PE and Sport Premium Policy
PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools
Archbishop Hutton’s School received £6608 P.E and Sports Premium funding. The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school and is used to encourage increased participation in P.E and sporting activities that help promote a positive attitude to developing children’s health and well-being.
We have used this funding to:
- Employ specialist teachers or qualified coaches to work alongside class teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in teaching P.E. This includes Enjoy-a-ball Paul who works with the children in EYFS and KS1, whilst KS2 children have weekly sports sessions with trained coaches which have included sessions on handball, gymnastics, cricket, hockey and athletics
- Buy into ‘Cyber Coaching’ online resource.
- Buy P.E resources and equipment to use both in lessons and during play-time and lunchtime.
- Partially fund the new ‘Move a Mile’ track which is used daily by all children and staff and by the local community out of school hours.
- Support a group of KS2 children to undertake the ‘Young Leaders’ sports training to enable them to lead physical activities and games for other children in school during play times and lunch times.
- The profile of P.E and sport has increased throughout school.
- All children now take part in the ‘Move a Mile’ project’ alongside school staff, which has not only developed children’s physical well-being and stamina but also their social interactions with others.
- The introduction of a child led running support group which was initiated by a group of older children who wanted to encourage the younger children to join in the ‘move a mile’ project.
- The introduction of an afterschool running club (requested by the children)
- E lessons are now always active, engaging and challenging and all children are encouraged to achieve their potential and beyond.
- There has been an increase in children taking part in out of school sporting activities and events such as the park run, colour dash and ‘tough mudder’ type events.
