The PE Premium is extra funding provided by the Government to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, so that they develop healthy lifestyles.
In 2014/15 we spent the funding on a combination of single experience activities aimed at raising self esteem and confidence, purchase of necessary equipment, external specialist coaching and CPD for staff to enable long term delivery of specialist activities. The initiatives and activities which learners have benefitted from have included horse riding, uni-hockey, trampolining, rock climbing, scooting, football, forest schools activities and mountain biking.
In 2014/15 the theme for our PE Premium spend is 'Experiences of an active lifestyle' and we plan to build on last year's experiences and training. Learners will continue to access last year's exciting initiatives alongside a whole host of new activities to extend learners experiences. This year's initiatives include sessions in break dancing, circus skills, archery, football coaching and a week-long residential. We have also commissioned a team to work with our KS2 pupils on having a healthy lifestyle through eating and fitness plans.
