Brownsover Community School – Sports Premium Funding
At Brownsover Community School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the pupils. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our pupils. Physical Education and sport clearly contribute to the holistic development of young people and through participation in sport and physical education, the pupils learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others. There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on pupil’s physical health, growth and development. Furthermore, sport also provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.
What is the Sports Premium?
In April 2013, the government announced new funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding is allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils. The reports below outline how this has been spent here at Brownsover Community School.
Our main priority this year is to increase specialist sports coaching and provision along with providing structured sporting activities and coaching at lunchtimes. Our spending plans are detailed below.
