P.E Funding 2016 -17

At Arnold View we want to inspire young people to participate in and enjoy physical activity. It is our aim to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities.

Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives. As a member of both the GPSSA and GPSFA, the school prides itself on providing the very best for its pupils by participating in inter school competitions.

The standard of delivery has been supported by PE funding received from the government: The government will continue to provide sports funding to schools during the next academic year to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding has now been confirmed to continue until 2020 and the amount received by schools will double from September 2017 enabling us to maintain this level of sports provision going forward.

This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be allocated to ALL primary schools. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport. To find out more about this funding please follow this link

Arnold View uses it’s funding to;

  • ensure high quality of PE is taught to our children.
  • ensure high quality equipment is used to enhance learning,
  • provide opportunities for children to try new sports,
  • provide opportunities for children to take part in sporting competitions.

A review of P.E at the beginning of the year showed:

  • Young leaders are used for key stage 1 breaks times and are encouraged to showcase lots of different sports adding a competitive element to it. Young leaders report back to staff to award dojos for effort, participation and competition of challenges.
  • All weather time is utilised more to give as many chances to year groups and classes to further develop P.E sessions outdoors, and also at lunch and break times.
  • The school has been  involved in new competitions from the previous year such as: tennis, tag rugby, Boccia and basketball.
  • Opportunities for staff CPD ​were provided throughout the year. Both TA’s and teachers observed a specialist outside provider teaching Boccia and staff in LKS2 received training from a specialist provider for urban hockey session.
  • A variety of local provider’s have been used and good links are now established with the Ice Arena and local sports clubs.
  • Before and after school clubs are provided across the entire school and aim to involving as many children as possible – 60% of children engaged in after school school sports last year, compared to 46% the previous year. 72% were involved in all extra-curricular activities last year. This will continue to be a priority focus for the coming year.
  • Competitions attended for boys and girls included: Football, Basketball, Year 4 Tennis, Boys Cricket, Year 3/4 Athletics and Year 5 / 6 Athletics.
