PE and Sport Funding
PE and sport are valued highly and play a very important part in the life of Lilliput C.E. Infant School. Therefore, as a staff team, we have carefully considered the units and skills we will teach based on our knowledge of how the children learn and what we believe will support the children at Lilliput most, in line with the EYFS framework and the National Curriculum. This is reassessed each year and is continually discussed throughout the year to allow children to receive a positive and strong experience of sport throughout their time at Lilliput.
Celebratory Sports Week
At the end of each unit, children at Lilliput experience a 'Celebratory Sports Week' where the children get the opportunity to apply the skills learnt during that unit of work to a team game, performance or tournament. During 'Celebratory Sports Week', a child from each class will also be awarded the 'Sports Person of the Half Term' in worship. 'Sports Person of the Half Term' will be awarded to children who have developed their skills and shown our school values in their PE lessons. These children are announced in our celebration worship and receive a special mention in our sports newsletter.

At Lilliput C.E. Infant School, we are committed to the ongoing and sustained improvement of PE and sport. Our overall aim is to raise standards in PE and sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.
Since 2013, the government have been providing approximately £150 million per year to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in schools. The money must be used to improve the provision of PE and school sport. Ofsted continue to monitor the impact of this funding and schools have to account for how they have spent their Sport Premium money. We are therefore delighted to be able to use the money received to date to support the development of PE and sport in the following ways (please see below for a detailed outline of how have spent/ intend to spend the sports premium money):
Please note, that due to Covid-19 virus, which has disrupted the sports activities for the Summer Term, unallocated funds from the 2019-20 PE and Sport Premium Funding were carried forward to the 2020-21 PE and Sport Premium Funding. Equally, unallocated funds from the 2020-21 PE and Sport Premium Funding have been carried forward to the 2021-22 PE and Sports Premium Funding.
