What is Sports Premium Funding?
Use of government funding to improve standards in quality of PE. Give opportunities for all children to participate thorough in-school sessions from sport providers, and for staff to improve their skills in line with new developments in curriculum and training so they may continue this work. Provide extra opportunities for many children to access sport to foster their own enthusiasm through after school clubs. Improve provision for early years outdoor play.
At Thurlton Primary School we believe that sport not only contributes to the physical development of pupils but also makes a significant contribution to pupils' personal well-being and enjoyment of school. Our aim is to provide at least two hours of PE provision per week, whether it be through direct sports teaching during curriculum time or through lunchtime or extra-curricular after school provision. We hope to widen the children’s experiences by introducing them to activities which may be new to them and giving them opportunities to participate and interact with children from other settings. Staff will also be up-skilled through CPD and working alongside experts, to enable them to offer high quality PE and sport activity sessions
Our residential visits focus on outdoor and adventurous activity challenges such as rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, rafting, archery and orienteering
