PE Premium Funding
What is the PE Premium funding?
The Primary PE and Sport Premium is a direct grant from the government for Head teachers to allocate in ways they see fit to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
The PE pupil premium is spent alongside our ethos of encouraging high quality learning experiences for all children and offering opportunities for those who may not otherwise.
Specialist PE Teacher
We employ a specialist PE teacher, Mrs Roberts, who supports PE learning across the school.
This ensures continuity and progression in PE. Mrs Roberts is also the school PE coordinator and manages school participation in Partnership sports fixtures and events.
We also have benefited from specialist coaches throughout the year in TAG rugby and cricket.
This year we sent Years 3 - 6 swimming (68 children) for a term. We are also paying for up to three swimming teachers to lead the sessions and ensure small group numbers.
The Headteachers of the Woodcote Partnership jointly employ a member of staff to run and organise a packed calendar of inter-school competitive sports fixtures and events. This provides a range of competitive opportunities and also targets key vulnerable groups. So far this year our children have taken part in:
9 Cross-country competitions (years 1-6)
5 football tournaments (KS2 boys and girls)
Sports hall athletics
Orienteering (year 3,4 and 5)
2 netball tournaments
Inter-house netball and cross country
We have contributed towards the new Multi-Use Games Area in conjunction with the Community Joint Use Committee (JUC) and FONS.
We have also invested money in equipment for the playground to ensure active playtimes. This has included training our Year 5s as playgrounds leaders.
