Sports premium

Improving PE and sports for all children

The amount of premium received:

The allocation of PE and sports premium for this financial year 2016/17 is £8434.

How we plan to spend it:

  • £5966 will be spent on specialist sports coaching to teach our children and also upskill our teachers. We have spent £2470 on Team Theme from Apr 16 – Jul 16 but from Sep 16 onwards we will employ a sports teacher (Mr Alex Cotter) for one day a week to coach all year groups.
  • £550 will be spent to buy into the local School Games package to enable us to participate in competitions with other schools. Our aim is for every pupil in KS2 to take part in at least one inter-school sports competition and to send teams to the majority of competitions offered.
  • £1628 will be spent on resources. A parent who is a qualified hockey coach has volunteered to teach quick-sticks hockey throughout the school so we have purchased enough equipment to enable this. Mr Cotter has noted equipment that needs replacing and to enable new sports. We also need resources to develop more Outdoor Adventurous Activities such as orienteering.
  • £290 will be spent on transport and entry to special one-off events that could inspire children to try more unusual sports such as climbing wall; archery; etc.

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.
