PE and School Sport Funding at Raynham Primary school

At Raynham, our aim is to provide all pupils with a high quality Physical Education Programme that builds knowledge, fitness, skill and the motivation required to ensure all our pupils can enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle now and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

We believe high quality physical education and school sport will contribute to a range of outcomes for our children.

The funding will develop a programme that includes:

  • Supporting the delivery of the Physical Education Curriculum through specialist coaches.
  • Increasing pupil enjoyment and participation in Physical Education and School Sports, so that all pupils attain the performance level they are capable of achieving.
  • Developing and sustaining positive attitudes towards healthy, active lifestyles and to use physical activity to improve pupils’ health, well-being and educational outcomes.
  • Continuing to improve the frequency, breadth and quality of Physical Education and Sport provision.
  • Detailed Physical Education Development Plans with short and long-term targets that enable all pupils (including target groups) to progress and achieve.
  • Improving the quality of teaching in order for all pupils to make regular and sustained progress.
  • Increasing opportunities for participation, including for our young SEND pupils, in a range of extra-curricular and competitive opportunities.
  • Using PE, School Sport and physical activity to impact on whole school priorities.
  • Funding allocated to ensure the delivery of high quality curriculum PE sessions across the school within and beyond curriculum time.
  •  Funding for CPD in areas of PE where skills based teaching is required

With the allocation of the PE premium, it is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport
