Sports Premium

The PE and Sport Premium is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

Schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6.  Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census each January.

It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance the provision for PE in school. Schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding, ensuring additional and sustainable improvements are made to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

The links below show how the funding was spent last academic year and how we plan to spend the funding this year.

 

Our aims in using our sports funding this year are as follows:

  1. Enable a wide provision of after-school sports clubs to be offered and continue participation in a range of inter school competitions.
  2. Increase lunchtime sports provision.
  3. Support the development of the quality of teaching in PE.
  4. Develop the skills of our new PE leadership team.

Review

Enable a wide provision of after-school sports clubs to be offered and continue participation in a range of inter school competitions.

The SportsPremium has been used to continue to fund the high-level of clubs this year and has continued to provide cover to enable teachers to run sports-based clubs and tournaments for the pupils. This provision has enabled pupils of all ages and abilities to take part in a range of diverse, physical activities which may not be readily available to them elsewhere. This year there have been a noticeable increase in vulnerable pupils attending after school clubs. The variation of skills developed in these clubs have helped pupils within the classroom setting.

Our sports clubs (provided by Planet Education, learning through sport and school staff) have included:

Autumn:

  • Creative movement, football, multi-skills, rugby skills for KS1.
  • Hockey, Boys football, athletics, table tennis, netball (5+6) for KS2.

Spring:

  • Dodgeball, multi-skills, creative movement for KS1.
  • Girls football, netball (5+6), tri- golf (3+4), capture the flag, boy’s football, hockey for KS2).
  • Unfortunately, school closure has affected the running of after school clubs for Summer term.

The school has taken part in regular competitions again including Athletics, Hockey, Netball, Rounders, Tag Rugby, Tri-Golf, Boys’ Football and Girls’ Football. Our most successful tournament was Hockey which our A and B teams went to every month and finished third out of twenty schools. We also have 2 boys who have been selected to attend trials for the Basingstoke District Under-11 Football team aiming to follow on from the successes of one of our pupils from last year.

The school has also taken part in a range of new competitions for both Key Stages which has been a new achievement this year. Previously, we have only participated in KS2 competitions. Our interschool competitions include- Football (KS1), hockey, table tennis (individual and team), and athletics. We were extremely successful in our table tennis tournament with a Year 5 child achieving second place in the county. Due to school closures in 2020, many competitions that were scheduled for Spring 2 – Summer 2 unfortunately were cancelled. 1. Increase lunchtime sports provision. Our Sports Premium Funding has also been continued to fund lunchtime clubs provided by Planet Education each day. This has included a range of sports both on the playground and on the field aimed at either Key Stage 1 or 2. This is the third-year lunch time clubs have been running and the impact continues to be positive.

This has also been enhanced by play leaders. We have used the Sports Premium funding to provide appropriate equipment to allow Year 6 to be more involved in KS1 play and have the opportunity to lead games and sport activities. The children were required to show their passion for sports by applying for this role. To ensure that the children were prepared to provide safe and engaging practice they undertook break time training and meetings.
2. Support the development of the quality of teaching in PE. We have been able to redesign the curriculum and vision statement to a more skills-based approach being embedded into themes for the year that match our school ethos and values. As a result of training, the teachers’ understanding of physical education has developed and therefore our school curriculum has a different approach to the teaching and learning of Physical Education. To ensure consistency throughout the school, a new curriculum map of skills development was made which will allow teachers to understand the progression of skills in Physical Education throughout the whole primary phase. This is a key element of high quality teaching. Due to circumstances post March 2020, our school has not yet been able to provide further training for members of staff to develop quality of teaching and understanding of the new curriculum throughout. This will be picked up once school return more fully. 3. Develop the skills of our new PE leadership team.

The new PE leadership team is spread across KS1, L-KS2 and U-KS2, allowing for a variety of skills and contribution from a range of experiences in different age groups. Multiple twilight sessions have built up a stronger understanding of outstanding leadership in PE. These sessions have also been in line with the new OFSTED ‘deep dive’ outlines, enabling us to feel confident with the different perspective of subject leadership.

