Sports and PE develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding so that they can participate with increasing confidence in a range of competitive and non-competitive physical activities.
PE promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills. At Blenheim Primary we acknowledge the Childhood Obesity Strategy and are committed to continuing our work with partners, promoting positive attitudes and healthy lifestyle choices. Therefore, we enable our children to make informed choices about the physical activities that are needed throughout their lives.
We aim to provide quality, physical activity opportunities both within and outside curriculum time which consider the needs and interests of all pupils; promote positive attitudes towards participation in physical activity; enable pupils to develop a full range of basic movement skills; increase pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the importance of physical activity; provide safe and stimulating areas in which children can play and be active.

About Primary PE & Sports Premium
All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
The PE and sport premium can help primary schools to achieve this aim, providing primary schools with £320m of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils.
