What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding for primary school PE and sport. In 2020/21 it will be £17150.
Purpose of funding
Schools spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport in order to:
- Develop or add to the PE and sports activities that the school already offers
- Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in later years
How will we be spending the Sport Premium Funding and who will benefit?
- All children benefit regardless of sporting ability and that all children are engaged in regular physical activity (30 minutes per day in school).
- The profile of PE and sport will be embedded into the school day by encouraging active break time and active lessons/teaching.
- All staff will be provided with training opportunities to increase confidence, knowledge and skills (The PE Hub).
- Healthy lifestyles and mental well-being are improved for all through yoga and well-being sessions.
- Children are given the opportunity to compete in sport and physical activity, during PE sessions.
Key achievements to date
- Our school offers a range of before and after school clubs, accessed by all children.
- Yoga sessions for all children from Nursery, EYFS to Year 6.
- Dance and gymnastics session increased for KS2
- Employed specialist sports coaches who provided weekly lessons for all children from the Early Years Foundation Stage through to Year 6. Each week the coach will work with all children. Not only will the children benefit from being taught by coaches but our own staff developed their confidence, knowledge and skills.
- Behaviour and personal development for all children is excellent.
- Sports ambassadors established to support the delivery of sport and physical activity within school.
- Enabled non-swimmers to swim more regularly so that all children leaving KS2 leave with a good standard of swimming (see below).
- Excellent communication between Leadership team and coordinator of PE.
- Added coaching for tournaments offering specialist teaching.
- Increased the school’s participation in School Games.
- Whole school and key stage walks.
- Given training to lunchtime supervisors in order to maximise the activity levels of the children.
How will we check its impact each year?
- A named governor, the Head and PE coordinator, observe lessons, monitor the take up of clubs, and talk to children about PE as part of our school self-evaluation cycle.
- Our evidence base is shared with all staff in weekly staff meeting where each subject lead has the opportunity to share developments or adaptations.
- Independent evaluation of our plans will be undertaken by our school advisor who will report to the governing body.
