This is our action plan 2017/18 for making effective use of our sports premium funding. These are the actions we intend to take to encourage our pupils to be active and to provide our pupils with the opportunity to achieve their personal best.
The impact of the funding 2014-15.
Last years sports premium funding had an effect on the teaching of P.E and staff confidence in this, which impacted the children’s activity and fitness levels.
Percentage of children in each year group that are working at secure levels in PE:
Present yeargroup 2014 2015
2 91 93
3 79 88
4 90 83
5 81 86
6 84 91
(7) (91) ( 95)
The standard of teaching P.E improved and is consistent, this is based on lesson observations and data from across the school.
There have been continued sporting successes in school this year including another win for our year 6 in the swimming gala and our cricket team coming 2nd in the borough. This is due to improved teaching of skills as well as enthusiasm, hard work and competitive spirit from the children.
There are again a large proportion of children in school (around 150) attending after school, sports based clubs, including a larger number of girls than before.
We have created more opportunities for girls to partake in competitive sports, including a lunchtime netball club which is regularly attended by 20 girls. We are also looking forward to having our girls football team and a girls cricket team during this year.
After training and a staff meeting, Orienteering skills are now being taught and embedded across KS1 and KS2. Teachers reported high levels of enthusiasm and confidence among their pupils toward the end of last year.
Since introducing new equipment and variety of activities to lunchtimes and playtimes on the field, there has been an increase in active children. We hope this will continue this year on the playground when we have introduced the new zoned areas.
The impact of the funding 2013-14:
P.E and physical activity are now seen as high profile across the school and the standard of teaching and the skills being taught have been raised.
The amount of children taking part and accessing P.E lessons fully has increased across the school.
Over 120 children in school have taken part in a range of sports clubs including:
Dance, Gymnastics, Mixed football and Cricket.
We have entered the several competitions during this period including a swimming gala, cricket tournaments and football tournaments. The teams for these events have proved very successful and have been achieving better results than they have previously.
95% of children by the end of year 6 were able to swim 25m or more.
Cricket coaches worked with children in years 3 and 4 to improve cricket skills which increased interest and participation in the cricket club.
All children across the school are taking part in sports day and all children including those with special educational needs are accessing a P.E curriculum.
Resources to teach a wider range of skills and sports have been purchased and are being used effectively in lessons.
