P.E. Sports Funding Report

 

St Alban’s CE Aided Primary School

PE and Sport Premium Report

Autumn 2017

St Alban’s Primary School uses the PE and Sport premium to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport which includes encouraging the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

 

2016 to 2017 academic year

Funding allocated 2016 - 2017                     £8,919

Expenditure 2016 to 2017

During 2016 to 2017 the school invested the premium allocation and additional money from the school budget to promote PE and sport and healthy, active lifestyles in the following ways:

  • PE Specialist Coach, Havant Academy: team teaching with class teachers (CPD for teachers) to raise attainment overall in PE/Sport, also increasing participation in sports clubs (e.g.netball, tennis). (£8,000)
  • Funding a cricket coach for the summer term to work with children in Year 4 and Year 5 as part of the ‘Chance to Shine’ scheme. (£120).
  • Employing additional member of staff at lunchtime to increase participation in active games during the lunch break (in particular our youngest pupils in EYFS and KS1 as less generally join after/before school sports clubs). (£2, 064). The lunchtime play leader role is supported well by pupil Sports Ambassadors (who were trained by the PE  leader).
  • Employing ‘Activ8’ to increase sport/fitness levels at lunchtimes in KS1 and KS2 for those pupils who do not or cannot join before/after school clubs (through leading a variety of games and activities). (£1, 635)

Total expenditure: £11,819

 

Impact 2016 to 2017

  • More pupils during the school day have increased their levels of physical activity in non-competitive sport and activities through the work of Active8,pupil Sports Ambassadors and a dedicated lunchtime member of staff (‘Play Leader’). Lunchtimes are now more productive and active times for the majority of pupils. Feedback from pupils has been very positive.
  • Children regularly receive high quality coaching through team-taught PE lessons (the outcomes of which are evidenced in the success of our sports teams in competitive events). In a recent survey of the teaching staff there was a very positive response to the work of the Specialist Sports Coach provision (Havant Academy) with all teachers stating that the team-teaching provided through this provision has helped them to develop their own teaching skills and confidence in teaching PE and Games.
  • St Alban’s sports teams routinely reach the finals/semi-finals of competitions entered and, considering the school is a small one-form entry rimary school, our teams experience high levels of success in competitive events. For example:
    • Year 6 Hockey team qualified for the Hampshire Games Finals in Aldershot at the end of June 2017 and came 1st in their division two league.
    • Year 5 and 6 Netball Club - before school throughout the Year. Year 6 Netball League - St Alban’s teams were runners up on goal difference. They also qualified for the Hampshire Games Finals in Aldershot at the end ofJune 2017 and came 3rd in Hampshire.
    • Year 6 Mixed Cricket team attended the Chance to Shine tournament in Emsworth (May 2017). They reached the Semi-Finals and came 4th.
  • Children have been able to access a much wider range of sporting opportunities than before through a combination of staff led clubs, specific clubs led by coaches employed to do this by the school (netball, cricket) and through additional companies offering privately run clubs.  As a result, children’s skill levels and amount of time engaged in physical activities have increased overall.
  • A further impact has been the improvement in the ability of children to engage productively in social and sporting activities at lunch time, reducing the number of behaviour related incidents for pupils who have previously struggled at these times.

How the improvements will be sustainable in the future

  • School leaders and Governors are committed to funding PE and Sports development in order to maintain the quality of provision already established. 
  • The pupil Sport Ambassador role has been created and will be maintained with on-going training provided by the PE Manager for pupils taking this role each year.
  • Subject knowledge for teaching staff has increased further through team teaching and this will be applied to future lessons.  Continued coaching and peer mentoring for staff, particularly NQTs, will ensure high quality teaching and learning.
  • The ‘play leader’ staff role at lunchtime will remain within the school’s staffing structure in the long term.
  • Training provided will have an impact over several years and will be refreshed periodically to ensure staff skills remain high.
