Building on the success of the London 2012 Olympics the Government are providing £150 million in each of the next two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools through the ‘Sports Premium’ funding.
At Crowle Primary Academy we are working closely with the Axholme Academy and the Local Authority School Sports Partnership to develop sports within our school.
We have appointed four Sports Ambassadors from Year 6 to help us in this process. The chosen children are Grace, Darcey, Morgan and William. These children were voted for by their peers and all demonstrate excellent sporting ability and leadership skills. They will be attending courses throughout the year to support them in this role.
A programme to develop the skills of all the teachers in the teaching of PE has been put in place over the next year and the Dinner Supervisors and Play Leaders will receive further training to develop their knowledge of games that can be played at lunchtimes.
We aim for more children to take part in more competitions and to take more than one team to each event to help us achieve this. We intend to buy new kits and equipment to help us develop sport skills.
In assembly we wrote a vision for PE;
“At Crowle Primary Academy we like PE lessons that are fair, challenging and enjoyable. Through PE we like to learn a wide range of sports and skills so that we can perform well in games and competitions. We want PE to help us to get fit and to lead healthy lifestyles. Everybody should be able to take part in PE and have the chance to become a Sports Leader.”
We have recently achieved the Sainsburys’ Kitemark Silver award for our commitment to quality PE provision and plan to achieve the Gold award within the next two years. We ultimately want children to make excellent progress in PE during their time at our school and we want to support them in leading healthy lifestyles.
We would like your views on sports provision in school and thank you for completing the PE survey with your child.
