Sports Premium Grant

Our key summary of Physical activity using Sports Premium funding

At Oak Hill First school we want all our children to enjoy healthy and fulfilling lives. We want all our children to enjoy participating in physical activities and understand its benefits.

The Sports Premium grant is utilised in a range of ways at Oak Hill First School in order to make sustainable improvements to the quality of provision for PE and Sport.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 PE and Sport Premium Key Outcome Indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport. At Oak Hill School we aim to provide the children with sporting activities that develop personal fitness, co-operate and competitive skills, as well as the development and progression of skills such as aiming, kicking, throwing and catching.

To fulfil this expectation we:

  • Employ qualified and specialised sports coaches to enhance learning opportunities across PE.
  • Build the capacity of teaching staff to deliver high quality PE sessions to develop skills and healthy lifestyles.
  • Develop the range of extra-curricular, after school, before school and lunch time clubs around the school day including multi sports, dance clubs and gymnastics.
  • Ensure play leaders plan a range of physical activities for the children to enjoy at lunch times.
  • Include active learning opportunities across our curriculum for children to enjoy active and healthy activities through our Essentials approach to learning.
  • Organise annual sports morning for all phases to celebrate and enjoy participation in physical activities. KS1 and KS2 with a competitive elements where children participate in coloured teams.
