PE and Sport Premium

PE and Sport Premium 2016 – 17

In March 2013 the Government announced a package of funding to support and improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools and to promote healthy lifestyles. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government committed to providing £150 million in each of the years 2013/14 and 2014/15. In early February 2014 the Prime Minister confirmed this funding would now extend to 2020. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. Schools have the freedom to choose how to use the money to improve their provision of PE and sport and to promote the health and wellbeing of all pupils. We have been allocated £9373 for the financial year 2016/17.

Suggestions of Possible Uses

How All Saints’ is using the funding

Support and involve the least active children for example by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs

Staff access to online planning tools to further support lunchtime activities. We continue to consider and stock equipment for different play ‘zones’ in the playground each day.

After school sports clubs run across both key stages covering sports such as; football, rounders, cricket and dance.

Provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers

Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons

Training and coaching has and will continue to roll out throughout the year to inspire and equip staff to improve the provision of PE and Sports within the class setting.

Resources such as schemes of work and online planning tools are being provided to facilitate improved PE and Sports provision and to encourage healthy lifestyle choices.

Olympic Athletes will be invited into school to present and run coaching sessions with the children to inspire active participation in sports.

Run sports activities with other schools

We have once again joined the Ilkley Grammar School Primary Sports League providing all year 4, 5 and 6 children with the opportunity to participate in sports such as; football leagues, dodgeball, handball, swimming, basketball, netball, rounders and athletics. We have a strong cross country club and many pupils participate in the local league.

 

For many years All Saints’ have enjoyed and celebrated the involvement of a vast range of sports and sporting events from highly competitive to taking part for the fun and enjoyment of it. All children are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and know that their efforts will be appreciated and praised whatever the outcome. With this ethos we see most of the children in school taking part in sport at some point and many taking part on a very regular basis, making sport a life choice. The funding provided is helping us to maintain and improve the sporting and wellbeing opportunities for our children.
