Sports Premium Grant Report October 2017

 

What is the Sports Premium?

The government’s funding of the Sports Premium to school is remaining for the foreseeable future. It is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

 

Each school has received £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year and our allocation was £8395 for the academic year 16/17. For 17/18 academic year, the sports funding has been increased to £10 per pupil in addition to a lump sum of £16000. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.

 

 

Purpose of the funding

All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how this is done. At South Molton Community Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

 

South Molton believes in this money being used to create a sustainable increase in the quality of sport / PE teaching, which will benefit the children for many years.

 

 

Impact for 2016 / 17

We are continuing to use the money to part fund a dedicated PE teacher as the positive impact of this is apparent across the whole school, both within the curriculum and in our extra-curricular activities. The dedicated PE/sports teacher provides staff training to raise the standards in PE across the whole school, and also as the sport co-ordinator, ensures an excellent provision of equipment, facilities and out-of-school opportunities for every child. Our diverse sporting events ensures that every child in school has three hours of PE/sports per week within curriculum time. In addition this funding has helped to create and sustain sports at lunchtimes and after school: the overall effect of this increase in sporting activities has shown a marked improvement in pupils’ behaviour and enthusiasm for work in the classroom as well as sport. It has allowed the children who may not be high achievers in the classroom a chance to succeed in other areas.

 

The funding has also been used to offer extended swimming lessons for pupils. By training and using qualified staff, we can now offer swimming for more sessions resulting in a big increase in children now being able to swim. During the spring and summer terms, just over 110 pupils were provided with quality swimming lessons resulting in 65% of our pupils being taken for lessons, now being able to swim.

 

Cycling has also been a focus during the last year, with bikeability and balanceabilty sessions being offered to pupils. The funding has allowed us to offer learn to cycle sessions for all pupils in KS2, with now more than 90% of pupils being able to ride a bike which is an increase from 75% at the start of the summer term.

 

Our competitive sports with other schools and regional events has increased greatly with teams of pupils participating in many sports including tennis tournaments, aquathlons, tag rugby, football and kwick cricket. We are also hosting a regional football league. The school has also just been awarded a silver level in the ‘Games Award’.

 

Our focus for the coming year is on the least active children, to boost their health and confidence, by providing extra physical activity.

 

Overall the children’s confidence has improved tremendously as has their team work and sportsmanship. The lasting impact is helping to develop well-rounded pupils with a sense of achievement, fairness and high expectations for their own future.

This is a major incentive for parents to raise their children’s participation and interest in sports and games. This is expected to continue while we have this funding.
