Our Vision for Physical Development at Guardian Angels' RCPS
It is our aim to provide the opportunity for our children to safely experience a range of sporting activities for their fun and enjoyment. Through carefully planned PD and sports activities we aim to ensure that all children are happy and enjoy PD, thus raising participation levels both in and out of school and therefore in turn, promoting healthy lifestyles.
We strive to provide high quality PD and sports teaching in both curriculum and after school clubs.
We aim to ensure that within their own level of ability all children can achieve and experience success, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential.
We value the benefits of PD and sport to build children’s self-confidence, esteem and self-worth which is character building and essential for our pupil’s development.
We aim to provide opportunities for all children to experience competition at various levels both individually and as part of a team by means of in and out of school competitions. This will hopefully inspire children to participate fully and benefit from all aspects of sport physically, emotionally and socially.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding for academic years 2013/2014, 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.
Purpose of the Funding
The School Sport Premium money is ring fenced and can only be spent on improving and enhancing Physical Development and sport provision in school.
How will we spend our allocation
PD and Sport is important and valued at Guardian Angels' RCPS and this funding will help us to enhance and sustain current and future progression. It is of the upmost importance to us that all children benefit from this sports funding, regardless of sporting ability.
To ensure each after school club is open to both genders and accessible to both SEND and to pupil premium.
Learning to swim is fun, provides health benefits and could save a child's life-it is an essential life skill.
In 2017-2018, 90.3% of our Year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m, using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
