PE and Sports Funding

Sports Premium

The Government have allocated all Primary, Junior and Infant schools some “Sport Funding” to “improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision”.  With the funding, the Government have put in place some "accountability criteria" - things that Ofsted will use to measure how well we are doing in areas like: PE standards, the quality of teaching and learning in PE and sport clubs participation rates, breadth of provision, links with other schools and sporting organisations, as well as how successful we are in improving the competitive element of our provision.

At the Rosary Catholic Primary School, we received funding of £8,900 from the government to improve sports provision in our school.

In 2015-16, Mr Cox, our P.E. subject leader, used the funding to:

  • Implement a new scheme of work
  • Use outside coaches to improve teachers' confidence and skills in physical education.
  • Increase the number of inter-school sports competitions-extending the sports involved to include Judo, Archery and Gymnastics
  • Increase the opportunities for extra-curricular sports- Hockey, Judo, Rounders, Tag Rugby, Football, Cricket, Gymnastics, Archery.
  • Signpost children to local clubs-Judo and cricket in particular

 

The impact of the sports funding from the year 2015-16 was:

  • More children chose to participate in clubs and played for school teams. 92% of KS2 pupils took part in one or more clubs. KS1 participation increased to 72%, from 63% in 2014-15.
  • The number of level 2 competition victories increased, including winning the District Sports Competition in athletics for the first time and reaching the county finals of the Gymnastics Competition.
  • The award of a Bronze Sportsmark Award from the School games organization with work towards the Silver Sports Mark already underway.
  • An increased confidence amongst members of staff to deliver more challenging and engaging P.E. lessons

 

 In 2016-17, we will use our funding to:

Use outside coaches to improve new teachers' confidence and skills in physical education, particularly gymnastics.

Increase resources and kit available to children.

Develop the playground resources, building a new MUGA, clamber stack and creating new sports markings.
