At Lee on the Solent Junior School we recognise the value of PE to a child’s overall development and aim to foster a lifelong love of sport and physical exercise. Through a variety of sports and activities we aim to develop many key skills including agility, balance, coordination and teamwork. We promote the opportunity for all children to experience success and failure through competition but above all we aim to encourage a healthy body and mind.
Funding from central Government is allocated to all schools with primary aged children to improve the quality of Sport and PE provision for all their pupils, as well as having the freedom to choose how they do this.
We are thrilled to be able to use this funding to inspire all our children, regardless of ability, and to provide a lasting, sustainable and positive effect on PE and Sport within school and our community.
We strongly believe in the health, social and emotional benefits of high quality Sport and PE for all our children and believe that the enhanced provision and enriched programme that the Sports Premium funding is helping us to provide will ensure maximum impact on learning both in and beyond the school environment.
Sports Premium has been used to employ a specialist PE lead across the cluster of schools. The PE lead works alongside the school's subject leader to support improvements to the quality of teaching in PE. They also provide support in organising interschool competitions.
The school also uses part of its allocation to provide specialist coaching in games lessons. The coaches work alongside teaching staff to support their professional development and understanding.
