Sport and PE Grant

SPORTS FUNDING

 

The PE Funding has been allocated across the whole school. We aim to use this to:

 

  • To be inclusive
  • To ensure that all children reach their potential
  • To improve the quality of PE provision
  • Increase participation in sport
  • To promote a healthy lifestyle, impacting on progress and attainment
  • To ensure good foundations are laid out in KS1
  • To improve and develop teacher skills

We are developing a 2-year plan which will identify how we will use the funding each year. We have currently used some of the funding to purchase a competition package from Helston Community School and to obtain membership of ARENA, which is based at Callington Community College, which will further support our aims in a number of ways including; with INSET training, cluster activity days, national updates, advice and guidance in all aspects of PE.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Porthleven Primary School has come to have a strong reputation for its sports provision.

As well as 2 hours every week of curriculum time, we offer a comprehensive range of lunchtime and after school clubs. We make sure there is a wide variety of activities and competitions in our clubs, catering for all levels of ability; from Judo to Football and to Multi-Skills.

We have teaching assistants and teachers running clubs and competitions, as well as specialist sports coaches from Acorn Multi Sports and PAFC coaches for our after school clubs. This ensures the quality of our provision is high with many pupils saying how much they enjoy them.

It doesn’t matter whether you are an elite student competing at county level, or just thinking about dipping your toe in the water for the first time. Just come along and try a session with us.

PE Kit

During the warmer months, all members of the school are expected to change for PE or outdoor activities. We ask that all pupils have the correct kit to allow them to participate in the full range of physical activities. During the Autumn and Winter months, the children are asked to have a warm jumper or fleece (not their school jumper), tracksuit trousers and spare socks. Football boots can be worn when playing football or touch rugby.

The recommended kit is:

  • School house T-shirts
  • Shorts
  • Trainers
  • Long hair must be tied back
  • Jewellery must be removed
  • Water bottle
  • Spare socks

Extra curricular Sport

Depending on the time of year, we offer a comprehensive range of school clubs for sport. In KS1 we offer specialist clubs for football as well as multi-skills. We have many KS2 clubs, taught by teachers, teaching assistants, specialist PE coaches or by external providers such as Plymouth Argyle Football Club. During the colder months, KS2 children have the opportunity to play Touch Rugby, Football, High-5, Cross Country in a club, with all of them leading to competitions, matches or tournaments. As the weather warms, KS2 children get the chance to learn how to surf from Global Boarders at Praa Sands Beach.
