Sports premium

Improving PE and sports for all children

The amount of premium to be received in 2017/2018:

 The allocation of PE and sports premium for this financial year 2017/18 is £16850.  The Sports Grant consists of £16,000 plus £10 per pupil.

We believe the purpose of the Sports’ Premium is:

  • To ensure that children benefit from high quality Physical Education as part of the school curriculum and that staff benefit from continuing professional development;
  • To provide opportunities for competitive school sport for all children who wish to take part;
  • To encourage children to take part in School Sports and PE;
  • To identify, enthuse and engage with children and families who are less likely to choose sports and exercise as a lifestyle choice;
  • To increase the number of children who take part in after-school sports clubs by offering a wider range of activities;
  • To work in partnership with other organisations and school to maximise the potential of School Sports and PE;
  • To inspire children to participate in a range of sporting activities.

How we plan to spend it:

  • £9350 will be spent on specialist sports coaching to teach our children and also upskill our teachers. We will employ a Sports Teacher from September 17 to July 18  through the ‘Sport Education Team’ (they will also run 2 after-school sports clubs).
  • £600 Membership of the North School (inter school sports competition package).
  • £2000 will be spent on sports equipment/outdoor learning resources
  • £2500 will be spent on enriching after school clubs through external providers
  • £1000 will be spent on adventurous activity days
  • £1000 will be spent on a sports enrichment week
  • £400 will be spent on transport the children to competitions

Impact on pupils’ participation:

  • 100% of pupils will participate in quality coaching during the school week.
  • All KS2 pupils will take part in at least one inter-school competition and over a third will take part in two or more competitions.
  • For non-competitive/sporty pupils, they will also be taking part in physical activity during Outdoor Adventurous Activities.
  • Pupils will be inspired by more unusual sports which they may not otherwise have the opportunity to access.

How improvements are sustainable:

  • Teachers will be improving their skills in teaching PE and especially learning about new sports.
  • Children have been exposed to more PE and are more enthusiastic to participate in physical activity.
  • School is better resourced to continue teaching the variety of sports introduced.
  • Children will be motivated by competition to want to take part in more sports.
