At St Laurence we place an emphasis on school sport and PE. In 2018-19 we attended a range of competitions and festivals. At the Dodgeball competition, out of 12 teams, we won the fair team award, this is something that we are really proud of!
In 2019-20 the school is allocated £18,100 Sports Premium Funding. Please read the information below which gives details about how we allocate the spending.
At St Laurence Primary School we are committed to developing the whole child physically through high quality Physical Education, which is supported by a competitive annual calendar of school sport. In addition to this, we also provide physical activities for children who want to dance and become active outside the means of school sport.
Each year we hold a sports event for the whole school, in addition to our sports day. These are organised by Mrs Kemish and have been a huge success. In 2018 we held a 500 Miles Day! Staff and pupils walked the school field throughout the day to collectively walk 500 miles. In 2019 we held an All Day Relay event. The children and staff ran in their houses (Inspiration, Determination, Respect and Courage) and Respect won the day!
Here at St Laurence, we also develop our staff through the means of team teaching in order to improve the quality of the teaching and learning. We actively access competitive school sport and provide an opportunity for all young people to participate in clubs at least once per year.
We achieve this in the following ways:
By accessing team teaching support from Progressive Sports, two classes per week.
We affiliate to the ESSP (Erewash School Sports Partnership) so we can access an annual calendar of competitions and regularly look to arrange fixtures with local schools and also run an inclusive sports day annually for KS1 and KS2.
Pupil Premium children have access to extra PE sessions
We develop physical activity through intervention groups to support movement and health such as bike-ability delivery.
