PE and Sport Premium
Dosthill Primary School appreciates the contribution of Physical Education to the health and well-being of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.
The school is committed to ensuring that all pupils receive high quality Physical Education each week, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teachers. The Sports Premium funding is allowing us to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a curriculum based on developing children’s physical literacy skills. In-house staff training has provided teachers opportunities to keep abreast of new initiatives and gain knowledge and confidence.
We have termly inter-house competitions across KS1 and KS2 as well as a programme of summer sports days. Teachers and coaches provide a wide range of after school sports clubs, both for team and individual sports. Dosthill Primary School has an unrivalled record in local sports competitions and events in Tamworth and has regularly reached County finals. This could not have been achieved without the support and commitment of parents, which is very much appreciated.
What is the Sports Premium?
The PE and sports premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport; it comes directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Please see the reports below which detail how the funds were spent in 2016-2017 and our plans for 2017-18:
