Sports Premium

Sports Premium Funding

Our school currently recieves funding from the government to support the development of PE, sport and competition in school. This is £8,665 based on 133 eligible pupils. We believe sport and physical education is a crucial part of children’s learning, and that being active, as well as developing teamwork and sportsmanship are vital elements that contribute to the overall well-being of our pupils. We take a holistic approach, believing that all children should benefit from the Sports Premium funding, regardless of background or ability. We also believe that through effective collaboration and partnership working, we can promote and develop physical education and sport throughout our school and the community, to create an active community partnership.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do we spend our Sports Premium Funding?

  • We spend most of our funding on the investment in PE and Sports Development coordinator role to promote and develop PE and Sport in school, including identifying Whole School Priorities, working on a school action plan, progression mapping across the school, developing AfL across PE and identifying strengths and areas for development across staff subject knowledge/confidence.

  • Professional development for coordinator and other staff members to ensure staff are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport

  • Inviting external sports coaches into school to work alongside staff to model the delivery of high quality PE and Sport in specific sports areas

  • Membership of the Youth Sports Trust and the Association for Physical Education

  • Setting up and running additional extra-curricular clubs, including using community sports providers to bring expertise not currently held by school staff, and developing school-club links to encourage children to get involved in sports outside of school

  • Supporting and engaging the least active children by running a Change4Life Sports club, and using Pupil Voice forums to identify activities they would be keen to get involved in, either afterschool or during school day.

  • Increasing the number of competitive sports opportunities in which our children get involved in, especially with local schools, developing our local sports networks

  • Participating in Malling and Sevenoaks School Sports network competitions

  • Subsidising offsite swimming to aim to ensure all children leave the school as swimmers, confident in the water and able to enjoy swimming.

  • Developing intra-school competitions to promote competitive spirit

  • Inviting athletes into school to inspire the children

  • Purchasing equipment and resources to support PE curriculum and develop new sports and physical activities

  • Developing the use of positive play during break and lunchtimes, especially focusing on the development of the play leader ‘superhero’ role, to include resources and equipment.

We measure the impact of the sports premium funding through self evaluation and monitoring, particularly focusing on:

  • Evaluating participation in extra curricular sports provision

  • Evaluating impact on least active children helping to develop healthy lifestyles

  • Progress in PE and related areas e.g. self esteem, confidence etc

  • Number of children involved in sport outside of school
