Sports & PE at Brompton
School Sports Premium
The Government announced last year a renewed package of funding for Physical Education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million in each of the next two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
Take a look at the School Sports Premium Fund Action Plan to see how we are using our funding to enhance PE and School Sport at Brompton Community Primary School.
Our Vision for PE and School Sport
Our high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. We provide opportunities to compete in sport and other activities which build character and help embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- are physically active for sustained periods of tim
- engage in competitive sports and activities
- lead healthy, active lives.
PE at Brompton
PE and School Sport is integral to life at Brompton Community Primary School. We are passionate about promoting healthy, active lifestyles, enjoyment, team building and a competitive spirit for every child.
All children currently take part in 2 hours of High Quality PE and School Sport every week. The PE curriculum is broad and balanced with Fundamental skills at its core; agility, balance and co-ordiantion. The development of these skills begins in Foundation Stage and continues through Key Stage 1 and 2 across all areas of PE; gymnastics, dance, games, swimming and outdoor adventurous activities.
At Brompton Community Primary School we supplement the curriculum with a range of After School Clubs to enhance the children’s learning and enjoyment.
As a school we are part of the ‘White Horse’ League and enter sporting competitions on a regular basis.
