“Sport has the power to change the world, it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
Peckover Primary School understands and values the importance of physical activity and sport. The children are encouraged to undertake a range of sports and activities both within the Physical Education (PE) curriculum, at playtimes and also in extracurricular activities such as after school clubs and sports tournaments.
The Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport have allocated ring-fenced funding to support the provision of PE and sport in schools. This ring-fenced funding has been confirmed for this year, meaning we are anticipating receiving £1600 plus £10, for every pupil from Reception to Year 6. This money must be spent on 5 indicators:
1. The engagement of all pupils in regular activity.
2. To raise the profile of PE and sport across the school.
3. To increase confidence, knowledge and skills of staff.
4. To provide a broad experience of sports to staff.
5. To increase participation in competitive sport.
Please see our breakdown of both the spending and impact from previous years, including the year 2020-2021.
Peckover School’s PE lead is Miss Pettitt.
