Sport Premium Funding 2016-2017

School: Templenewsam Halton Primary School

Date: September 2016

Total PE and Sport Funding this academic year:  £9805

Brief overview of PE and sport provision in the school (prior to September 2016):

At Templenewsam Halton Primary School, the PE Leader, Mrs Rossiter has had the responsibility of developing PE and sport and deciding upon the effective use of Sport Premium funding.  Our children, parents and staff recognise that we have a good reputation for sport within our school and our Trust.  We are constantly promoting healthy eating, a healthy and active lifestyle and we aspire to provide all our pupils with two hours of sport per week with an additional offer of extra curricula clubs taking the potential hours to three or four.  We have welcomed this additional sports funding, which have used to further enhance our PE provision and it has supported our aim to increase participation in our after school clubs.  In the last year we have spent the 2015/2016 monies in the following ways:

Development opportunities
Coaches providing specialist teaching (Rugby, gymnastics, games skills and dance)
Sports Co-ordinator support from Temple moor High School
Active Schools support
Attending regular sporting competitions, festivals and tournaments at a city level and within our Trust
Health Week
Key Stage One after school clubs, (sports skills), KS2 after school clubs, (Rugby, Gymnastics and Dance).
Equipment

Evidence of impact

We have found teachers have an improved skill level through attending courses and through observing and supporting coaches in teaching specific aspects of PE.  They have developed in their knowledge of the subject and they have more enthusiasm and passion for teaching PE, teachers when surveyed identified the value of learning new approaches to teaching sports skills with the children.

The SSCO has been responsible for providing the schools in the Trust with a competition calendar allowing an increase rate in competition between the children in our school and other schools. He has also come into school and taught individual classes to support and develop staff CPD.

In addition we have had a tennis coach in school, raising the profile of tennis during the Wimbledon fortnight.  All classes received a tennis lesson in small groups, allowing high quality teaching to be delivered, allowing skill development to be maximised.

We have linked with PSHCE again this year and promoted a health week. The children learnt about keeping their bodies healthy and they made a variety of healthy snacks and drinks. Notably Reception and Key Stage One learned to Salsa with a Salsa teacher, but all children had the opportunity to take part in either healthy eating, drug awareness or physical activities.  Evaluation of this week with the children showed that they understood the importance of staying fit and healthy and could identify activities that got their hearts pounding!

We provided after school clubs for key stage one, allowing more children to be physically active and develop their love of sport.  Parent feedback about after school provision has identified a desire for these clubs to run over more of the year rather than in ten week blocks. 

The money has also been used to buy additional equipment, allowing high quality PE lessons to be delivered within our curriculum lessons, e.g. reverser boards for athletics in the school hall and boxing equipment for Boxercise sessions.  Next year staff have identified a need for more sporting equipment at lunch and playtimes to give the children time to practice skills. 

All but two of our children left Year Six last year able to swim 25 metres confidently as a result of the catch up swimming programme.

School PE and Sport development priorities based on our school context and identified pupil need for 2016-17:

  1. To continue to develop teacher’s skills and knowledge of teaching specific aspects of PE through CPD opportunities, support from Sports Coordinator and through our Leeds Rhino’s partnership – staff have identified a support need for Dance and Games skills this year.
  2. To increase the range, participation and competition in after school clubs through links with local clubs, our Sports Coordinator and school’s within our Trust.
  3. To support the development of sports leaders in school linked to the play leader role in Key Stage One – cascading physical skills to the younger children.
  4. To provide more afterschool club provision for Key Stage 1 children in response to a parent survey.
  5. To track participation and attendance levels of children who may have barriers to participation in after school clubs and try to increase access.
  6. To work with the Trust to ensure that children have access to sport and physical development in the holidays, e.g. Supporting Children’s centre drive on early obesity targets, walks / days out in the summer holidays.
  7. To collect evidence together to apply for the Sainsbury’s games mark and the Youth Sports Trust mark.
  8. To develop standardised assessment judgements for PE as a curriculum across all of the schools in our trust to support better transition to high school and raise standards.

Quality Assurance. What systems are in place to ensure value for money and the involvement of the school leadership team, including the Governing Body, in overseeing the effectiveness of the projects?

The PE policy is written by the PE leader and moderated and evaluated with staff before being reviewed by the Head Teacher and Governors.  The policy is reviewed every three years unless circumstances change.  The Governor subcommittee also evaluate the Sports Premium spending to ensure value for money and links to the school’s objectives.  Evaluations are shared with senior leaders and staff where required.  This ensures that the money is spent on the correct objectives allowing good progress to be made and standards in PE to be raised even further.  Regular discussions between the Head Teacher and PE leader further ensure that the money is having a positive impact on children’s learning. The Sports coordinator role is increasingly being used to assess the skill levels of children across school (as part of a link with sixth form BTEC qualifications).
