PE at Cedars Park Primary School is an important part of school life. The aim is to encourage pupils to have a life-long interest and enjoyment of physical activity. All pupils have at least two hours of high quality PE timetabled where they follow the new National Curriculum. Pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1 pupils develop fundamental skills looking specifically at movement, agility, balance, coordination, individually and with others. Pupils in Key Stage 2 build on their work in Key Stage 1, improving their skills and understanding in a variety of areas of activity including games, athletics, gymnastics, dance, outdoor activities and swimming. Taking part in competitive games is also a key part of the Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 curriculum.
Pupils are also given the chance to take part in a range of extra-curricular PE activities at lunchtimes and after school throughout the academic year. There are a number of opportunities to take part in local intra school fixtures, festivals and competitions. The school works closely with the Stowmarket School Games Organiser.
Through our engaging and enjoyable PE provision, we want our pupils to become physically active for continued periods of time, take part in competitive sports and activities, lead healthy, active lives and develop competence in a broad range of physical activities.
PE Premium Funding from 2020 to 2021
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary- aged pupils, in the 2020 to 2021 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Allocations for the academic year 2020 to 2021 are calculated using the number of pupils in year 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2019 census, as follows:
- schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil
- schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1,000 per pupil
As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Department for Education has taken steps to relax the ring-fencing arrangements for the PE and sport premium in the 2019 to 2020 academic year to allow any unspent grant to be carried forward into the next academic year (2020 to 2021).
According to guidance from the Dfe, funding can be used to:
