Sports Premium

Sports funding for Primary Schools - What is the sports premium?

 

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding has now been extended to at least 2015-16 as well. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E. for all their children.  The sport funding can only be spend on sport and P.E. provision in schools.

 

Purpose of funding

 

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of P.E. and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist P.E. teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching P.E.
  • New or additional Change4Life sports clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in P.E./Sport
  • Running sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for P.E./Sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.

 

How will we be spending the Sports funding and who will benefit?

 

The Governors of St. Edmund’s agree that the funding must be used so that: all children will benefit, regardless of sporting ability; that we target and offer additional sports and P.E. to pupils who would not normally engage in sport; that the most able pupils are given the chance to compete in tournaments and festivals of sport; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

 

Key Highlights 2015 - 2016

Why so good?

Awarded School Games Mark Bronze

As a school it shows that we are delivering high quality P.E. opportunities for our children.

Qualified for 6 different Level 3 games competitions – Cross Country, Athletics, Netball, Go-Ride Cycling, Hockey, Tag Rugby

Shows that at our school we have very talented children in a range of activities from team to individual events.

Took part in 15 different Level 2 games competitions

Children from Year 2 – 6 got the opportunity to take part in a range of sports competitions. Some of the competitions were a first for St. Edmund’s school and our children.

Over 70% of our children who receive Pupil Premium took part in a sports competition.

 

140 out of 168 (83%) of children from Year 2 – 6 took part in a sports competition.

 

Managed to provide a lot of our children with the opportunity to take part in an extra-curricular activity regardless of their ability levels. This allowed all of the children to gain a self of wellbeing and pride that they may not get due to not attending a local sports group.

Our children raised money for an active sports day with a Great Britain Paralympic Athlete. This inspired a lot of the children throughout the day due to the inspirational speech.

Celebrated National School Sports Week

During the week the children were given the opportunity to take part in 3 different sports within school – taekwondo, squash and football skills. The children were also treated to having their photo taken with the Capital One Cup, thanks to Manchester City.

Gained a partnership with The Football Association.

Children in Years 1, 2, 5 and 6 were given specialist football training sessions by the FA.

Sports Leaders were formed in the school and given an active part.

Year 5 leaders ran both the Fit 4 Life Sports Club for Key Stage 1 and the Key Stage 1 Sports Day. Children gained in responsibility and leadership skills which improved their own relationships between each other.

Fit 4 Life continued to be a success in the school.

In our third year of having Fit 4 Life we had 67 children from Year 3 – 6 attend over the year (49%). This meant that our children were learning the values of playing a range of sports and taking part in exercise sessions.

National Cycling Centre

Our Year 3 class took part in a cycling session every week at the National Cycling Centre. At the beginning 12 children (34%) of the class could not ride a bike with a further 5 (14%) being very ‘nervous’ riders. By the end of the year every child, except 2, were able to successful ride a bike on the Mountain Bike and BMX tracks at the facility.
