PE and Sport Premium Grant 2018/19

NORTHFIELD ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL

 

What is it?

The PE and Sport Premium Grant provides ring-fenced money to primary school Head teachers to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is currently worth £150million per year and is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

In February 2014, it was announced that the Government have committed to funding the Primary PE and Sport Premium to 2020.

Since 2017/18 the DFE are approximately doubling the grant as part of their National Obesity Plan.

For the current academic year, 2018/19, Northfield Road Primary School will receive £19,410.

 

Northfield Road’s Overall Aim for P.E and Sport

“Every child has the right to enjoy increased participation in sporting activities and develop a healthier lifestyle and mind set.” (Right Respecting Articles – 6, 28, 29, 31)

 

Northfield Road’s Sports Premium Funding Objectives

  1. To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy and have a broader exposure to a range of sports.

 

  1. To ensure that all pupils improve their health, sports skills, emotional well-being and physical literacy.

 

  1. To increase participation levels in both extra-curricular and competitive sport, involving pupil leadership/teams to improve the healthy activity of all pupils.

 

  1. To give all pupils an opportunity to experience a wide range of sporting activities throughout the year.

 

 What will we spend the PE and Sport Grant on in 2018/19?

  • Ensure all pupils can swim the required 25m by purchasing extra swimming opportunities for Year 6 in addition to those already provided for in Year 3.
  • Fund 50% of a weekly dance programme provided by Dudley Performing Arts.
  • Provide Key Stage 1 (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) with a specialist sports coach to improve the children’s physical and cognitive awareness, as well as provide staff with invaluable CPD.
  • Purchase resources to enhance the learning and teaching of PE and support the current programme of study.
  • Install sports-specific playground improvements for the whole school increasing sports participation and increase the number of sports and physical activities offered at our school.
  • Take part in a 30-week Yoga Bug programme for Years 2, 3 and 4. This aims to improve concentration and behaviour as well as provide a parental workshop and a staff CPD session.
  • Provide organised sports provision at lunch times with a sports coach to manage Sports Leaders.
  • Provide a sports coach in Upper Key Stage 2 to support children in transitioning from skills based games to sports-specific sports and skills. Provide staff with increased CPD.

 

Swimming

As part of the National Curriculum, students should be given swimming instruction in either KS1 or KS2, to ensure that they are able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.  

Evidence and Impact:

When analysing last Year’s impact, we found that the number of children that could swim unassisted for the 25m at the end of Year 3 was 14/56 children (25%). Although this statistic has improved from the following year, as a school we felt this number was still too low so we provided extra swimming tuition for Year 6 in a 5-week booster programme. We are very pleased with the impact this has made with the number of children, in Year 6, who can swim unassisted for 25 metres now being 37/60 62%

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

We aim to continue to increase the number of children by the end of Year 6 that can swim unassisted for 25m, by providing swimming instruction in the summer term in Year 6, again with the initial introduction being in Year 3. We believe, that by providing extra swimming tuition in Year 6, we will have a higher percentage of children who will become competent, confident and proficient swimmers. We will measure the impact of our swimming tuition by calculating the percentage of pupils who can swim unassisted a distance of at least 25 metres by the end of Year 6.

Projected Impact:  

We aim to continue to increase the number of children that can swim unassisted for 25m each year by the end of Year 6.

Funding Allocated:  £400

 

Dance Programme

We are using the PE and Sport Grant to fund 50% of a weekly dance programme provided by Dudley Performing Arts. Once a week we will have an ‘Artist in Residence’ visit the school who will work with all year groups throughout the academic year.

Evidence and Impact:

This year, 398/398 (100%) of children received top quality coaching in dance which has led to pupils joining dance clubs outside of school. Dance continues to break down gender-specific sports within our school. This is a 15% improvement form last year as we were able to provide dance instruction for Reception.  

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

We aim to continue to provide children receiving top quality coaching in dance to all year groups next year. This will lead to sustainability and provide CPD opportunities for all staff and increase their subject knowledge and allow them to feel more confident to deliver dance lessons both within and outside of the curriculum.

Projected Impact:

We will continue provide all children in our school with top quality coaching in dance.

Funding Allocated:  £600

 

 

Specialist Sports Coach for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 (KS1)

An evaluation of the whole school P.E programme, through teacher feedback and meetings with SLT, showed us that the biggest need was expertise in teaching Early Years PE. This year we have continued to address this issue with the same specialist Early Years sports coach for the whole year. The hiring of this coach has been another major success. Not only are the children developing key fundamental motor skills, the staff are also receiving excellent CPD training at the same time. We believe this to be an excellent combination for future sustainability. Building on from this success, we have extended our sports provision right across KS1 by providing Year 2 with the same quality coaching and CPD.  

Evidence and Impact:

Physical Development (Reception)

   

 

 
Group Baseline: End of October 2018/19
All Children (60) Are:    23%

 

Group End Point: End of March 2018/19
All Children (60) Are:     55%

 

Group End Point: End of July 2018/19
All Children (60 Are:    80%

100% of children in KS1 are now receiving top quality coaching which has increased from 68%.

 

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

Staff will work together and share good practice which will lead to better confidence. Staff will also be more motivated and enthused to deliver quality first PE lessons. This will allow the school to be independent when teaching P.E and sport.

Projected Impact:

In order to improve progress and achievement of all pupils the focus is on up-skilling the staff. We will receive constant feedback from staff to analyse confidence and good practice in PE. We will also conduct lesson observations to support staff. By the end of the year we aim to reduce the percentage of slow movers to 0%.

