PE and Sports Premium

PE and Sports Premium

The Primary PE and Sports Premium is an amount of money given to schools each year and is ring-fenced funding to be used by our school to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality and breadth of PE, sport and physical activity. This funding has been agreed until July 2018. 

The national vision is for: “All pupils leaving primary school to be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.” 

The revised DfE guidance includes five key indicators across which schools should demonstrate improvement. We have used the DfE template to both review our provision and report our spend and as an effective way of meeting the reporting requirements of the Primary PE and Sport Premium.

In the academic year 2020-21, we received £17 710, the use of which we report below under the five key indicators, reflecting on previous spend and its impact, while identifying current needs and priorities for the future and next steps (September 2021):

1.  The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles, including any additional provision for swimming funded by the premium.  Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school. Percentage of total allocation 54.48%      
Outcome: What are you aiming to achieve? Funding Allocated Actions to achieve the outcome The IMPACT on pupils (actual or expected) Sustainability & Next Steps?
To promote active lifestyles by creating more opportunities so that children not otherwise participating were engage in at least one extra-curricular sporting activity during the year. 2,100 (including resources) Learning & Care Practitioner with Sports’ Coaching qualifications. delivered ‘short’ programmes from Year 1 to Year 6 that respond to the particular interests of children (in bubbles due to covid restrictions). Almost every child 160/167 from Y1-6 accessed extra-curricular sporting activity either through external club participation or out of school hour sporting activities.  The benefit to promoting healthy lifestyles for children involved merits the continuation of a ‘menu of sporting activities’ in the absence of restrictions.
To maintain opportunities for children to sustain 30 minutes of physical activity every day.  7,548 Purchase and fit Activall boards, encouraging individual play that crossed the mid-line building core-strength in a league-table style competition, while other forms of sport/play were restricted due to pandemic. All children were engaged playing games at break, lunch times as well as before and after school.  Continues to be an accessible resource to aid increase children’s fitness.

Outcome: What are you aiming to achieve? FundingAllocated Actions to achieve the outcome The IMPACT on pupils (actual or expected) Sustainability & Next Steps?
Maintain high quality curricular PE From DSG A minimum of 2 hours of curricular time is timetabled for each class each year. Due to restrictions, classes accessed PE on one day each week, which limited their time to 90minutes. However,  all children, within the limitations of ‘bubbles’ acquired the knowledge and skills to engage in a broad range of games, dance, gymnastics and athletics. (Swimming was unavailable) PE Timetable will be re-established to ensure a minimum 2 hours PE.  
Active ‘break-times’ for children in Key Stage 1 including high quality equipment 2,500 (for equipment) Key stage 1 children take part in active sporting activity each break-time. Due to restrictions on equipment us and ‘bubbles’ this activity was limited. Equipment is available once the restrictions ceased. 
3.  Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport Percentage of total allocation 5.33%

To improve pedagogy of class teachers.  945 Moderation of the evidence of learning relating to curricular ‘studies’ and reflect upon practice to improve learning Studies have been completed and have improved PE lessons so that all children can achieve the expected standard. With studies completed, there is a need to develop subject knowledge of practitioners
4.  Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils Percentage of total allocation 14.97%      
Outcome: What are you aiming to achieve? FundingAllocated Actions to achieve the outcome The IMPACT on pupils (actual or expected) Sustainability & Next Steps?
Provide a wider range of sports and activities as out of school hours activities  Accounted above Make use of the ‘sports coaches’ to gain knowledge of a wider menu of sports and activities that engage primary children There were few opportunities across the year, due to restrictions for either coaches to come into school or children to attend out of school sports clubs. Qualified sports coaches will provide menu of sports activities on site, when they are able to return.
Provide additional adventurous activities over and above the national curriculum requirement 2,652 Engage West View Project in ‘Canvas Classroom’ project Although not ideal or as intended, WVP were able to deliver adapted activities on the school site, which  means children have improved team-work and life skills due to adventurous outdoor activities. This provision should continue in its intended form, as it not only develops physical skills but also builds self-reliance. 
5.  Increased participation in competitive sport Percentage of total allocation 18.33%      
Outcome: What are you aiming to achieve? FundingAllocated Actions to achieve the outcome The IMPACT on pupils (actual or expected) Sustainability & Next Steps?
Create opportunities for parents to share the participation and success of their children in competitive intra-school summer sports.  228 (purchase of medals) To continue ‘Summer Sports Programme’ including inviting parents.  While each class was able to ‘show-cased’ a competitive sport and athletics competition, sadly their parents were not able to attend, due to covid restrictions. Our two-week programme still provided an opportunity for children to gain an appreciation of the enjoyment and demand of competition. The Summer Sports Programme was valued and valuable to children. Being able to have parents present again next year will greatly add to its merit.
Contribution to School Sports Partnership Coordinator (EMS) to coordinate competitive sports programme across our cluster of schools 2,420 & 600 (pupil transport) Agree programme jointly across cluster of schools with SSPC; provide training; select teams/participants; arrange transport and participation Programme was not delivered due to covid restrictions.
