Sports Premium

The Government provides funding each year to schools for sports, this is called our sports premium funding. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.


The money allocated to our school is to be spent on improving the quality of our sport, physical activity and physical education (PE) for all our children. The sport funding can only be spent on this provision in our school. This funding must be used for the benefit of all our primary-aged pupils so that they develop healthy active lifestyles.

We have the freedom to choose how we do this, possible uses for the funding include:


·       hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers  

        when teaching PE
·       new or additional sport clubs paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
·       providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport running

       sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
·      buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport

Impact of Sports Premium

Allocation 2018-2019

We spent £17,976 on sports last year. Our key aims were to introduce an early morning sports session, introduce a new outdoor education activity that links physical activity with lesson engagement and health and wellbeing, continue to engage in high-quality PE sessions. The impact of spending is as follows: 

 

  •  
  • Participation in sports clubs continues to be high
  • The 'Top of the Propps' dance club is successful, the older children have ownership over the club and children from Nursery to Year 6 attend a morning session twice weekly. Attendance is high. 
  • ​Children are engaging with outdoor learning activities offsite, applying taught skills within lessons. Consequently, lesson engagement for targetted underperforming children has improved. 
  • Pupils engagement and enjoyment within PE lessons continues to be high
  • There is an increase in the percentage of children reaching the expected level for physical development
  • During pupil interviews, the children's' feedback was positive, highlighting their enjoyment of learning new skills across a broad range of disciplines. 
  • Our school has achieved the Gold Sports Mark for our commitment to promoting active healthy lifestyles, participation for all in a wide variety of sports and playing sports with other schools in our local community. 

 

SWIMMING

  • By the end of Year 4, 15 out of 20 children could swim at least a length.
  • Most children had moved on from basic swimming skills by the end of the year and were practicing other skills such as treading water.
  • A handful of very able swimmers were practicing life-saving skills by the end of the year.
