Additional PE Expenditure

2018-19

 

At Christ Church CE 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 has enabled us to continue our provision through hiring specialist PE coaches to teach PE, and run clubs, paying for professional development opportunities in PE, providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE, buying quality assured professional development modules and resources for PE as well as providing places for some pupils on after school clubs and residential visits.

How is the Sports Premium funding allocated to schools?

Schools receive PE and sports premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In most cases, the DFE determine how many pupils in the school attract the funding using data from the school census.  Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil and schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8000 and an additional payment for £5 per pupil. This has been doubled to £16000 and £10 per pupil and shall remain this way for at least the next year.

Our vision for the role of sport at Christ Church Streatham CE Primary School

Physical Education is uniquely taught across the school by teachers, specialist coaches from Premier Sports and qualified swimming instructors at Brixton Leisure Centre. Through the use of qualified professionals, we provide a bespoke curriculum, so that when children leave they are able to have a vast knowledge regarding the rules of global sports, the importance of team work and how fitness affects the body. All of these elements have a direct impact not only for this specific subject, but also can be implemented elsewhere across numerous subjects, thus creating an impact across the wider local community upon departure from the school. We also desire that children find enjoyment in sports and display good sportsmanship when faced with challenges.

The £9000 sports funding money allocated to Christ Church has been used to increase the number of afterschool sports clubs offered to children, to subsidise our early morning start active clubs and to purchase additional equipment for children to access during these sessions and weekly PE sessions.

'Coach' has been the pivotal figure in helping the school to improve provision and we have seen an increase in the number of our learners participating in these clubs term on term. Ms Dunn our school ESCO attempts to ensure our clubs are full and keeps a detailed record of children who participate. For their part, Coach and Ms Dunn ensure that start active and stay active sessions are running smoothly and there have been observed improvements in behaviour since this scheme has been in operation. Increasing numbers of children are active and enjoying these sessions. Furthermore, there is an open dialogue between the coaches and the PE Coordinator as to what equipment is required to best benefit the learners.

Through our partnership with Premier Sports, the number of ‘Stay Active’ after school clubs happen three times per week from 3.30pm until 4.30pm. A wide variety of sessions aimed at specific age groups are organised, including multi skills, football, gymnastics for Year R and Y1, Y2 throughout the year as well as fencing, basketball, athletics, dance, touch rugby, football and drama for KS2. All the clubs are very popular and attendance has increased term on term.

Feedback from the learners is very positive:

Child Y3 “I really enjoy football club, because we get to do lots of running and learn skills!”

Child Y4 “I love PE lessons at this school because the coaches are really fun and energetic. I also like doing lessons with my teacher because.”

Child Y5 – “After school clubs are fun and I love all of the different sports you can try. The coaches and teachers make the clubs fun because they’re all so friendly and helpful.”

Child Y1- “I like the clubs with Coach. I do morning ones and after school ones, which I love. I am better at running and I can catch really well now.”

 

The school has, in conjunction with Premier Sports, also hosted a 'Start Active' club before school. This early morning club runs once a week with the aim of encouraging children to begin their day in an active manner. A wide range of games are played to encourage teamwork and individual performance. This club was offered from YR to Y6, with Pupil Premium being used to help fund places for targeted learners. Coach reports that children arrive on time and display a great deal of enthusiasm, with good behaviour and a high degree of engagement in the activities on display. It has also has been noted that the confidence of these children has grown and the enthusiasm for Start Active has remained consistently strong. Unfortunately, there were far fewer children in attendance this year, which may be attributed to the changing method of payment. When the PE coordinator has been to check on the club, it has always been noted that the children involved are laughing, smiling and thoroughly enjoying being active.

Coach also runs 2 additional clubs for children during the school day called ‘Keep Active’. These take place during one mid-morning break and lunchtime. Coach organises and plays football, basketball and other sports with the children during this period.

Premier Sports has also offered us the opportunity to organise holiday clubs for our learners and other children in our local area. Premier Sports match-fund the places subsidised by the school for pupil premium learners.

This year, the timetable permitted some opportunities for all members of staff to work alongside or observe coach during PE lessons to develop all aspects of their teaching and to improve learning outcomes. The improvement in PE teaching and learning as a result of these actions are demonstrated in positive observations carried out by the PE co-ordinator.

From the examples above, it is abundantly clear that the sports funding money allocated to Christ Church has not only had an extremely positive impact. It is equally important that the improved standard of lessons and clubs that it has facilitated are being maintained and developed year on year.

The enthusiasm and enjoyment of the pupils at Christ Church School is a testament to the passion and dedication of all staff, including the coaches from Premier Sports. Pupils leave Christ Church School equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits. For those who enjoy the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed at their chosen level and discipline.

 

Actions to follow:

  1. Continue to monitor the numbers of children accessing additional sports provision at Christ Church, including analysing the PP children uptake
  2. Continue to measure attendance patterns and achievement profiles (impact) for learners taking part in outside of school activities – start active and stay active sessions.
  3. Continue to CPD opportunities for all staff members (there are three new members of teaching staff this year). Teachers to teach alongside Coaches on a weekly basis.
  4. Continue to monitor KS1 and KS2 PE lessons lead by teachers to ensure teaching and learning in these lessons are consistently good or better.
  5. Continue to ensure all our leaners receive 2 hours of good or better PE sessions a week.
  6. Continue to update resources for both lessons and lunch time play.
