Sport At Millfields

At Millfields First School our vision for Physical Education (P.E) is that we want to ensure that all our children are healthy and enjoy taking part in regular physical activity. We want to ensure a lasting sustainable impact in their lives and to develop a love for participating in sports activities.

What did we spend the funding on during the last academic year 2015-2016?

The funding allowed us to buy into and be a part of the North Worcestershire School Games network (All Active Academy) which provided us with a range of high quality training opportunities for different members of staff. Children were able to attend many well-organised festivals and competitions. The funding was also spent on coaches to work with the children and to meet the training needs of staff during curriculum time and after school clubs. Some of our children were also given the opportunity to experience quality outdoor adventure activities. Transport was paid for to enable children to attend some competitions and festivals, for example, bellboating and tennis. To enhance sports provision further we also purchased new equipment and have improved playground markings for use during curriculum time and playtimes. This will also continue to help support children’s progression in competitions and festivals.

Children thoroughly enjoyed the experiences they had throughout their PE lessons and during after school clubs. Throughout the year there was increased participation in sports which is brilliant. Children built on and developed a range of skills in a variety of different sports.

This academic year 2016- 17

This academic year schools nationally continue to receive Sport Funding to spend on PE. Due to the funding, we continue to be able to provide pupils with a range of rich and varied PE and sport activities. Children are enthusiastic about PE and children’s participation continues to increase particularly during after school clubs. The funding helps to ensure that the provision we put in place is sustainable. We continue to be able to provide staff with high quality training development, children with opportunities to experience a number of competitions and festivals and the chance for children to work with qualified sports coaches.

Using the finding, we continue to buy into and be a part of the ‘All Active Academy’. This provides a range of high quality opportunities and experiences that our children can engage in and we regularly work with PE teachers from a local middle school, which supports transition for our children.
