Sport Funding Allocation

Sport at Greatwood

 

To continue the legacy of the 2012 Olympic games, the government dedicated a new 'PE and Sports Premium Funding' to all schools. This is designed to be used by schools to develop the range of sports a school offers as well as competitive sport. The key aim for the funding is to make sustainable changes and improvements to all staff within a school. Through training and support, it is expected that schools use the funding to ensure all children have a high standard of PE teaching throughout their time at primary school.

 

Through the use of the sports premium, we have successfully developed the sport provision at Greatwood. Currently, we have achieved the Youth Sports Trust Gold Mark for 2015 - 2017, School Games Gold Mark 2016 & 2017 & won two North Yorkshire Awards in successive years recognising our achievements in broadening the sports we have on offer in our school and the amount of children taking part in competitive sport. In July 2017, we were awarded the national Angela Jane award from the AfPE. This showed our commitment to encouraging healthy living and a healthy lifestyle through sport. These are all phenomenal achievements and are awards that we are incredibly proud of. In addition to this, in 2016/2017 we spoke at two headteacher meetings; sharing out excellent practice and advising others how to use their sports premium money effectively. 

 

At Greatwood we pride ourselves on the sporting opportunities we offer all children. Not only do we ensure that teaching of P.E is good or outstanding, we ensure that a range of extra curricular activities are available for all children to access. These include lunch times and after school clubs. In addition to this, children have the chance to take part in competitive sports in all areas of sports available. We believe in being fully inclusive and encourage children with SEND to take part in sport. Finally, we spend time training older children how to be sports leaders.

 

The sports funding has enabled us to develop our provision of P.E even further.

 

It is expected that the sports premium money spending should have an impact on the following areas. These have been highlighted in the table below using the indicating number next to each point. This shows how we are covering a range of key indicators throughout school.

 

1. The engagement of ALL pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy lifestyles.

2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

5. Increased participation in competitive sport.

 

Here is a brief summary of the ways that we have planned to spend the 2016 - 2017 Sport Funding allocation:

 

Sport Funding 2016/2017 - Impact of the spending - Updated September 2017 to show impact.

Greatwood Community Primary School

 

Funding = Approx. £9100

Cost and Area Information Impact on children

Staff Training

£1000

PE Sports Leader Level 5 - Miss Hoggarth

 

BUPA Physical Literacy

 

Additional North Yorkshire Sport Courses

Miss Hoggarth is taking part in a leadership course in order to develop her understanding and ability at identifying future development opportunities for the school. This will ultimately benefit the children as she will be carrying out projects to develop new areas of PE for the school, including healthy living.Miss Hoggarth has completed the course. Currently, we are now developing the curriculum for P.E throughout school. Initially we will be focusing on the development of a skills based curriculum in KS2. This will be trialled in two year groups and, once reviewed, be shared across the rest of the school. 

 

As part of Caroline Moorhouse's role; there will be support going into Nursery and Reception. This is to support the staff in those classes to develop the PE provision that is currently in place. We are keen to help support childrens' early development in PE and secure the foundation skills before moving in to Key Stage 1. Caroline Moorhouse has worked with our Nursery staff and one of our Reception teachers so far. After half term, she will be working with our second Reception teacher to support the development of the children's skills in the foundation stage.

 

Foundation stage staff will attend the BUPA Physical Literacy course to develop their understanding of the foundation movements and skills that children need to develop early on. This will enable all children to come through to KS1 with good basic skills. Mrs Wilkin has attend the first of a two day course to develop the physical literacy and sport skills throughout foundation stage. This has already had an impact on the children who have a wider range of opportunities to develop their early skills. Following on from the second day, Mrs Wilkin was able to share the developments across the foundation stage. During 2017/2018, we will be reviewing the provision of sport in the foundation stage to evaluate the impact.

Coaching and Outside Agencies

£700

Young Whistlers

 

Rugby

The use of outside agencies to help coach our children gives them a greater understanding of the sport as well the skills that they need. By supporting the children by having a coach, we notice more children take part in these sessions and actively enjoy different approaches. 

Resources

£1200

Cleaning Gymnastics Equipment

 

Rugby Equipment

 

PE Mats

 

Playground Games 

Equipment

 

Garden Games Equipment

 

Skipping Ropes

The constant development a purchases of new resources is key to up-keep the wide range of sports that we offer in school. By ensuring we have up to date, fully working equipment, we are able to offer high quality lessons and extra curricular events for all children to attend. 

Skipping has developed over the course of the year so far. Our lunch time staff took part in a skipping course which has now been implemented into a break and lunch time activity. We are also starting a skipping club for KS2 after half term. This is part of our commitment to develop the amount of sports we have on offer to our children. 

 

As we have continued to develop the resources we have in school, we have ensured that there are even more opportunities for structured play at lunch time for KS1 children. This has led to the purchase of a range of new playground equipment for lunch time supervisors to use as well as playground leaders. 

Clubs

£1000

Playmakers - £6 per child (17 children)

Playground Leaders - No cost (cost indicated for equipment)

Cheerleading - £30 per hour

Golf - £25 per hour

Basketball - £30 per hour

Change4Life - Equipment and resources needed

Following on from our multitude of clubs last year, we are keen to give children more opportunities to try new sports that they have not tried before. We already have a number of new sports in place that will give children the chance to broaden their sporting skills and opportunities.

Through funding our change4life club, we have been able to include a wider range of children who haven't take part in many sports before. Through this we have included children on the SEND register and have offered competitive opportunities in kurling, boccia and fencing. We are also providing some children to attend a squash training session at a local tennis and squash club.

 

Towards the end of the year, the amount of clubs spread and we included a gymnastics club for KS1 twice as it proved so popular with the children after the first time. We have focused a great deal on the clubs we offer which support the education of healthy living. As a consequence of this, the school was awarded the Angela James award by the AfPE. This highlighted the work we have done towards the education of healthy living through extra-curricular provision. 

Additional Costs

£4700

Trophies - £600

Caroline Moorhouse - £1600

Sports Day - £100

Transport - £1000

Swimming - £1500

Additional costs are always important to maintain the high quality provision that we offer already. Caroline Moorhouse will continue to be funded as her input on competitive sessions and support for staff in school is vital to ensure we sustain high quality teaching. 

We are using some funding in order to maintain swimming for all children in KS2. We believe that it is crucial that all children can swim a length by the time they leave us. By using some funding we are able to continue with swimming sessions for these year groups. 

By continuing to support our transport costs, we have been able to continue to offer children the opportunity to take part in competitive sport at various venues around the local area and further afield. We are using our transport cost towards taking children to the county finals of cross country including the races for years 3,4,5 & 6 as well as the inclusive race, where we have 3 children taking part in this. 

 

Our continued use of the money towards a range of support for the school and it's aims has created more opportunities for children to take part in a range of extra-curricular activity and competitive sport. The use of the money towards swimming has ensured that we can start swimming from an earlier age than necessary. This is ensuring that children have an earlier awareness of swimming. 

ICT/New Technologies (Linked with School Development Plan

£300

Imovesdance subscription - £300

We have already seen the great success that came out of using imovesdance. We are continuing with our subscription of this as we are keen for all children to access high quality dance sessions throughout KS1 & KS2. 

 

The development of technologies in sport has helped the assessment of P.E in the curriculum. By using technology in areas such as dance and gymnastics, the staff and children have the opportunity to evaluate their own learning and create more assessment opportunities. 

 

The continued use of Imovesdance has enabled all staff to feel more confident with the teaching of dance. It has also ensured that the resources are available to make good progress in dance for the children. 

 

Here is a brief summary of the ways that we have planned to spend the 2015-2016 Sport Funding allocation:

This has supported their teaching in KS1 to really enhance the skills that the children are learning and given them solid foundations for their time at primary school.

 

A number of staff attended the High 5 netball training where they were able to learn new ways of teaching to support the teaching of netball. This also impacted on lunch time sports and after school clubs, where 32 children in KS2 regularly took part in netball as an extra curricular sport.
