Sports Premium Strategy 2016-17

 

At St. Mary’s CEVA Primary we are committed to ensuring that each individual pupil receives the very best education allowing them to reach their full potential academically and socially. This belief is reflected in our school vision:

EXPLORE LIFE:  gaining knowledge, understanding and skills, through exploration and enquiry, in an engaging curriculum.

 

EXPLORE FAITH:  appreciating how the school’s Christian values are threaded through all we do, believing every child is unique and special, with a purpose for life.

 

ENJOY LEARNING:  developing a love of lifelong learning, both in and out of the classroom.

 

ENJOYING BELONGING:  celebrating diversity, encouraging care for ourselves and others, with a strong sense of belonging and respect.

 

EXCEL DAILY:  enabling achievement across the curriculum, developing skills for life, making the most of personal gifts and talents.

Our growth mindset and learning to learn culture ensures that we have the highest expectations and that we continually strive to ensure that no pupil is left behind.

As part of the Government’s Olympic Legacy Project, funding of £150 million per annum has been provided to primary schools in order to improve provision of PE and sports. This funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sports in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. Below is an outline of how and where this funding has been spent. The impact of the spending has been monitored and outlined below.

In 2016-17 St. Mary’s received £9322 of Sports Premium.

The funding allocation was prioritised in the following way:

  • To enable all children to have access to high quality sports enrichment
  • To facilitate professional development for teachers to ensure sports provision is delivered to a high level.
  • To provide the opportunity for all children to watch a live, professional sporting event.
  • To enable children to have the opportunity to partake in inter-school competitions.
  • To ensure sports equipment is updated regularly.

Costings:

  • £8373 paid to Bristol Rugby to work alongside teachers in providing high quality sports teaching and to provide enrichment clubs
  • £100 to South Glos PE Association enabling the school to partake in greater number of inter schools sports competitions.
  • £225 (plus £186 for supply cover) for curriculum lead to attend Real Gym training
  • £289 spent on equipment
  • £372 spent to enable teachers to supervise competitions

= £9359

 

Impact

 

Enable all children to have access to high quality sports enrichment.

 

At St. Mary’s we offer a range of sports clubs run by qualified sports coaches and teachers. Clubs run by outside agencies are subsidised using sports premium funding (Disadvantaged children attend for free using Pupil Premium funding) to ensure that they are accessible to all children.

Clubs include: Y5/6 football, Y3/4 football, KS1 Hockey, Dodgeball, Multi Sports club, Hockey, running, Jailbreak, rugby and girls invasion.

2016-17 has seen a 48% in sport club intake from 2015-16 (Data taken from T1-4 in both years)

Provide the opportunity for all children to watch a live, professional sporting event.

 

Through Bristol Rugby enrichment club, children can have a complimentary ticket to see a live game at Ashton Gate. The club is subsidised using sports premium funding.

Facilitate professional development for teachers to ensure sports provision is delivered to a high level.

 

Members of Bristol Rugby have worked alongside teachers to deliver PE lessons. Teachers have been able to use strategies from these sessions in their own teaching.

Bristol Rugby and PFS were also contracted to provide PPA cover for years 5/6 and 3/4. This ensured that all children in KS2 have had access to professional sports coaching.

Curriculum leader attending Real Gym training. This resource is now being used across upper key stage two and will be rolled out across KS2 next academic year (2017-18)
