Sports Premium

The government is providing “A Sport Premium funding” to improve provision of physical education and sport to ensure all children achieve their potential.

Our vision at Doddinghurst Infant School is for the children to develop a love of sport and physical activity. We track the achievement of every child on a regular basis and do all we can to make sure each child achieves their potential. We aim to enthuse and inspire children to fully participate in a broad range of sports activities, developing their skills, knowledge and understanding of the need to have a healthy physical lifestyle. We have a duty to ensure that no group of children are disadvantaged due to their gender, ethnic origin, family income or background.

Our objectives for the Sports Funding are:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE;
  • Supporting and engaging pupils through the golden mile;
  • Improving outdoor learning by investing in new permanent games equipment and a multi usage sports area;
  • Investing in new sports equipment and resources that support teaching and learning of 3 Tees Cricket;
  • Invest in pupil enrichment days off site for OAA in KS1.

Examples of how we will spend this funding are as follows:

  • Securing a safe permanent MULTI USE sports goal unit for PE lessons, school sports activities, and general activity.
  • To develop the outside area in EYFS and restructure Trim Trails.
  • Provide all pupils throughout KS1 with enrichment opportunities in OAA that could also inform teachers future planning.
  • To hire a LSA to organise and arrange resources for the ‘Golden Mile’.
  • Improve the quality of sports equipment when teaching 3 tees cricket.
