PE and Sports Premium

Sports premium

Overview

Our allocation of funding for 2018/19 was £17,500. Based on the continued positive impact of coaching, provided by Life Leisure, during the previous three academic years, the decision was made to continue with this resource – in part – but to continue our improvement of the school grounds and lunchtime provision.

How funding has been used and its impact

  • A large percentage of the funding (£7754.87) has been used to complete our development of the school playground by installing an Evo Excel surface with 5mm shock-pad. 
  • Impact: The surfaced area provides a safer playing environment for children during curriculum time and recreational time.  Due to the school field being unsuitable for whole class lessons during a large proportion of the autumn and spring terms, the new playing surface guarantees that games lessons can be consistently taught; this ability to teach a progressive series of lessons enables pupils to build on their learnt skills each week and has helped to enhance levels of achievement.

The following survey shows the impact that re-surfacing the playground has had on children on children taking part in physical activity at break-times. Every class shows a significant increase in pupil participation and all the KS2 classes have 100% of their children using the large pen on a regular basis.  The slightly lower numbers in KS1 could be explained by them having less access to the large pen during morning break.

  • We have continued with our subscription to the Stockport School Sports Partnership (£1,100) – now known as SHAPES.
  • Impact: The school sports partnership provide subject specialist advice to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in Physical Education.  It also provides ongoing professional development and training for staff and access to a wide range of SSSP competitions for pupils.  The access to all Sports Partnership competitions has allowed us to increase the number of children participating in competitive sport for the first time.
  • Due to the positive impact that it has had on our children, we have also employed a sports coach for 1 full day a week (£4,400). The same coach works alongside the class teacher - from Reception to Year 6 - teaching games; trains Y6 playleaders, Y5 skipping monitors and runs intra-school competitions for KS2 during lunchtimes; and runs an afterschool netball club for KS1.
  • Impact: Children have had access to a wider range of clubs both at lunchtime and after school.  The intra-school netball competition has allowed more children to experience competitive, sporting activity and develop their skills of teamwork and respect.  The continuation of Y6 playleaders and Y5 skipping monitors has increased the opportunity for children to take on a leadership role.  As well as providing professional development opportunities for teachers, the use of the same coach across the school allows continuity and progression of skills throughout the school.
  • Subscription to PE Passport (£400) has allowed us to develop our planning and assessment strategies; it has also provided us with a valuable tool for evidencing and monitoring progress.
  • Impact: The use of PE Passport builds teacher understanding of progression in skills in PE enabling them to plan for more informed opportunities to support pupil outcome in PE as it provides evidence of pupils’ progress across individual lessons and throughout a longer block of lessons. The app allows teachers to assess pupil progress and ability; provide timely feedback to pupils; and to gather evidence to share with parents and peers. It also enable pupils to better understand their own learning and development through visual feedback.
  • Subscription to the South Area Sports Association and Schools’ Cross Country leagues are an important use of our Sport Premium, together with competition medals (£340.16 in total).
  • Impact: Entry into these competitions has provided an ever increasing number of pupils to participate in competitive sport and taught them important values of teamwork and working hard in order to improve.  Our achievements in this area have been significant and we regularly have 30% of all KS2 pupils competing in these leagues.
  • We continue to use our Sports Premium to buy new equipment for physical education across the school (£1,743.17). This year, we are particularly focusing on our provision at playtimes; including ways to access equipment.
  • Impact: Ensuring the children have access to the correct equipment is essential for helping them learn and develop their skills.  It is also important – from a health and safety aspect – that children aren’t using equipment that is damaged; we have, therefore, used some of the Sports Premium to replace damaged equipment.  The impact of providing better access to equipment at lunchtime - and to increase the variety of this equipment – has increased the number of children participating in physical activity during these times (see survey details above).

Future Spending

We intend to use the remainder of our Sports Premium (£1761.8) to continue to develop the provision that we provide during recreational time.  Previous experience has shown that the initial impact of new initiatives can diminish over time if they haven’t been sufficiently embedded.
