PE and sport premium for primary schools

The school received £8,900 through the PE and sport funding allocation for 2015/16. Our aim has been to ensure that the funding has been deployed to achieve long term, self sustaining improvement. To that end, we have invested in the professional development of staff as well as providing qualified specialist coaches to work alongside teachers and to offer additional extra-curricular opportunities. We have given more children more opportunities to take part in competitive events (in both intra- and inter-school competition).

We are very proud that our school has been awarded the Silver School Games Mark. This Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to recognise schools for their commitment to the development of competition across the school and into the community.

We have also been awarded the Youth Sport Trust Silver Quality Mark which provides is a nationally recognised kitemark for PE and school sport. Aligned to Ofsted guidance supporting the PE and Sport Premium provision in the following areas is benchmarked:

  • Overall vision for PE, physical activity and school sport
  • Quality of PE
  • Quality of school sport
  • Quality of physical activity
  • Use of PE, physical activity and sport as a catalyst for wider learning.

The PE Subject Leader and Headteacher prepare a PE and Sport Premium Funding Action Plan each year. This sets out the way in which the school intends to invest the premium for the benefit of all pupils. The Plan identifies improvement expected against five key indicators:

  1. engaging all pupils in regular, physical activity
  2. raising the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. increasing the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE
  4. providing a broad experience of a range of sports and activities for all pupils
  5. increasing participation in competitive sport

The impact of the PE and Sport Funding is:

  1. each child receives at least 2 hours PE and sport each week
  2. children are very active in lessons; they enjoy challenges and recognise when they are developing new skills
  3. Sports Leaders implement a rota of activities across all year groups
  4. teachers deliver high quality lessons
  5. TA extends role in delivering PE and supporting teachers
  6. Change for Life Club increases confidence, self-esteem and participation of targeted children
  7. more children participate in competitive sport
  8. the range of sports offered is increased
  9. displays, newsletters and presentations promote and celebrate competition
