Sports Premium

This year (2015) we have received £9070 in funding. We will be using the Sports Premium to target the following areas:

Continuous Professional Development:

Last year, we employed a sports coach to team teach with eight members of staff for one hour a week. He planned lessons and modelled games specific skills/techniques. This year, he will continue to support teachers as they take more of a role in leading lessons. This will allow for smaller group coaching within PE lessons and increased confidence among staff.

He will also be supporting members of staff who are new to the team this year.

Sports Competitions

We will continue to use funding to allow us to enter a variety of sports competitions e.g. tag rugby, golf, gymnastics, year 3/4 football, year 5/6 football (including a girls team), kwik cricket (including a girls team) and hockey.  We are also encouraging more children in year 2 to take part in competitions e.g. orienteering and fundamental skills.

After School Clubs

We will be supporting extra-curricular sports clubs and funding two PE clubs, one for KS1 and one for KS2, throughout the year.

Playground Sports Leaders

We will fund training for this year’s Playground Sports Leaders with the Secondary Schools Sports liaison teacher.  She will also come into PE lessons to demonstrate gymnastic and dance skills.   

Renewing Equipment

Money will also be used to replace/renew PE and playground equipment, e.g. new tag rugby kit to replace old for new and soft balls, skipping ropes and French skipping for break times.
