What is PE Sport Funding?
In April 2013, the Government announced additional funding for physical education (PE) and sport in schools. This funding has again been allocated to schools for the academic year 2017/18 and is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school
This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision resulting in increased numbers of pupils developing healthy life styles, raising their performance levels and engaging in PE and sport.
Vision for the Primary P.E and Sport Premium
At Thorpe Primary School we want all children to enjoy PE and to encourage participation in a range of activities including those that are competitive.
We want all children to leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
At Thorpe Primary School, we teach swimming in Year 5. All of the children get the opportunity to go swimming and we aim for as many and possible to reach the Nationally Expected Level. We are required to report on the number of children in Year 6 who have met the following standards:
|Swimming attainment of Y6 pupils|
|Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres||100%|
|Use a range of strokes effectively||100%|
|Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations||96%|

Areas to Improve 2018/19
· Look at increasing the number of clubs available to enable a greater % of pupils can attend after school clubs.
· Widen the range of sport and activities available to children such as taster sessions.
· Develop opportunities for more physical activity in the Early Years outdoor provision as well as the KS1 and KS2 playgrounds by providing more equipment.
· Extend provision for KS2 pupils by providing some visits to larger sports centres so pupils are able to fully apply their developing skills in more expansive game situations.
