PE and Sports Funding

PE and Sports Funding 

The government provides funding to improve provision of physical education(PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to all primary schools. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. The Government will continue investment in the Primary PE and Sport Premium, as announced in December 2015 through 'Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation'. The provision of this ring-fenced funding demonstrates the importance placed on PE and school sport by the Government.

      *To develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers

      *To make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years: 

      *to hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

      *to provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

      *to introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport

      *to support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday  clubs and Change4Life clubs

      *to run sport competitions

      *increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

      *to run sports activities with other schools

 

Impact of funding at SLS

  • Achieved the Sainsbury's Gold School Games Award in July 2017. This award recognises the high quality provision of active and competitive sports in school and in local competitions.
  • All children KS2 have represented the school in at least one competitive activity within the academic year 2016-17.
  • % of children in KS1 have represented the school at a Sports Partnership event.
  • All pupils in Reception to Year 6 have received reduced cost swimming lessons for one term. This has resulted in increased water confidence and achievement of distance badges.
  • The school has purchased good quality resources for the children to use in lessons and they have been involved in enrichment opportunities eg Cricket at Headingley, Harrogate Gymnasium.
  • All teaching staff receive no less than one term but in most cases three terms of team teaching alongside our sports coach.
  • The school has set up a system to track pupil participation in school sports (including after-school clubs) where we can demonstrate that we provide a wide range of sports and a 23% increase of less active participants getting involved.
  • SLS Gymnastics came 2nd in the North Yorkshire Gymnastics finals and were also finalists in the Netball Sports Partnership competition. 
  • SLS was awarded second place in the Small Schools' Grand Prix 2017 which is a league of 20 local small schools.

Sustainability

  • SLS will ensure that all staff have the opportunity to team teach with our Sports Coach. This increases teacher subject knowledge and confidence in teaching a range of different sports. Each term class teachers lead a session and receive feedback from the Coach.
  • Responsibility of PE given to a member of staff who ensures that all children in school are actively involved in all aspects of sport. This person also plans a calendar of events which involve children in Level 2 and 3 competitions.
  • A SSOC committee of children who are team captains responsible for leading and developing sports in school. This may involve coaching children, leading PE sessions and organising inter-house tournaments.
