Sports Premium

The Governor responsible for Sports Premium is Mrs K Varsani.

Sports Premium Funding

All schools receive funding for PE through the Sports Premium which is now in its tenth year. 

For the year 2022-23 we received £17,840.   

We have continued to work with OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning), on improving our provision at lunchtimes and our outdoor space to encourage active, happy and healthy lunchtimes.  We wanted to promote a joy in moving and playing and to help creativity as well.  We have had play sessions where we invited parents and carers into school to see our playtimes in action.

We also continue to improve our staff confidence, knowledge and skills in the teaching of PE  through specialist teacher training and PE courses.  This helped to ensure that we were following a curriculum that provides a good progression of skills and that helped the children to be both challenged and supported  where needed.

We spent money on top-up swimming lessons for Year 6, in particular as this year group was affected by COVID-19 and missed out on some swimming lessons during this time.

We attended inter-school competitions through the School Games and also through the Bexley Support Package.

We used this as follows:

Staff training

Training from the PE specialist was given to teaching staff and this included training in: rounders, tennis, locomotion, cricket and rackets, bats and balls.

Orienteering and Adaptive and Inclusive PE courses run by the borough were also attended.

Competitions and clubs

We attended an Orienteering competition, a Multi-Skills competition, a Cross Country Running competition.

Pupils from our specialist provision took part in a  Paralympics event hosted by a local school.

We had two School Games Days, one in September and one in May.  Our Year 6 pupils acted as leaders during these events.  They ran carousel activities and helped to organise the races. 

Football games have been run by coaches at lunchtimes.

We offered football and gymnastics clubs in school; these ran across the whole year.

Specialist sports coaches

Football coaches worked alongside our midday supervisors to promote active lunchtimes three times a week,

PE equipment

Equipment purchases included: nets, pup up goals, extra balls, rackets and bean bags for both PE lessons and to enhance outdoor play.
