PE & Sports Premium
At Featherstone All Saints we aim to inspire children through creativity and the arts, invigorate them through sport, educate them on a healthy lifestyle and open their eyes to the diverse world around them. It is our mission to equip children with the tools they need to realise their full potential. To achieve this we will work in partnership with parents and the community, within a secure and caring environment.’
‘Together we believe, achieve and succeed’
At Featherstone All Saints Academy 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. Indeed, one of our three curriculum drivers is ‘Sport promoting a healthy lifestyle’ highlighting the emphasis we, as a school, place on the importance of PE to our children.
We, therefore, welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding 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.
Purpose of funding:
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.
The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:
- To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports
- To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence
- To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce
- Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement
