Sports Premium

At Whickham Parochial we aim to provide a high-quality physical education curriculum that inspires all of our pupils to succeed and excel in sport and other physically demanding activities.

We aim to provide opportunities for our pupils to become physically active and confident in a way which supports their health, wellbeing and fitness as they move towards making their own choices as young adults and beyond.

In addition we aim to provide opportunities for children to develop their potential and compete in activities that will help them build character and embed values such as teamwork fairness and respect.

All schools are provided with funding for Sport and P.E. called the Sports Premium.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they provide.

We use Sports Premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport
