PE and Sports Funding
What is the PE and sport premium?
The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. This academic year we will receive £16,000 with an additional payment of £10 per pupil.·
This year (2019/20) our school has used the sports premium funding as detailed below:
- Employed a physical activity leader to work with classes one day per week to plan and deliver high activity sessions with a specific target of the least active (overweight and non-participants). This has also supported the professional development of teaching and non-teaching staff in school.
- Focus on getting children outdoor to learn. Invested in Cross Curricular Orienteering which enables children to be physically active whilst still focussing on Maths and English skills.
- Joined the Heysham High School Sports Partnership to enable as many of our children as possible to enjoy participation in a broad range of competitions. This included in-house sessions for all children in KS1 which were unable to take place due to COVID-19. Many of the competitions were also cancelled due to the pandemic.
- Subsidising extra-curricular clubs to give more children the opportunity to engage in a range of sporting clubs.
- Welcomed coaches from local clubs into school to provide extra opportunities for children at cricket – including Lancashire Cricket Board membership enabling access to competitions, locally and regionally.
- Outdoor education opportunities for year 4 and 5 at Borwick Hall.
- Additional school resources / charges
- Provide staff training in the implementation of the (Sept 2014) National Curriculum for P.E. to ensure that our children continue to access high quality provision. This focus on staff professional development means that we have the capacity to continue to improve in a sustainable way.
- All children have had the opportunity to attend a range of additional clubs and activities (judo, archery, enjoy a ball, multi-skills) and their awareness of physical fitness and health has been enhanced.
- Every Year 4, 5 and 6 child has had access to challenging physical outdoor activities led by a specialist teacher.
- Increased EYFS confidence and subject knowledge in teaching PE
- Classes have access to cross curricular orienteering all year round to increase their activity levels during the day. This is fully mapped out, set up and resourced.
- Children have had increased opportunity to compete at various different events (including those who are less engaged in sport). Although this has been impacted by the current pandemic, an increase in sporting competitions was already evident.
