Following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Government has made a commitment to invest over £450 million on improving Physical Education (PE) and Sport in primary schools over the academic years 2013 – 2017.
This funding is set to double in the academic year of 2017/2018
The Government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport from the year 2013 – present. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school. Schools and Academies determine how best to spend their allocation.
We have decided to spend our allocation in the following way to enhance PE within the primary curriculum. Here at Wrenthorpe Primary our aim is to improve the health, fitness and the well-being of all our pupils.
The allocation for 2016 – 2017 is £9,129
Details of spending for 2016-2017:
£7,262 – Skilled Sports Coaches
£1,867 – Resources and equipment
- To offer a wide range of sporting activities for all children. The PE sessions are delivered by highly skilled sports coaches and teachers, in this way the teachers benefit from receiving excellent CPD opportunities every second week in all areas of the curriculum.
- To deliver high quality PE lessons to every child. The curriculum has been updated in line with the new National Curriculum guidelines. It now includes sports such as zumba and dodgeball. These lessons will be delivered by our teachers and by our highly skilled sports coaches. The lesson focuses heavily on competitive sport where children are then encouraged through further intra and then inter school competitions out of school.
- To purchase new equipment to enable the teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons.
- To encourage the less engaged children to take part in our ‘Change for Life’ clubs such as; cheerleading, cricket and healthy cooking clubs.
- To provide a new opportunity to the children through the new samba band after school club. This will work alongside the existing street dance/cheerleading club.
- To offer a sports coach to deliver high quality sessions at lunchtime ensuring all children have access to a wide range of competitive sports.
- Achieved Sainsbury’s Silver School Games Award.
- The purchase of new sports and music equipment for PE lessons has led to the introduction of: samba band, dance and choir. These after school clubs have impacted on an increased uptake of children taking part in after school activity, for example the choir has increased from 30 to 52 children from KS2. The impact of this is very clear to see during choir performances: the development of pupil well-being and self-esteem is evident.
- Children offered a wide variety of after school clubs in both KS1 and KS2 to increase opportunities to develop a healthy and broad range of skills/interests to help build a healthy lifestyle. Clubs are subsidised to ensure minimal cost for parents – £2.50 per session with an aim to offer these clubs free to Pupil Premium children in the future.
- The children have been offered a range of competitive sports from the age of Reception – Year 6. The numbers have increased by 50% in the Reception/KS1 uptake of these clubs.
- The purchase of resources for the Change for Life clubs such as; chess club and healthy eating club have impacted on an increased number of children demonstrating an improved knowledge and awareness of healthy eating and the importance of how activity and diet impact on improved health, fitness and well-being.
- Gifted and talented PE sessions are offered within dance, gymnastics and games. Children have been identified across school and take part in intense training sessions throughout the year. This has had a huge impact on improved PE attainment as well as self-confidence and self-esteem of those children involved (ranging from 18%-31% of each year group showing exceeding attainment in PE).
- Less engaged and disadvantaged pupils have been identified and have the opportunity of extra – skills development sessions throughout the year. This has had a huge impact on these children who are now given the confidence to attend some of the after school clubs that are on offer.
- A recent questionnaire showed that 100% of children look forward to PE lessons. It also stated that 100% of children felt that the teachers that delivered their PE lessons were much more skilled than in previous years (80%)
- Every teacher now reports increased skills and proficiency in the progressive teaching of sport within their year group.
- Every teacher in school now offers an after school club to children, an improvement in staff numbers from 50% to 100%.
- Each year group has the opportunity of choosing their gifted and talented children to further enhance their skills. These children have the opportunity to represent the school in inter-school competitions throughout the year.
- Regular reviews of how pupils are assessed have taken place with other PLTs from other Outwood Primary Schools. Further meetings in 2016/2017.
- 100% of children reports that they love PE at our school.
