Sport at Churchfields

Sports Premium Funding 2018-2019

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.  We help children to learn about themselves, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, self-expression and concepts such as fair play and respect.  We support all the children to achieve their sporting best in school and their personal best in life.  Teaching staff receive regular training on an annual basis to develop their expertise in teaching physical education.  The delivery of teaching is outstanding.  For this reason 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.

With regards to 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 receive now.  By up-skilling our teachers, we are investing in our staff, leading to an increase in the delivery of our PE curriculum not just this year, but in years to come.
