Primary School P.E. and Sports Funding
The government has provided additional funding per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary schools across the country. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport and have the freedom to choose how they do this.
At Coppetts Wood we aim to provide high quality physical education for all children, delivered by members of staff and sports coaches, who are committed to engaging pupils and developing their skills in this area of the curriculum. We want to provide opportunities for children to enjoy sport and develop their skills and to have opportunities to take part in competitive sporting activities, both within our school and the wider community. By delivering these opportunities for our pupils, we aim to have a positive impact on their physical development, all-round health and confidence, while fostering a love of physical activity, which they will carry forward as they move through life.
School Games Mark - GOLD!
We have been awarded for the School Games Mark Gold Level for the second time! The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success. We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and participants who made our competitions possible. As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year. Special thanks to Ms Beharry and Ms Hancock, our PE leaders, John, who takes so many children out to competitions and Daniel, our Sports Apprentice.
These websites have 10-minute energiser activities that can pick children up when energy levels have gone low.
Please see the Pupil and Sports Premium tab for more information on how we have spent the money and the impact.
