Sports Premium

PRIMARY PE AND SPORT PREMIUM 2016-2017

Background

The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since 2013/14 to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport participation for all pupils. The purpose of the funding is to help schools make additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Allocation

Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census date. Based on a full year all schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.  Smaller schools (with fewer than 16 eligible pupils) will receive £500 per pupil. The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils.

Academic Year 2016-17

Funding:


The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following Objective and Indicators,
to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools:

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

Deanery CE Primary School received £9,795 of PE and sport premium in the financial year 2016 -17. This money was used in a number of different ways to support the provision of improved quality sports and PE for all pupils:

How we are spending the funding:

Continuing Professional Development

At Deanery CE Primary School, we are committed to continuously improving the quality of PE teaching. We are fortunate to have a trained sports coach as a teacher who provides in house PE development to all of our teaching staff. This supports us in raising the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole school improvement and also provide teachers with increased confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport.

Curriculum and Equipment

During the year we have invested in new dance resources to enhance our curriculum. Our CPD programme empowers staff to focus on key aspects of PE and School Sport and increases their knowledge and confidence of individual activities within PE and enables them to teach outstanding PE lessons. The variety of resources increases the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles.
During 2016-17 we have further broadened our range of sports and activities offered to all pupils by introducing new sporting activities to the curriculum and have invested in ballet lessons for every pupil and have introduced Balance-ability for our Reception children.

We are also investing in new and varied topic related PE resources to encourage pupils to participate in a wider range of opportunities to access new PE activities in order to develop a range of personal physical skills. Pupils will have more opportunities to enjoy and succeed in PE as well as be stimulated and challenged. We are supporting the least active children by purchasing specific equipment to help them to access the curriculum and develop their skills. We have also purchased a range of sporting equipment for safe play at lunchtime allowing children to be physically active during playtime.

Competitions

Deanery CE Primary School has a commitment to providing children with a diverse and interesting range of competitions that are accessible for all age ranges and abilities. Through our partnership with the Wilson Stuart Active Society we have been able to increase pupils’ participation in the School Games programme and we have also extended the range of sporting competitions that we have entered. Being part of the Wilson Stuart Active Society has enabled us to participate in a number of level 2 and 3 competitions across Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham. We have also reduced our training costs and will have opportunities to work collaboratively with other schools across the partnership.

During 2016/17 we have entered 11 competitions in 6 different sports, so far, with 35% of our pupils participating in these events (Across the whole academic year of 2015/16 we entered 24 competitions in 9 different sports with 73% of pupils having an opportunity to participate). We have continued to increase our success in these inter-school competitions and during the year we were successful in winning the “City Finals” for Y5/6 indoor athletics. In the Summer of 2016 we also won the Rounder’s and Quad kids “City finals” as part of the Birmingham School Games. Our success is due to the continuing investment we have made in sport and the variety of after school clubs that we offer all of our children.


Extra-Curricular Activities

Deanery CE Primary School has used our PE and sport premium funding to create and develop new extra-curricular clubs which are aimed at encouraging children of all age ranges and abilities to take part in a before or after-school club. We provide a range of free after-school sports clubs such as Athletics, Gymnastics, Boys and Girls Football, Netball, Cheerleading, and we also use high quality sports coaches to teach extra-curricular clubs such as Tennis, Zumba and Dance. We have seen a huge increase in participation in these clubs and more children are taking part in competitive activities due to the increased number of clubs available.

The funding has had the following impact during 2016/17:
• An extended variety and range of extra-curricular clubs provided increasing take up
• Curriculum enrichment – using PE to enrich other subjects
