PE Funding

PE Primary Funding

The Government have allocated funding to primary schools to develop three key areas of PE.

This funding has been ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on PE and Sports in school.

These three key areas are:

  • Improving the quality of Physical Education
  • Improving the opportunities for competition and school sport, including extra-curricular activities
  • Developing active and healthy lifestyles

To address these key areas we have developed an action plan that can be viewed below.

The funding will be used to address each action plan priority. This will include Staff release time, CPD programmes, schemes of work, equipment, competition entries and extra-curricular activities.

We have received funding for PE this school year to improve the teaching and learning of Physical Education across the school.

We have invested money into our brand new astro turf in the Key Stage 1 yard area – which the children are enjoying using during PE lessons. The children are able to practice key skills such as balancing, dribbling and throwing which are vital for the development of their physical capabilities, talents and sporting opportunities further up the school.

Funding has been used for staff to attend CPD sessions to improve their professional practice in PE so improving the learning opportunities for the children; to further support this we have bought a brand new PE scheme of work which covers gymnastics, dance, athletics and games with which we will engage and encourage all children to enjoy and take part in PE opportunities.

The funding is also paying for external providers to come into school and offer the children wider PE opportunities; one example of this is Aussie Rules football, which the Year 6 children really enjoy! All of these learning experiences offer the children the chance to find a sporting activity that they can enjoy and achieve in, and to also encourage the children to lead active lifestyles.

As part of our extra-curricular opportunities we offer sporting clubs chosen by the ‘Pupil Voice’ to allow children of all ages to engage with sporting activities of their preference.

We are involved in the wider sporting community and encourage sporting opportunities to have a competitive element and therefore we have bought into the school competitions and games programme. The children will be involved in inter-school activities which will allow them all to gain the skills of sportsmanship, teamwork and develop social interactions.

Overall we see PE as a vital part of school where children can use and develop their social, adventurous and resilient learning muscles in a fun and engaging manner. We therefore have invested our funding in opportunities that are sustainable and will benefit children at this school in many years to come.

PE and Sports Funding – Impact report 2015/2016 The Government have allocated funding to primary schools to develop three key areas of PE. This funding has been ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on PE and Sports in school.   These three key areas are:

  • Improving the quality of Physical Education
  • Improving the opportunities for competition and school sport, including extra-curricular activities
  • Developing active and healthy lifestyles

As a school we chose to prioritise:

  • Provide existing staff with training and resources to help them teach high quality PE and sport. (Use of ICT to enhance teaching and learning, new equipment to offer a range of sports.)
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport. (Increase participation of girls in other clubs, offer a variety of clubs, increase number and range of clubs)
  • Increase participation in sports competitions. (Intra and against other schools)

Impact against objectives:

  • After school clubs and participation

Extra-curricular clubs have increased in number and range this year at Denbigh Community Primary School. The data below shows the variety and range of clubs on offer to the children throughout the year compared to data from 2014/2015. We have also introduced Breakfast and Lunchtime clubs. We have increased in the participation numbers of girls across the clubs as opposed to 2014/2015 figures which show the majority of girl places being taken in the Cheerleading club only.

      • Signposting children to outside of school sports clubs/teams and providing clubs for G&T pupils

Case Study 1 – JC The school was asked to choose boys from KS2 that had showed footballing potential, to attend trials after school for a Killingworth Football team. JC was chosen and was invited to go and play for Northumberland FA. He managed to progress through the trails and is now going to team training every week. This event has had a very positive impact on JC’s confidence, participation and behaviour in PE.   Case Study 2 – CB Following on from our Boxing After-School club with Howdon Boxing club CB was invited to join and attend the boxing club outside school hours. CB has attended on a regular basis and is improving his technique as part of Howdon Boxing team.   Case Study 3 – MHo, ME and MH When teaching PE in my Year x class I noticed that there were a lot of talented dancers in the group. I talked to the children about what kind of club they would like to attend – this then led to booking Street Dance and Cheerleading clubs. MHo, ME and MH stood out in the club and were all been signposted to Maureen Slater School of dance and Cheer cats where the children have represented them in competitions.

      • Use of ICT to enhance learning and teaching in PE

The use of ICT in lessons has had a significant impact on the quality of teaching and learning. This impact will be ongoing for pupils throughout the school. Learning walks showed that using Ipads to record children’s activity improved their ability to evaluate their learning and set targets for improvement. Children were also able to view examples of excellent PE practice, such as videos of other pupils or showing Olympic Games clips. The use of Ipads in PE has also improved assessment as we know have a collection of good practice in PE across the school using the Seesaw app. Children also take part in daily morning activity using the GoNoodle website – Every class has 10 minutes of activity at 10am. This has had a very positive impact on concentration and behaviour in the mornings.

      • Spare PE kit and Plimsolls

This has had a huge impact on participation during PE lessons. Children are able to borrow sports kit for their lesson if they have forgotten their own. This has enabled children who were noticed as regular offenders to take part in PE lessons.   School additional money has had an impact on improving the quality of PE:

      • Employment of PE Apprentice

(Training for Level 2 TA qualification) The addition of a PE apprentice has had a very positive impact on the quality of PE within the school. Having a sports specialist apprentice has enabled PE lessons to be differentiated much more effectively, which has seen the quality of teaching and learning significantly improve. This has in turn had a positive impact on the children’s progress in PE. The assessment data for 36 targeted children across the school shows a significant amount of progress. The PE apprentice has also been involved in leading the Energy Club at Breakfast club; supervising children on the school gym at break times; and leading lunch time clubs. This has had a very positive impact on the offer of additional clubs and also training children for competitions.

 

In 2016/2017 we intend to spend the PE and School Sports money to meet the following objectives:

      • Improve the quality of assessment in PE (Use of ICT to assess children and create bank of evidence at levels)
      • Invest in new scheme of work to update and improve teacher confidence and PE knowledge.
      • Target non participating children to take part in additional PE/Sports clubs. (Whole school tracker, PE questionnaire for clubs, less active clubs eg Archery)
      • Flag G&T children and provide opportunities for these children to have opportunities for elite sports experiences. (PE Golden time club, specialist coaches)
      • Increase leadership opportunities for KS2 children. (Play Makers, break time leaders, running sports events, Sports Council)
