Growing Towards Tomorrow

PE and Sport Premium

Daily Mile - Getting Fit and Fast

At Larkspur we are committed to getting fast and fit.  Everyday we do the Daily Mile and over the days and weeks we begin to get fitter.  At the start of each half term we are timed and we try to improve out time.  

There are medals given to the fastest three, but we still challenge ourselves to be the best we can be.


Daily Mile House Race

This term we have had our first intra school relay race.  One child from each class was selected to run one lap of our track and pass on the baton.  It was an exciting race from start to finish and we all turned out to support our team.  The winners this time were Willow and we all celebrated their great achievement.

Sports Premium


Larkspur should receive just over £17,000 sports premium funding this year. It is continuing to be used to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school headteachers.  It is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


Sports Premium at Larkspur

Gateshead SSCo and Cluster Work

We have bought into the Gateshead Schools Sports Partnership at 'Premium' level. As part of this package we have access to centrally organised sports tournaments and festivals as well as extensive work within the local cluster of schools. We also receive heavilly subsidised or free training courses as part of the Premium package. As part of the cluster we work together with other local primary schools linked to the feeder secondary school.Children participate in a wide range of tournaments and festivals across all year groups. We also receive curriculum support from staff at the secondary school. 

Staff Development

We have decided that a key focus and area of development in our school is to develop staff confidence in teaching PE and school sport. Many members of staff have little or no training in PE and specific school sports so a large amount of the funding received is going towards training staff including teacher's, TA's/HLTA's and lunchtime supervisors. From this we aim to raise standards in the teaching of high quality PE during curriculum lessons and also to develop Sport Specific after school or lunch time clubs, with staff feeling more confident to lead an out of hours club.
