PHYSICAL EDUCATION (PE) AND SPORTS PREMIUM 2019-2020
Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, and increase participation in PE and Sport. The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school and a lump sum.
At Alwoodley Primary School the PE Leader, Mr Moorhouse, has the responsibility for developing PE and Sport and deciding upon the effective use of Sport Premium Funding. Our school already has an excellent reputation for Sport and P.E. and we are proud of all of our sporting achievements. We welcome the additional funding, which will further enhance our provision and provide additional opportunities for increased participation.
The document at the bottom of this page (Evidencing Impact of Sports Premium Funding) shows how Alwoodley Primary School intends to spend the 2019/2020 Sports Premium money (£19,650)
It is important to us at Alwoodley Primary School that our Sports Premium funding is spent in a sustainable way which actively promotes sport and physical activity, encourages children to participate, increases pupil engagement and has a positive impact on pupil's physical fitness, healthy lifestyles, skills and behaviour.
We do this by:
- Investing in our staff CPD through coaching provided by specialist sports coaches and specialist P.E. teachers;
- Using the expertise we have within our own staff to support, coach and train other members of staff;
- Using the funding to make it possible for our children to participate in sports competitions and tournaments during and outside of school time;
- Supporting the provision of sports after school clubs;
- Monitoring the impact to inform future spending;
- Purchasing sports and playground equipment to support active learning
Impact Statement 2019
(based on use of 2018-2019 Sport Premium Funding)
- Pupil participation in sporting activity remains high as a result of our
membership to Active Schools. All classes receive a minimum of 2 hours PE
per week and an increased number of pupils participated in extra-curricular activity in the 2018 - 2019 academic year.
- There has been another increase on previous year in the schools participation
in sporting competitions and festivals in school and beyond. Some of these competitions include football, netball, tennis, cricket, dance, skipping, athletics, hockey, rounders, dodgeball and cycling.
- Active Schools’ membership has had a significant impact on improved sports
provision at Alwoodley Primary School. It also provides access to high quality
facilities, equipment and professional expertise. It will continue to be a priority for funding. Data upon increased participation is available.
- The school participated in more sporting events as a result of additional
funding for coaches and transport.
- For the fourth consecutive year, the school achieved the Gold ‘School Games Award’ as part of this initiative. This academic year (2019/2020) we will be applying for the Platinum award
- The payment of coaches to organise and teach after school sports has ensured
that there is a wide range of activities on offer for children and that
participation levels remain high. This forms a small part of our sporting
provision as staff also provide sports clubs and support children at a variety of sports competitions.
- Continued activity in other curriculum areas as a result of Maths of the Day
subscription and training; Alwoodley adopt a whole school active ethos.
- We support partners from beyond our own school setting with PE and sport
initiatives. For example a group of School Direct students were trained in PE
at our setting and they received additional training around how to plan
active lessons with our subject leader.
- Increased levels of activity at playtimes as a result of the investment in
playground leaders. Playground leader staff have targeted specific pupils
(for example PP) to get involved in active playtimes.
- Links have been made with the local high school and Leeds Beckett University
to promote even more activity at playtimes with our playground leaders.
- Y3/4 participating in 1K a day (Spring and Summer terms) and recording their
own personal best times. This has proved very motivational for those children
who do not want to participate in competition against others and meets one of the requirements of personal challenge as part of the 'School Games Award'.
- A group of Year 4 girls took part in a 5km Park Run challenge as part of their Mini-Mermaids club. This was an initiative to engage young girls with a personal challenge and was very successful. Double the funding will be allocated this academic year to ensure more girls are able to access this club.
- Evidence of high levels of participation is available through club registers.
- Increased opportunity for swimming resulted in the majority of our pupils
being able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance
of at least 25 metres by the end of Y6.
