We have just been awarded the School Games Silver Award and here is what we did to secure it.
Increasing Engagement In School Games
• Provide all students with two hours of Physical Education, school sport and physical activity per week (made up of curricular and extra curriculum activity) – applicable to years 3 -11 only.
• Engage at least 35% of pupils (10% for special schools/PRUs) in extracurricular sporting and physical activity every week – applicable to years 3-11 only.
• Over the course of the academic year, have targeted provision for those least active young people in your school and a minimum take up of at least 10% from those identified as least active at the start of the the academic year. This take up needs to be sustained over a term – applicable to years 3-11 only.
• Use the School Games formats to provide the opportunity for both boys and girls to take part in age and stage appropriate level of competition.
But we don't want to stop there so watch out for more opportunities this year.
Sports Funding Westover Primary School 2018 - 2019 PE and sport premium for primary schools The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. It was set up in 2013 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The government provided an additional £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2015.
The success of the PE and sport premium has led the government to extending their pledge and providing additional funding until 2020. This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, is being allocated to primary schools. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
At Westover Primary School we have developed an action plan in order to continue to improve PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport. Our ethos means that the funding for 2019-2020 will:
Ensure that all pupils have the best opportunity to achieve their potential.
Ensure that all pupils know about the Olympic values and its legacy.
Ensure that all pupils receive high quality teaching in all aspects of PE and Games, so that pupils make regular sustained progress.
CPD opportunities for staff to deliver high quality PE provision.
Ensure all pupils are provided with a range of extracurricular and enrichment activities.
Continue to increase levels of participation in physical activity through internal and external competitions within Portsmouth schools.
Develop competitions within the school, ensuring that all pupils experience competition and /or sporting festivals and are challenged to improve their own performance in a range of sports.
Pupils receive two hours of taught P.E a week which cover a range of physical activities including gymnastics, dance, team work, games, multi skills and athletics.
Pupils take part in Sports Day which takes place in the summer term.
Ensure that all pupils have a good understanding of a healthy life style (This is embedded within our Science and PSHE curriculums across the year groups).
