Sports Premium & PE
From September 2013 the DFE has provided additional funding for schools to develop a legacy from London 2012 Olympics with the funding doubling for 2017-2019.
Some of the funding our school receives is used to employ one of our part-time teaching member of staff to work with all of our teachers to enhance the quality of PE teaching within the school through CPD to provide a progressive, inclusive and challenging PE curriculum. As well as organising a range of clubs, leadership and both intra and inter competition opportunities.
It will be an exciting few years within the school to enhance the already great provision we have and continue to enhance the quality of already excellent teaching and learning.
In 2017-2018, Almondsbury C of E Primary School achieved Gold in the Sainsbury's School Games Kitemark Awards.
In addition to this, the Sports Council completed a leadership project to raise the profile of inclusive sport and achieved Platinum in the Sainsbury's School Games Kitemark Awards for two years 2017-2019
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
