The premium was introduced to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2019 to 2020 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Sport is important because it encourages children to be active, lead a healthy lifestyle, make friends and, of course, have fun. But quality school sport has benefits that spread right across the curriculum and beyond - it develops confidence and a sense of achievement, it teaches young people how to rise to a challenge, and nurtures the character and skills that will help them get on and succeed in life.
At Bengeworth Academy we employ a qualified Specialist PE Teacher to oversee the teaching and coordination of PE at Bengeworth, working alongside our scheme of Real PE. We also employ specialist sports coaches to deliver extra-curricular clubs throughout the year, alongside our fabulous school staff. Such specialism has successfully increased children's subject knowledge, participation and achievement in Sport and PE. Many children are now signposted into local clubs as their love for PE and School Sport has evolved.
