PE and Sports Premium Funding

 

Sports Premium funding is provided by the government to all maintained schools in England in order to improve the quality of provision for Physical Education. It is a set amount of money in which the school can spend as they wish on PE and sports.

Here at Kingfield, we have been thinking about what our children need and how we can match these needs and provide all children with memorable experiences and improved learning opportunities.  We have, and will continue to, channel our funding directly into developing the provision of Sport and PE throughout the school. 

The school has received just under £9,000 per year for Sports Premium funding.

Below is a summary of how the latest funding here at Kingfield is being spent and how we are measuring its impact on our children.

Scheme of work

The school has invested significantly in a new PE scheme of work, which focuses on the sports, health and fitness aspects of physical education. Teachers have identified the units of work that they will teach to their class, making sure there is a balance between sporting activities and fitness-specific activities.

Resources

We have set some of the funding aside to provide further resources as we develop PE and sports opportunities during curriculum time (to supplement the new scheme of work), break times and extra-curricular time. This includes hockey, tag rugby, football, tennis equipment, as well as outdoor table tennis equipment and new indoor gymnastic wall bars. We have also bought a new freestanding basketball post. These new resources have ensured that all children have access to the appropriate equipment they need for high quality PE and sports.

Improving opportunities for Inter - School Competitions

The PE subject Leader regularly attends WASP meetings to develop opportunities and links with other local schools, to develop a wider network of competitive sports opportunities. As a result, children (especially boys and girls in Years 5 and 6) have been able to compete in football and netball leagues, as well as indoor athletics, tag rugby and football tournaments. In cases where transport has been an issue, the funding has been used to provide a coach.

Improving opportunities for Intra - School Competitions and extra-curricular clubs

 

Intra-school competition and performance is embedded within the new PE scheme of work at the end of each unit. The PE subject leader and external football coaches have also provided opportunities for children in Key Stages 1 and 2 at lunchtime. Finally, we have also used some funding for an all-day skipping workshop, which will be repeated this year after positive outcomes and feedback from children and staff.

In order to measure the impact of this funding we have been, and will continue to:

  • Speak to the children; measure the interest of children in different areas of the PE curriculum.
  • Track the take up of children attending sports extra-curricular clubs
  • Receive feedback from teachers on the quality of training and impact on their teaching.
  • Feedback from PE Subject Leader carrying out PE observations to monitor improvements in high quality teaching.
