Sports Premium

PE Premium at Sharps Copse 2015/16

What is Sports Funding?

The PE and Sports Funding is a government scheme which is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sports activities they offer to children in schools. Sharps Copse Primary School receives sports funding based on the number of children in Years 1-6. There are a number of ways the funding can be used to improve the quality of the PE and sports activities in schools.

For example, schools can use funding to:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers
  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • Provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
  • Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Run sports activities with other schools

Schools which receive PE and sport premium funding, must publish details of how the school spends the funding and the effect it has had on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment. It must include the following:

  • your PE and sport premium allocation for the current academic year.
  • details of how you intend to spend your allocation.
  • details of how you spent your previous academic year’s allocation.
  • how it made a difference to the PE and sport participation and attainment of the pupils who attract the funding.

Allocation of funding for 2015/2016 academic year

In the 2015/2016 academic year Sharps Copse Primary School was awarded £9,226 of Sports Funding. 

Spending of 2015/2016 funding

  • The funding was used to part pay for a specialist PE teacher and teaching assistant to provide quality delivery across the school during curriculum time and providing extra-curricular opportunities.
  • The funding was also used to pay for affiliation to the Havant and Waterlooville School Sport Partnership competitions to give children a wide range of competitive sporting opportunities.
  • Some funding was used to improve and develop active playground resources including two fixed goal posts and basketball nets.
  • Whilst the Lead PE Teacher went on maternity leave, we also used some of the funding to employ a gymnastic specialist and cricket coach.

Impact of funding in 2015/2016

  • The quality of PE teaching across the school is good or better enabling the children in KS1 and KS2 to develop age appropriate skills.
  • The extra-curricular opportunities available to the children were diverse. This enabled all children the opportunity to choose from a range of activities available and as a result we saw an increase in participation levels including those specifically targeted e.g. KS1 and Pupil Premium children.

  • The employment of a specialist gymnastics teacher enabled KS1 to have a wider curriculum coverage. The cricket coach introduced some of our children to the sport and developed throwing and catching skills as well as batting techniques.

Allocation of funding for 2016/2017 academic year

In the 2016/2017 academic year, Sharps Copse Primary School was awarded £9,266 of Sports Funding.

 Spending of 2016/2017 funding

  • The funding will be used to part pay for a specialist PE teacher to continue to provide quality delivery across the school during curriculum time and providing/arranging extra-curricular opportunities.
  • Resourcing – some of the PE equipment resourcing is linked to the under developed physical skills highlighted in Year R’s school development plan targets. The current Year 1 need to develop their muscle strength as well as coordination. Some of the money will be used to purchase specific equipment/resourcing necessary for this. E.g. Dough Gym, additional multi skills equipment, gymnastic balance snakes.
  • Year 3/4 swimming and Yoga to aid concentration. Cricket coaching with the Chance to Shine Project will continue.
  • The funding will also be used to pay for affiliation to the Havant and Waterlooville School Sport Partnership competitions to once again give children a wide range of competitive sporting opportunities.
  • Training opportunities for the staff – in-house and off site courses.
  • One of the biggest issues is children have no appropriate PE kit and therefore we would like to use some monies to provide access to a spare PE kit so that no child misses out on their PE lessons.

Impact of funding in 2016/2017 To be measured.
