PE and Sport Premium
PE and School Sport (Including Sports Premium)
PE and school sport has always had a high profile at Trefonen. We were the first school in Shropshire to be awarded the DfE ‘Active Mark’ in recognition of our commitment to providing quality PE. We went on to be awarded ‘Active Mark Gold’.
We have since been awarded the School Games Silver award 2015/16 and in 2016/17 to recognise our commitment to School Games sports and competition. In 2017/ 18 we were awarded the School Games Gold award. This was re-awarded again in 2018/19
In 2019/20 we retained our Gold School Games award. We were also delighted to be awarded the School Games Virtual Award for all of our work encouraging activity through lockdown with activities such as our 10k Challenge and Rainbow Sports Day
It is our aim that all pupils leave our school being physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for healthy lifestyles and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Our PE Curriculum
Our PE curriculum promotes physical development and teaches pupils to value the benefits of participation in physical activity. It also helps to establish self- esteem through the development of physical confidence and helps pupils to cope with success and failure in competitive and co-operative physical activities. PE also contributes to the development of interpersonal skills and links between our school and other schools.
The Government committed to providing funding of £160 million per annum until 2020 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This has now been extended and doubled to £320 million.
Purpose of the funding
The premium should be spent on ‘making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport’ for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Schools should spend the sport funding on the following:
- Developing or adding to the PE, physical activity and sport that our school provides.
- Building capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit all pupils joining the school in future years.
The premium should be spent on 5 key indicators:
- Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
- Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sports
