PE Premium/Grant Funding
At Rosecroft Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Rosecroft Primary School is committed to using the P.E and Sports Premium Funding to enhance and progress the good quality teaching already provided by a specialised teacher and the other members of the teaching and support staff. The school will also use it to increase and inspire the opportunities for children to be fit, active and gain a passion for sport.
The school also believes that encouraging a love and respect for physical activity for life does not just stop at the boundaries of the classroom. Therefore, we are providing more opportunities for focussed play at break and lunchtimes with new resources, areas to play and time set aside for staff training.
One of our teacher’s has completed a National Award for PE Subject Leaders to ensure the school is providing the best Physical Education it possibly can and other staff members are being given training opportunities too.
We have invested some of our money in to external organisations to come in and deliver a variety of activities and after school clubs. The school regularly organises events for Sport Relief and Race for Life. We have already had Chance2Shine Cricket coaching, provide the school with PE lessons and there are more sessions planned for this academic year and the next.
Our target is for every child to have the opportunity to be physically active for at least 1 hour a day. To achieve this we will focus on lunchtime activities and school clubs. These school clubs will be supported with the new funding and a wider range of physical activities will be available to try. Staff training is being undertaken so that teachers and teaching assistants can provide high quality P.E and the school will use its NPECTS trained specialist among its staff.
Premier sports are now regular visitors to our school providing many physical education activities. They have run numerous after school clubs this year including street dance, gymnastics, football and multi skills.
As we have moved to a new school site with a brand new purpose built school building we require new resources and equipment to ensure we can deliver PE and physical activity to the high standards that we are striving for including Key Stage 2. We have recently purchased some new P.E equipment to heighten the experience of all children in our school in PE lessons and at break times. However, the school still needs a long list of equipment to enable us to teach a wider variety of sports and activities and to provide competitive sport opportunities. These opportunities will be within school and with other schools in our cluster, promoting our school within the community.
