Evidencing the impact of primary PE and Sport Premium 2017-2018

Middlethorpe Primary Academy

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. The funding is for the period 1 September 2014 – 31 August 2016. This funding is ring fenced to be used for sport specific areas to make an impact in Physical Education and Sport in schools. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

The revised vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is:

VISION All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

OBJECTIVE: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

This funding aims to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport participation and achievement across the whole school.  It will provide new opportunities and activities, ensuring we allow all children as many chances as possible to develop healthy lifestyle choices, have ambition to reach their potential, learn new life skills and build their teamwork and leadership skills.  Through this investment, we will see not only an increase in active participation, but n enjoyment of a wider range of sport and physical education through a range of activities and experiences.

What is the Sports Premium Grant?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years – here at Middlethorpe Primary Academy this will mean around £9,000 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

During the past year Middlethorpe Primary Academy have implemented a number of exciting and sustainable practices that ensure an Olympic sporting legacy is carried on. At Middlethorpe we have employed a specialist coach to ensure the overall running of PE is of a high standard, this coach is also in charge of marketing and running a number of different extracurricular opportunities for the children.

Teachers have received bespoke CPD in PE by the specialised coach to ensure sustainability throughout the coming years and the coach will eventually be phased out as the teachers become more skilled.

Children have the opportunity to take part in a sporting festival throughout the year, these target every single child in the school and provides them with a non competitive look into sports. These events give fantastic opportunities for children to meet new schools and therefore make new friends. We utilise a local coaching company who specialise in these events. Along side these non competitive festivals Middlethorpe actively represents itself in a number of competitions, such as Hockey, Football, Athletics and basketball to name a few.

As well as promoting a healthy respect for sports Middlethorpe have also invested in individual components of sports such as leadership, team work, responsibility and individual expression by providing opportunities like:

At Middlethorpe Primary Academy, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

During the year 2014/2015 this funding was used to:

  • Provide high quality sports teaching for every class
  • Enable all KS1/KS2 to participate in sports festivals across the year
  • Provide additional sporting clubs for children
  • Target children reluctant to take part in physical activity and provide engaging activities
  • Provide opportunities for more able children in PE
  • Design an approach to introducing Sports Leaders to dinnertimes

As a result of this:

  • We provided professional development for teaching staff to continue to improve PE lessons
  • We organised sports festivals to enable all children in KS1 and KS2 to work with other children in local schools
  • We spoke to pupils about organising an even broader range of extra curricular clubs
  • We provided holiday activities that enable pupils to develop sporting skills
  • We further enhanced the use of Sports Leaders during dinnertimes
  • We developed real links with local sports clubs to identify talented pupils
  • We have begun to develop links with international partners to plan opportunities for more able pupils to compete internationally

Impact

PE session

  • PE sessions led by Gravity Red coaches provided CPD for teaching staff
  • Improved teacher and TA subject knowledge
  • The new curriculum objectives were introduced and assessed using class track
  • A new improved assessment system was introduced for all individuals

Collaboration sessions

  • A coach was provided to work in collaboration with the teacher and was used primarily to increase the quality of the PE session but also as a CPD session for teaching staff.
  • The collaboration impacted on the children skills and understanding of the different sports.

Sports Festivals

  • Sports festival were funded and these were held regularly throughout the year.
  • We saw an increase in sports participation and encouraged inclusion for all pupil.
  • Festivals were held at secondary schools, which are our academy’s feeder schools.
  • We identified gifted and talented pupils, which were then signposted to other clubs within the local community.

Competitions/Tournaments

  • The impact of the funding has enabled pupils to show off their talents to other pupils through inter-school competitions and tournaments.
  • The pupils mixed with pupils of the same sports ability from other schools and tournaments including: Boys and girls football, mixed high 5 netball, Pentathlon, Dodgeball and Ultimate Frisbee.

Lunchtime Sports Leaders Program

  • Pupils applied for lunchtime leaders positions. Posters advertise the vacancies and they complete application forms and were interviewed.
  • Year 6 pupils became role models for younger children, which impacted on whole school cohesion.

Before and after School Clubs

  • Participation has increased and is clubs are open to everyone.
  • Children do not have to be an expert in these sports but they do have the chance to take part and increase their self-confidence.

Coach Cover

  • Gravity red provides a coach to cover tournaments and teams attending of site activities. This allows the teacher to remain in the classroom with the majority of the class who are not involved. This also allows the school to attend tournaments they may not have attended
