PE and Sport Premium

Show Respect Work Together Aspire Nurture

What is Sports Premium?

 

The Government announced additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. It is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Ofsted has strengthened its coverage of sport within the Inspectors’ Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors are clear about how sport will be assessed in future as part of the overall provision offered by the school. Inspectors will consider:

“How well the school uses its Sports Premium to improve the quality and breadth of its PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of”

Specifically the Ofsted guidance for Inspectors states that Inspectors should consider the impact of the new primary school sport funding on pupils’ lifestyles and physical wellbeing.

How much did our school receive?

2016-17

Each school receives £8000 plus £5 per pupil. For this academic year our school expects to receive £8800. Our school receives this into the budget in two tranches: September to March (7/12 of the funding) and between April to August (5/12 of the funding). This funding will continue until 2020. The PE funding is currently being revised and may increase, although the amount is still to be confirmed during 2017-18.

How is our PE and Sports Funding Grant spent?

The aim of the funding is to improve the quality and breadth of our PE and sporting provision and to meet these criteria we have identified a number of key priorities which include:

  1. Investing in continual professional development for our staff by employing a specialist coach with QTS. Therefore staff can observe good teaching practices in PE and children can receive specialist provision. The total cost for this is £12,016, of which the school pays £7320 from Sports grant and offsets the rest from the school budget (This is an area for increased Sports grant spend would be attributed to further cover this cost in the future).

  2. Increasing the competitive opportunities available to all pupils by joining the Newark School’s Sports Association. £80.

  3. Increasing the breadth of sporting opportunities available to pupils including sports trips to Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, Trent Bridge Classroom. £200

  4. Introducing additional after school sports clubs which are facilitated by a specialist coach £500

  5. Providing specialist equipment where necessary and renewing and enhancing existing equipment.

  6. Purchase of the Leicestershire Scheme of Work for PE curriculum provision

  7. 2 days of support time from Sam Gorman (PE Specialist, Millfield LEAD Academy, Leicester) – CPD for PE Lead and Gymnastics open approach CPD for staff. Setting up new curriculum for Lovers’ Lane with PE Lead and cost of new PE folders (Planning and Assessment system). £700.

Our vision

Through the employment of specialist coaches and appointment of a strong and committed PE subject leader we aim: to deliver a high-quality Physical Education curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed, increase participation for all and excel in competitive sports and other physically- demanding activities. We owe pupils the opportunity to become more physically confident which will support their health and fitness and encourage the children to choose to adopt a healthier lifestyle and attitude towards sport.

After School Clubs

We believe it is important to provide sport provision every day after school until 4.30pm. Many of our talented staff members and sports coaches run at least two after school clubs a day.

  • KS2 Multi-Skills

  • KS2 Keep Fit

  • FS/KS1 Active Games

  • FS/KS1 Multi-Skills

  • KS2 Netball

  • KS2 Football

  • Dance Club

 

Sport club registers evidence that each and every club are very popular with all year groups.

 

We look for every opportunity to promote sports and to increase participation in PE. We have employed the University of Nottingham to run their STAK Programme within our school for thirty children. The aim is to install enough confidence in these children so they can participate in a healthy lifestyle.

Impact 2016-17

We now have afternoons of quality sports coaching that provides breadth and balance in our PE curriculum and in the mornings a ‘Lesson Study’ approach has been implemented to ensure that all staff (on rotation) work with our PE lead to implement the new PE curriculum with confidence and skill.

Classes now have 2 PE lessons per week and the ‘Leicestershire Scheme of Work’ is followed.

A new assessment system for PE is in place and being monitored by PE lead.

All staff have had CPD in PE since September 2016 in Gymnastics. PE Lead has had CPD day with an outstanding specialist PE consultant.

We also provide a sporting club every day after school which provides the children with extra sport provision to add extra breadth and enrichment. This has had a really positive impact within the classrooms which can be seen with the behaviour of the children and the progress that they make.

Sustainability 2017-18 and beyond

As of academic Year 2017-18, staff have been asked to lead a second PE lesson in the week. This has started and needs to continue to ensure all staff are confident and teaching PE at least at a ‘good’ standard. Our PE strategy is also aimed at raising resilience and character. Our PE Lead is also a Primary Mental Health Ambassador and Learning Mentor and is supporting staff and pupils in using PE as a vehicle to build resilience through overcoming challenges and through increased activity and serotonin. This CPD informs teachers teaching PE themselves and raises best practice sharing. This is how our funding a PE specialist will lead to sustainability of best practice as we are using her specialist guidance for teachers to raise standards of PE teaching across the staff for the future.

Mrs Lambert will also have time allocated to work with other PE Specialists to develop assessment systems and planning with teachers for PE.

 

Any increase in funding will be allocated to staff CPD/ Staffing costs for Specialist Coach and extra-curricular sports opportunities.
