PE Funding

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

In addition to delivering the school’s PE curriculum through outstanding specialist teaching we have also considered how primary PE funding can enable a wider school offer for our children as well as impact on sustainability of provision.

Extra Provision: 

We have allocated approximately one third of our funding to join the Ashington and Coquet School Sport Partnership for the 2016-2017 academic year. This has allowed us to further enhance competitive opportunities for our pupils as well as build sustainable provision through high quality CPD with particular reference to support staff.  As part of the offer we will also be involved in the Sainsburys School Games competition, benefit from Youth Sport Trust membership and an extensive festival programme for Years 1-6. Additional activities include: Year 4 central venue leagues in netball and football to support competition in year groups where there are fewer School Games competitions.

 

The school also offers an extensive disability sport programme for our pupils coordinated by an England disability coach. 

 

The Government is providing £150 million per year, directly to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The funding is ring-fenced and can be spent only on PE and sport provision in schools. Each school receives a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for those children in Years 1-6.

 

At Bothal Primary School we received £10375 for the financial year: 2017-2018.

 

We will further strengthen provision through: 

  • Youth Sport Trust Kitemark – applying Sept 17 (early indications are that it will be GOLD)
  • Implement “the power of an active school” training to whole school
  • Increase parental engagement
  • Increase range of clubs on lower site

The impact of this provision is measured against national benchmarks such as the Challenging Physical Activity initiative (www.activitychallenge.co.uk) which aims to complement the National Curriculum in building children’s knowledge and skills while also significantly improving their fitness levels. Tests include challenging and improving fitness levels as benchmarked against a child’s ability to run, jump, throw and catch.

 

At Bothal Primary School we received £10320 in 2016-2017.

Sport Premium Sustainability

Wherever possible the PE and Sport Premium is used to create sustainable improvements in PE and School Sport by:

  • Upskilling Staff

    • opportunities to develop staff skills, knowledge and confidence which will impact on future cohorts of children

  • Community Links

    • creating meaningful links between the schools and community clubs where coaches deliver in schools, children are taken to the club for School Games competitions or children are supported to transition into community sport

  • Health & Well-Being

    • the development of Sports Leaders, School Sport Organising Crews and the provision of alternative activities such as skipping and hula-hooping have increased physical activity in school playgrounds. Trained leaders and teachers have created sustainability for the future

  • Partnership working

    • Thirteen Ashington and Coquet School Sport Partnership schools working together has built a strong, sustainable network where ideas are shared, support is offered and schools collaborate to offer their pupils the best opportunities they can.

Some of the activities, programmes and support we are able to provide with the Sport Premium would not be sustainable without further funding or passing on the costs to the pupils.

 

High quality CPD is provided for support staff within the department by access to Sports Partnership Membership. Whilst the  school is committed to the delivery of outstanding PE provision by specialist teachers we also understand the need to develop the capacity of the wider staff team and ensure that internal capacity (and succession planing) is in place to support. This is achieved through a whole school holistic approach to 'fit for life.' Through this approach, all staff deliver an after school club linked to the development of motor skills, competitive sports, healthy eating, mental health and well-being. An audit of staff skills against pupil needs ensures that the PE department is able to target direct coaching appropriately to develop and enhance provision for our children as well as create a skilled staff body. This has enabled the school to offer a wider after school provision which isn't reliant on the skill set of staff within the department.
