PE and sport premium for primary schools

This essential part of the curriculum aims to help pupils to perform with increasing skill in all athletic, dance, games, swimming and outdoor and adventurous activities undertaken. We are an active member of the Redcar and Eston School Sports Partnership so children regularly have the opportunity to represent the school in a variety of sports and earn points for the school in the competition league.

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum  to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. At Wheatlands this will mean around £18,000 for the 2018/2019 year. 

All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Wheatlands Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children. 

Here's what is planned through the Sports Partnership this half term:

The Go Run For Fun fun run for Years 4, 5 and 6

Year 4 Rugby Megafest 

Year 5/ 6 tag rugby competition

Reception Funky Monkey Festival

Cross Country competition for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
