The PE & Sport Premium is funding in addition to the school's budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding around the development of sport in school and to improve the quality of sport and PE throughout the school.

The expenditure of our PE & Sport Premium money is discussed with Governors and it was agreed that we would use it to improve the quality of PE teaching, access to specialist coaches and increase opportunities for children to take part in a range of sports and where possible competitions.

Impact of Sports Premium Funding Since April 2018

All Y1-6 classes have benefited from weekly specialist coaching during PE and this is also good professional development for staff who are building up their skills to ensure that the progress made in the teaching of PE is sustainable. Initially we used both Premier Sport (Josh) and AFC Fylde for the curriculum time but when we had a changeover in coach from AFC Fylde we took the decision to move all our sessions to Josh. His lessons are extremely well organised, cover the key skills and there is a clear progression in place. We have had very positive feedback from both staff and children.  

 

Our children have continued to take part in a large number of competitions and festivals including athletics, rugby, football, handball, fencing, dodgeball, badminton, netball, Kwik Cricket, swimming gala and the National Schools’ Cheerleading Championship.

We are seeing increasing success in the inter-school competitions winning the football league, swimming gala and Y3/4 dodgeball.

In the autumn term there was a decrease in the number of sports clubs on offer due to the unavailability of the hall which will impact on the number of children who have attended clubs as there has been less available to the younger children. We are currently in the process of addressing this and analysing the data so that we can target any children who haven’t yet been involved in a sporting activity. However we have once again offered a wide range of clubs including some new to our school such as badminton.

 

Following last year’s success of the lunchtime activities provided by AFC Fylde coach Matt, we have increased it to 4 lunchtimes from Christmas. The activities he provides, usually dodgeball and handball are accessed by children throughout Juniors and both sexes. He is very skilled at managing the games and the pupils are developing their skills and fitness.

 

In conjunction with Josh, we completed an audit of PE equipment in school and identified and purchased any specialist equipment needed to deliver the full PE curriculum such as badminton racquets.

 

We bought in an additional swimming teacher for our Y3/4 class which had the largest number of non-swimmers we have seen in a long time. They are now making good progress.

 

We also bought in 2 new activities this year:

  • Forest schools – which all of Y3 had experience of for a morning and a small group had 6 sessions. These were very successful in many ways and the children gained a lot from them. It is definitely something we would consider using again and something that we can look into training a member of staff for.
  • Little Yogis – the children did enjoy the first few sessions and responded well to it but we felt that it was very expensive to have over a longer term and that it was something staff could now deliver after the initial few sessions.

Impact of Sports Premium Funding Since April 2017

Our children have continued to take part in an increasing number of competitions and festivals including athletics, football, handball, fencing, dodgeball, high 5, Kwik Cricket, swimming gala and the National Schools’ Cheerleading Championship.

We are seeing increasing success in the inter-school competitions as a result of the last two years focus on sports skills. We were champions in both dodgeball competitions Y3/4 and Y5/6 – clearly ‘practise makes perfect’ as dodgeball is usually the game played by the children at lunchtime with the AFC coach.

We were disappointed when Simon Huggan from Premier Sport left at the end of the summer term as he had been a real asset and felt like part of the staff.  However we agreed to trial a new coach, Amy in the Autumn Term and Josh in the Spring term. Josh has completed self-assessments with the children and is now trained in the additional areas which Simon was able to offer – fencing and archery.

 

We wanted all our Junior children and staff to have the opportunity of professional sports coaches and therefore we have bought in an additional afternoon since September. As premier sport were moving to a new coach we decided to also trial AFC Fylde as they had someone who was an ex Y6teacher. Neil has taught Y6, Y3 and Y1 and we have been impressed with his delivery in lessons. Therefore we are continuing to use him until the end of the Summer term.

 

Staff evaluations indicated that they feel more skilled in the delivery of invasion and wall games as a result of this and we will do a questionnaire to identify areas of key focus for next year.

 

We have once again increased the number and range of sporting clubs which are available to the pupils. New sports offered this year have included lacrosse which the children thoroughly enjoyed.

The percentages of children taking part is generally in line with that of last year –  our highest uptake ever of  sporting clubs.

The class with the lowest uptake is Y5 and they were the lowest last year when they were in Y4 too. A lot of these children take part in extra-curricular activities at home, however Daryl is going to look at which children it is.

As last year, Daryl will target any children who haven’t yet been to a club to find or which sports they would be interested in so hopefully by the end of the year almost all Juniors will have attended at least one sporting club.

Following last year’s success of the lunchtime activities provided by AFC Fylde coach Matt, we have increased it to 3 lunchtimes this year. The activities he provides, usually dodgeball and handball are accessed by children throughout Juniors and both sexes. He is very skilled at managing the games and the pupils are developing their skills and fitness.
