PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORT PREMIUM
At Fairfields Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of all children. We believe that providing a varied PE curriculum as well as extra-curricular opportunities not only promote our school’s sports values but have a significant influence on the academic achievement of all children. We are committed to ensure that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well trained and enthusiastic teachers and also professional coaches.
What is Sports Premium? The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/2016 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8000 plus and extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. The money can only be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE provision in schools.

Balanceability is a learn-to-cycle programme for children aged 2½ years upwards. Balanceability combines balance bikes with a schedule of fun activities that build confidence, spatial-awareness and dynamic balance skills, enabling young children to cycle without ever needing stabilisers. At Fairfields, we run this programme alongside our curriculum P.E. lessons for children in EYFS and Year 1.
