The Use and Impact of Sports Premium 2015/2016 and 2016/2017
The Government had continued to provide additional funding to Primary schools in order to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport.
Vision: All pupils leaving Primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Pocklington C.E.V.C. Infant School
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per Key Stage One pupil.
For the academic year Sept 2014 – August 2015 (based on 111 Key Stage One pupils) we received an amount of £8555.00 (see Sports Premium Budget Information)
For September 2015 to August 2016 we will have a sum of £8652.36
For September 2016 to August 2017 we will have the sum of approximately £8625
How will we be spending the Sports Premium funding:
We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all pupils and encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and to enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils.
We have undertaken a PE and School Sport audit and are continuing to develop our Sports Premium plan to raise standards and afterschool participation levels. Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed, is that it must be used so that:
• all children benefit regardless of sporting ability (this includes Foundation Stage children)
• children are given the opportunity to compete/participate in appropriate interschool events with other schools when possible
• staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
• some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints e.g. after school clubs
• we make use of collaborative and partnership working e.g. we are members of the local School Sports Partnership
With the above rationale in mind, and following the guidelines for how to spend this money, our initial plans for the use of the Sports Premium funding include:
• Investment in the professional development of staff at our school so they are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport for years to come. This will include providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE and sport and working with qualified coaches.
• Continued membership of the Local Cluster School Sport Partnership including Youth Sport Trust Primary membership.
• Setting up and running at least one new after school sports club
• Supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional sports clubs.
• Increasing the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate (suitable for Key stage One)
• Continuing to take part in local sports competitions/events (if appropriate for Key Stage One) organised by the local School Sport Partnership, during the years 2014/2015/2016/2017.
• Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules e.g. Dance.
• Making links to other community sports providers – encouraging pupils to join out of school sports clubs.-e.g. Kilnwick Percy Golf Club, Pocklington Tennis club
• Developing intra-school competitions and promoting sporting values.
• Developing the outdoor and adventurous activities element of the PE curriculum, utilising the school’s own grounds and facilities.
• Purchasing equipment to offer access to new sports and physical activities as relevant.
We will continue to evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting 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 Government’s Childhood Obesity Strategy suggests that “Primary Schools help every child to get 30 of the recommended 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical exercise a day in school time. It is suggested that PE, active break times and afterschool clubs can promote activity at school.”
Our School will continue to use the School Sports Premium to support this.
