We aim to give our children the skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and life long participation in physical activity.
The funding is designed to ensure:
- the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- increased participation in competitive sport
In addition, Gilthill aims to:-
- develop physical confidence and enable pupils to engage in worthwhile physical activities.
- promote physical development and teach pupils to value the benefits of participation in physical activity while at school and throughout life.
- develops artistic and aesthetic understanding within and through movement.
- help to establish self esteem through the development of physical confidence and help pupils to cope with both success and failure in competitive and cooperative physical activities.
- help children to see the enjoyment they can gain from participation in sport and physical activity.
- To promote active outdoor pursuits
