Sport and PE

At Littleport Community Primary School there are plenty of opportunities for pupils to try their hand at a range of sporting activities such as Tag Rugby, Rounders, Netball, Football, Athletics, Hockey, Dance and Gymnastics, to name but a few. Swimming lessons for Years 4 to 6 take place at the local Paradise Pool.

 

Littleport Community Primary School is affiliated to the Witchford Schools' Sports Partnership which runs a number of inter-school sports competitions during the course of the academic year. Our teams always enjoy the experience of competitive matches against pupils from other local schools, as well as the fresh air and exercise. Our after school sports clubs provide further opportunities for children to develop skills.

Sports Premium Funding.

 

Following Team GBs success at the London 2012 Olympics, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport.  This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.  The funding is for the period 1 September 2013 – 31 August 2014 & September 2014 – August 2015.  This funding is ring fenced to be used for sport specific areas to make an impact in Physical Education and Sport in schools.

 

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

 

At Littleport Community Primary School we are using the funding for:

 

  • Being part of the Witchford Schools’ Partnership and for the help of a Schools Sports Co-ordinator to organise festivals between other schools in the area and within school. It also includes the provision of Bikeability for children in Year 6.
  • Entry to competitions run by the Witchford Schools’ Partnership.
  • Subscription to 5-a-day TV a fun fitness resource for primary schools.
  • P.E. equipment to improve the resourcing of Physical Education lessons within school and for after school clubs.
  • A Dance Scheme of work, including planning and music, to support teachers planning and the teaching of Dance across the school.
  • Professional Development for staff to improve staff skills in the teaching of Physical Education. This will impact on children’s skills and progress in Physical Education improving, as well as the quality of teaching.
  • In school staff training in gymnastics and dance.
  • Swimming Top-Up lessons for Year 6 children who can’t swim 25 meters.
  • Multiskills coach for children in Years 1 to 4
