Sports Premium Grant
The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was an opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy a memorable cultural and sporting experience. The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the games and to develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age. As a result, in 2013 the Prime Minister set aside £300m specifically to improve the provision of Primary School PE and School Sport.
Our vision is for all pupils to leave our school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. We aim to achieve self-sustaining improvements in the quality of PE and sport against 5 key indicators:
1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick starting healthy active lifestyles
2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the whole school as a tool for whole school improvement
3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Judo Champions visit Graveney...
We have already begun some exciting new sports in school with the introduction of a new after school club this term. Eddie and Caz joined us for a demonstration of Judo in our assembly. We now have 25% of our pupils learning Judo after school on a Thursday.
Eddie and Caz will not be running the Judo Club on Thursday 28th September and Thursday 5th October as they will be attending the World Judo Championships. We wish them both the very best of luck and hope they win more medals to show us on their return.
Just a quick update on the tournament. Caz won herself a fantastic Bronze medal. We hope she will bring it to the school this week.

We are exceptional proud of one of our pupils, Mihai, who was selected to participate in the 'Surbition Team Challenge Cup'. Mihai went to Wimbledon on Thursday 8th June to participate in the 10 and under tennis tournament; this was a 'Davis Cup' style event.
Mihai had a wonderful time at the event with his team achieving a Gold medal for his hard work.
