PE and Sports Grant

 

Sutton St James School has been issued with a substantial amount of money by the Government as part of the Sport Premium Initiative. This sum of money is ring-fenced and is to be spent by the school on ‘improving the quality of sport and PE’. Ofsted will be focusing on how effectively this premium is used towards the given objective and as a school we will be held to account as to how we have spent this money. Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teachers during PE lessons.
  • Support and involve the least active children by running after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • Provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers.
  • Run sport competitions or increase pupil participation in school games and with other schools.

At Sutton St James the Headteacher, staff and Governors have given careful consideration as to how this money should be spent and our rational for spending the money is:

  • To improve the quality of the sport and PE that we are already offering to the children ensuring all children benefit
  • Offer training opportunities to staff to improve teaching and learning and for CPD
  • Ensure the school is able to participate in local tournaments and festivals
  • Encourage more participation in a wider range of after school and lunchtime activities for all children including Pupil Premium children
  • Develop inter-school competitions
  • Ensure that staff have a better understanding of achievement in PE
  • Purchase additional resources to support all of the above

Sporting provision in the school

Within school our timetables offer all key stage 1 &2 children with at least 2 hours of PE each week, 1 indoor, 1 outdoor session.

All pupils have 2 hours of PE lessons in school, these cover the whole range of the subject – movement, fitness, gym, games, athletics and swimming.  After school clubs take place throughout the year, some with outside coaches. School takes part in local competitions and festivals. Coaches are used in school to deliver some PE sessions to all age groups.

Impact

We will evaluate the impact of the PE and Sports Premium funding as part of our normal Self Evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. The linked Governor will be involved in regular monitoring and assessment with the Headteacher. We will look at how well we use our Sports Premium to improve the quality and depth of PE provision including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance they are capable of.

Measuring the impact of the activities provided by the sports funding provided can be achieved in different ways.  We will look at assessments in PE as well as other areas of development including self-confidence, self-esteem and the number of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. We will also evaluate the impact of CPD opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
