Sports Premium Overview

 

PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of Little London Community Primary School and at least two hour-long sessions per week are dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people and through participation in sport and physical education, young people 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 children’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.

The Government recently that they are doubling the allocation of money to all primary schools to spend on PE in order to improve physical education. This has come as part of the Child Obesity Plan whereby schools must play an active part of tackling problems of early obesity.

We believe that healthy and active lifestyles are crucial to a child’s happiness and after researching how best to spend this money and after asking staff their opinions too to ensure that it has a long-lasting impact, we have decided how best to spend our funding. You can read our action plan for the year 2017-18 below.

Physical activity and sport not only help tackle childhood obesity, but they can also have a encouraging impact on pupils’ behaviour, attendance, concentration and attainment, helping children to reach their full potential, which is one of our goals here at Little London in order to grow to become a happy, successful adult.
