Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
PE and Sport Premium
The government is providing additional funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Blair Peach Primary school.
This funding should help embed the Department for Education’s vision for Primary PE. The Department for Education’s vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is to ensure all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
We are delighted to announce that we, Blair Peach, have achieved the School Games Mark Gold Award for the 2021/22 academic year. The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success. The award looks at a variety of different aspects such as curriculum, competition, leaders, officiating and community involvement. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.
Blair Peach Primary School promotes the Sainsbury’s School Games to parents and the local community once every half term. Blair Peach Primary School features match reports and competition results on the school websites. This helps parents feel connected to the benefits created in PE.
