For 2017-18 we received a Sports Premium of approximately £16,000.

How we will spend this funding:

Increasing participation in school sport and setting up new after-school clubs

Keep a log of all of the pupils that take part in the different activities during and after-school. This ensures that we can monitor participation in extra-curricular school sports.   Listen to ‘Pupil Voice’ – provide school council with the opportunity to recommend sports that they want to see included.  A ‘House’ assembly could be planned to enable this.

Subject Audit

Staff to complete an audit for PE. Identify which areas of PE we are secure in and which we are not.  Put measures in place i.e. CPD, peer mentoring and use of EVSP.

Monitor and Observe Lessons

The PE co-ordinator to observe colleagues teach each term to ensure consistent high standards and clear development of skills across the range of sports in the curriculum. The PE co-ordinator to also work alongside teachers in planning high quality sessions. This ensures enhanced quality of teaching and learning. Each term the staff observe Sports Coach and Team teach to upskill PE knowledge and lesson delivery.

Quality Lunchtime Supervision of Games Activities

To reinstate ‘Playground Leaders’. The role encourages young people to take responsibility and develop leadership skills.  It helps to develop skills such as organisation, communication, confidence and self-esteem alongside planning and self-review.  It provides the opportunity for older children to work with younger children thus promoting integration and social inclusion. The involvement of the Playground Leaders reduces problems associated with bullying and inappropriate behaviour.  It also helps to encourage cooperation and helps to develop moral and social skills.

In the first instance, children within Year 5 will need to ‘apply’ for the post of Playground Leader following an assembly/discussion. Cross-curricular link with English would provide all children with the opportunity to apply.  After selection, PE Co-ordinator to work alongside lunch time supervisors (in particular Lisa Kingswood) and Playground Leaders to plan an overview of the activities to take place, organisation and roles.  If available, access external training for children and staff through EVSP.   However, if training is not available, the PE Co-ordinator will oversee the training.  This may also include opportunities for the Playground Leaders to develop their refereeing/umpiring skills in specific areas of sport.

It may be necessary to organise the outside area into zones. These zones will be determined by interest, space available and time of year.  More playground equipment will need to be purchased to enable this to happen.  Playground leaders could liaise with School Council and PE Co-ordinator regarding this.  Playground leaders to keep a log of those individuals participating in these organised physical activities.

Setting up Intra-School events

It is important to maximise the involvement that all of our children have in physical activity.   It is evident that most competitions that are on offer through the cluster and partnership events are offered to Key Stage 2 pupils.  Organising ‘Intra-School’ events helps to plug this gap.  It will allow us to monitor the percentage of those individuals engaged in physical activity throughout the school.

A huge emphasis will be placed on both children and staff embracing the ‘Spirit of the Games Values’ taken from the School Games. These have been developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around, and focus on personal excellence through competition

The six values are as follows:

  • Honesty – With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation
  • Teamwork – Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other’s success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life
  • Respect­­ – Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
  • Self-belief – You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
  • Passion – Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity
  • Determination – Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!

Increasing participation in school sports and setting up new after-school clubs

E.g. Basketball, Tag Rugby.  Look for new sporting opportunities i.e. lacrosse, archery, fencing.  Look for opportunities within our current organisation of Yanwath School’s Wrap around care.

Send a questionnaire home to parents asking them what regular physical activities their child/ren do on a weekly basis and what timescales. Ask for suggestions for extra-curricular clubs

PE Co-ordinator to keep a log of all of the pupils that take part in school and after-school. This ensures that we can monitor participation in extra-curricular school sports.  It also allows the school to determine whether there are any ‘target groups/cohorts’ to look closer at.

The school monitors both the physical development and engagement levels of pupils through: –

  • Teacher observation, assessment of PE and quality assurance measures.
