Physical Education Funding – Planned Expenditure 2017 – 2018

The Department for Education provides specific physical education (PE) funding to enhance the core PE provision within schools to ensure that pupils are more physically active, thus building confidence, enhancing pupil learning experiences and improving the health and physical well being of children whilst at school

 It has been confirmed that from September 2017 the PE and Sport Premium will be doubled, to help further improve physical education and outdoor play in England and to prevent childhood obesity and encourage children to lead more active lives, starting at school.

It is part of our school strategy to tackle obesity and support our Healthy School approach, as well as working with Lambeth on mental health programmes to ensure children have the strategies to be confident and healthy, both physically and mentally.

Funding received:

Our Aims:

At St Bede’s we aim for all children to enjoy and develop positive attitudes to Physical Education and sport in order to improve fitness, health and well-being and allow each child to fulfil their potential.

To introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport, recognising that Physical Education has a positive influence on concentration, behaviour and academic achievement.

To support and involve the least active children in school clubs and holiday clubs.

Planned Expenditure 2017 – 2018:

At St Bede’s the majority of the funding will be used to continue to provide a specialist PE coach during lunch breaks, to teach and facilitate a comprehensive programme of daily team sports to all of our Reception to Y2 pupils e.g. football, tag rugby, netball, basketball, rounder’s, hockey, cricket, teaching children new sports they may not be able to access elsewhere.

The school also has a morning exercise class, ‘Morning Movers’ which is supported by our allocated PE funding, which will continue into 2018.

Children will continue to be encouraged to attend after school clubs, including football, street dance, ballet, salsa, gymnastics and athletics.

The extra funding we will receive will be spent on Yoga classes for our children, to go side by side with Lambeth’s Mental Health and Well Being programme, being implemented in schools this year.
