Sports Premium

Impact of the PE Premium Sports grant

The Sports premium has been above the minimum requirement of the Core PE lessons to develop agility, physical co-ordination, fitness, confidence and enjoyment through PE lessons.  The school is able to use the playground and school field for its PE sessions and has access to swimming facilities in Key Stage 2 as described below.

The curriculum has been structured to include regular competitions within the cluster and beyond.  We have before and after-school sports clubs including netball, gymnastics and athletics for which there is not a charge.  This includes opportunities for all year groups.  The sports resources and equipment, including a trim trail, are maintained and replenished as appropriate.

Key Stage 2 children go swimming at Diss Leisure Centre during the Autumn and Spring term.  The current Year 6 children went swimming in Lower Key Stage 2.  They have been assessed to see if they meet the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.  79% of the children meet these requirements.

Children from Reception to Year 6 enjoy a Forest School afternoon every week, encouraging outdoor learning and physical exercise.  There is an opportunity to learn all about nature in-situ.

The school is in receipt of funding from the Government as part of a National Strategy.  The proposed way of spending this is in the document below.  This is a working document so will change throughout the year.

Based on the current allocation of £8,000 plus £5 per pupil: £8,440. Additionally the government has announced that the allocation will be doubled for the academic year.

This plan outlines the need of the school as finalised before the announcement was publicised and shows a slight surplus which should be planned for allocated after a baseline survey and review of the quality, effectiveness and variety of PE and Sport provision in the school has been undertaken based on the five key indicators:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

The review should encompass the vision for PE and Sport that: ‘ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport’.  The objective is: ‘To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools against 5 key indicators’.

Our use of the PE premium provided to schools 2015-16 was used in the following ways;

  • Employ a PE specialist to co-ordinate and lead the PE curriculum. This ensures all children receive high quality PE lessons and sports opportunities. Children in Reception have 1 PE session per week. Years 1 – 6 receive 2 sessions of PE per week. Weekly swimming is included within the curriculum for years 3 & 4 for the autumn and spring terms each year.
  • Deliver a broad and balanced curriculum. This is structured to include regular intra house events and competitions. Activities taught link with the South Norfolk school sports partnership calendar of events.
  • Provide a weekly afterschool sports club. There are no charges for this club. The activity offered changes each half term and over the course of the academic year will include opportunities for all year groups. A jigsaw partnership event based on the activity takes place each half term to provide progression and a competitive pathway.
  • Contribute to the employment of a sports co-ordinator within the cluster. This role involves organising regular inter school festivals / competitions. This creates a structured competitive programme forming the following pathway; intra school opportunities, inter school cluster events, South Norfolk school games, Norfolk County Finals.
  • All children are involved in competition at intra and inter school levels. All children represent their house regularly in intra school opportunities within PE lessons. All children attend at least 1 inter school event throughout the year, with many in key stage 2 attending at least 3 events. Since the introduction of the funding, teams/individuals have often progressed to the next level of competitions (South Norfolk games / County finals).
  • Sports days; We believe competition is healthy and where appropriate use the school house system for intra house competitions. Sports day is based on this system involving a rotation of activities and sprint races. A jigsaw partnership sports day involving all children from both Kenninghall Primary and Carleton Rode Primary has been in introduced with success.
  • Increase CPD opportunities for all staff. Teachers spend an amount of time observing/team teaching with the PE specialist to improve skills and knowledge. Courses provided by the schools sport partnerships are well attended by our staff. PE specialist leads specific inset to all staff at sets times during the year. Paid netball qualifications for parent volunteers to offer additional afterschool sports clubs.
  • Equipment. Replenish and replace sports resources and equipment.
