Physical Education and Sport Funding
Following the inspirational London 2012 Olympic Games, the Government is committed to ensuring that a lasting legacy will inspire the nation. Developing a great enjoyment of sport and competitive activity will encourage children to engage in a healthy lifestyle from an early age.
Recently, the Government, announced that significant funding will be provided and that all primary schools will receive a significant amount of financial support to ensure that provision of PE and sport is improved.
Chalfont St Peter Infant School has been allocated an additional £9000 for children on role during the academic year 2016 - 2017. This extra funding will give us a unique opportunity to improve our already full provision of PE and Sport. Please see PE and Sport Funding Information under 'About Us'.
Our school is part of the Buckinghamshire Sports Partnership where we join with other schools to participate in unique learning experiences. All year groups attend Multi-skills and Dance Festivals at the Amersham School and Dr Challoners High School. These are led by staff and students who may be studying for the Community Sports Leaders Award.
Physical Education is an important part of our Curriculum and such that we ensure that all children participate in 2 hours of physical activity weekly. In addition to being taught: Dance, Team Games, aspects of Gymnastics and Athletics, children at our school are given the opportunity to attend Swimming Lessons at the local Leisure Centre. These regular timetabled lessons are also supported by extra-curricular opportunities.
Currently there are children attending Dance Club and Multi-skills Club (see Clubs page) on Wednesdays after school; at times these children rehearse and prepare for performances at annual Concerts or events in the local wider community. Twice weekly after school, Andy Schofield from Gerrards Cross Lawn Tennis Club provides extra-curricular Tennis coaching where children learn ball skills, serving and friendly competition. At various times throughout the year, Football and Gymnastic Clubs also take place.
The extra funding provided by the Government will enable us to:
