Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant for 2020-2021 and how we allocated the funding, this includes the impact we feel it has on pupils, staff and parents. We pride ourselves on spending our money very effectively and know that P.E, Sport and Health is at the forefront of all we do at Coppull Parish. Despite the lockdown last year and partial school closures we still ensured that our pupils were active and tried to promote a healthy lifestyle whether at home or at school , through our own teachers and P.E Leader initiatives, and by our P.E Lead liaising with local schools, local P.E advisors and the CSSP and Lancashire Games to promote weekly activities and competitions from home.
Previously to the last two years we maintained the Gold School Games Mark 4 years running, with 18-19 being the most recent one,. Although the Schools game mark took a different format last year and the year before, we were awarded a certificate for our continued participation in sporting competition for 2020-2021 and an award for digital participation the previous year.
We are very pleased with the recognition for all of our hard work with P.E and Physical activity in our most recent Ofsted Report (December 2016) :
‘Your governors also ensure that sports funding has been spent to increase the
sporting provision within school. As a result, more pupils take part in a wide
range of sports and physical activities, for example, dodgeball, Zumba and ballet.
Parents and pupils value these opportunities.’
30 ACTIVE MINUTES
At Coppull Parish we fully embrace the Chief Medical Officers recommendation of including 30 active minutes in our daily timetable (in addition to two formal PE lessons per week).
KS2 participate in daily physical activity for 15 minutes a day after lunchtime, and EYFS/KS1 do this during their afternoon break at 2.30. This is in addition to all KS1 and KS2 classes completing three shorter slots of 5-minute challenges throughout the day as appropriate. Children in EYFS and Y1 have lots of opportunity to be active through our outdoor provision. We also promote physical activity and movement during break-times, lunchtimes.
