Sports Premium Funding

The grant that the school received for the school years 2016 – 2017 was £8897. We are estimating that the allocation for the year 2017 – 2018 will match this.

Our main aim is to improve further the quality of our P.E provision, developing our teaching skills, broadening our P.E curriculum and establishing strong and sustainable partnerships with local sports clubs.

How the money was spent?

The budget was spent on developing our existing provision as follows:

  1. Training and Staff Development

Specialist teaching to develop the teachers’ and children’s skills in the following:

  • Karate
  • Cheerleading
  • Fencing
  • Indoor Athletics (KS2)
  • Multiskills
  • Cricket
  • Netball
  • Tennis
  • Football (Years 3 and 6)

Impact to date

The School has been awarded the Active Mark Gold for P.E Provision for the second year running. This accredited award gives quality assurance to the P.E provision at our school.

 

Children have benefitted from Karate (Year 2 and 4), Fencing (Year 1, 3 & 4), Cheerleading (Year 5 and 4), Dance (Year 6, 2, 1 and EYFS), Indoor Athletics (Year R), Football (Year 3 & 6), Netball (Year 4), Rugby (Year 3 & 5) and Tennis lessons (Year R ).

They have shown a progression of skills developed over a series of lessons.

Members of staff have an increased knowledge of skills, progression, safety, use of equipment and apparatus in gym lessons and tennis lessons

The school’s P.E coach has continued the Multiskills club (for Years 1 to 4) .

The school has been able to involve pupils in Key Stage 2, who had previously not been involved in a P.E extra-curricular club, in a new club at lunchtimes.

“After joining the football club at school, me and my two friends have attended a girls’ football holiday club” (Year 5 pupil)

 

“I was inspired to join clubs I had never attended before because I really wanted to represent our school. I am proud that I have worked hard and achieved my goal!” (Year 6 pupil)

 

“I loved the cheerleading lessons, and now I go to a cheerleading club outside of school, which I love too!” (Year 1 pupil)

 

Participation in Healthy Week was 100%. Parents reported that children were motivated by the activities. The opportunities for parents and children to participate in sports together (yoga and netball) were well supported by parents from all year groups). The Daily Mile initiative was launched during this week, and has been enthusiastically supported by staff and children.
