At Dunton Green Primary School we pride ourselves on having a strong tradition of taking an active part in inter-school sports competitions. We run a wide range of free after-school and before school activities every day of the week, offering opportunities for children to participate in a variety of sports from football to dance, judo to athletics. This is in addition to a full programme of dance, gymnastics, games and swimming through class PE lessons. Additionally from September 2016 the school will be taking part in the mile a day initiative and KS1 children will be taking part in 15 minutes of activity a day.
What is the ‘Sport Premium’ and how will it help us achieve our goals?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for the Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. When asked about the 'Sport Premium' at its launch, Lord Coe reflected: ‘When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London's vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport. By focusing on primary schools, we have the opportunity to use sport and physical activity to shape the daily lives of young people. I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people.’ (Lord Coe)
Dunton Green Primary School has received a sports premium funding of £8,735 so far with an additional amount to come in, in November. This is ring-fenced solely for physical education. It has enabled us to continue to improve the breadth and quality of sport we offer.
