Sports Premium Funding at Ivy Lane Primary School

At Ivy Lane School we have always prided ourselves on the wide range of high quality activities that we provide to keep our children active and healthy. We promote a positive learning atmosphere so that all children participate in and enjoy PE and a more healthy life-style whilst maintaining a healthy approach to competition. We realise its potential for the promotion of ‘Learning for life’ skills that we believe can make a positive difference to the children’s lives.

Some of the Sports Premium funding has been targetted on professional development and further training for teaching staff in areas of the PE curriculum in which they are less confident . Each Class teacher will get the opportunity to develop their skills and reflect upon their own practice over a 6 – 8 week programme using modelled, shared and observed teaching approaches.
