Sports Premium Funding

PE at Southbroom Infants School is an important part of school life. The aim is to encourage pupils to have a life-long interest and enjoyment of physical activity. All pupils have high quality PE timetabled where they follow the new National Curriculum. Pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1 develop fundamental skills looking specifically at movement, agility, balance, coordination, individually and with others. At Southbroom Infants School we believe that children develop many skills through PE including team work, perseverance, cooperation and confidence as well as physical skills and development. It also teaches children about the way their body works and helps them think about keeping healthy and looking after their bodies for life. Taking part in competitive games is also a key part of the Key Stage 1 curriculum.

Pupils are also given the chance to take part in a range of extra-curricular PE activities at lunchtimes and after school throughout the academic year. There are a number of opportunities to take part in local intra school fixtures, festivals and competitions. The school works closely with Devizes School Sports Network.

Another positive initiative our school started in September 2016,  is the ‘Daily Mile’ where each class walks, jogs or runs a mile each school day. The class chooses a time during the day to complete their mile and it has proven to be a wonderfully positive initiative. There have been many benefits including:

  • Improving physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing.
  • It is fun, friendly and social – this is vital and ensures sustainability.
  • All children are included and all children succeed.
  • Children return to class refreshed, energised and settle quickly to work.

Starting in 2013 every state-funded Primary school was given additional funding (PE Premium) to allocate to improving sport provision and PE in the school. Each academic year the school is given £8000 with an additional sum of £5 per pupil.

To ensure we are giving the children every opportunity to become healthy and active for life we are using the Government PE Premium to buy into DSSN (Devizes School Sports Network). This service offers us:

  • A bespoke pedagogy service (developing pupil assessment, competition within class etc)
  • A specialist PE teacher to work alongside teaching staff to support and up level teaching of PE.
  • Staff CPD including teaching inclusive sports (seated volleyball, blind football, boccia)
  • Curriculum festivals across the year.
  • High level coaching from PH sports to run high quality extra-curricular clubs for all children.
