Sports Premium:

Sport and Physical Education are very important to us at Bransgore and we pride ourselves on the range of activities we offer both within and beyond the curriculum. Physical Education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include athletics, dance, ball games, racquet sports, gymnastics, outdoor and adventurous activities, cycling, swimming and water safety. We encourage active playtimes and our older pupils are trained as play leaders supporting the younger children. We aim to encourage pupils to lead a healthy lifestyle, making positive choices within and beyond school.  We try to encourage healthy snacking and an understanding of the importance of a balanced diet.

P.E promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle whilst at the same time building self-confidence. Through this approach we aim to help pupils make informed and positive choices about physical activity throughout their lives.

Competitive Sport supported by a positive and enabling ethos is encouraged throughout the school. Children are given the opportunity within lessons to compete against each other in a variety of different games. Intra-school competitions take place regularly as well as inter school competitions where the children compete against other schools. We have introduced “house teams” so that we are more easily able to organise pupils for small intra school tournaments during our 'Golden Time' activities.  These events are supported by Ringwood Senior School Sports Leaders.

We try to use upcoming high profile sporting events to fire pupils’ interest in sport. Here at Bransgore we endeavour to motivate and encourage as many of our children to participate in a range of sporting activities as they can beyond the curriculum. We aim to do this by fostering links with local sports clubs, coaches and our feeder secondary schools. We aim to expose pupils to the widest possible range of physical activity so they may find something they excel at or enjoy and which may become a lifelong passion or pastime. We aim to light the spark and then, if necessary, help pupils who show exceptional skills or talent to make contact with clubs and coaches who can help take their development to the highest possible level.

The Sports Premium:

To encourage and support us in bringing about sustainable PE and school sport, the government has allocated each primary school a sum of money to improve sport and physical health. 

Sports Premium 2023/24 - The school is expected to receive £18,940 for the academic year.

Sports Premium 2022/23 - The school received £18,850 for the academic year.

Sports Premium 2021/22 - The school received £18,860 for the academic year.

Sports Premium 2020/21 - The school received £18,950 for the academic year.

Our aim is that:

P.E teaching/ provision will be outstanding and the staff will be confident and able to sustain improvements beyond the years of sports premium funding.

We will do this by focusing on the DFE’s 5 indicators for improvement in PE and school sport which are:

  • Increase engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport.
