SPORTS PREMIUM FUNDING 2016-2017

 

What is PE Sport Funding?

The Government provides additional funding for physical education (PE) and sport in schools. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision resulting in increased numbers of pupils developing healthy life styles, raising their performance levels and engaging in PE and sport.


The additional PE and sport funding allocated to Nafferton Primary School for the 2016 / 2017 academic year is £9807.19 (including carry forward).

 

Every year we as a school are responsible for reporting how, where and why the sports funding is spent as it is.

 

In response to parents’ questionnaires.

Again, as in previous years, we parents have raised issue and concerns regarding the number of clubs which are provided for Key Stage 1 parents. This year we have continued to run clubs in the same as in previous years. We have again used spirts funding to provide a free extra-curricular club for Year 1 whilst a yoga teaching course for a member of staff, which was partly funded by a previous year’s sports fund, has now led to a Year 3 and Year 2 Yoga Club being put in place.

 

To improve our already high skills base.

Whilst we have a teaching team that is already very competent at sport, ranging from rugby, football and hockey specialists to dance and yoga specialists, there is always more to learn and different ideas to try. Therefore the Year 2 and 3/4 teachers have been working with the First Steps coach to extend and deliver the PE curriculum for outdoor games in these year groups.

 

To enhance our clubs.

Some of the money has been used to pay for entrance fees and transport to competitions and to purchase equipment. Particular financial support for hockey and yoga have been put in place to purchase new yoga mats and smaller hockey sticks for younger players. We have also paid for a professional dance coach to work with the dance club on Monday nights whose expertise then supports school productions such as the end of year Year 6 Summer production.

 

To play in competitions with other schools.

We have set up a Driffield sports cluster and this has been running a whole range of activities – football, cross country, hockey etc. Some of the money has been used to pay for a coordinator for the cluster. The Y5/6 hockey team also requires a full goalkeeper kit to compete in England Hockey activities. Whilst this has been borrowed from the local hockey club, the sports fund is being used to gradually build up the school’s own full kit.

 

Transport

This is a major cost for our school, so we are using some of the money to subsidise transport, a coach to Driffield is at least £100. Transport to Sportshall Athletics for Y3/4 and Y5/6 in Driffield was heavily subsidised by the sports fund. The Y5/6 team’s success at the Driffield round meant further funding was also used to subsidise transport to the Level 2 competition at Beverley Longcroft School.

 

Over and above

Our funding for sport this year exceeds that of sports funding. The school budget, parent contributions and raised funds through the summer’s sponsorship event with Sports4School also contributes to the school’s sports needs.  Y4 swimming lessons are fully funded by the school budget.


Basic cost.

*We have had to purchase more equipment for PE, such as new skipping ropes and hockey sticks.

 

More activities

We are again sending Year 3 and Year 4 swimming. Although the PE curriculum has been redrafted in recent years, we still send Y3 for their 1st input of swimming teaching in the summer term which is then supported a year later.

 

Releasing teachers

Some funding is used to pay for support and supply staff to cover teachers who are required to attend matches, sports partnership meetings, support swimming, support adventuresome activities e.g. Robinwood and Cranedale.

 

How is it spent?

At Nafferton School, we have looked into a number of different ways to use this funding in order to support the participation of pupils aged 4-11, all the way through the school, through the purchase of resources, employment of external coaches and teachers, and to partially fund sports trips and events. Below is a more precise breakdown of the way this year’s sports funding has been allocated so far.

What is the impact of the additional PE funding on pupils?

  • Funding used to develop the curriculum through visits and visitors to support new curriculum. The use of funding for professional dance teachers for Samba (Y6) made a real impact on the children last year and is planned for the curriculum again this year.
  • Funding used to employ external coaching through First Steps Sport, ReMarkable, ERYC swim coaches and Goalsports for PE & Games sessions. 93% of children in school benefitted in some way from employed external coaching (YF & KS1 through First Steps Sports Coaches, Y3 & Y4 Swimming and First Steps Sports, Y5 & Y6 Remarkable dance and Goalsports) Approximately 40% of children in school have benefitted from sessions led by coaches from 2 of these organisations.
  • Funding used to purchase equipment and resources. This year, this has been limited to purchase of hockey goalkeeper equipment which is used by the school hockey club and in games lessons.
  • Enthusiasm and positive feedback from children and staff following sessions / activities support decisions made. Children enjoy sessions with Goalsports and First Steps Sports. Dance club continues to be successful. Swimming, as always, remains a vital life skill which we will always support.

