Sports Premium & Sporting Provision

Physical Education

Dove  Bank Primary School has long recognised the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement. Dove Bank Primary School is committed to ensure that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teacher. Regular staff training opportunities are provided for teachers and TAs to keep them up to date with new initiatives. The school participates enthusiastically in a range of local sports competitions and events against other schools in North West Leicestershire.
