At Ightham Primary School we value the difference that Physical Education makes to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that a varied and innovative curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities can have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and achievement in all areas of our young people’s lives.
Sport Premium is a government funded payment aimed at improving and increasing the provision of PE in schools across the country. The amount of money paid is based on the number of pupils in the school and it is ring-fenced, meaning it has to be spent solely on PE. It is also expected that the money is spent in a manner that will improve PE in school in a sustainable manner. Therefore, when the money is no longer available, PE provision will have improved as a result of this funding.
Ightham received £17,760 in 2021-2022.
Our children attend Swimming lessons for one term in Key Stage 2 and two terms in Key Stage 1 every year. We won the Tonbridge and Malling Swimming Gala for five consecutive years between 2015 and 2019. Sadly, it hasn't been run since 2019 due to Covid.
