PE at Cobden
Our vision for PE at Cobden
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding (Sports Premium) for physical education (PE), sport and physical activity to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in school. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers and has recently been extended to run until 2020.
From September 2017, the decision to double the sports premium funding was made. This funding comes in conjunction with the childhood obesity strategy. As a result, this academic year we are due to receive £17660 in 2 payments. The funding is aimed at schools to achieve 5 key indicators as set by the DfE. Please have a look at our full breakdown of spending so far this academic year, how we are going to continue spending the funding and how we are working towards achieving these goals by clicking the PDF for the impact of the PE fund below.
At Cobden Primary School, we have identified several areas which we aim to improve and enhance through the use of the Sports Premium funding, in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils in PE, sport and physical activity.
Our identified priorities for 2017/18 are:
-to have children develop as problem solvers through embedding restorative practice throughout school
-to offer inclusive opportunities for all in sport and physical education through partnerships, enhancing our curriculum and offering new extra-curricular opportunities
-to develop healthy lifestyles not just through our PE, PSHE and DT curriculum
-use activity as a support for learning
-to develop early year’s physical literacy, communication and language, creativity and social skills
Please have a look through our page for sport participation and achievements as well as the premium end of year reports for the impact of the funding within our school each year since being introduced.
