At Thomas Walling, we believe a high quality PE curriculum should be an integral part of the whole school curriculum. Our PE curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop the fundamental skills and competence to excel in a wide range of physical activities by providing a broad & balanced curriculum with opportunities for all to be enjoyed. A high quality physical education curriculum can inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. We are improving our programme of intra and inter school competitions which will provide opportunities for pupils to participate in competitive sports and activities both in and beyond the curriculum. Our mission is to improve and increase the quality and quantity of high quality PE for pupils, to show how PE can enhance pupils’ attainment and achievement, to create pathways for them to continue to be active beyond school and embed the values of our school which are to be enthusiastic, honest, resilient and have high aspirations. We will be developing our links to outside agencies and clubs which will help to generate positive interaction in the community.
From September 2013 the government allocated funding directly to primary schools to support the provision of quality PE/sport. Each school will receive £8, 000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. At Thomas Walling Primary Academy it will mean around £9,500 a year. It is important that we use this money wisely ensuring we get best value and maximum impact for our children.
The PE premium at Thomas Walling Primary Academy will be used to fund...
