Physical Education (PE) and Sports Premium Information

Physical Education (PE)

At Elmgrove we are fortunate to have specialist PE coaches who deliver high quality teaching and learning to all pupils across the school in PE.

Our aim for PE is to create pupils who will be physically active and develop good habits for life in terms of health and exercise.

The aims and vision for our PE curriculum are to develop:

  • An interest in PE and a willingness to join in with a positive attitude
  • The range of sports pupils take part in throughout their school life
  • The ability to remain physically active for sustained periods of time and to develop good exercise habits for the future
  • A healthy lifestyle, being aware of the benefits of a balanced diet and regular exercise
  • The ability to swim at least 25 metres and know how to remain safe in and around water
  • To take initiative and become young leaders, organising, evaluating and motivating others
  • Our school Golden Values (Respect, Commitment, Kindness, Responsibility) through the practice of sport
  • A broad, ambitious education, including opportunities to be active during the school day and through extracurricular activities.
  • Continue to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education and sport through the Sports Premium funding.

Sports Premium Funding

At Elmgrove Primary School and Nursery, we believe that PE and Sport can play a vital role in a child’s personal development, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better when channelled the right way.

We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide primary schools with additional funding to improve the provision of PE and Sport in schools and have been gradually working hard to raise the profile of PE and Sport within our school. In July 2017, the government announced the Sport Premium funding would be doubling due to the huge success and impact the additional funding has had across the nation.

The whole school is fully committed to using this extra resource in developing high quality PE lessons, up-skilling teachers to improve subject knowledge and confidence levels, increasing extracurricular sports club provision, providing more competitive opportunities and encouraging young people to lead active and healthy lifestyles on a daily basis.

Utilising the positive power PE and sport can have on an individual it is our mission to ensure every child has access to quality coaching to help them realise their maximum potential.

Actual Funding Allocation 2021-2022

The Sport Premium Grant funding for primary schools will be calculated by the amount of primary school aged children. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

For the 2021-2022 academic year Elmgrove Primary School and Nursery will receive a total of £22,440 + amount of pupils x £10 each.

Five key areas the Sport Premium Funding will be spent on at Elmgrove

  • Ensuring ALL children are participating in regular physical activity, providing them with healthy lifestyles.
  • Providing more opportunities for children throughout the school, therefore promoting and raising the profile of sport and PE as a tool for whole school improvement.
  • Develop the sustainability of high quality P.E. teaching through a range of training opportunities for staff to further improve children’s progress.
