Sports Grant

East Stour Primary School Sports Premium

All primary schools receive funding for sports as part of the Government’s many initiatives.  The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Here at East Stour, the aim of the Sport Premium is to target three areas to ensure pupils have opportunities in curriculum PE, School Sport and Active Healthy Lifestyles.

Ways we have used the funding to enhance provision in the year 2015 - 2016

PE

·      High quality first teaching in PE continues to be the expectation of all teachers. 

·      Sports Leader programme – Year 6 sports leaders are taught/ design their own activities (with the support of specialist PE teachers) to deliver in PE lessons across the school. £100

·      Specialist coached from Kent Cricket Club worked with staff to develop their knowledge of teaching cricket.  Year 2 – Summer Term

·      Cyber Coach Smart Full School Licence - interactive dance and aerobics package that can be used during PE lessons and wet play to ensure children are still active during inclement weather. £300

School Sport

·      We have continued to use some of our funding to subsidise a swimming programme for year 6 pupils.  Pupils have a two week ‘crash course’ at the end of the summer term, where they attend daily lessons. £3,000

Impact on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment

The quality of PE teaching has improved through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists.  All pupils have a broader exposure to a range of sports, through PE lessons and after school clubs.  There has been increased participation levels in competitive sports and healthy activity of pupils.

How the improvements will be sustainable in the future

Development of staff skills and confidence through targeted CPD and appropriate use of resources, will enable staff to continue to develop and deliver high quality sports and PE.
