Sports Premium

The government announced that it is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 - 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 head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. plays a very important part in the life of Luton Infant School. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, teamwork, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.

The government has announced that it is to continue with this funding for the foreseeable future.

We are therefore delighted to be able to use the £16,000 sport premium funding to support the development of P.E. and school sport in 2017-18 in the following ways:

  • Continue to work in close partnership with Greenacre Sports academy
  • Provide quality assured professional development opportunities for teachers enabling quality teaching and learning for all children
  • Provide EYFS team teaching sessions to ensure all children are receiving quality PE sessions
  • Provide lunchtime energiser clubs and work alongside the midday meal supervisors to ensure children are active at lunchtimes
  • Continue to offer a wide range and number of school activities to pupils across the school
  • To develop mini sports crew training in Year 2 to help children with their leadership skills
  • To increase competitive opportunities by entering competitions against other schools in Medway
  • To have a healthy schools weeks to help children and their parents with having a healthier lifestyle
  • Develop cross-curricular links with PE and maths to help children become more active whilst learning the curriculum and get children more active during their school day

 

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. (Insert picture of children being active at school)