As we understand the importance of the PE curriculum being personalised to our school and our values, many discussions were had with the Hampshire PE development manager. This provided a clear insight in what strong Physical Education looks like in practice and what it could look like in our school specifically. We used this guidance to form our subject vision and skills progression map.

To encourage a smooth progression in Physical Education from Primary into Secondary schools, we collaborated with other Primary schools in Basingstoke as well as Secondary. This has helped to strengthen the consistency across schools and key stages which will promote strong foundations for Secondary Physical Education.

To ensure we use Sports Premium Funding effectively, we will:

  1. Develop NQT CPD through the focused PECS programme. Each NQT staff member will have a dedicated session every Friday for the entire year.
  2. Enable a wide provision of after-school sports clubs to be offered and continue participation in a range of inter school competitions.
  3. Increase lunchtime sports provision.
  4. Raise attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2

The total funding is £21,410.

Review of Impact for 2018-2019

1. Develop NQT CPD through the focused PECS programme. Each NQT staff member will have a dedicated session every Friday for the entire year.

Some of our sports premium has been used to fund PECS training for each NQT staff member in school this year. PECS (PE Curriculum Support programme) has been provided by our selected sports provider, to increase skill and confidence specific to each teacher’s own needs. The funding allowed for the mentors to be in school with us each Friday afternoon. Two NQT teachers have worked alongside the PECS mentors for the entire year, covering a range of training and development opportunities including demonstrating and teaching good practice, employing proven planning and assessment methods, and coaching specific skills that teachers may not feel as confident in teaching. After each unit of PECS, teachers are asked to review the impact of their mentoring.

2. Enable a wide provision of after-school sports clubs to be offered and continue participation in a range of inter-school competitions.

The Sports Premium has also been used to fund even more clubs this year, as well to provide cover to enable teachers to run sports-based clubs and tournaments for the pupils. Through the funding, children have had the opportunity to access a range of sports clubs after school every day this year.

Our sports clubs (provided by Planet Education and school staff) have included: KS1 Multi-skills, KS2 Capture the Flag, KS1 Gym, KS2 Dodgeball, KS2 Girls’ Football, Year 5/6 Boys’ Football, Year 5/6 JRock, Year 5/6 Hockey, KS1 Dodgeball, Year 4/5/6 Netball, Year 3/4 Tri-Golf, KS2 Athletics, Year 3/4  Tag Rugby, KS2 Strictly Come Dancing, KS1 Racket Skills, Year 5/6 Tag Rugby, KS1 Athletics, KS1 Cricket, KS2 Cricket, KS2 Tennis, Year 5/6 Rounders. Clearly, there has been a lot of opportunities of offer to both KS1 and KS2 and many of the clubs have run multiple times.

Percentage of children who attended at least 1 sports after-school club in Autumn term = 33%. Percentage of children who attended at least 1 sports after-school club in Spring term = 35%. Percentage of children who attended at least 1 sports after-school club in Summer term = 32%.

This year, the school has taken part in a variety of competitions again including Athletics, Hockey, Netball, Rounders, Tag Rugby, Tri-Golf, Boys’ Football and Girls’ Football. Our most successful tournament was Hockey which our A and B teams went to every month and finished third out of twenty schools. We also have 2 boys who have been selected to attend trials for the Basingstoke District Under-11 Football team aiming to follow on from the successes of one of our pupils from last year.

3. Increase lunch time sports provision.

Our Sports Premium Funding has also been used to fund lunchtime clubs provided by Planet Education each day. This has included a range of sports both on the playground and on the field aimed at either Key Stage 1 or 2.

Percentage of children who attended at least 1 sports lunch time club = 64%.

This the second year lunch time clubs have been running and the impact has been incredibly positive. Children have commented on their keenness to attend, their enjoyment for the range of activities provided and how it lowers any anxieties of having nobody to play with.

