PE and Sports Premium

All primary schools currently receive additional funding to promote and enhance provision in PE and sport activities.

In 2014-15 Bleasdale Church of England Primary was allocated £6,500.

This funding was used in the following ways:

  • to provide professional coaches to deliver high quality PE to all our children
  • to develop teachers' skills by providing opportunities to work with sports coaches
  • to subscribe to a collaboration of several small schools with Garstang Community Academy to enable:
    •  our key stage 2 children to receive coaching and the opportunity to compete in a wide range of sports  (including football, girls' football, Hi-5 netball, basketball, short tennis, table tennis, rounders, athletics and tag rugby)
    •  our staff to work in a variety of specialist sports environments and develop their own coaching and refereeing skills by working with sports specialists
  • to enable us to continue to provide the opportunity for all our children to swim regularly

The impact of this was:

  • improved physical skills which enhance fitness
  • enhanced self-esteem and social skills by providing the opportunity for children to interact with wider peer groups at collaborative sporting events
  • children experienced a considerably wider range of sporting activities in specialist venues than would otherwise have been possible
  • staff skills and motivation were enhanced because of the variety of opportunities offered and experienced through membership of the partnership

In 2015-16 we anticipate an allocation of £6,000
