PE and sport premium allocation for academic year 2020 to 2021, £16,283.

Purpose of the Premium

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2020 to 2021 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Objective

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and Sport in Baytree Schools against 5 Key Indicators:

  • The engagement of ALL pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy, active lifestyles
  • The profile of PE and Sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive Sport

At Baytree the school motto is ‘Making the Most of Every Day’. This vision ensures that all staff at school actively promote and encourage sporting activities for ALL pupils. Great time and care is placed on ensuring that pupils’ individual needs are met and this personalisation leads to greater impact as it is proactive, purposeful and relevant to the individual pupils’ needs.
