Sports and PE Funding
Learning Together, Success Forever
Physical Education develops a child’s knowledge, skill and understanding, enabling them to perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. Our intent at Lakeside is to provide children with a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle, so that they can make informed choices about physical activities throughout their lives. Sports Premium is used to fund additional and sustainable improvements; it is reviewed continuously to offer the best opportunities to children at Lakeside. We strive to provide children with a vast range of sporting opportunities through: lessons, after school clubs and intra and inter-school competitions. At Lakeside, we endeavour to find sports inclusive to all and create a love of physical education for life.
At Lakeside, we are proud of our successes in sport. Entering a range of events across Tamworth and Staffordshire, gives children opportunities to reach their full potential. As well as this, through providing swimming lessons to Year 3 and Year 4, we compete in the Tamworth Swimming Gala annually. We are committed to providing competitive events for children to take part in; however, we fully understand that this is not what all children desire. At Lakeside, we participate in and run a range of non-competitive events with rewards for all. Finding a sport or activity children love is our aspiration at Lakeside. By doing this, it will make children ready for a physically active lifestyle when they come to leave whilst encouraging and teaching respect for others within in a safe environment.
All of the above is in addition to the children accessing their indoor and outdoor PE lessons throughout the year.
