What is Sport Premium?
Primary schools have been given a ‘PE and sports Premium’ funding to develop Physical Education and school sports during the academic year 2016-17. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
As a school we must spend the additional funding on improving our provision of PE and sport. We have had the freedom to choose how we feel our money is best spent. Over the course of previous years, we have analysed the impact of our spending to inform our future plans.
How much funding do we receive?
The funding is calculated by the number of primary aged children between the ages of 5 and 11 years. All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. This equated to £8915 for our school.
How will we spend the funding 2016-17?
This year the funding will be used to purchase the Active Maths programme (£535) as well as target social and emotional needs for pupils that will benefit pupils both in and out of the classroom. This support takes the form of 1 free after school club (£770) and lunchtime playleader support.
We continue to buy into Youth Sport Trust membership through the Streetly Academy Primary School PE and Sport Development Network. This network provides inter school competition, high quality CPD and support for our School PE and Sports co-ordinator. (£1000)
We intend to purchase replacement and additional sports equipment (£250).
We will continue to work with Starlands coaching (£6370) to
- implement a broad strategy of inclusion, participation and excellence in sport
for all students.
- Provide measurable impact and relevant efficient data for progress.
- Provide enhanced support for pupils, staff and whole school development.
What effect has the premium had on pupil's PE and sport participation and attainment?
- 72% of children in the school have taken part in an after-school sports club ranging from dance to soccercise to KS1 ABC club. (correct as of 14/03/17)
- Our children have taken part in a number of competitions throughout the year. Achieving success in Dodgeball and Swimming in addition to successful competition in a number of other sports.
- All after school club offers have been streamlined to allow for a number of opportunities for each key stage throughout the year. This offer has allowed all children a number of chances at accessing free sports clubs throughout the year which have been complimentary to the competitions we have entered.
- A number of children have been encouraged to achieve the outcome of ‘excellence in sport for all students’ as a result of the funding providing staff with the key skills and abilities to spot excellence within the PE curriculum and the confidence to pursue this development.
How will we make these improvements sustainable?
- Working with Starlands coaching all key staff and support staff involved in PE and Sport have been audited to find out their training needs.
- Continuous Professional Development has been planned to meet individual staff needs and delivered throughout the school year via twilight training sessions, observing Starlands staff delivering at after school clubs and team teaching within PE sessions.
- A continuous cycle of observe-guide-encourage has allowed for evaluation of any training given and follow up training if required.
- Staff have been upskilled and feel more confident to deliver a range of PE and Sport activities.
- The PE curriculum has been rewritten around 3 themes - I can be fit and healthy, I can work in a team and I can be creative.
