School Sports Premium

The government provides additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This amounts to approximately £9,000 of funding for sport at our school and this money is ring-fenced. It will provide new and exciting opportunities for all of our children to engage in additional sporting and physical activities.

Here is a brief overview of some of the key opportunities that our children have received from our £9,250 in 2013/14:

  • We have joined a cluster of schools in a partnership led by Primrose Hill Primary School. This is an initiative that allows 7 local primary schools to meet on a half-termly basis to participate in an all-day sports competition. This also allows for the full participation of every child in Key Stage 2 (148 children) in competitive sport during the academic year. (Cost £500)
  • We have begun extending the amount of clubs in our school and have paid specialists to lead both a Girls’ Football Club (Faye) and Street Dance (Georgina). These clubs have targeted children who would not normally have taken part in clubs and more new clubs will begin in the Summer Term. (Cost £4,000)
  • Money has been spent on new specialist P.E. equipment to provide opportunities for children with Special Educational Needs to take part in sporting activities. This includes a new Boccia set for our Camden leading Boccia team. (£3,500)
  • New climbing equipment in our Nursery that will allow children to build up their core strength. (Cost £1,000)

Here is a brief overview of some of the key opportunities that our children have received from our £9,250 in 2014/15:

  • Paid for subscription of CSSA competitions (allowing the school to enter a wide range of competitive sporting events) and a fee to Camden to allow us to take part in inclusive events. (Cost £900)
  • Children were asked what new clubs they would like to have in our school. As a result of this, 3 new clubs were formed (Year 1-2 football, Gymnastics, Dodgeball). The sports premium money was used to pay for staffing coaches and specialists (gymnastics) in delivering these clubs. (Cost £4,500)
  • We have continued Street Dance and Zumba after school clubs (Georgina) and included special extra sessions in school targetting the children in the EYFS.  (Cost £2,000)
  • Money has been spent on new P.E. equipment to provide opportunities for children in the new clubs that have been set up and updating and improving PE equipment that we have in school. We also pay Sportsafe to audit our equipment and ensure that the equipment is safe and they carry out repairs where necessary. (Cost £2,000)

Here is a brief overview of some of the key opportunities that our children will be receiving from our £9,250 in 2015/16:

  • Continued subscription of CSSA competitions (allowing the school to enter a wide range of competitive sporting events) and a fee to Camden to allow us to take part in inclusive events. This year we will be entering every competition that we can (including inclusive competitions) as we now have a dedicated PE PPA cover teacher. (Cost £900)
  • Continuing the new clubs that the children asked for last year. The clubs are (Year 1-2 football, Gymnastics, Dodgeball) and are always full. The sports premium money is being used to pay for staffing coaches and specialists (gymnastics) in delivering these clubs. (Cost £4,500)
  • The children now get to compete in lots of competitive sport as part of the CSSA in after school competitions. Money will spent on adult coaches and supervisors to ensure children are able to go to these competitions e.g. Netball League, Football League, Benchball Competitions, Dodgeball Competitions. (Cost £800)
  • Money will be spent on new P.E. equipment to cater for the new PE deal that the children are getting in the school. This includes extra resources for the new PPA cover PE teacher to teach high quality sessions. It also includes resources for new competitions that we are entering at school that we have not entered before e.g. tag rugby belts, wooden hockey sticks, netballs, tennis nets. Money will also be allocated to new EYFS equipment to ensure that the children are building on a variety of core skills they need to develop.(Cost £2,000)
  • We pay Sportsafe to audit our equipment and ensure that the equipment is safe and they carry out repairs where necessary. (Cost £200 approx)
  • The school is having a focus on skipping during playtimes. We will be having a skipping day in school that involves bringing in a skipping expert that will encourage children to skip at playtime. Money will also be spent on ensuring we have enough skipping ropes. (Cost £600)

Impact

  • The school will be taking part in upto 30 competitive CSSA events (including inclusive ones) during this academic year. This is up from 12 events last year and 6 events 3 years ago. New events include Tag Rugby, Netball, Tri-Golf, Hockey, Basketball, Inclusive Basketball and Benchball. The aim of the school is that every single child in Key Stage 2 will take part in at least one event (two if possible) during the school year. Previously, it was likely that only half of our children would have access to competitive sport against other schools and many children would only take part in one event.
  • Before the School Sports Premium started, we only had 2 sports clubs in our school, Year 5-6 boys football and Cricket. Only 20 children accessed these clubs of which around 3-4 girls would take part. This is a percentage of around 8% participation, with around only 1% of this being made up of girls accessing sports clubs.
  • We now have 8 sports clubs in our school. They are Cricket, Year 5-6 football (boys), Gymnastics, Year 1-2 mixed football, Year 3-4 mixed football, Dodgeball, Athletics and Year 5-6 football (girls). There are currently 82 different children out of 179 from Key Stage 1 and 2 accessing sports clubs. This is a percentage of 46% participation in our sports clubs, with around 18% of this being made up of girls.

2016-2017 PE Sports Grant

Continued subscription of CSSA competitions (allowing the school to enter a wide range of competitive sporting events) and a fee to Camden to allow us to take part in inclusive events. This year we will be entering every competition that we can (including inclusive competitions) as we now have a dedicated PE extra-curricular sports coordinator. (Cost £1,600)  The competitions that we have entered are: Netball League, Football League, Bench ball Competitions, Dodge ball Competitions. We came second in the netball but are continuing to improve our skills in other areas.

We continued the new clubs that the children asked for last year. The clubs are (Year 1-2 football, Gymnastics, Dodgeball) and are always full. The sports premium money is being used to pay for staff coaches and specialists (gymnastics) in delivering these clubs. (Cost £7,075) The following clubs are now sustainable – ks1/ks2 dodgeball, gymnastics, football ks1/ks2, and cricket, so will now be taken over by after school clubs and the funding will now be re-allocated to new clubs.

Money was spent on new P.E. equipment to cater for the new PE offer that the children are getting in the school. Netball nets, bibs, footballs, tennis balls, tennis net, sports leaders tops. (£1,850)

We paid Sportsafe to audit our equipment and ensure that the equipment is safe and carry out repairs where necessary. (Cost £300 approx) This year they also replaced and moved the climbing apparatus after the hall floor was completed.

We now have some sports coaches in the school who work with the children from The ELMS. (£5,438)

Impact

All children in year 3 have attended at least one competition last year.

We attended a sports event at Holloway School with a group of year 4/5 children. The children worked with the school’s sports leaders in developing game skills.

The children are more confident in taking part in sports events and are keen to try out new sports and challenges.

2017-18 financial year:

Introduce a dance club to help develop girl’s fitness levels.

An inclusive SEND lunchtime club, as many children cannot access after school sports clubs due to transport.

Raise the participation in sports competitions, especially inclusive events.
