Sport at Middle Park
Sport Premium at Middle Park
More children…. More active…. More often
The government announced that it is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum until the academic year 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school Headteachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.
P.E. and school sport continue to play a very important part in the life of Middle Park Primary School. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children learn more about themselves and each other; developing qualities such as respect, unity, co-operation and kindness. Sport and physical activity is used to encourage leadership, individual initiative, social skills and team building skills.
We are using the sport premium funding to support the development of P.E. and school sport in 2017-18 in the following ways;
- Joining the Greenwich School Sports Partnership and becoming an active participant within the group
- Recruiting a Sports Leader Apprentice from January 2018
- ‘More children… more active…. more often’ – continuing the development of our play leaders, active lunchtimes, daily mile in targeted year groups and increased physical activity throughout the school
- Specialist cricket coaching, developing skills of children and staff as well as securing opportunities for children to participate in tournaments
- A specialist dance tutor delivering weekly classes and facilitating greater opportunities for our children to perform within and beyond the school
- Continuing to provide a wide range of after-school sporting activities including Active Kids, cricket and soccer with Charlton FC
- Annual cycle training for children in Year 5
- An annual sports day for all children at Eltham Hill School
- Residential opportunities for Years 4 and 6 to develop outdoor adventure skills such as orienteering, climbing and archery
Our overall aim is to continue to raise the profile and standards in P.E. and school sport increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.
