Sport Premium Funding 

Our aim is for all pupils to enjoy PE and sport both whilst at school and in the future. We also expect children to learn about healthy lifestyles and balanced nutritional meals.

What is Sport Premium Funding?

The funding comes from the government who has continued its investment in Primary PE and sport, through ‘Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation’. The funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on Sport and PE provision. As a school we are required to publish information about how much sport and PE premium funding we receive; how it has been allocated; the impact of this and what we intend to spend it on in the coming financial year ( April 17 – April 18).

The Sport Premium funding for the period April 16 – April 17. The amount allocated was £8,905.

  • Continuation of the ‘Write Dance’ scheme to develop fine and gross motor skills
  • External PE specialist providers to work alongside teachers modelling and demonstrating outstanding practice 
  • Investment in the ‘PE Tuition for Dance’ programme, whereby skilled professionals work alongside the teacher to support and develop practice
  • Training for new staff to ensure they have the confidence, knowledge and skills to deliver good or outstanding lessons
  • Training for all staff to ensure children are being challenged appropriately within PE lessons
  • The purchase of PE mascots (Build a Bear) named after athletes from a range Olympic, Paralympic and non Olympic sports. These class mascots are given out at the whole school assembly to those classes that have remembered to bring in their PE kit for the whole week. The mascots are named after high profile sportsmen and women chosen by the children in order to inspire and motivate.

Impact   

  • Children’s fine and gross motor skill have significantly improved. This has supported children’s writing and fundamental sporting skills such as strength and power.
  • More physical activities outside provided at lunch time (Active Play). This is helping to develop a sporting habit for life.
  • Children have been inspired to try new sporting activities, increasing participation in sport at a grass roots level.
  • Children are receiving good or outstanding lessons, increasing physical fitness and developing understanding of the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
  • 78% of teachers have reported increased knowledge about teaching dance which is having an impact on the children’s enthusiasm and learning.
  • New clubs have encouraged children to try different sports and discover new talents and interests.
