Sports Premium Funding 2014/15

"Good use is made of the primary school sport funding. Pupils enjoy good experiences in physical education and sport. They participate in a wide range of activities, such as cross country and orienteering, funded from the primary school sports initiative." OFSTED 2015

Physical Education

Priority - Renewal of resources  £900
Order new equipment so that P.E can be taught effectively and to a high standard. Some equipment is in need of renewing so that pupil participation can be increased and children will be working to a higher standard.

On the whole the resources have been positively used and have aided staff in teaching the children.  Some classes have high percentages of children exceeding expected levels and therefore we can conclude that the resources have had a positive impact on school.

Priority - Legacy sport curriculum support for KS1  £3750
Sports coaches will help guide teacher's through teaching and planning a fundamental skills based curriculum.

Both staff members who have received this training feel that they now have a better understanding of the fundamental skills of literacy and have learnt a great deal over the year. They plan to implement this knowledge into their teaching so that children receive higher quality P.E lessons. The children’s fundamental skills have visibly improved throughout the year after working with the coaches.

Priority - Purchase of FUNs for everyone.  £71
The resource will help guide KS1 teachers in teaching and planning a fundamental skills curriculum.

Mrs Walton has really enjoyed using this resource. She felt it has really helped to differentiate some of the fundamental skills and helped develop clear steps in children strengthening their inner core.

Priority - Assessment criteria for the new curriculum throughout KS1 and 2 will be updated to match the changes.
Due to the changes in the curriculum the current assessment criteria is out of date and needs to be up dated. The P.E co ordinator will attempt to work With Chris Quigley milestones and seek advice from other professionals in the area to update P.E assessment procedures.

The new assessment criteria appears to be working. All staff feel that it is manageable and matches the new curriculum as well as Chris Quigley essentials which is running through school for other subjects. It has helped track children’s attainment accurately and this information has been able to feed into future planning and lessons.

In an  attempt to increase children's physical activity , involvement in sport and aid those children who find playtimes difficult sports leaders will be reactivted at lunchtime. All children who have not reveived training in this area will be offered training after school as part of a club.

All children who attended the training were enthused and have made use of it during their sessions at lunchtime. It had a positive impact on keeping children active during playtime and has helped to prevent arguments.

Priority - OHL after school clubs
Many clubs have been planned for the school year in an attempt to increase children's physical activity and involvement in out of hours learning.

All after school clubs were very successful and the number of children again rose on the previous year. Children’s physical activity throughout the week has increased and a number of children who didn’t involve themselves in school sport previously and shied away from P.E attended and took part in the clubs. Their opinion of sport has now taken a positive turn and their confidence has increased.

Priority - Super Athlete day
In an attempt to encourage children to be more active and to think about others the Super athlete day has been planned for November. This is a sponsored event run by an outside agency in school.

The profile of P.E and school sport was highlighted through this event and children who were nervous of sport now view it as fun and less threatening.

A danceshowecase will be held in the Spring term at Whitcliffe Mount so that all children attending dance club can display their dance skills to an audience.

The showcase was a great success and gave children the opportunity to perform in front of others. As a result of this children displayed more confidence during dance lessons and some auditioned for Scholes has got talent.

Priority - Sports Day
Sports Day is planned yet again for the summer term so children can compete within school with each other in a fun and active way.

Sports day was a special event where children were able to experience the value of team work within intra school competition.  Children who were highly successful in sport experienced the value of helping those who find it more difficult so that their team would achieve success.

School Improvement Priorities
 

Priority - Gifted and Talented
Children who are gifted and talented in school are recognised and extra provisions will be made for them accademically. In P.E children will also be pointed in the direction of club sporting teams in our local area.

Lessons were differentiated accordingly during lessons and children who showed promise or enjoyment in a certain area were encouraged to attend after school clubs.

Priority - Behaviour and Safety
Children are encouraged to recognise risks and manage them as the they occur. In P.E STEP (space, task, equipment, people) is used to help them recognise this.
All staff have high expectations of children's behaviour. A number of strategies are used to encourage good behaviour as well as children being given responsibilities and roles within school so that a mature, responsible attitude is fostered by children in school.

To develop children’s focus on safety during school sport STEPS is displayed and teachers constantly draw attention to this during lessons.  An assembly was held to demonstrate how to carry apparatus correctly.  This had a positive impact on children’s safety as children then carried equipment correctly.

Priority - Gymnastic coach to boost staffs confidence when teaching gymnastics. £300

Staff feel that they would benefit from increasing their subject knowledge and confidence in this area of the subject so that their lessons are more challenging and as a result children's achievement in this area will increase.
