PE and Sport Premium Funding
The government is spending £320 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary school head teachers and must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.
PE and school sports are an important part of Lambs Lane school life. We believe that PE and school sport contribute to the spiritual, moral, social and communicative development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others. For all children ‘Reach out and Shine’ applies to all aspects of learning at Lambs Lane, with PE being no exception. We acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum has a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement. The school strives to offer a sport or activity that each pupil can take part and participate in and enjoy.
Sports Funding for 2020 – 2021
Our overall aim is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to continue to provide high quality lessons and improved learning for all. This year, we will need to review how provision is offered. Pupils will need to remain in bubbles however our hope is to offer sports clubs and fixtures to our pupils and encourage a large proportion of our cohort to engage in them.
Through careful consideration, the phase of sport funding 2020 –2021 (£17,720) will be used to develop PE and school sport in the following ways:
- Minibus costs to transport children to external sports fixtures - this may be reviewed during the year
- Lunchtime and after school sports clubs run by the sports coach
- Sports clubs run by other staff members
- Increased participation in competitive sport
- Internal CPD for all members of staff
- Provide a broader experience of a range of sports and activities to all pupils
- Equipment to provide all children with access to a diverse range of sports
- External teachers to deliver a range of new sports (cycling, skateboarding, scootering etc.)
