Sport Premium - academic year 2022 -2023
At The Queen’s School we believe it is every child’s right to receive high quality learning and teaching in all aspects of the curriculum, this must include physical education. Children have a right to be challenged in PE as in any other area of the curriculum. Therefore, The Queen’s school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical, intellectual and social development. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum contributes significantly to the wider educational growth of the whole child; developing physical skills, providing opportunities for social interaction, cooperation, competition and challenge.
The Queen’s School Vision for Sport and PE
- We provide a carefully planned broad and balanced physical education curriculum that develops pupils’ confidence to try new activities as well as enhancing their existing skills in a diverse range of environments and experiences.
- Our PE lessons are planned using the Get Set 4 PE platform to ensure that skills are carefully progressed year on year. This planning platform aligns with our school values, our whole child approach to PE and the objectives laid out in the National Curriculum. Teachers use their excellent knowledge of their pupils to adapt this planning to ensure all pupils are challenged and engaged in their lesson.
- We embrace competition in all our curriculum lessons, extra-curricular school clubs, intra and inter-school competitions. When planning our competitions, we ensure they meet the motivation and competence of all pupils and align with our school values of fairness and respect.
- We value the role of Leadership in PE by providing opportunities for all pupils to support, encourage and develop others. A leadership training is offered to all year 5 pupils, to train as sport leaders to lead activities in the playground and plan Sports Day events for KS1.
- We listen to and value the views of our pupils and teachers who are given regular opportunities to review our PE curriculum and ensure it continues to reflect the needs and motivations of our school community.
We welcome the Government’s announcement to continue The Sport Premium funding to improve provision for physical education (PE and sport) in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource to continue to develop high quality PE lessons, alongside developing greater opportunities for sporting competitions and activities for all our pupils in order to achieve our vision for sport and PE at The Queen’s School.
