Physical Education

PE and Sport Premium Funding

Physical activity plays an important part of the curriculum at Lisburne school, supporting children to progress and build confidence in their physical development.  Every child has access to Physical Education each week. Classes take part in Swimming, Gymnastics, Games, Dance, & Jumpspace (Rebound Therapy)

We receive government funding which helps us to provide and improve the quality of PE and sports at our school.

In addition to the statutory swimming lessons, money has been allocated to provide opportunities for children to attend swimming sessions on a 1:1 or small group basis to gain experience and confidence prior to accessing formal lessons.

The funding is also used to provide rebound therapy for a large number of our children to attend Jump Space.  Rebound therapy supports the development of motor skills, body awareness, balance, coordination and communication.

We continue to be a member of SHAPE (Stockport Schools Health, Activity, Physical Education & Sport Alliance), which enables us to participate in competitions against other local primary schools.

All children are all given the opportunity to participate in an activity/sport that is different to the norm, for example: sailing, indoor rock climbing or horse riding.  These activities usually take place in the Summer term.

Often our upper KS2 children often access a residential away from home for several nights taking part in Outside Adventure activities and enriched learning opportunities.

Our current Physical Education Allocation for 2021/2022 is as follows:
