PE and school sport funding

Why has it been introduced?

The Government aims to help Primary schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

During 2014/2015 we used the Sports funding in the following ways:

  • To provide a Gymnastics coach each week to run an after school club for FS2 and KS1.
  • To provide Tri-golf coaching sessions for KS2 children.
  • To provide a Zumba coach each week to run after school clubs and offer more of a variety of clubs to encourage more pupils to attend.
  • Releasing teachers to attend CPD training to address specific needs.
  • Attending school competitions.
  • To provide coaching opportunities for staff.
  • KS2 PE workshop.
  • Buying new/additional teaching resources to support the delivery of PE in school e.g. athletics equipment.
  • Purchasing PE/playground equipment to develop a fully inclusive curriculum.

Impact of the Sport Funding:

  • The Gymnastics club had FS and KS1 children attending in half-termly weekly sessions.
  • Children in Yr 4, 5 and 6 have been participating in Tri-golf training sessions.
  • Children in KS2 have participated in a Zumba club and attended half-termly weekly sessions.
  • All school children participated in Bike day. The day included various activities and a £100 raffle prize was given out to a participant.
  • 55 children were able to attend the Cross-Country event.

During the 2015/2016 financial year we plan to use the sports funding as follows:

  • Employing specialist teachers to work alongside staff to increase their subject knowledge and plan a block of progressive lessons.
  • Improving staff professional learning to up-skill teachers and support 3 NQT’s.
  • Attending meetings with Leading Teachers and taking expert advice to evaluate strengths and weaknesses in PE provision.
  • Using local coaches to provide extra-curricular sports clubs accessible to all children from FS2 - Yr 6.
  • Providing time for subject leaders to monitor and evaluate the delivery of PE in school.
  • Participating in local sports networks – competitive and friendly tournaments (Level 1 and Level 2).
  • Develop the use of Playground Leaders – training and equipment - to introduce lunchtime sports for children in KS1 and ensure it is sustainable for future years.
  • To promote links with local providers of sporting activities to try and encourage participation of clubs outside of school hours e.g. Jabs
