Sports and PE

PE AND SPORTS PREMIUM

      

Primary PE and Sports Premium is a Government initiative that aims to help increase and improve PE and sporting opportunities for children in schools. It was first provided in the 2012-13 academic year and the current Government has pledged to continue this funding until 2020.

At The Heights we are committed to ensuring the provision of sport in the school is of the highest standards. To this effect we spend the money in a number of ways.

We have continued to increase the number and range of after school sporting activities on offer to all children across the school.

The funding has also been used to ensure that the children receive an exciting PE curriculum. This was achieved through extra training for teaching and support staff in a variety of areas such as Athletics, Gymnastics and Multi-Skills. This training has helped develop the skills and confidence of staff to deliver high quality PE lessons and was strongly supported and partly led by the Headteacher, Karen Edwards, who is a PE specialist.

We have bought into the Reading School’s Sports Partnership and developed more opportunities for the children to take part in more inter-school competitions and activities, including the South Oxfordshire Cross Country series, Tag Rugby, Football, Cricket and Hockey, Basketball, Netball for pupils in Years 2, 3 4 and 5. Many of these festivals and competitions are organized by Performance Sports.

We continue to develop the range, amount and quality of sports equipment available for children at The Heights to use.