 

Curriculum Balance

  • Sports funding has been allocated across a balance of year groups and curriculum areas. Spending covers Foundation up to Year 6. Spending is spread across all areas from Hockey to Dance. Spending supports curriculum time (First Steps Sport lessons, swimming lessons, Goalsports lesson coaching), extra-curricular clubs (hockey club, dance club, Jumping Jacks) and improving break / lunch time provision through training for Y5&6 play-leaders for leading lunchtime games.

 

Staff Continuing Professional Development

  • Through the employment of both First Steps Sports coaches, Goalsports coaches and the Remarkable Dance Teacher, our staff have developed, are developing and will continue to develop their personal knowledge and understanding of curriculum. By observing and working alongside these professionals, our staff develop, improve and broaden their skills base and bank of activities from which they can build their own sessions in future units of work.

 

Specialist sessions

  • Year 3 & 4 swimming sessions have again been funded by the sports funding. This has meant that swimming could be provided to nearly 80 children free of charge to parents.
  • Year 1 ‘Jumping Jacks’ club, run by First Steps Sports, has again been funded by the sports funding. This has meant that an extra-curricular club for Y1 could be run by external coaches and be provided free of charge to parents.
  • Year 5 & 6 dance club, originally set up and run by ReMarkable, has again been funded by the sports funding. This has meant that an extra-curricular club for a number of Y5/6 children could be run by an external coach and be provided free of charge to parents.

 

The Future

  • Following a recent redraft of the PE curriculum and long term plan for provision, this summer there will be a full evaluation across the staff of the current provision and audit the need for new resources, particularly looking at the possibility of purchasing planning and resources documents to support a curriculum which has changed massively over the last 10 years. We will also evaluate the effectiveness and appeal of employing coaching teams such as Goalsports and First Step Sports.

Playground Markings
  • Following a project run by the school council, an order was placed to lay a large number of markings on both the front and back playgrounds. Less than half of the cost of this project was paid for through the school sports funding. The placement of these markings on both the front and back playgrounds means that all children from Y1 through to Y6 have regular access to them over breaks and lunchtimes, and all children have access to them during curriculum time if desired (eg number squares in Maths, QWERTY keyboard in ICT and letter blocks in English)
The Future
  • In Autumn term 2015 the PE Long Term Plan will be revised and spending will be reviewed to ensure that both curriculum and extra-curricular provision meet the needs of the children at Nafferton Primary School.


PE & Sports Funding 2014/15

We have received an additional £9120 this academic year from the government to enhance our sports provision.
We have used this money in a number of ways.

Key Stage 1 after school club
We have carried on with a Key stage 1 sports club on Thursday evenings. As I am sure you are aware we run approximately 20 clubs a week, but most of these clubs are for Key Stage 2. Therefore, this club is especially for Key stage 1 and has a general multi skills approach. A Teaching Assistant stays for an extra ten minutes to get the children ready for the club and then a professional coach from First Steps Sports Limited runs the session.

To improve our already high skills base.
Whilst we have a teaching team that is already very competent at sport there is always more to learn and different ideas to try. So the year 2 and 3 teachers have been working with the First Steps Sports coach and their children.

To enhance our clubs.
Some of the money has been used to pay for entrance fees to competitions and to purchase equipment – more hockey kit for example where goalkeepers need specialist pads etc. We have also paid for a professional dance coach to work with the dance club on Monday nights.

To play in competitions with other schools.
We have continued to fund a Driffield Sports Cluster and this has been running a whole range of activities – football, cross country, biathlon, hockey etc. Some of the money has been used to pay for a coordinator for the cluster.

Transport
This is a major cost for our school, so we are using some of the money to subsidise transport, a coach to Driffield is at least £100 to take part in Sports Hall athletics, etc.

Basic cost.
We have had to purchase more equipment e.g. new small balls for KS1 multi sport.

More activities
We are again sending year 3 swimming (over £2000)

Releasing teachers
To attend matches, sports partnership meetings, support swimming, support adventuresome activities e.g. Robinwood and Cranedale.

Over and above
Our funding for sport this year exceeds that of sports funding.
