Primary School PE and Sport Funding
In 2017 – 2018, the ‘Sugar Tax’ has meant that we have an increased funding allocation to further improve the delivery of PE and increase the activity levels of children in the school. The 2017 – 2018 documentation is in the process of being created using the new DfE forms and will be available shortly. however, in the meantime, the sorts of things we are doing include:
- Use the expertise of specialist PE practitioners to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE.
- Provide quality-assured professional training for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE and sport.
- Continue to have links with PE teachers in local secondary schools to help teachers improve their PE and sport provision in school.
- Buy specialist PE and Sport equipment to support and promote regular intra-school competitions and introduce new playground games at lunch time.
- Provide training for, and employ, a play leader to develop playground games at lunchtimes.
- To establish regular, intra-school sports competitions for KS1 and KS2.
- Ensure that 40% of pupils access competitive inter-school sport.
- Ensure that all pupils can swim at least 25m by the end of KS2.
- School to participate in events organised for the Eckington cluster of primary schools.
- Introduce a Change For Life group as a before school club.
- Introduce new clubs and new aspects to existing clubs to better facilitate activities
- Looking at ways of integrating PE into classrooms through the use of technology
- Developing the field areas to be ‘more than just a green space’
- Developing the trim-trail areas to include outdoor gym equipment
- Investing in training for existing staff to deliver quality experiences during play and lunch.

Sainsbury’s School Games Mark
We are really happy to have been awarded the silver Sainsbury’s School Games Mark. The Sainsbury’s School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
In 2013/2014 we gained our Silver School Games status, retaining the Silver status in 2014-2015 and we are now keen to achieve Gold in 2016.

30 Minutes Daily Activity
At Renishaw Primary School, we are committed to the Governments’ recommendation for every child to have 30 minutes daily activity for every child on top of the their normal PE allocation. We do this by having 30 minutes directed exercise during the lunchtime period, where children of all ages take part in a range of activities which are led by our midday staff.
