Sports Premium Funding
The Department for Education website states:
- The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school Headteachers.
- This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
- Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Our overarching objectives to improve PE and sport at Kingsclere CE Primary School are to:
- Continue to improve the quality of PE teaching across the school, ensuring progression and differentiation across the school.
- Improve all teachers’ subject knowledge and teaching skills in PE and sport.
- Continue to improve the quality of swimming teaching across the school.
- Continue to maintain and increase high levels of participation in extra-curricular sporting activities, especially for pupils who do not usually participate.
- Continue to ensure children have opportunities for personal, inter and intra school sports competition.
- Improve and facilitate physical activity in break times.
- Continue to improve the quality of sports and PE resources used in school.
- Ensure all children understand and adopt healthy lifestyles – being aware of and tracking their own physical fitness and wellbeing.
- Increase the activity levels and participation in sports of the less active pupils.
School Use of Sports Premium
In the 2017-2018 financial year, the school received £14,330 sports premium allocation. Click HERE to see how the school is using the funding.
In the 2016-17 financial year received £8,981.00 sports premium allocation.
This money was used to:
- Employ specialist PE coaches to teach PE/Games sessions across all year groups to develop skills in pupils and subject knowledge for teachers which is sustainable.
- To support and target pupils with no/low participation levels in sport to take part in non-competitive, ‘fun’ tournaments.
- Pay for transport to some sporting fixtures (all sports fixtures are free to children).
- Continued employment of swimming specialist to support swimming teaching across the school.
- Training costs of staff to be lifeguard trained.
- Funding to support able pupils in sport to take part in a 6 sessions at the local secondary school culminating with a visit to Bath University and their Sports Science Centre.
Impact of spending to date:
- Significant improvement in the quality of PE teaching across the school. Evidence: Learning walks/lesson observations/pupil conferencing.
- Pupils across the school have been introduced to a wider range of sports and competitions. Evidence: See new PE curriculum on school system and competition list.
- A significant increase in the number of pupils taking part in extra-curricular sports. Evidence: See extra-curricular sports participation tracker.
- Greater opportunities for children to take part in competitive sport (both inter and intra school) including a re-designed and more competitive sports day. Evidence: See range of tournaments/competitions school as entered in 2015/16 and 2016/17 sports calendar.
- All children now tracking and improving their personal fitness through regular fitness events, known as ‘1km Junior Park Run’. Evidence: See PE leader’s records for improvements in pupil times throughout the year.
- PE and sports now higher profile in the school thanks to the PE and sports display board and coverage in the Kingsclere Chronicle. Evidence: See PE display board and Chronicle.
How will we continue to measure the impact on children?
To measure the continuing impact of the sports premium in 2016-17 we will use the following measures:
- How has the quality of teaching in PE and teacher subject-knowledge improved? (evidence base: learning walks and lesson observations)
- How many children participated in an extra-curricular sporting activity i.e. running club, inter-school sports? (evidence base: PE leader records)
- Has there been an increase in teacher confidence in teaching PE? (evidence base: Staff survey summer 2017)
- How effective has the curriculum for PE been in increasing physical activity, ensuring a clear progression in key skills and raising the quality of PE teaching? (evidence base: learning walks and lesson observations / planning scrutiny)
- Are children’s fitness levels continuing to show signs of improvement as a result of ‘1km Junior Park Run’ and other events? (evidence base: PE leader records)
