The Government are continuing with their grant allowance, called the Primary PE and Sport Funding, to support all children and improve the quantity, quality, and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Our Primary and Sport Funding for 2016/2017 was £8694.
At Edenfield C of E Primary School we have decided to use this money for the following:
- Renewing our membership of the Rossendale Sports Partnership enabling all children to take part in inter and intra school competitions
- Appointment of a specialist PE teacher to deliver enhanced after school sports activities including: football, hockey, netball, rugby and gymnastics
- Specialist football coaches to lead after school football clubs for both key stages
- The purchasing of new equipment and resources to expand the range of sporting activities in the school
- The development of the School Sports Crew. A Year 6 pupil lead group who develop interest and participation in PE and sport at school.
- New sporting equipment to use during playtimes to encourage active play and team building skills
- Continued Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for staff to facilitate quality PE teaching
- Forging links and using resources of the local secondary school (Haslingden High School)
- Inviting external sporting organisations (including judo, dance and orienteering specialists) into school to promote sport and outdoor activities
- Supplementing the cost of a Judo coach to deliver specialised coaching including approved examinations
- Annual sports week where a wide range of sporting experts are invited into school to deliver programmes to both key stages – this has included archery, judo, dance, rugby and basketball
- iPads to support and improve children’s performance and to be used as an assessment tool
- Equipment for Lunchtime Leaders club and employment of specialised PE coach to administer and coach pupils to lead the club
- The promotion of the in school ‘Daily Marathon’ challenge – children in every class participate in daily running sessions and collect distance awards which accumulate and become marathon bands. The aim is for every child to complete at least one marathon, or more
Impact of Sports Premium Funding
- The impact of the sports premium funding is increasingly sustainable as 60% of Edenfield teaching staff now deliver the PE curriculum in school ensuring quality PE teaching can be sustained over time, including the training of colleagues by the experienced and highly skilled PE Subject Leader
- This is supported by regular, high quality CPD provided by the Learning Excellence Team
- An increase in the number of children, across both key stages, taking part in sporting extra-curricular activities. All year groups with the exception of Reception are offered opportunities to take part in extra-curricular sporting activities
- An increase in the participation in interschool activities. Over thirty competitions have been entered throughout this academic year with very good outcomes. Competitions attended include: running, kwick cricket, athletics, football, cheerleading, swimming, netball, gymnastics, basketball, orienteering, table tennis and dance.
- Specialist staff training leads to PE lessons that are at least ‘good’ or better
- New updated equipment/resources have improved the quality of lessons
- The use of an iPad supports quality assessment in P.E.
- Greater number of girls taking part in sport and competitions
- An increase of physical activity by all pupils within the school
- Equipment purchased to implement the intraschool competition organised by the School Sports Crew has enabled children from across the school to experience competitions