4. Raise attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2.

Using the sports premium funding, all 90 children in our current Year 6 cohort were able to attend swimming lessons in Year 4. Out of these 90, 71 children successfully met the requirements. The premium was therefore also used to provide additional top-up swimming lessons to the 19 pupils who were not able to meet the national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety after the delivery of core swimming and water safety lessons. By the end of these top up lessons, a further 14 children successfully passed.

Overall 85/90 children met the swimming requirement = 94%.

The Sports Premium funding has also been used to buy new much-needed equipment vital for PE lessons as well as resources for our Sports Day which involved all children in much more activity.

We have well spent above our allocation of Sports Premium money to ensure PE provision meets its full potential.

To ensure we use Sports Premium Funding effectively, we will:

  1. Develop staff CPD through the focused PECS programme. Each staff member will have this opportunity for at least 6 weeks across the year.
  2. Enable a wide provision of after-school sports clubs to be offered and continue participation in a range of inter school competitions.
  3. Increase lunch time sports provision.

 

Review of Impact for 2017-2018

Develop staff CPD through the focused PECS programme. Each staff member will have this opportunity for at least 6 weeks across the year.

Most of our sports premium has been used to fund PECS training for each staff member across the school this year. PECS (PE Curriculum Support programme) has been provided by our selected sports provider, Planet Education, to increase skill and confidence specific to each teacher’s own needs. The funding allowed for the Planet Education mentors to be in school with us each afternoon of every week. Most teachers have worked alongside the PECS mentors for at least 12 weeks, covering a range of training and development opportunities including demonstrating and teaching good practice, employing proven planning and assessment methods, and coaching specific skills that teachers may not feel as confident in teaching. After each unit of PECS, teachers are asked to review the impact of their mentoring. According to the data collected from staff questionnaires, this has had a significantly positive impact on teachers’ confidence and ability on all aspects of teaching PE.

 

Enable a wide provision of after-school sports clubs to be offered and continue participation in a range of inter-school competitions.

The Sports Premium has also been used to fund even more clubs this year, as well to provide cover to enable teachers to run sports-based clubs and tournaments for the pupils. Through the funding, children have had the opportunity to access a range of sports clubs after school every day this year.

Our sports clubs (provided by Planet Education and school staff) have included: Hockey, Multi-activity, Dodgeball, Girls’ Football, Tennis, Netball, Football, Tag Rugby, Rounders, Athletics, Boxer-cise, Cricket, Gymnastics and Racket Skills. Many clubs have run multiple times.

Percentage of children who attended at least 1 sports after-school club = 80% (49% last year).

This is a significant improvement on our previous years due to the extra clubs that have been provided by Planet Education.

This year, the school has taken part in a variety of competitions again including Athletics, Tag Rugby, Football and Cricket. Our most successful tournament was Hockey which our A and B teams went to every month and finished third out of twenty schools. We also have 2 boys who have been selected to attend trials for the Basingstoke District Under-11 Football team aiming to follow on from the successes of one of our pupils from last year.

Increase lunch time sports provision

Our Sports Premium Funding has also been used to fund lunchtime clubs provided by Planet Education each day. This has included a range of sports both on the playground and on the field aimed at either Key Stage 1 or 2.

Percentage of children who attended at least 1 sports lunch time club = 43%.

This the first year lunch time clubs have been running and the impact has been incredibly positive. Children have commented on their keenness to attend, their enjoyment for the range of activities provided and how it lowers any anxieties of having nobody to play with.

Planet Education also delivered a Sports Leaders training programme for a group of Year 5 children for 12 weeks. They will continue to use their training next year to provide play opportunities for the younger children as our school ‘Play Leaders’.

The Sports Premium funding has also been used to buy new much-needed equipment vital for PE lessons as well as resources for our new style Sports Day which involved all children in much more activity. We have spent above our allocation of Sports Premium money to ensure PE provision meets its full potential.
