Harrowbarrow School Sports Provision

Harrowbarrow’s PE mission statement

At Harrowbarrow school we strongly believe that all children should have access to an engaging, safe and stimulating PE curriculum, that will help pupils deepen their understanding in a sequential way to motivate them to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.Our teachers strive to equip all children with the necessary skills, knowledge and range of physical experiences whilst encouraging healthy competition, teamwork and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

PE and Sports Funding 2020-2021

At Harrowbarrow School we continue to use the Primary school sports premium money to ensure all the children experience high quality and a variety of different sports. Physical Education can be used across the curriculum to enhance all learning experiences in all areas of learning. It is important not only for the children’s physical health but also their mental health.

Key Indicators 2020 – 2021

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • The profile of PE and sport is 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

Due to Covid-19 and lockdown some of our plans this year have been proponed and therefore carried forward to 2021-2022.

Photos of our developments this year to improve the children’s quality of PE and outdoor learning will be uploaded.

Due to Covid-19 and lockdown in March 2020 the school has been unable to deliver all that was planned for 2019 – 2020.  Schools have been permitted to carry forward any funds not spent during 2019 – 2020 to 2020 – 2021.  However, this must be spent by the end of March 2021.  We are currently putting plans in place to spend the unused funds and our PE Co-ordinator Emma Kalarus is putting together the Action Plan for 2020 – 2021.

The village hall which we normally use for PE and Dance activities over the winter months is still closed and, as the school does not have a hall, all PE sessions are currently taking place outside.  We are therefore providing every child within the school with jogging pants and a sweatshirt to enable all children to fully participate in PE, games and outdoor activities.

Plans have also been drawn up for an exciting overhaul of the Class 2 outdoor area.

The link below shows how this funding was used during 2019 – 2020.

PE & Sports Grant Expenditure 2019 – 2020

PE and Sports Funding 2018 – 2019

The Primary school sports premium money is used to support and improve the quality of PE, school sports and active learning within primary schools.

Key Indicators – The department of education offers the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport you offer within your school environment. The sports premium money needs to be used to develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that your school already offers or build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. Here are the key indicators that they wish to develop further:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is 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

Here are some of the developments we have made at Harrowbarrow school in 2018-2019 to help support and improvement the quality of PE at our school.

We have added playground markings to encourage more physically activity during break times. These are also linked to the national curriculum and can be used during numeracy lessons to encourage active numeracy learning.
