Sports Premium 2017-2018
Each school receives extra sports funding through Sports Pupil Premium.
In our school this will amount to £8000 plus £5 per 5–11 year old pupil, which is a total of £9385.
We intend to use the additional funding to improve confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across the school and ensure children have a very good understanding of healthy lifestyles.
We feel that this is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development of children within our school.
The focus for the academic year 2017-2018 is:
•Collaboration with specialist teachers of Physical Education
•CPD for all teaching staff to increase their range of skills
•Improving existing resources/equipment for teaching PE.
•Use of outside agencies to deliver family workshops that promote healthy lifestyles
•Training for support staff including Midday supervisors on active lunchtimes.
•Increasing participation in school sport.
•Employment of external coaches to provide opportunities for children to compete (i.e. in tournaments and fixtures between the local cluster primary schools).
•Buying into existing local sports networks
•Introducing Key movement skills inKS1.
The impact will be measured by:
•A greater confidence in planning and delivery of high quality PE lessons.
•A deeper understanding of the expectations of the new Primary PE curriculum, including a focus on fitness and health.
•Assessments of pupils’ skills and development in PE.
•Increased participation in PE and Sport, including links to local clubs and organisations.
•Organising activities for children and parents around the idea of "Change for Life", this includes healthy eating as well as the importance of physical fitness.
