Sports Premium

Victoria Park Primary School

PE Funding 2016/17

 

What is it?

Since 2013, the government has provided additional sport funding to schools. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. Each school will receive £8000 plus an extra £5 per pupil. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

 

How much sport premium money did we receive in 2016/17?

At Victoria Park Primary, we receive £9,920.  We have decided to prioritise:

  • staff training to ensure the funding has a lasting impact on our school
  • increasing the range of extra-curricular opportunities
  • increasing access to intra and inter-school sports competition, including through membership of Ashton Park Sports Partnership (click here to find out more about their work)
  • employing sports coaches to work alongside our school staff
  • providing all children with the opportunity to engage in new sports and activities

 

What benefits are there?

Through sport children can develop skills and attitudes that will carry them through to adulthood. Through sport children can develop confidence, self-esteem, resilience, cooperation, team work, health and fitness, turn taking, coping with success and losing, conflict resolution, determination, aspiration and desire and well-being – amongst many others. Through sport children can learn to play sports and take part in activities and give them the confidence to join clubs and activities outside of school.

 

What does the Sport Premium mean for my school?

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

 

At Victoria Park Primary School we have split up the funding into three different areas: Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:

Impact - 2015-2016

We know that the sports premium funding is having a positive impact on our school because we have :

  • Achieved Sainsbury’s School Games Bronze award
  • Encouraged participation in extra curricular sport - 41%  just in term 1 and 2 (expected to rise throughout year)
  • Added tag rugby and cross country to house competitions
  • Held a healthy school week when all children tried various forms of physical activity
  • Increased the number of sports clubs we have links with and held an open afternoon when these clubs came in to advertise their clubs
  • Provided weekly 'Energy Club' for Year 1 (on a termly rotation)
  • Involved more children in leading sports events and activities including playground leaders, ‘Energy Club’ volunteers, and house captains assisting in the organisation and running of house competitions 
  • Have seen a noticeable difference in the success of our children at inter-school competition (for example children were recently chosen to take part in the South Bristol Team in the Bristol cross country race after impressive performances in the Ashton Park Cross Country Race
  • Raised the profile of sport through use of website, sports newsletter, termly sports assemblies and healthy schools week
  • Decreased the number of children leaving school unable to swim 25 metres due to the additional swimming sessions they have received
  • Participated in 95% of the competitive opportunities offered by the Ashton Park School Sports Partnership so far this year
  • Enhanced the provision of clubs and continued the football development squad which has proved to be a great success and we now have 30 participants.
  • Developed a Malago Football friendly league to provide extra opportunities for the football squad to experience competition against other schools

 

To be able to provide engaging and exciting sporting clubs, we have invested in purchasing new equipment and employing TAs to to help with the delivery of these clubs. Since the introduction of the sports premium funding there has been a steady increase in the number of children attending clubs.

 

  • From 2013-2015 the number of children attending clubs has increased to 45% (this is the autumn term figure) – Further analysis required to determine the % of children who have taken part across the whole year.

 

This year we aim to maintain the numbers of children regularly taking part in clubs as well as offering them an increased variety of clubs.

Increase the number of children who can swim 25m by the end of Year 6.

 

In Years 4 and 5 the children are given the opportunity to have swimming lessons at Bristol South Swimming Pool. The progress the children make is carefully tracked. Children that may not reach the 25m target are identified early and given the opportunity to take part in extra catch-up swimming sessions. As you can see below, the catch-up swimming sessions are having a positive impact on the number of children reaching 25m across KS2.

Increase the number of sports the children can represent the school in.

 

As a school we have continued to dramatically increase the number of opportunities the children have to represent the school within different sports. Not only have we increased the number of sporting events we attend outside of school, we are also continuing our intra-house competitions where an increasing number of children can take part. These competitions have included both KS1 and KS2.
