Sport Premium Overview
Sheep Dip Lane Primary School’s Vision Statement
At Sheep Dip Lane primary school we believe that physical education experienced in a safe, engaging and supportive environment is a significant factor in developing children’s physical confidence and motivation to participate in physical activity.
We aim to give a stimulating, enjoyable, and appropriately challenging learning experience within all aspects of Physical Education. Our children are also encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy lifestyle and be aware of the factors that affect our health and fitness.
We believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
Through PE & Sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for 2 years to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
What does the Sport Premium mean for my School?
‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).
We are working closely with Active Fusion www.activefusion.org.uk and have identified key areas through a self -review process to ensure we can meets the high expectations in PE and Sport for our children.
‘Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day’-(DfE June 2013)
