Physical Education (PE)
At Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich, we believe that Physical Education will make a very important contribution to a child’s development by fostering positive attitudes towards sharing, co-operation and competition.
We aim to develop pupil’s self confidence and self-esteem through a wide variety of experiences both in curriculum time and competition in and out of school.
In both Key Stage 1 and 2 children are taught Gymnastics, Dance, Athletics, Invasion games (multi-sports at KS1) and Swimming. These form the core activities of the PE Curriculum.
Harris Academy East Dulwich currently runs extra-curricular sporting activities across both key stages, dependent upon the time of year, in football, netball, cricket, multi Sports, dance and athletics.
The school competes in many borough competitions as well as federation competitions. We have many fantastic teams as well as sporting talent across the Academy.
We aim to build on the success of last academic year’s Silver Sports Award, an award scheme to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
All physical education experiences are intended to meet all abilities and offer stimulating and challenging learning. We also aim to promote the values of exercise & enthusiasm for physical activities and to promote a lifelong interest in physical education as a whole.

How will we be spending the Sports funding and who will benefit?

· all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
· that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in high quality sporting activities
· that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
Primary School's Sports Funding - What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014 - 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary school head teachers. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. From 2017/18, all primary schools will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.
Purpose of funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
• hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
• new or additional sport clubs
• paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
• providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
• running sport competitions, or increasing participation in school games
• buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
• providing places for pupils in after school sport clubs and holiday clubs
