My vision for P.E. and Games, Friar's Grove Primary School
The Physical Education & School Sport Premium is funding allocated by the government over the next 2 years purely to improve the quality of physical education and sport for all children. This is an exciting opportunity for us at Friars Grove and it has been decided to use the money to employ me as newly appointed Physical Education co-ordinator, in order to ensure that P.E. and games provision is consistent across the year groups, appropriate to a wide range of abilities, and extends to encourage all to become more active both within the curriculum and in extra-curricular activities.
At Friars Grove we truly believe that all young people are entitled to benefit from a high quality physical education and there is significant evidence to show that this supports other learning right across the curriculum. I am particularly passionate about the part it can play in school life and have seen on numerous occasions how it positively contributes to healthy and active lifestyles and emotional well-being, reduces poor behaviour, increases attendance and develops key skills such as leadership, confidence and social skills. High quality physical education and all the additional benefits can be a great cause of celebration.
With this in mind, I outline below some of the key aspects I want to address in this new role.
