PE and Sports Premium 2018-19

In 2018-19, the school received a Sports Premium Grant of around £20000 to improve physical education for our pupils. We used this funding to:

  • Develop the quality of PE teaching across the school
  • Appoint a Sports Teaching Assistant
  • Support pupils to develop a healthy lifestyle and a life long love of sport
  • Engage ALL pupils in regular physical activity
  • Continue to build the profile of PE and Sport at Laurance Haines
  • Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE and Sport
  • Offer a broader experience and a range of sports and activities to pupils
  • Increase participation in competitive sport

We also:

  • continued with a contract with our local School Sports Partnership who provide our staff with training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • hired qualified sports coaches to work with children at lunchtime
  • hired a sports coach to support the delivery of high quality PE across the school and enrich the PE provision for all
