Sport Premium Funding (2018/2019) - £19,550

 

How we Spent the Money Last Year

  • subscribing to Kingsbury Sports College (support and training for new P.E. leader, participation in a range of inter-school competitions and support with the strategic direction of P.E.)
  • employing a sports coach (through ‘SportsPlus’) who organises outdoor games during the lunchtime break with Reception, KS1 and KS2 pupils; supports teachers with the delivery of Physical Education lessons in the afternoons (including swimming) and organises the delivery of after school sporting clubs
  • providing transport to allow a range of pupils to compete in inter-school competitions including athletics, multi-skills, football and netball
  • training Year 5 Playleaders, who are selected following a stringent application process, to support KS1 and Reception pupils during the lunchtime break (training obtained through the Kingsbury Sport Partnership)

 

Impact

  • the P.E. leader has received high quality leadership training to support her in the management and leadership of this area of the curriculum
  • Reception, KS1 and KS2 pupils engage in a wider range of structured sporting activities at lunchtimes because these are organised and led by the sports coach
  • teachers across the school are supported by the sports coach to deliver P.E. lessons, which encourages a higher level of engagement and activity, as a result of the more favourable teacher/pupil ratio
  • KS1 and KS2 pupils engage in a greater level of sporting activities because of the level of involvement in inter-school competitions (last year the school took part in 6 competitions against other schools)
  • Reception and KS1 pupils engage in a higher level of structured sporting activities during lunchtimes because of the leadership qualities of the Year 5 Playleaders
  • KS1 and KS2 pupils participate in a range of after school sporting activities because the school provides a wide range of clubs, including cricket, football (boys and girls), hockey, multi-skills and many more (this year 105 pupils have engaged regularly in after school sporting clubs – 29% of pupils)

 

How we intend to spend the money this year

 

  • from September 2018, we will be employing our own sports coach; they will organise outdoor games during the lunchtime break with a range of pupils, support teachers with the delivery of Physical Education lessons in the afternoons (including the modelling of effective swimming coaching) and lead the delivery of after school sporting clubs
  • provide transport to allow a range of pupils to compete in inter-school competitions including athletics, multi-skills, tennis, football, netball and many more
  • train Year 5 Playleaders, who are selected following a stringent application process, to support KS1 and Reception pupils during the lunchtime break (training has been obtained through the Kingsbury Sport Partnership)

 

Achievement in Swimming

  • 71% of pupils in Year 6 were able to swim 25m by the end of the academic year 2017/2018
  • parents of Year 4 pupils, who have not yet achieved their 25m swimming badge, have been informed of the importance of developing their child’s swimming confidence and competence for safety and health reasons

 

The school achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Award (Silver Level) in the Autumn Term 2014 in recognition of our efforts to encourage sport.
