See Linked Documents below for the report – Evidencing the impact of the Sports Premium – 2017-18


Millbrook Vision for PE and School Sport
A measurable and sustained improvement in school PE and sport, underpinned by high quality teaching that increases participation levels in physical activity and leads to healthier pupils who are motivated and more engaged across the whole curriculum.

“Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this” (DfE, June 2013)

Extra PE funding was introduced by the Government in September 2013.  It is allocated to schools on the basis that:

  • There is an increase in participation rates in such activities as games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics.
  • There is an increase and greater success in competitive school sports.
  • That the PE curriculum becomes more inclusive.
  • There is a growth in the range of provisional and alternative sporting activities.
  • There is an improvement in partnership work on physical education with other schools and local partners.
  • That there are links with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills.
  • That there is a greater awareness amongst pupils about dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupil’s health.

At Millbrook teaching PE and healthy living is a high priority.  We see keeping active as an essential part of life and a habit that needs to be encouraged and celebrated.  Competition is seen as an important element of life and as a result we regularly hold a wide variety of competitions for all children, both within the school day and as part of the wider community. This is reflected in our House System which has a high profile within the school.  We encourage healthy living and our commitment to this is reflected in the cooking we do, JIGSAW, a scheme that promotes a healthy attitude to life skills, our cycling project and the Change for Life Project.
