Physical Education

At Lickey End First School we believe Physical Education (PE) and Sport plays an important role in making our school motto ‘From tiny seeds grow mighty trees’ a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young children’s lives for the better.

The latest sports grant spend is detailed here.

The curriculum at Lickey End First School for physical education aims to ensure that:


    All Pupils should-

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities

Sports Premium

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for two years to improve provision of PE and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting clubs for all our pupils and encouraging healthy active lifestyles.

Since the original announcement, the scheme has been extended to run for three years in total.

What's our Sports Premium allocation?

Department for Education
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and Sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
June 2013

We are committed to working closely with other schools and so have invested some of the funding to join the North Worcestershire School Games Network ‘All Active Academy’. This will enable us to draw on the expertise and resources of local colleagues and participate in the local competitions organised by the Academy.

We have identified, through a self-review process, some key areas to develop to ensure we can meet the high expectations in PE and Sport for our children.

Is it making a difference?
