Sport At Millfields
Millfields First School Vision for P.E.: ‘ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.’
An increase in funding will enable Millfields to make further sustainable improvements and changes to the delivery of the PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities that take place at Millfields First School. These changes will be measured against the five key indicators of improvement:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
- The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
On 17th July 2017 the Department for Education confirmed that the Primary PE & Sport Premium will double from September 2017, to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England.
In the academic year 2017-2018 schools nationally received an increase in Sport Funding to spend on PE and Sport. Due to the funding, we were able to to provide pupils with an extended range of rich and varied PE and sport activities, delivered by high quality trainers and teachers. Children were enthusiastic about PE and their participation continued to increase particularly in after school activity clubs. The funding helped us to ensure that the provision we planned remained sustainable. We were able to provide staff with high quality training development, children with opportunities to experience a number of competitions and festivals as well as the chance for children to work with qualified sports coaches in a variety of new sports.
Using the finding, we continued to buy into and be a part of the ‘All Active Academy’. This provided a range of high quality opportunities and experiences that our children engaged in and we frequently worked with PE teachers from a local middle school, which supported transition for our children.
