PE and Sport

At Valley Invicta Primary School at Aylesford we believe all children should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation. 

Physical activity has numerous benefits for children’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement. 

The chief medical officer advises that children should be active for up to 60 minutes per day and schools are responsible for 30 minutes per day. 

Using the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding we can ensure that children meet this target. This Government funding should be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered by schools. 

This means that schools use the premium to: 

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides 
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years 

Schools should use the premium to secure improvements in the 5 key indicators.

Your School Games Mark

Valley Invicta Primary School has been awarded the Your School Games GOLD award for our PE and Sport provision in 2018/19.

Sports Mark

The School Games Mark is a government-led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
