Our School Vision

At Reepham Primary our aim is to have a fully inclusive curriculum, including PE. We want to provide our children with the highest quality PE teaching and ensure that all children participate fully and enjoy each lesson. We aim to improve the health and wellbeing of our children, providing them with a minimum of 2 hours quality PE  every week. We support the development of school  sport  through our partnership work, participation in leagues and tournaments and after school provision.

Following a parent questionnaire and full external audit of PE in January 2014 our current development priorities include;

  • review our use of Pupil Premium and ensure that we continue to plan for whole school development
  • improve after school club provision using high quality coaches
  • create a link governor for PE and Sport 
  • continue to obtain feedback from parents and children
  • improve health and wellbeing through partnership with Change for Life
  • develop skills and confidence within the staff team
  • promote intra school competition through the introduction of house teams
  • continue to develop our use of technology 
  • link PE development closely with our school improvement work, including support for children in receipt of Pupil Premium
  • Keep up to date with developments including the introduction of the new curriculum in September 2014
  • ensure that we are in the best possible position to sustain development of PE into the future

You can find information about School Sports Premium on GOV.UK, however the following information is taken from the website;

“PE and sport premium for primary schools

We are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. We will allocate this extra funding directly to primary headteachers.

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools”
