PE and Sports funding 2017-18



Our school’s vision statement for P.E at Newton Flotman Church of England Primary School is to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum which inspires all pupils to develop a lifelong passion and interest in physical exercise and to provide the opportunity for all children, irrespective of age and ability, to participate, succeed, develop character and fulfil their potential in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities.


PE and Sport Premium Funding is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils. Schools receive funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money’.

As a result of the additional funding the school aims to:

  • Improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
  • Increase pupils’ participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

AIMS FOR 2017-18

Our approach will be to continue to develop the successful areas from the previous year and to introduce new opportunities for our pupils:

After discussing Physical Education with teachers, governors, parents and children we have decided on the following vision for our school.

  • We will experience a broad and balanced Physical Education curriculum
  • We will have lessons and extra-curricular activities with the right level of challenge
  • We will experience new PE activities with a variety of teaching methods
  • We will learn to manage ourselves and our bodies in different situations
  • We will enjoy learning and be creative so that we all personally drive and succeed, whatever the level we start

At Newton Flotman teaching will respond to:

  • age differences
  • pupils with special educational needs
  • disability
  • gifted and talented children
  • cultural/religious differences
  • pupil premium children

We believe all children will be able to enjoy and fully participate in PE. Our aim is to make sure all children experience PE and sport in a positive way, to develop their own self esteem and confidence.

“At the beginning of the year I was nervous in PE and did not want to do it, now I 100% love it” (quote from a year 2 child after a tag rugby lesson)

Ensuring high quality PE

Our school believes in supporting teachers to develop their skills so that our children receive high quality PE. The PE coordinator is available to help all staff in planning and delivery and we have a number of teachers with specialist knowledge of particular sports. Training is also available to teachers who feel they need further support in their teaching of PE.

Rewarding achievements

We encourage children to share their achievements in school during assemblies and in our newsletter. We have a ‘Sporty Successes’ display which has photos and results of achievements taken place at school and out of school. We enjoy hearing about what individual children are achieving in sport at home.
