PE and Sport Premium 2017 - 2018

The PE and Sport Premium is a government funded initiative designed to improve the quality of PE and sports activities in primary schools.

Vale School's allocation for  2017/18 is £3419.

Vale School is a Project Ability school and we acknowledge the impact that a high quality physical education and school experience has on young people’s physical, social and cognitive development. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities in sport have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude, behaviour and academic achievement of all our students.

The PE and Sports Premium will contribute to continuing, developing and extending our provision by 

- Hiring qualified PE and dance specialists to work alongside and upskill teachers/support staff when teaching PE
- Developing partnership work with local sports clubs and sport providers, particularly Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, Middlesex County Cricket Club, Step Into Dance and Panathlon Challenge
- Providing places for pupils on after school and holiday sport clubs and residential visits
- Developing partnership work with local schools to create higher quality provision
- Paying for professional development opportunities for staff and volunteers in PE/sport
- Providing cover to release teachers/support staff for professional development in PE/sport
- Developing and running sport competitions and increasing participation in the school games
- Developing the skills of young leaders to support primary aged pupils.
