WELCOME TO THE MOUNT CARMEL PE PAGE
It is our aim at Mount Carmel to provide the opportunity for our children to safely experience a range of sporting activities for their fun and enjoyment. Through carefully planned PE and sports activities we aim to ensure that all children are happy and enjoy PE, thus raising participation levels both in and out of school and therefore in turn, promoting healthy lifestyles. We strive to provide high quality PE and sports teaching in both curriculum and extra-curricular clubs. We aim to ensure that within their own level of ability all children can achieve and experience success, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential.
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for their children. Each school will receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil each year.
The School Sport Premium money is ring fenced and can only be spent on Physical Education and sport provision in school. Schools will be expected to spend the funding on improving and enhancing their provision of physical education and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how to do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- new or additional change4life clubs
- paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport
- running sport competitions, or increasing participation in school games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/Sport
Ofsted have provided schools with the following advice in September 2013:
PE and Sport is important and valued at Mount Carmel and this funding will help us to enhance and sustain current and future progression. It is of the upmost importance to us that all children benefit from this sports funding, regardless of sporting ability.
