The Grove Infant and Nursery School

Achieving our potential in our creative learning community

Sports Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Sports Premium Grant 2017-18

 

The school continues to use the grant provided by Central Government to make an impact on pupil’s lifestyles and physical wellbeing through sport.
At the Grove we are using the additional funding to ensure that Sports provision is high quality and participation in sports activities through the curriculum and extra-curricular activities is extended.
Targets

 

To support more activity throughout the school day

Classes are encouraged to run a mile at least 3 times a week. This is supported and encouraged by the PE Lead and Sports Coach who provide incentives to children to keep trying to increase the time they are active.  The daily mile was a challenge to us, but teachers know how worthwhile it is to get moving as often as they can!

 

Play times and Lunch times

Having a coach enables us to ensure that children are engaged in physical activity on the playground at break and lunch time.  On wet days the Coach may lead Just Dance in the Hall, or he is timetabled to organise games outside for everyone to join in with on certain days of the week.

 

To provide a high quality PE curriculum, accessible to all. 

We employ a Sports Coach to deliver high quality PE lessons to all age groups, and for this we use funding from Sports Premium Grant.  All year groups enjoy specialist teaching.  Nursery and Reception have additional activities during Child Initiated Learning to develop their physical skills.  The coach provides a positive role model to children in school.Teachers will still deliver elements of the PE curriculum, and where they have training needs we will support them.

 

To provide access to high quality coaching in extra-curricular activities
The Sports Coach delivers extra-curricular clubs, free of charge, 3 days a week. We are aiming to continue to build participation in sports clubs, encouraging more children to try a wide range of sporting activities, particularly those children who do not currently attend any sports provision within or outside school.
 

To enhance PE resources where appropriate

We audit our resources annually and ensure that we have all that we need to support our teaching and after school provision.
 

To engage with other schools in competitive interschool competitions

Our Sports Coach works with other PE leaders locally to set up and run termly interschool sporting competitions for KS1.  Working with other Infant schools and local Primary schools small scale events are planned to encourage team work and a desire to do our best.
