PE and school sport play a very important part in the life of Grendon Underwood. We believe that PE 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, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.
Through providing a balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities our PE curriculum caters for children with a variety of abilities and needs.
We want to promote the pleasure and enjoyment that pupils can gain from physical activity and to enable them to lead a healthy, active lifestyle for the rest of their lives.
Physical education provides opportunities for the children to be:
- enjoy sport
- build their physical co-ordination
- social skills
- work as individuals and as part of a team
- rise to challenges
- learn about important values
- compete in a safe environment
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school Headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and, therefore, can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
To see how we at Grendon Underwood have spent and plan to spend our PE and Sports Premium, please see the information below.
