What is the PE and Sport Premium Funding?
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum in order to improve physical provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools
The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following OBJECTIVE:
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.
It is expected that we will see improvements in the five key indicators:
At Langtons Junior Academy, we believe PE and Sport plays an important role in developing our pupils so that they get an active start in life and become healthier both mentally and physically. This can build mental resilience and lead to improved behaviour, and better academic achievement. The Sports Premium supports primary schools to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision so that pupils experience the benefits of regular exercise
At Langtons Junior Academy, we are committed to using this resource to develop high quality PE lessons, develop staff through team-teaching alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all children including those that are reluctant to participate in sport and physical activity.
How we are using it at Langtons Junior Academy
Our commitment to providing children with high quality competition access was recognised with the School Games National Gold Award after external validation at the end of summer 2022. This has been sustained for two years and we have been awarded Gold again, for continuing to give passionate and talented children the opportunity to participate in competitive sport, but also for the physical activity, mental and physical wellbeing activities and opportunities we have provided to each of the children across the school.
The Gold Award is the highest of those given out by National School Games and is for a school’s contribution and commitment in providing physical activity opportunities for all. We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, whether this be running in the Colour Run, taking part in games run by Playleaders and Sports Leaders at lunchtimes, taking part in clubs such as Netball, Boxing Bootcamp, gymnastics and multi-sports, competing during sports day or during a football or netball match.
We are part of the Havering Sports Collective which provides advice and quality training for teachers and opportunities for pupils to participate in inter-school sports competitions. This funding has enabled us to enter our children into a wide range of sporting competitions throughout the year as well as delivering staff training in a variety of areas across physical education.
At our school we have developed a plan to ensure this funding is invested to maximise the long term impact of our PE provision for pupils and staff. The impact of these initiatives is monitored through assessment of children’s skills, staff and pupil feedback and uptake of clubs.
