Sports Premium

Sports Premium

 

We believe that children need to be active and so PE and Sports is a very valued curriculum area at Loxwood.  We have just retained our Sainsbury Platinum Sports Award, which few primary schools in the area hold.  We are very proud of the commitment we make to sports and the activities our children get to take part in.

Since 2013, all schools have been allocated a Sports Premium. At Loxwood Primary School, we have used this funding to continue the development of sport in the following ways:

We employ a specialist PE coach (Mr Green) to work in school for one day a week. This gives all our teachers an opportunity to further develop their own knowledge of teaching in PE whilst ensuring all children are experiencing high quality coaching in a wide range of sports. Mr Green continues to work alongside Miss Price, coordinating and hosting inter-house matches within school. These fixtures have led to increased opportunities for all children to participate in competitive sports at varying levels.

We use part of the funding to further develop links with the Weald Family Partnership, which provides staff training and enables a wide range of children to represent the school at various fixtures throughout the year.

Some money has been used to update equipment and to purchase playground equipment to keep the children active at play times.
