PE AND SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING REPORT FOR 2015-16

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million, with the aim of improving the quality and breadth of Sport and Physical Education provision for all pupils. Through the school sport funding, all schools receive a lump sum of £8,000, plus a premium of £5 per pupil.

How much did we receive?

The amount of Sports Premium funding allocated to Alexander Hosea Primary School for April 2015-March 2016 was £8592, plus a carry forward of £5958 from 2014-2015.

The allocation for the academic year 2015-16 was £8,739

The total budgeted to spend in the academic year 2015-16 was £16,619 (due to amounts being carried forward for purchase of the outdoor gym equipment). Total expenditure was £14,680.

Intended outcomes

The impact of this funding is evaluated by the school and assessed by Ofsted in the following ways:

Achievement across the PE curriculum - Increased participation in competitive school sport;

Personal health and well-being among pupils - Improved learning behaviour within PE in school.

Increased participation in PE and Sports will ensure that all children have the opportunity to achieve highly and enjoy the advantages of a healthy lifestyle.

What have we spent the funding on?

Schools are free to determine how best to use this additional funding. At Alexander Hosea Primary School, we have a strong sporting tradition and have always prioritised PE and sports activities, including promoting healthy lifestyles. We are pleased that this additional funding has enabled us to further enhance our Sports and Physical Education provision in the following ways:

EMPLOYMENT OF SPECIALIST SPORTS COACHES - £3508

Qualified sports coaches undertook the training of Teaching Assistants at the same time as coaching the children in a range of different sports to ensure sustainable imporvement. They taught PE and Sports sessions with Y5 and Y6 children for 1 hour a week. The Teaching Assistants also delivered further staff training at regular staff meetings to increase confidence in PE teaching. Together this ensured that the provision is sustainable, therefore improving our already outstanding sports provision.

PROMOTION AND SUPPORT FOR REGULAR INTRA-SCHOOL AND INTER-SCHOOL COMPETITIONS IN A RANGE OF SPORTS.

We are keen for our pupils to have the opportunity to participate in tournaments and matches against children from other schools, both locally and further afield.

Last academic year, a group of our pupils trained with children from another local school (St Mary’s, Bradley Stoke) to form a team to play in a tournament hosted in Bristol. This was through the ‘Bristol Together’ programme, which promotes’ inclusion’ through pairing schools with contrasting contexts and cohorts.

TRAVEL COSTS - £303

The location of Alexander Hosea School means the children usually have to travel to other schools by coach. Our Sports Premium allowed us to subsidise travel costs.

TEAM COACH SUPPORT FOR MATCHES/TOURNAMENTS – PROGRESSIVE SPORTS – £25

It also enabled us to pay for the team coach to attend fixtures.

MEMBERSHIP OF THE SOUTH GLOUCESTERSHIRE SCHOOLS PE ASSOCIATION / KLB SCHOOL SPORT SUPPORT - £225

Our membership enabled the children to participate in a range of sporting events across the authority and with local schools during the year, such as the Youth Festival of Sport.

PURCHASE OF RESOURCES TO ENHANCE OUR SPORTS PROVISION - £411

Two netball posts were purchased to improve our provision and these were used during PE lessons and at netball club.

A set of hockey sticks, shin pads and footballs were also purchased.

OUTDOOR GYM - £9995

We also purchased and installed an outdoor gym for use by KS2 pupils during lessons and at play times and lunch times. This has greatly extended opportunities for exercise and improved the children’s level of fitness.

YEAR OF PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT, PE AND SPORT – READY, STEADY, GO! - £213

This is the focus for the academic year 2016-17, but we used £213 to pay for sports coaches to run our launch event – an Olympics sport’s day - at the end of the summer term, which coincided with the Rio Olympics. This gave all the children the opportunity to get involved in a number of sports and learn a whole school dance routine which was shared with parents at the end of the day.

A total of £14,680 Sports Premium funding was spent during the academic year 2015-16, including a carry forward for the outdoor gym equipment from the previous year.

IMPACT

EMPLOYMENT OF SPECIALIST SPORTS COACHES

High quality sports coaches ensured all children had access to a progressive skills based sport’s curriculum. This promoted pupil progress and resulted in high levels of attainment in PE and PSHE across the ability groups and a strong sporting tradition across the school.

The use of highly skilled sports coaches also provided all KS2 children with the opportunity to experience a range of different sports, including some more unusual sports, such as volley ball and Frisbee. This resulted in high levels of motivation and engagement.

The clear teaching of rules and how to work as a team supported individual pupil needs and the impact was evident in these children having more successful and calmer playtimes.

Sustainability was built in too, as one of our experienced Teaching Assistants was trained during coaching sessions so she now has the ability to use her skills with the children and also train other staff members, which she did during PE dedicated staff meetings. Again, this has had a positive impact on the quality of provision.

INTRA AND INTER-SCHOOL COMPETITIONS

Our sports coaches also had a positive impact through their organisation of a number of intra-school matches as part of PE lessons and also inter-school competitions. Teams of boys and girls attended football tournaments, multi-skills sessions and athletics events with other schools.

The impact of this was seen in their many sporting achievements, both individual and team.

  • Our boy’s football team reached the quarter finals of the South Gloucestershire league.
  • Our Y6 girl’s football team were overall winners in the local authority Festival of Youth Sport
  • 3 girls were selected to play in the South Gloucestershire girls’ football squad.
  • We had 40 children participating in the District Athletics Sports event and most of our children were placed first to fourth in almost all races.
  • We hosted a very successful local school’s rounder’s tournament on 4th July with our teams coming 2nd and 4th overall.

