PE and Sport Premium
Sport & Physical Education (PE)
Mr Lee and Miss Hill lead the Sport Curriculum. We work in partnership with Highfields Secondary School, Matlock and compete alongside and against other primary schools in the Matlock cluster, often with much success! We also hold regular inter-house competitions and use Lea Green Learning & Development Centre for termly outdoor pursuits.
All children in KS1 and KS2 are provided with 2 hours of curriculum PE time a week, plus opportunities to engage in extra-curricular PE and sport. In addition to this, we encourage active playtimes and active lunchtimes to ensure every child is getting their recommended 60 minutes of activity per day.
All pupils in Years 3 and 4 attend weekly swimming lessons. All children meet the governments' minimum requirement for swimming ability by the end of Year 6, and almost all children are very confident swimmers. We have several pupils who swim for local clubs. We take part every year in the local schools' swimming gala with much success.
All year groups from Year 2 to Year 6 are given the opportunity to experience a residential visit encouraging outdoor education even further. Our residential visits include Lea Green Learning & Development Centre, PGL, Whitehall Centre and Bushcraft.
We also employ many experts in the field (peripatetic sports coaches) to assist with our PE lessons - Derbyshire County Cricket Board, a county hockey coach, gymnastics coach and dance specialists.
Lea Primary School and Wessington Primary School have achieved the Primary School Games Gold Award!
Sport Premium Funding
Sports Premium Funding is a Government initiative that aims to enhance and improve the provision of PE and to increase the activity levels of children in primary schools. The amount of funding each school is allocated depends on the number of children in the school. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