Funding Allocated: £2,000

 

 

Specialist Sports Coaches Upper Key Stage 2 (Year 5 and 6)

To provide the children with the skills needed to transition to more sports specific skills in secondary education and to assess these skills we have hired sports coaches for Years’ 5 and 6. We felt as a school that the success and progress made in KS1 with the introduction of a sports coach could not be ignored. Again we wanted to provide children with quality coaching and invaluable CPD for staff.

Evidence and Impact:

We have increased the number of children receiving top quality coaching in years 5 and 6 to 100% with an added 7 members of staff receiving sustainable CPD. This has increased the number of teaching staff receiving CPD across the school in some form of physical activity or sport to 86% 12/14.   

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

Staff will work together and share good practice which will lead to better confidence and all round be more motivated and enthused to get involved with planning their own PE lessons. We will also look at the possibility of extending the amount of CPD to all teaching staff.

Projected Impact:

In order to improve progress and achievement of all pupils the focus is on up-skilling the staff. We will receive constant feedback from staff to analyse confidence and good practice in PE. By the end of the year we aim to extend the amount of CPD to all teaching staff. 14/14 100%.

Funding Allocated: £2,700

 

 

 

 

 

Lunch Time Supervision of Sports Activities/Extra-curricular Sports Clubs

This year, again due to lack of space, we have hired a sports coach for our playground. The coach works alongside our Sports Leaders and lunch time supervisors to set up and organise sporting activities for our children. In addition to this, we continue to provide a range of extra-curricular after school sports clubs.

Evidence and Impact:

Based on the year groups taking part in organised sporting activities (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6), we can estimate that 56% of children now take part in organised physical activity at least once a week. Last year, based on 4 weekly extra-curricular after school sports clubs 35% of children received top quality coaching, in a variety of different sports.   

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

To continue to provide and increase leadership opportunities for our Sports Leaders, we will increase the number of Sports Leaders as well as provide Year 2 with organised sporting activities at lunchtime. We also aim to increase the number of children taking part in physical activity after school and continue to support Dudley’s Obesity plan by introducing another after school club aimed at those children in Years 3 and 4 who are considered inactive and do not attend any extra-curricular clubs. We will also look at being able to fund some of the after school clubs, focusing on those pupils who receive FS meals and are on the pupil premium register.

Projected Impact:

Increase the number of children taking part in organised physical activity at lunchtimes to 71% by introducing this to Year 2. Increase the number of extra-curricular after school clubs to 5 per week increasing participation to 24.5% with a focus on children who have FS meals and are on the pupil premium register.

Funding Allocated: £510

 

 

Sport Equipment and Transport for Competitions (School Games Mark)

We will continue to use the PE and Sport Premium Grant to update PE equipment and add new sporting opportunities for our pupils, for example, this academic year we have purchased new tennis balls so that we can continue to provide tennis for all children at lunch times and during PE lessons. Other resources include: sponge balls, four-square balls and hurdles. In achieving the ‘Silver Games Mark’ award this year, we will now strive to sustain the ‘Silver Games Mark’ again and look at the possibility of being able to staff more teams for competitions to achieve the ‘Gold Games Mark’ in the future. We will need to cover transport costs to and from sporting competitions.

Evidence and Impact:

Last year, achieving the School Games Mark showed our ongoing commitment to increase participation levels in a wide range of competitive sport along with extra-curricular activities which has helped us achieve and sustain this award in combination with the provision of high quality PE and physical activity in our school. The number of children taking part in competitive sport was 20%.

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

We aim to increase the number of children taking part in competitive sport by providing more opportunities. This will allow us to sustain the ‘Silver Games Mark’ again and possibly improve this to the ‘Gold Games Mark’ the following year.

Projected Impact:

Increase number of children participating in competitive sport to 25%.

Funding Allocated: £500

 

Yoga Bugs Programme

In the Autumn Term 2019, Yoga Bugs will be introduced to Year 2, Year 3 in the Spring Term and Year 4 in Summer 2020. Yoga Bugs aims to improve children’s emotional and physical literacy, to increase confidence levels and overall well-being, as well as to educate children about the importance of living healthy active lifestyles.

Evidence and Impact:

Yoga bugs will introduce children to the benefits of yoga through fun story style adventures, providing cross-curricular links. Furthermore, Yoga Bugs aims to introduce a beneficial, unique and physical programme that can be accessed by all. Impact will be measured through assessment sheets provided by the Yoga Bugs coach.

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

The Yoga Bugs programme will be broken down into x3 10 week, 1 hour sessions. Staff will work together and share good practice which will lead to better confidence and all round be more motivated and enthused to get involved with planning their own PE lessons.

Projected Impact:

Increase and broaden experiences of a range of sports and activities offered to pupils. Increase number of staff who receive CPD to increase confidence and subject knowledge from 29% to 72%

Funding Allocated: £2,500

 

 

Sports-Specific Playground Improvements

We have had many meetings and discussions and have now received three quotes from three different companies.

Evidence and Impact:

To provide maximum whole school impact and to make improvements now that will benefit all children in future years, we are currently in the process of finalising playground sporting aids. This will also support the lunchtime sports coach and sports leaders in organising sporting activities and allow for the increase of sports participation in our school.

Sustainability and Suggested Next Steps:

We are continuing to receive advice and ideas with regard to our playground improvements and will finalise this shortly. We aim to ensure that any improvements made can be accessed by all children in our school.

Projected Impact:

Increase participation of all pupils using sporting aids on the playground to 100%. Increase the number of organised activities using playground sporting aids to 100% of pupils.

Funding Allocated: £10,200 (Including Installation)
