A Little School With Big Ideas
At Moggerhanger Primary School, we recognise the importance of delivering a rich and engaging curriculum. A curriculum which promotes the development of both the health and wellbeing of the children within our care. As such, teachers plan and teach a variety of engaging lessons which meet the needs of both the Primary National Curriculum (2013) and Early Years Foundations Stage documentation.
Within the last year the Government has pledged over £450 million on improving Physical Education (PE). Schools are allocated the funding by calculating the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6, and those aged 5 in Reception, using the school’s census information from the previous academic year. Whilst there are many ways to spend our allocation funding, Moggerhanger Primary School will be spending the money to support, not just the teaching and learning of our children today, but also create a sporting legacy.
We use Sports Premium to meet 5 key indictors listed below:
• Promoting healthy lifestyles (Indicator 1)
• Raising the profile of PE across the school (Indicator 2)
• Increasing the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE and sport (Indicator 3)
• Offering an ever-widening range of sports and activities to pupils (Indicator 4)
• Increased participation in competitive sport (Indicator 5) Whilst the sports premium money is aiding our school in developing the opportunities for our learning community, Moggerhanger Primary School is, and always has been committed to sport.
This is reflected in our current practice across the school. We currently participate actively with our School Games Team and network with schools across our area, to encourage competition within a range of sports. Furthermore, our PE planning demonstrates an emerging commitment to competitions within our own community.
