The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at The Richard Heathcote CP School 2018/2019

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 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 sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

 

Purpose of funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding include:

How will The Richard Heathcote CP School be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?

At our school, we believe that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that pupil participation in sport is high, that the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

 

Below shows how the school intend to spend the sports funding during 2018-2019

Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE

This year the school has hired the services of Port Vale. This will benefit all children and teaching staff from the Foundation Stage through to Year 6. Each week the coaches will work with all classes, attending every Tuesday throughout the academic year. Not only will the children benefit from being taught by a specialist coach, but our own staff, both teaching and lunchtime, will be developed through working alongside specialist to deliver high quality and engaging sessions. Some sessions will also be dedicated to gifted and talented children; enhancing health and well-being amongst children, especially those who are overweight or obese and offering inter school competitions on a termly basis.

Increasing participation in school sport

As well using the Port Vale coaching staff to deliver high quality PE lessons alongside the class teacher, they will also deliver a weekly after school football club with the aim to develop our football talent and ultimately result in forming our own football team who will play in local school’s competitions.  Three additional after school clubs will be run by Premier Sport to encourage extra-curricular participation in both key stages. These clubs may involve learning a new sport, or improving in a familiar sport, with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment! We have also enrolled our Year 2 children into Stoke City’s, City 7’s club. 

 

How will we measure the impact?

We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made both formally and informally using Premier Sports’ assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.

 

At the end of the year we will be reporting on the impact that the funding has had at our school and will be setting out our plans to further develop this in 2019.

Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE

The school has continued to hire the services of Premier Sport. This will benefit all children and teaching staff from the Foundation Stage through to Year 6. Each term the coaches will work with a different year group, attending every Thursday afternoon throughout the academic year. Not only will the children benefit from being taught by a specialist coach, but our own staff, both teaching and lunchtime, will be developed through working alongside specialist to deliver high quality and engaging sessions. Some sessions will also be dedicated to gifted and talented children; enhancing health and well-being amongst children, especially those who are overweight or obese and offering inter school competitions on a termly basis.

Increasing participation in school sport

As well using the Premier Sport coaching staff to deliver high quality PE lessons alongside the class teacher, they will also deliver a weekly lunchtime sports club. This initiative aims to increase participation in competition practice whilst continuing to promote positive playground behaviour, through channeling the children’s’ energy into sporting activities. Two after school clubs will be run by Premier Sport to encourage extra curricular participation in both key stages. The lunchtime club may involve learning a new sport, or improving in a familiar sport, with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment! We will also seek the support of Stoke City in training our lunchtime assistants and playground leaders. They will be taught how to set out the equipment to allow for games to take place during lunchtimes.
