About the PE and sport premium
Schools have central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true at Marnel where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity is established.
Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. PE and sport premium grant funding is used by Marnel towards these aims.
At Marnel, we recognise the important contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our pupils. We also believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on concentration, attitude and academic achievement for all our children.
How we use the PE and sport premium
Marnel uses the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, sport and physical activity we provide.
Making sustainable improvements is considered as a priority. This is often achieved through developing and investing in the knowledge and skills of the teaching staff and other school staff who may have involvement in supporting a lasting change to the school’s approach to physical activity, curriculum PE or provision of school sport.
We use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- Broader experience of a range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
