At Bottesford Infant School we believe that, 'Better movers make better thinkers. Better movers make better learners.' We are committed to improving PE and school sport for our young children. Following the success of the sports premium, the government doubled the sports funding in September 2017. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sports in schools.
Let's Get Healthy
We are a proud member of the Get Ahead Partnership and work closely with them to improve every child's experience of PE (curriculum), to increase opportunities for competition against selves and others, increase physical activity for all young people and encourage a healthy lifestyle. This year we have invested some of our Sport Premium money to become one of their 'Let's Get Healthy' schools; Miss Borrie is our Health Improvement Co-ordinator and is in school every Friday, helping us to be the healthiest, happiest school we can be. So far this year Miss Borrie has...
Miss Borrie also works with groups of children throughout the afternoon, including our Sports Leaders - please see http://www.bottesfordinfants.co.uk/sports-leaders/ for more information.

We are very proud of how fit and healthy our children are, as they already have so many opportunities at our school to take part in daily physical activity and learn about healthy lifestyles. We aim to make our provision even better using the Sports Premium funding.
In 2017/2018 we used the Sport Premium funding to:

The School Council met with Miss Parker to discuss our playground and what we could do to make playtimes even more fun and even more active. The children decided they would really like to play more games and in order to do this we would need some new equipment. They created a shopping list using post-its and catalogues. Here is all of our new equipment ready to go!
We have invested in the PE library from 'Primary Steps in PE'. Each week children from Year 1 and 2 take home a PE Library bag for the weekend; each bag contains some equipment and an activity book. The idea behind the PE Library is to get children more active at home and to encourage more physical play with their parents/siblings.
