This is a nurturing environment where children, staff, parents and governors know each other and share a common understanding of the School’s purpose – to ‘aim high’ and through shared understanding of Gospel values, ensure that the potential of every child is fully achieved. Our children are happy, sociable, well-behaved and value our diversity, which enriches everything we do. We are recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the local authority and are confident this will be endorsed at our next Ofsted inspection.

Impact of Spending 2014-2015

·      Over the last academic year the main focus of our PE premium has been to develop our overall level of provision for EYFS and KS1 as well as continuing to expand the curriculum for all children.
·      The development of the KS1 playground was the largest outlay from the PE fund last year and has made a huge impact on the day to day lives of our children. The playground now has a specific Physical Education focus to aid and develop our EYFS and KS1 children. The children have particularly enjoyed the new climbing wall and rope tunnel and this new facility has ensured that our children are now more physically active during playtimes than they were previously.

·      The premium has also provided several new resources for the EYFS including balance boards, a spinning top and parachute games for the children. The balance boards and spinning top alongside the A-frames already in Reception have ensured a greater provision for Physical Development.

     ·      Our membership of several organisations such as the Youth Sport Trust and the Lewisham Primary School Games Association has enabled our school to have access to training for staff and competitions for pupils at a rate we could not provide without our membership. Spending on these memberships will continue over the next academic year.
     ·      Upon discussion with children and observations of playtime behaviour the PE premium has also provided for the expansion of the school curriculum. Children demonstrated over the last year a keen interest in the sport of Handball. As such we have now been able to buy a set of handballs for the school and are looking into the possibility of running a handball club next year using the PE funding.
