Sports Premium

Introduction

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The purpose of the funding is that schools will have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Our Funding 2015/16

  • 2015/16 - £8,851.00

The funding has been used in the following ways:

  • Subscription to the Handsworth Sports’ Partnership - £3,740
  • Specialist leader of Education - £2,500
  • Youth Sports’ Trust Membership - £255
  • Step 8 Dance - £2,000
  • Health and Well Being Development - £400

The funding has enabled us as a school to improve provision in the following ways:

  • PE specialist has worked alongside PE leader and teachers to raise the profile of PE and sport across the school.
  • The specialist teacher has supported the delivery of PE across the school. This has increased the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Increased involvement in a wide range of inter-school sport competitions over the year including football, rounders, cricket, tennis, golf and athletics.
  • All pupils have access to high quality dance via weekly Step 8 sessions.
  • Increased involvement in intra – school competitions and festivals.
  • Young Leaders training.
  • The number of after school clubs has now increased. This gives more pupils the opportunity to take part in physical sporting clubs each week.
  • Procuring quality-assured professional training for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE and sport via Handsworth Association of Schools and Hamstead Hall Partnership.
  • Employing expert advice to evaluate the school's current strengths and weaknesses in PE and sport, and implement plans for improvement.
  • Providing places for pupils in after-school sport clubs.
  • Providing extra, additional activities such as outdoor and adventurous activities.
  • Access to sporting activities such as canoeing, archery, rock climbing, mountain biking, orienteering via residentials in Years 5 and 6.
  • Additional sports equipment.

The Impact of PE and Sports Premium

  • An increase in pupil engagement with sport and PE.
  • Increased confidence, listening skills and ability to work as a team.
  • A positive impact on physical fitness, healthy lifestyles, skills and behaviour across the school.
  • More pupils are now taking part in sporting activities outside of school – Diamond Football Club, Springfield Tennis Club and Step 8 Dance.

Sustainability has been promoted by:

  • Investing in all staff CPD.
  • Taking into account the availability of local sports clubs when choosing sports to offer as after school and in school activities.
  • Monitoring the impact to inform future spending in this area.
