Sports Premium Funding 2018 – 2019

 

Our allocation for 2018 – 2019 is £19,540

 

 

Teacher Professional Development

 

A staff audit of PE skills and confidence in teaching these skills was carried out at the end of the Summer Term 2018. As a lot of staff were changing year group, their training needs were looked at particularly carefully to ensure they would be confident to teach different units of PE in different year groups.

 

Part of the allocation shall be spent on sending teachers on PE training courses over the year in the area that they need to develop or refresh and to pay for supply cover when they attend.

 

 

Teach School Sport

 

Teach School Sport have worked alongside us for many years now and have provided high quality, fully qualified coaches for us. Each teacher is able to work alongside a coach in partnership once a week to develop their teaching of PE. The teacher can get personal support from the coach in an area that they have had identified in the audit. This may be how to challenge the gifted and talented children, simplifying skills for children who find an aspect of PE difficult, adapting a lesson for a child with a specific need or encouraging all children to challenge themselves. Teachers have grown in their own delivery of a high quality PE lesson through working alongside a coach and we shall continue to do this throughout the year.

 

 

For the Autumn Term we have 2 coaches working 3 full days a week. They work with a year group for a half term (6/7 weeks) at a time providing a unit of work for that half term. This year they will continue to work with all year groups rather than just a few for the whole year depending on the need of the teacher and the children. One of the coaches specialises in Gymnastics and Dance and so this skill will be fully utilized for each year group.

 

 

Skipping skills

 

In the new year we shall be having the company Skip-Hop joining us for a few days to teach the children a wide range of skipping skills. We have used this company for many years now with very pleasing results. Most children can now skip in the school as a result of this and are given the opportunity to skip at both playtime and lunchtime every day. By using this company, we can build on previous skills learnt.

 

 

School Games Bronze Award

 

This year we are hoping to receive this award. School Games is a Government initiative to raise the profile of School Sport in different ways. (see attachment). Funding shall be used to release the PE subject Leader from class to carry out internal school competitions to achieve this award and to increase pupils’ participation in the School Games.

 

 

School Sports Competitions

 

This year we are hoping to enter some sporting competitions being held by School Games and other schools to increase participation in competitive sport. Funding will be used to provide supply cover for teachers to take children to these events and also any transport costs that may arise.

 

 

After School Clubs

 

We are continuing to try and extend our range of after school clubs this year with parents paying a minimal amount where possible. A very small amount of the funding is used to cover any shortfall in the cost of the coach running an after school club.

 

  1. clubs offered at the moment are Dance and Multi-sports for KS1 and KS2. Gymnastics for KS2 and Football for girls and boys in Y6.

 

 

Diddi Dance

 

During all of the Spring Term, both morning and afternoon Nursery children will participate in a weekly movement session called Diddi Dance. We use our Sports Funding to pay for this. Diddi dance classes are designed to help younger children enhance their co-ordination and rhythm. Diddi Dance uses ribbons and hoops to help the children get the most from the music as well as using some other fun props. Dance themes include salsa, hip hop, tap and disco so the children also learn about lots of music and dance styles as well as having fun.

 

 

Change for Life Club

 

This club aims to increase participation in sport and physical activity by less active children in Year 3 and 4. It is also used to develop confidence and self-esteem for children. This lunchtime club has proved very successful in previous years and we are running it again from Autumn 2 onwards. Children who we feel would benefit from it are chosen to attend the club by their class teachers and no child that is invited to join has to participate if they do not wish to. The club is run by Year 5 champions and encourages pupils to take on leadership roles that support sport and physical activity within the school. Any new resources or training needs to run this club shall be provided with the Sports Premium.

The future

 

We shall continue to try and introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities wherever we can and use the Sports Premium to do this.

School Games Information

 

The Sainsbury’s School Games is a national programme that aims to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive sport.

 

Sainsbury’s is the headline sponsor of the School Games, which the government set up alongside our partners Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust. We provide funding alongside private sponsorship and National Lottery funds.

The School Games gives primary and secondary students the chance to compete at school and regional levels with the most talented competing at a national level. The competition is open to all and encourages young people to participate in competitive sport across all levels of ability and experience. Disabled sports are included at every level of the competition.

Over half of the schools in England signed up to the School Games in 2012, and the first National Finals were held in the Olympic Park in London, in May 2012. The second National Finals were hosted in Sheffield in September 2013. We will keep promoting the programme and encourage more schools to become involved with the School Games by signing up online.

The School Games also gives more competitive sports opportunities to young people with special educational needs and disabilities through Project Ability. Run by the Youth Sport Trust, the project is working with 50 schools to improve sport for disabled pupils through training, local sports opportunities and school club activities.


 

 

Sports Premium Funding 2017 – 2018

 

Our allocation for 2017-2018 -  £19,580

 

Teacher Professional Development

 

As in previous years, a staff audit of PE skills was carried out in September. Part of the allocation shall be spent on sending teachers on PE training courses over the year in the area that they need to develop or refresh.

 

‘Sharing Good Practice’ is a system used within the school and the PE Subject Leader is able to take PE lessons in various classes whilst the class teacher observes. This has proved hugely successful in the past and assists teachers in their teaching of high quality PE, not to mention raise their confidence. Money for supply cover will be used to release the PE Subject Leader from class to enable this to continue.

 

 

Teach School Sport

 

We will be continuing to employ Teach School Sport this year as we have done in previous years. We have noticed a huge improvement in the children’s abilities and skills during this time and want to continue to build on this now it is fully established. This company provide us with fully qualified coaches to work alongside teachers to develop their confidence and to give full support and training in the teaching of high quality PE to the children.

 

We have 2 coaches every week who work a full day each. They work with a year group for 6/7 weeks at a time providing a unit of work for that half term. This year they will work with all year groups rather than just a few for the whole year depending on the need of the teacher and the children. One of the coaches specialises in Gymnastics and Dance and so this skill will be fully utilized.

 

 

After School Clubs

 

We are still trying to extend our range of after school clubs this year with parents paying a minimal amount. A very small amount of the funding has been used to cover any shortfall in the cost of the club and the cost of the coach providing the club.

 

 

Change for Life Club

 

This club aims to increase participation in sport and physical activity by less active children in Year 3 and 4. This lunchtime club has proved very successful in previous years and we hope to run it again in the new year. Children are chosen to attend the club who we feel would benefit from it and no child that is invited to join it has to participate. The club will be run by Year 6 champions who had specialised training last year.

During all of the Spring Term, both morning and afternoon Nursery children will participate in a weekly movement session called Diddi Dance. We use our Sports Funding to pay for this.

Bexley Primary Sports Council

 

We pay £100 fee from our Sports Funding to the Bexley Primary Sports Council to cover our continued membership. BPSC provides competitions for schools in the Borough for us to enter should we wish to. The fee covers the cost of trophies and medals that are awarded to participants in the competitions.
