At Bush Hill Park Primary School, we appreciate the contribution of Physical Education to the health and well being of our children.
We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude, achievement and most importantly, enjoyment.
We are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well trained and enthusiastic teachers.
In addition to the quality PE provided by the teaching staff, the sports provision is enhanced by our engagement and participation in a wide range of sporting activities run by the Local Authority and local clubs. These external sporting activities and events enable both our more able and less able pupils to experience teamwork, a chance to hone skills and get a taste of competition that inter-school tournaments provide.
At Bush Hill Park Primary School, Sports Coaches, Teachers and Teaching Assistants provide a wide range of sports clubs, both for team and individual sports. These clubs take place during the lunch break and at the end of the day. Our popular breakfast club also provides pupils opportunity to engage in sporting activity. We are committed to expanding our provision to allow greater access to either free or low cost clubs.
What is the Sports Premium?
Since 2013 the government has provided additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools in England. The funding has been jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and its’ purpose is to allow primary schools to improve the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
