Sports Premium Review 2016-17

Last Year’s Development Priorities:

1) Ensure a range of clubs continue to be made available across all year groups and manage places at these clubs fairly to ensure as many children as possible are able to access them.

2) Closely monitor children’s attendance at clubs and support and encourage those who are not accessing these opportunities.

3) Continue to provide opportunities for children to represent the school in a range of sporting events.

4) Ensure all staff are confident using the Cambridge PE Scheme of Work, delivering high quality PE sessions with the support of outside agencies.

5) Provide opportunities for children to engage in constructive, well-delivered physical activity (football and other activities) over lunchtimes.

Review:

1) A range of clubs were offered across all 3 terms, with at least 15 different clubs made available each term. Korfball club continued to be offered after the departure of Mr Barnes, and football club ran for the entire year to ensure the school team had an opportunity to train for the range of competitions over the year.

2) Data from clubs has continued to be monitored closely and shared with teachers regularly. Mrs Tooher-Rudd liaised with parents and children to promote the value of extra-curricular clubs to Pupil Premium children, as a result, every PP child attended a club and a large number attended several over the year.

3) Participation in clubs rose again slightly this year (from 71% overall last year), with 75% of KS2 children attending at least one club and 80% of KS1 pupils doing so. This was due to a significant increase in clubs offered to KS1 pupils. A large number of pupils participated in multiple clubs, with approximately 50% of children attending 2 or more and 30% attending 3 or more.

4) The PE co-ordinators split responsibility for liaising with class teachers regarding the scheme of work, ensuring that teachers were confident using the scheme to deliver high quality PE lessons. Coaches from outside agencies were allocated to work with teachers who had requested extra support in delivering the scheme of work.

5) Coaches from Premier Sport have provided daily sporting activities at lunchtimes, offering organised sporting activities for key stage 2 children. Weekly ‘stars of the week’ have been awarded by the coaches, promoting positive sporting behaviours on the playground.

Other Successes:

  • Sporting results:
    • Tag rugby, netball – reached regional competitions
    • Cross country results – winner of year 5 girls, second place in year 5 boys
  • Intra School Competition also happened regularly at the end of units of work in PE in KS2. These were again organised and run by Year 6 Sports leaders.
