E 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.

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 activities for all children including FSM
  • Develop intra school competitions
  • Ensure that staff have a better understanding of achievement in PE

A sports coach was employed through Desire Sports to deliver both after school (KS1 and KS2) and lunch time sports clubs. Half way through the year this was increased from one club at lunch to two, one being for KS1 and one for KS2. Clubs included multisports, tennis, hockey, football, rounders and tag rugby. Lunchtime clubs were oversubscribed each term for both KS1 and KS2. After school clubs were also fully subscribed each term.

During the summer term an ice skating rink was hired and all children given the opportunity to try ice skating.

A position for Play Leader was advertised for this to happen but no applications were received. Next year this provision will be provided in a different way – responsibility shared between the MSAs and rotated throughout the year.

£500

£0

Develop provision of after school clubs for EYFS.

Although after school provision was not increased, lunchtime activities were increased through Desire Sports coach for KS1 and EYFS children. It was felt that this was more appropriate as EYFS children were tired by the end of the school day and hence it was felt that lunchtime clubs would be more effective for them.

£1000

£267

Develop provision of multicultural dance opportunities.

A Bollywood dance workshop was provided for every class in the school. The children worked on a performance which they then performed to the rest of the school at the end of the day. Parents were invited to this and encouraged to take part. Despite this opportunity being provided in this financial year issues with invoicing and payment means that payment was not processed and hence money will be carried forward and taken from the next financial year’s budget.

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 link 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 PD opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
