What does the PE and sport premium mean for our school?
At Kings Mill we believe in an all-inclusive approach to the development of sport, physical activity and the promotion of a healthy active lifestyle. We encourage collaboration and partnership working to make best use of the resources that the school has whilst enhancing PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all our pupils.
The school has completed the Youth Sport Trust audit which has honestly assesses our current position with regards to current provision and outcomes in PE and school sport. With the support of our Schools Partnership Development Manager, Angel Rhodes we are able to identify priorities for development.
We are currently developing our Sports Premium plan to further raise levels of participation in PE throughout the school, however in the last year we have seen significant progress having been granted the Gold Award for Sainsbury's School Games accreditation and also named as the Youth Sport Trust ProjectAbility Innovation School for the Humber region for the third year.
We are never satisfied with our progress in giving opportunities for our children to participate and achieve whether that be a local, regional and national level. We aim to support our children and families to develop a genuine love of physical activity and sporting success whilst engendering a lasting interest in sport and activity into adulthood so that all our young people will have the best chance to lead a healthy and active life after they have left our school.
