PE Sports Premium

 

What is the PE Sports Grant?

The government is currently providing additional monies by the way of sports premium,  to each primary school every academic year to provide new, substantial sport funding.  This funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.  The purpose of the funding is that schools will have to spend the sport funding improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

 

Holden Clough Primary School and Sports Grant

Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11).  The grant is paid in two installments:

Financial Year

Academic

Year:

Payment Date Amount received
2016- 17 PE and Sport Grant (Installment 1) September 2016 to March 2017 After 29 October 2016 (LEA discretion) £5201
2016-17 PE and Sport Grant (Installment 2) April to August 2017 After 29 April 2017 (LEA Discretion) £3715

 

Purpose of Funding

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • - Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, you can use your funding to:

  • -Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • -Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • -Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • -Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • -Run sport competitions
  • -Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • -Run sports activities with other schools

Impact of spending of Sport Premium/PE Grant 2016/17:

 

Membership to Tameside SSP

This has allowed children exposure to a wide range of sports at a competitive level. Through this they have been exposed to the opportunity to possibly take up new sports/activities outside of school whilst still developing their skills through such competition.  This has led to the majority of all Key Stage 2 children representing the school in a sporting capacity.  It has also allowed children to see first hand the importance of teamwork and communication. This partnership also allows for Physical Education CPD opportunities which are to be utilised over the course of the year by teaching staff whilst also providing the PE Co-orindator to attend network meetings where good practice and models of PE and everything entailed in the subject, are shared.

 

Equipment

After a full audit of school sports and PE equipment was conducted at the conclusion of the last academic year, it was clear that some equipment was no longer fit for purpose and that other equipment needed to be replenished.  It also became evident that in order to give children the opportunity to take part in a 'broader range of activities' we needed the equipment to support this.  To this effect, purchases were made to support the delivery of skills associated with games such as volleyball and tennis in particular.  The former of which we ended up placing third out of 55 schools in the Tameside SSP competition.  There was also a need to improve the outdoor provision when it came to break time and lunchtime, especially after we moved to a new building last academic year.  

 

Installation of gymnastics rainbow frame

We wanted to provide our children with the best possible provision when it came to gymnastics in order to further our skills in this particular area of the physical education.  Since moving a new building, we have had very little in terms of gymnastic equipment to aid this.  Therefore, we purchased a new gymnastics frame to develop children's flexibility, agility and confidence in particular when it comes to gymnastics.  This has resulted in some of our children representing the borough in the annual 'Greater Manchester Winter Games.' 

 

Team Representation Kit

In order to allow children to fully participate in Tameside SSP amd Tameside FA competitions, it is important to equip them with school kit.  This allows children to feel a real sense of pride and belonging when representing the school.  The majority of this spend was used to replace existing kit from last, hence why the spend is in this area is not as substantial as the academic year 2015/16. 

 

'I-Moves Dance' Scheme of work

After consulting staff last year, it was evident that many staff felt least confident in the teaching of this area of the curriculum.  They explained they found the planning, delivery and assessment of dance to be somewhat tricky and were struggling to link particular dance routines to their respective topics.  Therefore, after examining the topics for each year group, we found a dance scheme that offered routines linking with these topics, providing planning and detailed assessments that easily married up with our school assessment policy.  

Spending of Sport Premium 2015/16

 

During last years school year we were allocated a sports premium of a total of £8916.  A break down of expenditure last year can be found in the table below, along with the impact of such expenditure.

Impact of spending of Sport Premium/PE Grant 2015/16:

 

Membership to Tameside SSP

This has allowed children exposure to a wide range of sports at a competitive level. Through this they have been exposed to the opportunity to possibly take up new sports/activities outside of school whilst still developing their skills through such competition.  This has led to well over 90% of all Key Stage 2 children representing the school in a sporting capacity.  It has also allowed children to see first hand the importance of teamwork and communication.  This partnership also allows for PE CPD opportunities which are to be utilised over the course of the year by teaching staff whilst also providing the PE Co-orindator to attend network meetings where good practice and models of PE and everything entailed in the subject, are shared.  

 

Membership to Tameside FA

As with the membership to the Tameside School Sports Partnership, this has again allowed children, both boys and girls to partake in competitive sport and a good level.  Through this children have learnt what is to win and loose and realised the importance of striving for your best. Such membership has provided a whole host of fixtures including full participation in a number of cup competitions. 

 

Equipment

This has assisted in the delivery of higher quality PE lessons with equipment being readily available and usable.  Children are getting full use of equipment, which is also being used during after school and extra-curricular clubs.  The purchase of basic resources such as footballs, netballs and rugby balls has allowed children to access sports they previously may not have been able to.  

 

Staff & Children Spare Kit

The purchasing of such kit has allowed staff to model to children the high standards now required in PE.  With staff getting changed into kit before lessons, it promotes the message that Physical Education is a vital part of the curriculum and all children should be bringing the correct PE kit in order to take part in a similar vein to which the teacher does.  

 

Funds spent on spare kit ensures all children could take an active role in PE lessons whilst also allowing teachers to keep track of which children may be forgetting kit on a regular basis.  

 

Team Representation Kit

It was decided given the condition of existing kit within school that new team kit was needed for representation at competitions/sporting events/fixtures.  With the sheer volume of children now taking part in sporting competition a total of 16 full kits were needed - enough for two teams to represent at one competition.  This is line with school colours and is complete with the new school logo.  Children have commented on how they feel proud to wear the kit, and the kit has helped the children develop a sense of identity and belonging when wearing the kit, much similar to the notion of a school uniform.  In addition, new cheerleading kits were also bought which will last the school for years to come. 

 

Scheme of work

It was agreed that a new, fresh, innovative scheme of work was needed to assist teachers in the delivery of high quality Physical Education.  The scheme of work we purchased is renown as being one of the most effective and popular choices when it comes to the delivery of primary school PE.  Indeed staff have already commented on how influential this scheme of work has been in the brief time period they have spent using it. 

 

Road to Rio Dance Workshop

This day was a whole school dance workshop aimed at raising the awareness of the Olympics in Rio.  In an attempt to try and encourage participation in dance in particular, each class performed a dance from a country taking part in the Olympics.  As a result, children all had a knowledge of the olympic games and were wanting to involve themselves in olympic sports.  This took place as part of National School Sports week. 

 

Transport

The impact of paying for transport was to ensure that all children hall full access to sporting competitions in the first instance and transport to a trip to Old Trafford cricket ground in the second.  These allowed for children to actively participate in competitive and sport and see live county cricket, again as part of National School Sport week and Lancashire CCC schools open day.  The aim of this was to give children something to aspire to, and develop an awareness of the effort and application that is needed in order to compete at the highest level. 

 

Medals for sports day

These were purchased to ensure every child was rewarded for taking part in sports day and re-enforcing that hard work deserves rewarding.Different medals were also purchased for individual/team winners, showing that sport is competitive and the best athlete on the day emerges victorious.  

 

Future aims for PE and Sport Premium (2016/17):

-Further CPD – Development of teaching and learning in PE across all key stages

-More equipment/resources to assist in delivery of PE.

-Improvements in drainage of school field

-Dance sheme of work
