P.E. and Sport Premium

PE and Sport Premium

At St Clement Danes we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our pupils. We believe that an innovative, varied and competitive PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all.

At St Clement Danes we are using the PE and Sport Premium funding to ensure all pupils receive high quality PE lessons which promote a love of physical activity and improve pupils’ physical fitness.

PE provisions at St Clement Danes that have been supported by the funding:

Recent impact of the funding

100% of pupils surveyed reported that they enjoy PE and knew how to improve in lessons

‘PE makes me feel good and it is my favourite subject’ 

‘I look forward to PE lessons’ 

‘PE is lots of fun’ 

‘In cricket I know that I need to work on my fielding’

Pupils are enjoying a variety of different sports, e.g; tag-rugby, dance, gymnastics, cricket, hockey, netball, athletics

‘I like all the sports we play in PE and I like to play fairly’

90% of pupils surveyed  said that they liked the competitive elements of lessons and going to Level 2 competitions. The remaining 10% said that they sometimes liked being competitive.

‘Being competitive is fun and gives PE a real purpose’ 

Pupils from upper Key Stage 2 participated in dance lessons with expert specialist teachers from Rambert Dance Company.

‘The workshop was really challenging but the teacher really helped me to understand the choreography. The dancers that we saw at Sadler’s Wells made it look easy to dance but it is really quite difficult.’

A survey of staff identified that teachers wanted support with gymnastics so the school now has a gymnastics coach who teaches 2 classes per week. In the session the gymnastics coach is providing training for teachers during these lessons making high quality gymnastics teaching at St Clement Danes sustainable.

Identified pupils had booster swimming sessions, they had rigorous baseline assessment and progress made was measurable. 100% of the pupils with 100% attendance made at least one level of progress
