Sports Premium

Every school has a sports premium, an amount of money to spend on improving the provision and opportunities for children to engage with sports - please see the attached documentation to see how we have spent ours.

At Blisland Primary we use our PE sessions to offer children the opportunity to try different sports and develop a range of skills. They are taught about keeping healthy and making healthy choices as well as how to participate and push yourself so that every child, regardless of their interest and ability, is able to enjoy and make the most out of PE sessions.

We ensure all chidlren engage 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.

We ensure PE and being physically active has a high profile across the school. We are very proud of the amount of sport and activity that is on offer at Blisland Primary and the increasing number of children who participate

Outdoor Learning

We provide many opportunities for children to engage with and learn in the outdoors. In line with the 'Wild Tribe'' programme, this has involved learning related to the curriculum, but doing it outside! Learning outdoors keeps the children physically active while learning; it also has real benefits on their emotional wellbeing.
