PE & Sport Premium


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 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.

Impact of PE & Sport Premium Funding Since April 2016

Our children have taken part in an increasing number of competitions and festivals including tag rugby, indoor and outdoor athletics, football, handball, dodgeball, high 5, ultimate Frisbee, boccia, Kwik Cricket, swimming gala and the National Schools’ Cheerleading Championship.

We have successfully implemented a new PE framework to ensure appropriate coverage of the skills required and progression through the year groups. Members of staff have attended external training sessions and we have bought in an experienced coach to work directly with the children during curriculum time in partnership with the staff. This has enabled us to provide professional development and continue to develop the quality of PE teaching.

Following the installation of an orienteering course in the school grounds, all the Junior classes have been introduced to orienteering by an external coach in partnership with staff. This proved very popular with children commenting that

“I have learnt how to read maps and know what the symbols mean now”

“I really enjoyed it especially when we got to work in teams”

“I loved the team games we played”

Next term we intend to hold Junior orienteering competition to give the children the opportunity to use their skills and we are entering in a team in the inter-school orienteering championship.

We have once again increased the number and range of sporting clubs which are available to the pupils and in particular have targeted children who hadn’t previously attended sports clubs by offering less traditional sports such as fencing, boccia, handball and archery.  As a result every class has seen a greater numbers of children taking part 74% of the Juniors accessing at least one after-school sporting club from September to February half-term 2016/17. This is an increase of over 20% in most classes.

We are now in the process of extending this opportunity to Year 1 with multi-skills being offered this half-term.

Feedback from the children suggested that they enjoyed the opportunity to learn a new skills.

To increase opportunities for active lunch times, we bought in a sports coach initially for one lunch time a week but this has proved so popular we have now extended it to twice weekly sessions.

For the remainder of this year, in addition to increasing opportunities for Infant children to access sporting clubs, we will use the PE & Sport Premium to:

  • Continue to provide specialist coaching during curriculum time to train staff and upskill pupils
  • Give an increasing number of pupils the opportunity to take part in inter-school competitions and festivals
  • Continue to develop the assessment of PE skills throughout the school to enable SLT to track progress effectively

The funding in 2015/16 of £8,835 was used for the following:
  • to appoint a new PE & Sport Premium co-ordinator and PE subject leader
  • to provide training for the PE & Sport Premium leader
  • to review and modify PE scheme of work to further develop the quality of PE teaching throughout the school
  • to complete and audit of trainng needs across the teaching staff and provide training both internally and externally as required
  • continue to offer a wide range of extra curricular sports
  • Increase percentage of girls and EAL pupils taking part in sporting after-school/lunchtime activities. (Identified as a key area following previous analysis of attendance at sporting clubs)
  • Invest in an orienteering course and scheme of work for every year group 
  • Increase opportunities for children to take part in competitive fixtures by buying into Carr Hill's sports partnership and providing a teaching assistant to accompany pupils to team events/fixtures. 
  • Increase sporting opportunities at lunchtime by employing specialist coach for one lunchtime a week 

Examples of impact in 2015/16 included:

  • 100% increase in the number of pupil's taking part in competitive sporting events 
  • Huge increase in % of girls taking part in extra curricular activities
  • Increase in EAL pupils taking part in sporting clubs
  • Achieved 2nd place in the National cheerleading championships
  • Increased teaching staff confidence with regard to teaching dance
  • Increased number of pupils taking part in lunchtime sporting activites
  • Orienteering course now in place in school grounds
