To continue the legacy of the 2012 Olympic games, the government dedicated a new 'PE and Sports Premium Funding' to all schools. This is designed to be used by schools to develop the range of sports a school offers as well as competitive sport. The key aim for the funding is to make sustainable changes and improvements to all staff within a school. Through training and support, it is expected that schools use the funding to ensure all children have a high standard of PE teaching throughout their time at primary school.
Through the use of the sports premium, we have successfully developed the sport provision at Greatwood. Currently, we have achieved the Youth Sports Trust Gold Mark for 2015 - 2017, School Games Gold Mark 2016 & 2017 and Platinum for 2018-19 and 2019-20. In July 2019 we won the Yorkshire PE award for Increased Participation in Competitive Sport.
We have had a successful bid for £7000 which we have already spent on a daily mile track that will be being built at the end of the Summer Term and throughout the Autumn Term.
At Greatwood we pride ourselves on the sporting opportunities we offer all children. Not only do we ensure that teaching of P.E is good or outstanding, we ensure that a range of extra curricular activities are available for all children to access. These include lunch times and after school clubs. In addition to this, children have the chance to take part in competitive sports in all areas of sports available. We believe in being fully inclusive and encourage children with SEND to take part in sport. Finally, we spend time training older children how to be sports leaders.
The sports funding has enabled us to develop our provision of P.E even further.
It is expected that the sports premium money spending should have an impact on the following areas. These have been highlighted in the table below using the indicating number next to each point. This shows how we are covering a range of key indicators throughout school.
1. The engagement of ALL pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy 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.
60 Active Minutes
Following on from the publication last year highlighting the government's target of helping to reduce childhood obesity, we have developed a wide range of ways to stay active throughout the day at Greatwood. In order to help children be more active, we aim for all children to have 60 active minutes during the school day, with another 30 active minutes out of school.
We have developed a wide range of ways to stay active during the day. These include:
