Sports Premium Report

 

Primary Sports Premium 2016-2017

 

Name of School: Frieth C.E.C. School

 At Frieth CEC Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

We are currently awaiting confirmation from our sports providers as to how we can improve upon the provision provided in 2016-2017 before projecting our planned spending for 2017-2018. We want to see value for money rather than a further year’s similar PECS provision.   This discussion is due in May 2017.

 

Amount of grant received for 2016-2017: Sports Premium funding:  £8559

                                                                    Swimming and transport grant:  £1365

 

How has the grant been spent or will be spent?

1.

 

Coaching

 

£7660 (+ £200 for breakfast clubs)

This figures includes the costs of festivals and some breakfast clubs to support those festivals.

 

 

We have used the vast majority of the funding to employ a specialist coaching company who deliver 2 afternoons of multi skills sports teaching and CPD training for the Foundation, Keystage 1 and Keystage 2, both pupils and staff.  This is called PECS (PE Curriculum Support.  See the website link for more information: http://www.clubsportuk.com/schools/pe-curriculum-support/ ).  It is designed to help staff grow professionally and as individuals by taking part in a mentoring process.  The desired outcome is to deliver high quality PE lessons, increase knowledge of the PE curriculum, set targets and assess the pupils robustly in PE and ensure differentiated lessons to aid the pupils to fulfil their potential and make rapid progress in PE 

The coaches are employed from ClubSport – a local commercial sports coach provider.

We rate the quality of the coaching sessions delivered as good. We have used the vast majority of our funding to provide two afternoons of teaching, CPD and innovative lessons for the whole school each week.

This year has seen the additional benefit of CPD for all staff as identified in a questionnaire completed by all staff with regards to their CPD needs.  The sessions have been tailored to cater for the needs of the class in discussion with the teacher and coach.  The coach spends time both before and after the lesson discussing the lesson, assessment opportunities and areas to develop both the pupils and staff.  All sessions have a member of the teaching or teaching assistant staff present so that assessment takes place. 

We have the same specialist coaches providing two lunchtime ‘Positive Play’ sessions for our Year 5 pupils, which are teaching them games, rules and leadership skills to support the rest of the school during playtimes.  The two sessions gives the confidence boost in the early days so that we can avoid some of the issues that can arise with leadership skills. 

Additionally we have had some specific tennis coaching from a local tennis coach who ran workshops for each class across 2 mornings.  The coach has since reported that these sessions generated significant interest in taking up tennis outside of school using local clubs.

Competition

 

 

We have entered the Thames Valley Cross Country running festivals this year with some successes but lots of enthusiasm. 

We pay into a festival package as part of the PECS system organised by ClubSport.  We have taken part in two netball tournaments, a football tournament, and hosted a KS1 multiskills tournament (which we won)and a planned cricket and scatterball festival in the summer term of 2017. 

We have used some of the Sports premium to fund two lots of breakfast clubs to enable our netball team and our KS1 multiskills participants the extra coaching needed to flourish when taking part.

Year 5 and 6 pupils have participated in an interschool swimming gala in the Autumn term.

We ran a very successful inter-house football competition in the Autumn term enabling over 40 children to take part representing their house. 

 

Although not requiring funding directly, the overall increase in physical activity within the school as a result of the Sports Premium has highlighted the need for all children to access some form of competitive activity wherever possible.  Inter-house competitions provide us with a great place to start.  We are looking at competitions that all children can access across the academic year from football, cricket and netball

Health/Physical Activity

 

 

We have a number of clubs running in school:   cross country running, football, cricket, golf, street dance, gymnastics, multi-skills, Activkids, Positive Play Leaders and netball. We have also begun a new club called ‘Spykids’ which involves a variety of sports whilst working on challenges and missions. 

 

We have also run a successful judo trial club and this is now offered as a breakfast club on a Tuesday.

 

This year we have seen the running of 3 breakfast sports clubs which a something new this academic year to Frieth CEC School.

 

We are also putting resources into more inter-house competitions enabling all children to take part in some form of competition regardless of ability. 

We have introduced a wider range of Outdoor Adventurous activities with all of KS2 now taking part in orienteering for at least half a term each year.

 

4.

 

Shared or Single School PE Specialist Teachers

 

 

We are using the professional coaches from Clubsport for continued staff development.

We have responded to specific CPD needs via Rebecca Duggan, PE consultant.  Rebecca provided 6 weeks of support for three classes in gymnastics in the Autumn term.  Feedback from staff confirmed this was useful for everyone. 

5.

 

Professional Learning

 

 

Staff training will be sourced from the local authority and outside agencies in line with the needs of the school.

 

Staff have access to CPD opportunities through the specialist coaching team we have in school. Staff have provided impact statements and these show that they have been up skilled and are finding the team teaching approach a very useful tool. Clubsport have also been moderated by an outside provider as well as their own in house inspections.

 

Staff have commented that we now have a more enhanced and inclusive curriculum and that their own competence and confidence has improved. We are striving to enhance the quality of teaching and learning during our PE and sports lessons and have made significant changes this academic year 2016-2017 to improve this for all staff.

 Swimming and transport:  Spending is £1369.50 (paid for from swimming and transport grant)

There has been a positive impact on the whole school as increased participation leads to improved pupil behaviour and attendance in lessons.   The parents and carers are happier with the provision for sports through our extracurricular opportunities.

 

Last year we successfully gained the Sainsbury’s School Games Bronze mark which took quite a lot of work to evidence and then provide to the Outdoors Activities and School Game Organiser, based at SWBGS. The school is now working towards the Silver Mark and hopes to achieve this in September 2017. We have deliberately paid into a scheme, using sports premium funding, so that we can access a greater range of inter school festivals as we have found the previous provision provided via the school games system lacking.

 

We aim to use PE to support a cross curricular approach so that children learn through a range of teaching styles and methods.

 

Building upon the introduction of the Paralympic sport challenge last year, the children have continued to take part in the Sainsbury’s Paralympic sports challenge. The whole school approach towards inclusion in these events, the children have had the opportunity to experience a wide variety of Paralympic sports with resources provided by Sainsbury’s.

 

We have used the Sainsbury’s Activekids vouchers to purchase additional sporting resources.

We have completed the gross motor control area for outside learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage. This will give a wide range of outdoor learning opportunities to the EYFS.

We have changed our swimming provision having decided the previous provider did not offer value for money. The provision for our swimmers in years 4 and 5 is now of a higher standard as are the facilities and overall experience. The participants are assessed and if unable ti meet the criteria will be offered further swimming the following year. We are also looking to see whether we use sports premium funding to offer additional swimming lessons to those who, after two terms of provision, then need further booster lessons in 2017-2018.

 

 

What impact has there been on pupil participation and attainment leading to all pupils developing a healthy lifestyle? 

 We are already seeing a greater number of sporting opportunities within school and a greater number of pupils are now accessing these opportunities. 

Our more talented pupils have shown their abilities through our swimming competition, football competitions, multiskills festivals and during our cross country races. They have also been given opportunities during both lessons and extracurricular sports to further showcase their talents.  

The pupils have had a wide range of opportunities and there is clearly a rise in the participation of sport. The pupil’s enjoyment is shown through their positive attitudes and regular participation in our lessons and extracurricular sports.

The pupils demonstrate a good level of physical fitness and most understand the importance of this for their long-term health. We still need to make more efforts to promote a more holistic healthy lifestyle and this is an area for development.

We have seen data at the end of academic year 2015-2016 showing excellent attainment in PE. We will be looking at how to continue this by careful spending of future Sports premium spending.

The year 5 and 6 pupils, through the Positive Play Leaders course and House Captain roles, have acquired the skills to organise sports and physical activity for others.

The children have provided impact statements once they have participated in additional sporting activities and the overwhelming response is positive.

 

 

 

 

Primary Sports Premium 2015-2016

 At Frieth CEC Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

 

Amount of grant received for 2015-2016: £8565 plus a swimming grant of £1150

 

 

How has the grant been spent or will be spent?

Coaching

 

 

We have used some of the funding to employ two specialist coaching companies who deliver 3 afternoons of multi skills sports teaching Foundation, Keystage 1 and Keystage 2

The coaches are employed from the Activkids and ClubSport – commercial sports coach providers.

We rate the quality of the coaching sessions delivered as good. This year has proved more challenging with one provider not always providing plans on time or following them.  The result of this is that some changes are planned for 2016-2017 to ensure a more thorough coverage for all children.  When plans are provided they are used to check coverage, CPD and as an assessment tool.  All sessions have a member of the teaching or teaching assistant staff present so that assessment takes place. 

We have specialist coaches providing a lunchtime ‘Positive Play’ sessions for our Year 5 pupils, which are teaching them games, rules and leadership skills to support the rest of the school during playtimes.  This year the children have received one session per week but in 2016-2017, for at least the first term, the children in year 5 will receive 2 sessions.  This is to give confidence boost in the early days so that we can avoid some of the issues that have arisen this year with leadership skills. 

This year the grant was used to pay for a specific lunchtime club called Sportivate.   This club was run in the Autumn term for the talented sportspeople in years 4, 5 and 6.  In the spring term it was again for the talented sportspeople in year 2, 3 and 4.  The aim of this was to offer these children opportunities to use their talents in alternative sports to what they are used to.  In the Summer term Sportivate has been offered to children who would benefit from some additional confidence boost plus gross motor skill.  This club will continue in the Spring and Summer term of 2016-2017 once the children in year 5 have completed some of the Positive Play leaders.

Additionally we have had some specific tennis coaching from a local tennis coach who ran workshops for each class across 2 mornings.  The coach has since reported that these sessions generated significant interest in taking up tennis outside of school using local clubs.

Competition

 

 

We have entered the Thames Valley Cross Country running festivals this year with some successes.

Year 4, 5 and 6 participated in a very successful interschool basketball competition.  ClubSport provided some specific coaching in preparation.  Frieth won every match. 

Year 5 and 6 pupils have participated in an interschool swimming gala in the Spring term.

Year 2 were offered a golf morning at Hazlemere but there was not enough interest to make the trip viable. 

Unfortunately we can’t attend the annual Foxes Piece athletics event as it clashes with our Summer Queen celebrations.  Therefore we had planned to attend a summer sports festival as part of YST sports week, with other local schools, but this had to be postponed due to poor weather as was our sports day.  Both these are planned to be rebooked at some other time.

 

We ran a very successful inter-house football competition in the Autumn term enabling over 40 children to take part representing their house. 

 

Although not requiring funding directly, the overall increase in physical activity within the school as a result of the Sports Premium has highlighted the need for all children to access some form of competitive activity wherever possible.  Inter-house competitions provide us with a great place to start.  We are looking at competitions that all children can access across the academic year from football, cricket, netball

Health/Physical Activity

 

 

We have a number of clubs running in school:   cross country running, football, cricket, golf, street dance, multi-skills, Activkids, Positive Play Leaders, Sportivate and netball. We have also run a successful judo trial club and this is likely to be offered next academic year.  Some of which are subsidised or part subsidised with the sports funding.

 

We are also putting resources into more inter-house competitions enabling all children to take part in some form of competition regardless of ability. 

We are also looking at further clubs to offer in school.  The School Council have been given a questionnaire to discuss with their class about what more we can offer, as a school, to the children.  They have also been asked to consider the impact of the current provision for sports, physical education and health education.

The questionnaire will help us to plan for the summer term and new academic year.

Shared or Single School PE Specialist Teachers

 

 

We are using the professional coaches from ActivKids and Clubsport for continued staff development.

We have also carried over some of the CPD provision from last year and have been very fortunate to receive specific CPD opportunities via Rebecca Duggan, PE consultant.  Rebecca provided 6 weeks of support for three classes in athletics.  Feedback from staff confirmed this was useful for everyone.

Professional Learning

 

 

Staff training will be sourced from the local authority and outside agencies in line with the needs of the school.

 

We took out the LEAP membership for two years from 2014- 2016 and the Sports Coordinator attended a number of courses as part of that package.  We have used the LEAP membership to offer to all staff CDP opportunities via on-sight training.

 

Staff have access to CPD opportunities through the specialist coaching team we have in school. Staff have provided impact statements and these show that they have been up skilled and are finding the team teaching approach a very useful tool.  Staff have commented that we now have a more enhanced and inclusive curriculum and that their own competence and confidence has improved.  We are striving to enhance the quality of teaching and learning during our PE and sports lessons and are making significant changes in the next academic year 2016-2017 to further improve this for all staff.

We aim to use PE to support a cross curricular approach so that children learn through a range of teaching styles and methods. 

 

All the children have taken part in the Sainsbury’s Paralympic sports challenge.  All the children filled in a questionnaire prior to the start of the package showing a very limited knowledge of any Paralympic sports.  Following the whole school approach towards inclusion in these events, the children have had the opportunity to experience a wide variety of Paralympic sports with resources provided by Sainsbury’s.  The post package questionnaire showed a real positive impact on the children in their understanding of both the Paralympics and disability in general. 

 

We have completed an audit of PE resources in school. We plan to spend money on ensuring high quality age appropriate resources for the school with sufficient of each resource to fully enable high quality PE lessons. We have used the Sainsbury’s Activekids vouchers to purchase additional sporting resources. 

 We are planning to use some funding to resurface and resource the gross motor control area for outside learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We aim to complete this by summer 2014.

 

What impact has there been on pupil participation and attainment leading to all pupils developing a healthy lifestyle? 

 We are already seeing a greater number of sporting opportunities within school and a greater number of pupils are now accessing these opportunities.  We will be evaluating the attainment progress of pupils and analysing the groups of pupils taking part in the sporting opportunities in the summer term.

Our more talented pupils have shown their abilities through our swimming competition, football competitions and during our cross country races. They have also been given opportunities during both lessons and extracurricular sports to further showcase their talents.  

The pupils have had a wide range of opportunities and there is clearly a rise in the participation of sport.  The pupil’s enjoyment is shown through their positive attitudes and regular participation in our lessons and extracurricular sports. 

The pupils demonstrate a good level of physical fitness and most understand the importance of this for their long-term health.  We still need to make more efforts to promote a more holistic healthy lifestyle and this is an area for development.  As part of this we have also run a term of Healthy Active Lifestyle homework tasks as part of the children’s creative curriculum learning. 

The year 5 and 6 pupils, through the Positive Play Leaders course and House Captain roles, have acquired the skills to organise sports and physical activity for others. 

The children have provided impact statements once they have participated in additional sporting activities and the overwhelming response is positive.

 We are already seeing a greater number of sporting opportunities within school and a greater number of pupils are now accessing these opportunities.  We will be evaluating the attainment progress of pupils and analysing the groups of pupils taking part in the sporting opportunities in the summer term.

Pupils receiving Pupil premium have been able to access the afterschool club programme and this has paid for their place.  Our more talented pupils have shown their abilities through our swimming competition, football competitions and during our cross country races. They have also been given opportunities during both lessons and extracurricular sports to further showcase their talents.  

The pupils have had a wide range of opportunities and there is clearly a rise in the participation of sport.  The pupil’s enjoyment is shown through their positive attitudes and regular participation in our lessons and extracurricular sports.

The year 5 and 6 pupils, through the Positive Play Leaders course and House Captain roles, have acquired the skills to organise sports and physical activity for others. 

All children have been asked to comment on the sporting opportunities so far and here are a selection of their impact statements:

  • I now know how to use my voice to contact other people during games
  • I have learnt how to push pass and slap pass.  I know the difference between these.
  • I have learnt what adrenaline feels like
  • One of our coaches was very strict.  We had to concentrate really hard.
  • Before my swimming lessons I was worried about drowning.  I now know that I can save myself and maybe try to save someone else
  • We learnt that playing fairly means we don’t get sent off the pitch
  • I have started to play golf and I didn’t think I could do that.

Additionally the children have taken part in:

We had Henley College into school, in the Autumn term, to run a mini sports day with our year 4 and 5 pupils.  This was part of a liaison link which we intend to use again in the future as it was highly successful.

We have entered the Thames Valley Cross Country running festivals this year.

We have had an inter-school football match in the Autumn term and have cricket set up for the Summer term. 

We ran a very successful inter-house football competition in the Autumn term enabling over 40 children to take part representing their house and inter-house rounders matches in the summer term.  Although not requiring funding directly, the overall increase in physical activity within the school as a result of the Sports Premium has highlighted the need for all children to access some form of competitive activity wherever possible.  Inter-house competitions provide us with a great place to start.  We are looking at competitions that all children can access across the academic year from football, cricket, rounders, netball through to chess and creative writing. 

 

We are researching the Sainsburys School Games and Change4Life initiative to see how we can become more involved.

 

We have a number of clubs running in school:   cross country running, football, cricket, golf, street dance, multi-skills, Positive Play Leaders and netball.   Some of which are subsidised or part subsidised with the sports funding.

 

We are also putting resources into more inter-house competitions enabling all children to take part in some form of competition regardless of ability. 

We are also looking at further clubs to offer in school.  The School Council have been given a questionnaire to discuss with their class about what more we can offer, as a school, to the children.  They have also been asked to consider the impact of the current provision for sports, physical education and health education.

The questionnaire will help us to plan for the new academic year.
