P.E. and Sport Premium
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for P.E. and School Sport in order to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. This funding is allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1st September 2013.
The vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium ALL pupils leaving 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
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Here at Greenbank we pride ourselves on offering a broad and in-depth curriculum. One that allows and enables our pupils to grow in confidence, learn the value of respect, work as part of a team, develop their leadership skills and most importantly, make informed, lasting choices about the way they live their life!
Our Curriculum Intent is:
Here at Greenbank we believe PE and sport are essential to a child’s health, well-being and physical and mental development. We pride ourselves on offering a broad and in-depth curriculum, one that allows and enables our pupils to grow in confidence, learn the value of respect, work as part of a team, develop their leadership skills and most importantly, make informed, lasting choices about the way they live their life! We want all of our pupils to leave school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation to encourage them to continue participating in sport and leading healthy, happy and active lives. School Improvement Liverpool have aided the development of a whole school progression document to ensure that the pupils are constantly building upon what they have learnt in previous years with their skill development, vocabulary and performance levels.
Our Curriculum Implementation looks like:
All pupils currently receive weekly PE lessons, with the PE curriculum designed to ensure all requirements are met by the end of each Key Stage. Over the course of the year, blocks of swimming lessons are provided to certain year groups and pupils in the Juniors, with the intention of swimming the required 25 metres by the end of Key Stage 2. Extra opportunities arise and take place throughout the year for pupils to participate in a variety of sports, activities and also units delivered by experienced coaches, for example the LFC Premier League Primary Stars programme, Basketball with Mersey Mavericks and Gymnastics with Future Gym Sports.
We take part in a growing number of competitions in the wider community, allowing the children to compete against other schools and boroughs, helping to develop a healthy competitive nature and attitude.
At Greenbank, we have a variety of extracurricular clubs that all pupils have the opportunity to take part in and develop their interests.
We work alongside LSSP and Liverpool Schools Improvement to allow our school access to courses, sharing good practice and opportunities to support and enrich our PE curriculum.
The Impact of our Curriculum is:
Children are assessed against a bank of statements created with the support of Liverpool School Improvements for each strand of the PE curriculum. The statements have been carefully mapped out for each year group meaning skills are progressive, built on year on year and show clear development. The learning outcomes help to support planning and the understanding of the development of a child through PE.