We have an extremely successful cross country team which runs at KLB School, again supporting transition. We always have several children finish in the top 20 competitors. However, last year, our cross country team performed extremely well and three of our children finished in the top 6 overall, taking 4th place in the Y6 girl’s race and 4th and 6th places in the Y6 boy’s races. As a result they participated in the Gloucestershire county championships in which our children were placed 11th, 12th and 13th. Whilst the 3 individual performances were excellent, their contribution to the overall team performances was significant and resulted in the Wotton and Dursley District boys’ team coming in 2nd overall and the girl’s team winning the County Championship. 

This success has impacted positively on their self-belief, as well as their physical development as distance runners.

Participating in more competitions and matches had a positive impact on team work, which strengthened one of our ELLI learning powers and reinforced our school ‘inclusion’ value. Our children are always supportive of their team members and encourage them to do their best. Positive comments are frequently received about their team spirit.

TRAVEL / SPORTS COACH COSTS

The use of Sports Premium to pay for travel costs and sports coaches to accompany the children   ensured the children were able to participate in away matches and competitions and the successes highlighted above demonstrate the positive impact this has had.

MEMBERSHIP OF THE SOUTH GLOUCESTERSHIRE SCHOOLS PE ASSOCIATION / KLB SCHOOL SPORTS EVENTS

These membership fees ensured that children, irrespective of their sporting abilities, were given the opportunity to compete at different levels in a range of sporting events. This provided opportunities which many children would not necessarily have benefited from, if selected purely on their ability. It also helped build self-belief and a positive attitude towards PE.

PURCHASE OF RESOURCES TO ENHANCE OUR SPORTS PROVISION

Hockey

At the end of Year 6, many of our children transfer to Katharine Lady Berkeley Secondary School, which has a strong tradition in hockey, having produced national hockey team members and Olympians! Our focus on the teaching of hockey skills and the purchase of new hockey sticks and shin pads last year has had a positive impact in preparing our children very well for their transition to secondary school.

The purchase of new footballs has impacted on the children’s football skills, as we now have more balls for skills practice, individually and in small groups.

The new netball posts have provided quality resources for use at the netball after school club. Children can train for participation in local netball competitions and we can now host these.

Outdoor gym

This was installed in April 2016 and is already proving a huge success with our KS2 children. Staff and children have all received relevant training. The equipment is used during play times and lunch times and is already extending opportunities for exercise, increasing the children’s levels of fitness and promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.

FUTURE PLANS

We are hoping to purchase a school branded sports kit for use by children playing in tournaments and matches against other schools.

We are considering the purchase of equipment to support our physical development curriculum and possibly the purchase of outdoor table tennis tables.

PE AND SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING REPORT FOR 2016-17

The Government continues to provide sport premium funding for schools based on the number of children in the school, with the aim of making additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

Through the school sport funding, all schools receive a lump sum of £8,000, plus a premium of £5 per pupil.

How much do we receive?

The pro rata allocation of Sports Premium funding received by Alexander Hosea Primary School so far for the academic year 2016 – 2017 (i.e. 1st Sept 16 to 31st Mar 17) is £5,205.

Intended outcomes

This funding will be used to:-

  • Develop and add to the PE and sports activities that our school already offers
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

How are we spending the funding?

Year of Physical development, PE and Sport – Ready, Steady, Go!

This year we are having a focus on physical development and sport as a tool to promote whole school improvement, develop healthy lifestyles and better meet personal, social and emotional needs.

We will be using our funding to:-

  • Introduce a range of new sports and activities with the aim of encouraging more children to take up physical exercise / sport
  • Support and involve the least active children by organising and participating in a range of different sporting events within school and against other schools, which cater for a range of sporting abilities

PAYMENT OF MEMBERSHIP FEES TO SPORTING ORGANISATIONS TO ENSURE CHILDREN CAN PARTICIPATE REGULARLY IN AS MANY INTER-SCHOOL COMPETITIONS AS POSSIBLE IN A WIDE RANGE OF SPORTS

We have ensured that the children will be involved in competitions and tournaments run by a wider range of providers this year. This includes:

South Gloucestershire Sports Association

Katharine Lady Berkeley School

Thornbury Cluster schools

Bristol Together

TRAVEL COSTS

Travel costs to get the children to and from events will be funded through the sports premium.

TEAM COACH SUPPORT FOR MATCHES/TOURNAMENTS

We are paying our Teaching Assistants and Sports Coaches to accompany children to the various sporting events this year.

PURCHASE OF RESOURCES TO ENHANCE OUR SPORTS PROVISION

Branded school sports kit - £500

We are purchasing some new sports kit so our children have a greater sense of school identity and pride in representing the school at sporting events. This is something parents have requested through the Parent Council.

Funding of the Life Bus - £700

IMPROVEMENTS TO THE OUTDOOR LEARNING ENVIRONMENT TO ENHANCE PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT SKILLS

We are planning how we can improve the early years and KS1 outdoor learning environment to address the physical development needs, which we have identified that a growing number of our children have on starting the school.

Table tennis tables

We are considering purchasing two outdoor table tennis tables which can be used by children to promote greater physical fitness during break and lunch times. These will supplement our outdoor gym, also purchased though Sport Premium funding.

What is the impact of the sport premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment?

The desired impact will be:-

  • more physical development and sporting opportunities being offered and taken up
  • increased participation in sport across the school
  • improved physical development skills from YR, which will impact positively on children’s fine and gross motor skills as well as their writing across the school

How are we making these improvements sustainable?

We are building in sustainability through:-

  • the purchase of resources which will support children’s physical development needs now and in the future
  • building capacity through use of Teaching Assistants to support inter and intra-school competitions
  • ensuring the children have an excellent understanding about how to keep themselves fit and healthy now and in the future
