P.E & Sports Grant
PE and Sport Grant Allocation
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding for P.E and Sport.
This funding is being used to improve the quality and breadth of sports provision.
In 2016-2017 our school was allocated £5524
How the grant has been spent this year:
- Provided training to introduce playground games during lunch time.
- Employed qualified coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence. (approx. £2500)
- Provided professional development for staff in order to improve quality of sports provision. (approx. £500)
- Purchased specialist sports equipment. (approx. £1300)
- Provided places for pupils in after-school sports clubs and encouraged children who have been identified as being gifted and talented in PE to attend. (approx. £500)
- Providing opportunities for children to participate in a range of sporting competitions across the city. Including transport. (approx. £1200)
- Buying into the local sports network – Youth Sport Trust.
The impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment:
- CPD opportunities for both teaching and support staff to ensure that there is a legacy of high quality P.E & sport after the grant funding has ceased.
- There has been a large increase in the number of children choosing to participate in sports games during lunchtimes.
- Children enjoy sessions taught by specialist PE teachers and qualified coaches and strive to develop their sports skills.
- There has been an increase in the amount of children attending after school sport clubs. This is evident in the dance clubs in particular.
- Links have been made with other subjects that contribute to the pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual and cultural skills.
- Pupils have become more aware of the importance of exercise and the dangers of obesity, smoking and other activities which undermine pupils’ health.
We want all our children to enjoy taking part in a range of sporting & P.E activities. Pupils are encouraged to try new sports and take part in activities that help them develop different skills and talents.
As a result of the P.E and sport premium, the number of pupils attending clubs both at school and in the community has increased.
The average attendance at our clubs is as follows:
Football = 19 regular participants
Freddy Fit club = 12 regular participants
Dodgeball = 19 regular participants
