Over the last 7 years the government has supported schools to encourage children to live healthy lives and to build on the PE provision in school. They have done this by providing funding which Schools must use to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they provide.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In 2020-2021, Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. Schools are accountable for this funding and they are asked to publish an annual report and review statement to show how the money is intended to be used and the impact of it.
At Oak Tree Primary School we are committed to provide the children with positive PE experiences and to encourage the children to become both physically and mentally healthy. Below are our annual sports premium reports that set out how we use the money for the pupils in our school.
At Oak Tree Primary we aim to:
• Create a curriculum that develops, motivates and enthuses every child
• Give opportunities for all pupils to develop their leadership and coaching skills
• Improve health and well-being
• Provide high quality opportunities
• Assist each individual to be the best they can be
• Promote lifelong learning, active participation and competition
• Create a lasting legacy of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
• Promote competition and excellence within sport and help foster links with and encourage attendance of ‘higher sporting institutions’
