PE is at the heart of life here at New York Primary School. We aim to provide high quality, varied PE opportunities to all pupils by ensuring that teaching staff are highly skilled and confident, with up to date knowledge. 

We want our pupils to be active and healthy with a desire to sustain an active lifestyle through an understanding of the lasting physical and mental health benefits of PE and sport.

Our PE curriculum compliments our approach to Healthy Schools where we offer Healthy Cooking clubs, provide fruit for KS2 and operate a Healthy family recipe bag scheme across school. Our pupils partake in the ‘Daily Mile’ and we aim for health and physical exercise to have a positive impact upon the lives of our pupils and provide a lasting legacy beyond primary school.

The Department for Education has a vision for Sport and PE in schools:

ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Schools are provided with funding to support the achievement of this vision and the spending of the PE Premium funding is measured against the success in 5 key areas below.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • The profile of PE and sport being 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

For the academic year 2018/2019 New York allocated Sport and PE Premium (£18150) as follows:
