School Sport Vision Statement 2017-2018
At Lily Lane we value the positive impact that good health has upon learning and school life. We recognise and are committed to meeting the physical, mental, emotional and social health needs of our children. We value the expertise of other agencies, use them where appropriate and seek to promote health and well-being for all. We constantly strive to deliver the highest quality Physical Education, sport and physical activity for all our children.
We aim to provide a welcoming, safe and secure environment, where all staff, parents and the wider community work together to encourage pupils to lead healthy lifestyles and to take responsibility for their own health and well-being.
School Sport Funding 2017-2018
The school has received additional funding of £20,530 this year to improve PE and sport provision. The premium will be spent to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of all our pupils, in order to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
This funding will be used to improve outcomes relating to three key areas:
1. Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
- professional development opportunities for the PE coordinators and teachers
- access to NQT and RQT training opportunities
- providing cover in order to release teachers to attend relevant training courses
- lesson observations and feedback to ensure PE lessons are ‘high quality’ and teachers’ subject knowledge is sound though the employment of a P.E specialist teacher.
- staff training including play workers relating to the teaching of physical activities in order to increase activity levels at playtimes
- audit and purchase new equipment in order to deliver high quality lessons and extra-curricular activities
- lunchtime equipment purchased and training of LOs to deliver active playtime initiatives
- skills based progressive curriculum is evident across the school
3. Pupil Participation

At Lily Lane we support afPE’s
Physical Education Declaration and we aim to ensure that;
Health and emotional well-being of all our children is improved
Education is an entitlement and therefore the impact of physical education across the curriculum is valued and recognised.
Leadership by all headteachers, Governors and subject leaders promotes and celebrates the value of P.E, physical activity and school sport.
Physical education is ‘Powerful Education’ and we support and recognise the impact it has on the whole school development, making a real difference to the lives of children and preparing them for an ever changing world.
