Takeley Primary School

Learning, achieving and enjoying together

Sports Premium Funding

PE and Sport at Takeley plays an important part in helping us to achieve our vision, our mission, our aims and our values, while helping the children develop and understand a healthy lifestyle and looking after their well-being.

To support this national initiative and build on the ‘Olympic Legacy’ the Government has provided all schools with a PE and Sport Grant. For 2017-18 we are expecting to receive £19,300.00

Over this period, we aim to;

  • continue to support the training of our teachers to help ensure future provision is sustainable by ensuring they work alongside a sports coach to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the ‘games’ aspect of Physical Education (PE).
  • continue to participate in the District Sports Partnership to help facilitate children’s participation in inter-school sport and events.
  • Improve the range and provision of PE equipment e.g. purchase basketball posts and balls so that Basketball can be included in the school’s curriculum.
  • Improve the range of play equipment at lunchtimes to enable children to actively engage in physical exercise and to co-operate as part of a team.
  • Plan for and build a key stage 2 adventure playground to enable children to develop; strength, balance, agility, flexibility, co-ordination, co-operation and teamwork
  • Enhance staffing costs so that recognition is given to the leadership and management of this key national initiative
