Purpose of the PE and Sports Premium
After The London Olympics and Paralympics Games in 2010, the Government was determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the games where they wanted to continue to inspire the nation to enjoy sports. Therefore the Government announced that a new funding of £150 million was available to schools for physical education and sport. This funding is to be used to improve the quality of PE and sport provision.
How Bevington uses its PE and Sports Premium
For the academic year 2016/2017 Bevington Primary School was allocated £9,295 through the PE and Sport Premium. This funding has had a far reaching impact for all pupils at Bevington Primary School with the aim of each child adopting and leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Here at Bevington we are very proud of our achievements in Sport and Physical Education. Over the past two academic years we have been awarded The Healthy Schools Bronze and Silver Award, awarded Silver School Games Kitemark, awarded Youth Sport Trust Silver Quality Mark and gained TFL Accreditation and Travel Plan Silver Award. We are currently working hard to achieve our Healhty Schools Gold Award and the new EYFS Healthy Schools Award. An award we received during the 2015/2016 academic year that we are extremely proud about is the RBKC & TFL ‘School of the Year for promoting active travel to all our pupils and a significant reduction in the amount of pupils who travel to school by car.
During the 2016/2017 academic year PE and Sport at Bevington has continued to grow from strength to strength. The PE staff have continued to deliver a wide ranging PE Curriculum and have built new links with community sports clubs and organisations that are offering further opportunities to participate in sport both inside and outside the curriculum for all pupils at Bevington.
