At Charnwood Primary Academy we aim to equip all children with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle. Through our sports funding we have been able to provide a range of different amenities which has developed the teaching and learning of PE within the school.  Below we have outlined how we intend to spend our PE funding for the current year.

 

COVID-19: Interpreting the Government Guidance in a PESSPA Context

At Charnwood, pupils will stay safe by adhering to current government requirements.

Activities will be non-contact and will not require shared use of equipment.

Any equipment used is cleaned appropriately as per guidelines.

Facilitate physical education lessons outdoors to minimise contact with peers and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Implement hygiene protocols – washing hands frequently and cleaning of equipment.

What is the PE and Sports Premium Funding?

The government is providing funding of over £450 million per annum for academic years 2013-2020 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving provision of PE and sport but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

The vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium: ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following OBJECTIVE: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  • Key Indicator 1: 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.
  • Key Indicator 2: the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Key Indicator 3: increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Key Indicator 4: broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Key Indicator 5: increased participation in competitive sport

The Intent of our Physical Education Curriculum 

PE at Charnwood aims to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing in our children. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier lifestyle. We follow the National Curriculum and aim to offer children a wide range of sports that children might not get to experience anywhere else.  We aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to succeed in physical activities. Furthermore, we want to teach children how to cooperate and collaborate with others as part of a team. Children should be able to enjoy competition, inside and outside of school, whilst playing with fairness and respect.  Learns should learn that the only way to be successful is to work hard, show resilience and believe that anything is possible. Finally, all children should understand how to live a healthy lifestyle away from school by recognising the need for regular fun physical activity, socialising, avoidance of stress, healthy nutrition and quality sleep.
