Sport at Churchfields
Sports Premium Funding 2022-23
Churchfields Infants’ School has a firm belief that high quality physical education contributes to a range of outcomes for the children. Not only does it equip them with physical literacy while supporting their physical development, movement skills and body confidence, but it also contributes to their physical, mental and emotional health and well-being. We offer a high quality PE programme taught by class teachers. From our Reception year, all children participate in three weekly gymnastic, games and dance lessons, developing skills, competencies and confidence which directly provide enhanced access to learning. Children in Nursery are provided with high quality opportunities for physical development via a range of equipment. At Churchfields Infants’ School we help children to learn about themselves, the crucial role of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play, competition and respect. We support all of the children to achieve their sporting best in school and their personal best in life. Teaching staff receive regular training in Gymnastics, Games and Dance on an annual basis to develop their expertise in teaching physical education. The delivery of teaching is outstanding. Due to this, in the past we have used our funding as ‘legacy’ spending to provide all weather surfaces and additional play equipment for our children to use throughout the day. Recently, we have begun to provide opportunities for children to partake in sporting activities outside of the school day through a range of sporting clubs.
Concerning sustainability of our spending, the investment into our playground and our sports equipment will ensure that all future pupils will have the same opportunities as our current cohort now receive. We firmly believe that ensuring our teachers are highly skilled is one of the most effective ways to lead to an increase in the delivery of our PE curriculum not just this year, but in years to come.
