PE & Sport Premium Funding
At St John’s CE Primary we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well being of children. Through PE and sport, children develop many of our core values such as cooperation, respect, determination and kindness.
Our overall aim is to raise standards and participation in P.E. and school sport increasing the opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.
For 2017/2018 St John’s CE Primary was allocated £14,044 PE & Sport Premium. Please see the links below which show how we have used our PE & Sport Premium in previous years.
We have had an incredibly active year with lots of different sporting events going on for all the children to take part in. Here is just a snapshot of some of the things we got up to.
Back in September the whole school took part in World Fitness Day, there was skipping, jogging and dancing (even some of the adults in school were seen showing off a few moves). When Sport Relief came around once again the whole school got active and managed to do 300,000 steps during the week to contribute to the national target of 1 billion steps. The final big event of the year was our annual sports day which gave every child a chance to show off their skills, teamwork and enjoyment of being active.
Healthy Lifestyle Programmes
Many of our classes took part in programmes to find out more about how to make healthy choices and how being active can benefit your well-being. Blackpool FC Community ran the Fit2Go programme and the Gulp Challenge; we also took part in the Sport4Champions programme and invited the school nurse in to talk about how to be healthy.
The children have been able to experience a fantastic range of sports during the year:
Football, athletics, fencing, archery, yoga, gymnastics, swimming, badminton, handball, dodgeball, cycling, dancing, orienteering and tennis.
We had teams competing with other schools in swimming, running, boys and girls football, athletics, orienteering and multi-skill challenges. The girls footballers were runners up in the Blackpool Primary Cup Final and our Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 indoor athletics teams both reached the Blackpool Finals.
The school receives funding from the PE Premium to support PE and Sport in school. A full breakdown of how this was spent and the impact it had within school is detailed in the document below.
School Games Award
At the end of the year we were delighted to be informed that we had achieved the Silver School Games Award for the fourth year in a row, a nice way to sign the year off.
