PE & Sport Premium
Encouraging children to adopt healthy lifestyles is part of our ethos and values here at Two Gates. Promoting physical and mental well-being is planned for across the curriculum, through daily teaching and the wider experiences offered at Two Gates.
The P.E. and Sport Premium is designed to help children get an active start in life, supporting primary schools to improve the quality of their P.E. and sport provision so that pupils experience the benefits of regular exercise – from becoming healthier both mentally and physically to improved behaviour and better academic achievement.
As this grant is not guaranteed long-term for schools, it is important that we spend it in a way that will benefit the majority of pupils in the school and maximise the impact over a sustained period of time. We have detailed improvement plans for all areas of school; expenditure relating to P.E. and sport funding is tagged to identified improvements on the P.E. & Sport action plan which is aligned with delivering sustained impact across the DfE’s 5 Key Indicators:
Key Indicator 1: the 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
Key Indicator 2: the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
Key Indicator 3: increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
Key Indicator 4: broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
Key Indicator 5: increased participation in competitive sport

Due to the enforced closure of our school as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic, all our summer curriculum entitlement, outdoor sporting fixtures and annual events could not take place.
Pupils of critical workers and pupils in Reception and Year 1 attending school have engaged in daily activity and sport throughout.
Pupils at home have had specific weekly P.E. challenges and home learning activities made available via our remote learning platform Seesaw. They have shared photographs and posts of their learning in P.E. which has been lovely to see.
We are planning additional opportunities in P.E. and Sport for all pupils on their return to school in September.
We will also need to ensure that the improvements in learning and teaching made over the past two years are reviewed and maintained. This will be a focus of the 2020-2021 Action Plan.
We value your support in ensuring your children have the correct kit in school so that they can participate fully in physical education lessons and wider experiences.
