SPORTS PUPIL PREMIUM 2018 to 2019

 In 2013 The Government announced that it would be 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 head teachers. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport.

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of Frant Primary School. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, unity, cooperation and kindness for themselves and others.

In the autumn of 2017 the Government announced that it would be doubling the amount of Sports Funding. We are therefore delighted to be able to use the £16860 received for 2018-19 sport premium funding to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the ways listed below.

HOW WILL WE BE SPENDING THE SPORTS FUNDING AND WHO WILL BENEFIT?

BUDGET - £16860 (2018-19)

We will use the funding to:

  • Provide a PE trained teacher to teach alongside the class teacher for development opportunities enabling quality teaching and learning for all children. The PE teacher will take weekly PE lessons with each class.  The class teachers are expected to support and observe in these lessons to improve their own practice.  All children will therefore benefit from specialist sports teaching to improve their skills, their confidence and abilities to take part in a range of sporting activities.
  • Allow the PE trained teacher to support the P.E Coordinator in liaising with schools and organising other events across a range of disciplines throughout the year and across the year groups.
  • To hold intra school events for all the sports taught throughout year within the PE curriculum.  This creates more opportunities for competition for all pupils
  • Purchase new sports equipment to be used in P.E lessons and our after school clubs.
  • Enable increased participation in competitive sports events with other primary schools in the local area
  • Increase participation by including clubs for non-traditional sports
  • Train play leaders in year 6 to lead physical activities during the lunch hour (run by Uplands)
  • Continue to offer a wide range and number of school activities to pupils across the school (Netball, Football, Cross Country Running, Athletics, Tag rugby Hockey, Tennis, Cricket, Swimming, Dance and Gymnastics)

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. Our overall aim is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children in traditional and non-traditional sports.  The PE Coordinator and specialist PE Teacher will continue to review provision and its impact termly, making recommendations and changes to class teachers and the SLT.

 

HOW THE IMPACT WILL BE MEASURED:

1. Teachers will continue to develop their planning and teaching to ensure that P.E is taught to the highest standards.

2.  Monitoring the uptake of places in school club P.E activities.  We expect to see an increase in percentage uptake. Children will feel more confident to participate.

- 2017 to 2018: in KS2 88% young people are engaged in extracurricular sporting activity every week, with many participating in more than one activity.

- School newsletters include regular reports on every sporting event and competition entered which include a child’s achievements at both an individual and team level.  This information is also available on the website. 

- Sports award assembly at the end of school year for all parents to attend.  School celebrates and recognises achievement in competitions. Individual cups are awarded for a range of attributes which include; commitment, achievement, effort, sportsmanship, development and attitude.

- Sports noticeboard on the school wall outside of school as well as an annual display at the sports award assembly.

4. Pupils will be keen to participate in sport activities with other schools.

IMPACT OF PREVIOUS SPORTS FUNDING

Desired impact of spending

Review – April 2019

Teachers will feel more confident in developing and planning P.E to the highest standards

Monitoring shows teachers are more confident with their P.E teaching and are continuing to improve their practice in a range of different sports – including umpiring

The purchase of proper equipment has enabled individual sports to be taught instead of having a multi-skilled approach. This has included:  short tennis balls, cricket wind balls, cricket bats, cricket stumps and 4 football posts.

The   PE specialist teacher supports the classroom teacher once a week during a PE lesson.

The children now all learn a much wider variety of sports within PE.  The curriculum plan is assessed regularly by the specialist and the subject coordinator and changed accordingly as necessary.  Currently the children learn football, netball, tag rugby, hockey, educational gymnastics, dance, cricket, tennis and athletics.

Monitoring the uptake of places in school club P.E activities.  We expect to see an increase in percentage uptake. Children will feel more confident to participate.

 

School run after school clubs

  • Netball club is held for 5 terms after school and has regularly been attended by 28 children.
  • Games skills club has run for 6 terms and has included dodge ball, hockey and cricket.  Includes children from years 1 to 6

 

School run lunchtime clubs

  • Games club is run and any child in year 5 and 6 can participate and children within years 3 and 4 are invited if they have shown the potential during class to perform alongside the year 5 and 6 children.
  • Cross Country – 40 children in KS2 all years
  • Hockey – 34 children in KS2 all years
  • Rugby – 22 children – upper KS2
  • Cricket – 26 children – upper KS

 

Other clubs paid for by the parents include Football, dance and tennis and involve a range of children from all years.

 

Outside links with clubs – The specialist PE teacher provides links with outside clubs for the children and regularly promotes involvement outside of school by talking to the children, giving out flyers or talking with  parents.

 

Currently we have links with 3 netball clubs, 1 football club, 1 hockey club, 1 rugby club, 1 athletics club and 2 cricket clubs. 

School newsletters include regular reports on every sporting event and competition entered which include a child’s achievements at both an individual and team level.  This information is also available on the website. 

 

A report is written after every event and celebrated in weekly Friday assembly – not just the achievement but the training and selection of each child involved.  A special mention is always given to at least 2 children for anything outstanding whether that be ability, behaviour, improvement, commitment etc.

Sports awards assembly has run for 2 years (held towards the end of term 6) and we now have a range of cups donated by the Specialist PE teacher.  Reports of all matches and competitions are on display.

Dance – a dance performance is given to the parents by each class to show the results of their term’s work.

School Games Sports Mark Award is applied for each year.  We currently hold ‘Gold’ level (very few schools achieve this level).

Assessment of the children’s fitness levels from a cardio- vascular angle.  Twice a year the children are assessed – once in September and once in July.  The results are collated and reviewed by the subject coordinator and the specialist PE teacher.  We receive very positive feedback from the children who have all wanted to see their progress.

3. Pupil Voice – Audit of children’s confidence and understanding of PE skills throughout the year

The children are highly motivated in their PE sessions.  100% of KS2 children enjoyed sports day and associated activities leading up to it.  

Attainment across the school has been raised because of this.

 

The children are able to recognise their strengths and show greater determination and resilience to improve their own skill level.  They appreciate and understand the impact of sport for their own wellbeing and health.

Pupils will be keen to participate in sport activities with other schools
