PE Premium

Home / About us / PE Premium

The Government is spending over £450 million to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.

At Park View Academy, our commitment is to use The Sport Premium to achieve a number of core ambitions. These include:

  • Provide a systemically progressive physical education curriculum.
  • Enhance pupil participation within and outside of the curriculum.
  • Support and deliver continued professional development for all colleagues.
  • Ensure that pupil attitudes to PE and sport are consistently positive.
  • Extend and develop links with outside specialist sport providers (including sports not commonly accessed by our children).
  • Provide every child with the opportunity to compete and represent Park View in an interschool and intra school competition including the Dean Trust Active Challenge.
  • Identify strengths and areas of development within school and use this information as the foundations of future action planning.
  • Provide a wider range of sports to encourage disengaged and / or disadvantaged pupils to participate.
  • Share best practices and current government / sporting organisation initiatives.
  • Support links with other subjects to contribute to pupils’ overall achievement, encompassing spiritual, moral, social and cultural understand

Training and Development

We understand that CPD and increased capacity will lead to improvement in the implementation of physical education and sport at primary school. As such, a proportion of our Sports Premium is used to fund a specialist coach staff which is shared with our sister school Blacklow Brow.  This has enabled teaching staff to develop their own knowledge and teaching in curriculum planning and delivery. Furthermore, this resource has presented increased opportunities for our pupils to be involved in interschool and intra school competitions and clubs. More information here. 

Developing Play Time Games

At Park View, every child has the opportunity to partake in physical activity throughout their break and lunchtimes. Sports Premium has allowed school to purchase a range of equipment to broaden the opportunities children are provided. Through appropriate CPD, play facilitators are coached to support children to thrive and enjoy unstructured sporting opportunities, developing sportsmanship and skills. The purchase of this equipment has seen a significant increase in children partaking in competitive sports throughout break and lunchtimes.

For the second year running Park View have been awarded the Knowsley  Schools Sports Partnership award.
