P.E. & Sport premium

Read how we have spent the P.E. and Sport premium grant, and the impact this has had on our pupils’ attainment:

All schools receive PE and sports funding to be used on improving their provision of Physical Education with the freedom to choose how they do this.

In 2015-16 we received £8,218

We carefully planned how to make the best use of this funding and appointed Jane Hawkes to be our Sports Co-ordinator.  Jane ensures that pupils have:

  • High quality PE lessons
  • Intra-school sports competitions at Level 1
  • Inter-school sports activities at Level 2 and 3
  • Access to Games for Life sports clubs
  • Sports Leadership opportunities for pupils in KS3
  • Rebound lessons
  • Inclusion work with local primary schools
  • Links with community clubs and sports coaching in school.

Impact:

  • Meeting speech and language therapy targets for positive opportunities to increase communication with others
  • Seeing language modelled by peers
  • Sharing in verbal and non-verbal communication strategies
  • Through this work the school was awarded a School Games Bronze Award in July 2015.
  • Sports Leadership skills develop confidence and self-esteem: lifelong transferable skills.
  • The profile of PE is enhanced through intra activity (within school) and inter activity (between schools) at level 1, 2 and 3. An element of competition is introduced to all pupils.
  • Community links with local clubs provides pathways to all sports. Coaching in schools provides high quality learning for a specific sport.
  • Inclusion with other schools helps to foster positive relationships that can be developed in all areas of the curriculum.
