At Harris Academy Philip Lane we believe Physical Education and Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better. As well as the obvious health benefits in PE, our children also learn to develop the qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement. It also supports our strong commitment to arts education through the teaching of dance which is taught to all children.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in delivering high quality PE lessons for everyone, in addition to more opportunities for competitive sport and clubs for all our children.
Here at Philip Lane we invested our Sports Premium money in a full-time Physical Education Specialist Teacher. This means that all our children from Year 1 up to Year 6 will have their curriculum delivered by a PE teacher. This will enable our children to make the greatest progress at a “skill hungry” time in their physical development. Fundamental to their development is the delivery of the skill cornerstones of agility, balance, and co-ordination in Key Stage 1.
In Key Stage 2 these skills are further developed through a varied curriculum of sport specific activity. We believe our Sports Premium investment is the best way to positively impact our children’s physical development and learning. Our investment is the best way to ensure a legacy of high quality PE and sport exists here at Philip Lane.
The investment in a specialist ensures:
1. The HPAPL high quality Physical Education curriculum to ensure pupils are at (with a high proportion above) age-related expectations via:
2. An increase in extra-curricular and competitive sports opportunities via:
3. Healthy Active Lifestyles: Ensuring all our children have access to regular exercise via:
