Effect on participation and attainment

We track participation in all extra-curricular activities which enables us to identify children who are making active and healthy choices. By analysing this data at regular intervals throughout the year we are able to target children who are not making active choices, open up a dialogue with them about the benefits of sport and activity and find ways to engage them in active and healthy choices.

Ensuring Sustainable Improvement

A large proportion of our Sport Premium spend has been dedicated to improving the provision for outdoor learning and activity along with staff CPD, ensuring that the benefits from the funding carry through into subsequent years. Encouraging healthy, active lifestyles is a vital part of our role as teachers and educators. It is not solely a PE and Sport issue, but one that filters through all aspects of school life at Preston Grange Primary. Every member of staff is aware of the benefits and impact that a healthy and active lifestyle can give. We have a robust tracking system in place to monitor children’s activity levels. Data is shared with all staff ensuring a collective responsibility for promoting healthy and active lifestyles. We are then able to identify, target and provide opportunities for children who are not making active choices independently.

 

School Games Mark PLATINUM 

The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark. We are thrilled to announce that following a successful application, we have been awarded PLATINUM School Games Mark.

The award measures all aspects of Sport and PE within school, including our provision of extra-curricular activities through after school clubs, the opportunities we provide for students to develop leadership skills, the way we promote sport and competition to parents and the local community and the opportunities we provide our students to compete at inter-school competitions.
