Pelton Pupil Premium Spending Academic Year 2017-18 with impact
The primary PE and sports premium, which is ring-fenced for primary schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to their physical activity offer, was launched in 2013 as part of the London 2012 Olympic legacy.
The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officer guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).
Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium
ALL pupils leaving primary school should be 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 premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators
- 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.
- The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sport and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
In the Year 2019-20 our school will receive £18,360 of Sports Premium funding.
At Pelton Community Primary School we are committed to providing varied and exciting sporting opportunities for our pupils. The following plans show how the premium is being allocated in our school:
At our school we encourage children to become confident in swimming.
In the year 2019/2020 our swimming lesson were disrupted by the COVID19 Pandemic and we missed 3 months of Year 6 top-up lessons. Despite this we are proud to publish that:
58% of Year 6 children were assessed as able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres using a range of strokes.
55% of Year 6 children are also able to perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations.
