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. 

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

How much did our school receive?

2018-19

Our school received £17,590 based on pupils in Year 1-6 receiving the funding.

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).

 

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. Lesson study programme with staff to improve practice and embed Leicestershire Scheme of Work implemented in 2016-17.  The total cost for this is £17,000 which the school pays from Sports grant.
  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. Providing specialist equipment where necessary and renewing and enhancing existing equipment. £110

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 (led by students from Lincoln College)
  • KS2 Netball
  • KS2 Football
  • Dance Club (led by students from Lincoln College)

 

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 2018-19

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.

Lesson study has enabled staff to grow in confidence and learning walks in PE and incidental observations have noted improved delivery of gymnastics and dance.

A new assessment system for PE is used across school and is monitored by PE lead.

All staff are applying CPD received in observed PE lessons and in lesson study sessions.

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.

 

Our school was awarded the Kevin Eveleigh Cup at the Newark Area and District Sports Awards in 2017-18. Other schools made the following comments about Lovers’ Lane pupils representing us in sport:

  • “Win or lose, they are always well mannered”
  • “Lovers’ Lane take part in almost every sport available, always trying their best”
  • “For a small school, they always punch above their weight!”

We are extremely proud of this award and were nominated by other schools in our area. We are proud of how our children show off our SWAN values in sporting contexts.

Pupils across KS2 have represented the school in Football, Netball and Athletics. The school netball team have been runners up (2nd Place) in the Newark Area and District League in 2017 and 2018 and in 2019 won the league for small schools across the Newark Area and District. For a small school, we are extremely proud of this achievement! This is the first time this has ever happened

Sporting achievement is gaining momentum and pupils are enjoying recognition through awards.

 

Sustainability 2019-20 and beyond

Funding in 2019-20

This has not yet be confirmed, but is likely to be £16000, plus £10 per eligible child as per the January Census data.

As of academic Year 2019-20, staff will continue to lead a second PE lesson in the week. Lesson study support for new staff will continue with our aim that all staff are confident and teaching PE at least at a ‘good’ standard (eg coaching for NQTs). 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. We have new staff in our team so part of the development will be to ensure all staff are familiar and confident with delivering our PE scheme of work.

Mrs Lambert will also have time allocated to work with other PE Specialists to develop assessment systems and planning with teachers for PE through joint working across Newark Town Schools

Staff CPD and related supply cover will be paid for using Sports Premium funding – eg. new enrichment opportunities such as American Football.
