the provision of PE and sport, but have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.
Objective of Sports Premium at Medlar with Wesham CE Primary School
At Wesham CE we are strongly committed to increasing the pupils physical literacy and understanding of how health and exercise is vital for mental and physical well being. This is evident in the wide range of activities that we offer, including being involved in competitive sports. We recognise the importance of PE to the health and well-being of our children and the impact the PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities can have on the attitudes, confidence and academic achievement of all children.
When making decisions about Sport Premium spending it is important to consider the context of the school and subsequent challenges faced by individual pupils and by the school environment as a whole. The challenges are varied and there is no ‘one size fits all’. Opportunities are offered to pupils who would benefit from additional exercise and the subsequent health and fitness benefits associated with this.
Through targeted interventions together with general offers to all children we are working to raise the profile of sport, exercise and health for all children in school.
Registers are kept for clubs to see engagement.
