Welcome to Bishop Challoner
PE and Sports Premium Primary Programme
The Bishop Challoner PE and Sport Premium Primary Programme continues to flourish and we hope that the academic year 2017-18 will continue in the same way. This document has been produced to provide you with information as to what support your school will receive from us during 2017-18. By being part of our established infrastructure, you have the opportunity to continue to be part of a very successful, nationally recognised team who deliver high quality programmes to young people, lunchtime supervisors and teaching staff.
As we are sure you are aware, the government’s ‘PE and Sport Premium’ funding is to help Primary schools to develop PE and School Sport. As a secondary school that has used PE and School Sport to raise standards and aspirations across the whole school we welcome the continued government funding to allow us to support the development of Primary PE and Sport. As this funding is ‘ring fenced’ it will be monitored for effectiveness through Ofsted reviews and inspections. Being part of this programme will ensure that your school is fully prepared for Ofsted rigour.
We intend to raise awareness with all local schools and families about the new Department for Health Childhood Obesity strategy. In terms of promoting physical activity The Chief Medical Officers have recommended that ‘young people aged 5 to 18 should be undertaking at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity every day (including 30 minutes during the school day). The importance of physical activity and sport in a child’s routine cannot be overstated. There is a wealth of evidence which proves that exercise has a positive impact on learning in other subjects, teaches children important qualities such as self-confidence and benefits physical and mental health.
We aim to:
Provide high quality PE and school sport opportunities for all young people to inspire them to be physically active and healthy.
Provide an innovative approach and allow colleagues to network and share good practice.
Work creatively and coherently to deliver a tailored service that meets the needs of the
schools and young people in our network and the local community.
Support all schools in providing a high quality CPD programme that supports effective delivery of PE
lessons and maximises pupil progress.
Provide access to and draw down additional funding streams that would benefit all schools.
Support schools and staff to develop important characteristics in pupils such as resilience,
perseverance and confidence through all our programmes.
