Sports PE Premium

What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum until 2020 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.

    Sport Premium 2014/2015 £8230
    At Stepney Primary School we have match funded the government grant to ensure that our children have the best possible provision and outcomes in sport and healthy lifestyles. This is how we have spent the money in the previous year and the impact it has had on PE and school sport at Stepney Primary School:

Where the money was spent?

How the school benefitted

Employ a PE Teacher and Mentor (Mr Darwood) to support staff in the delivery of quality PE and school sport

- The school gained a Silver School Games kitemark award, recognising its commitment to participating in school sport across Hull
- Resources and expertise have continued to be shared, with TD gaining additional training which has filtered through to other teachers through guided, bespoke mentoring of other staff at the school
- 100% of observed teaching in PE is rated as ‘good’ or better
- Children each receive 2 hours of ‘good’ or better rated PE sessions per week
- The number of children attending sport/active clubs has increased over the course of the year: 38% of KS2 children in Autumn Term 1, 57% in Autumn 2, 63% in Spring 1, 69% in Spring 2, 73% in Summer 1.
- Children across the school have taken part in over 40 sporting fixtures and events throughout the year (an increase of 12% on last year)
- 100% of KS2 children participated in 2+ events this year
- Less active children were targeted to take part in a programme of inclusive sports at St Mary’s College. 15 children represented their school who normally would not have had the opportunity to
- TD organised for dance specialists, an FA coach and hockey and ice skating coaching for various year groups. All were arranged by TD at no charge to the school

Youth Sport Trust Membership

- Three members of staff were trained in delivering tennis, orienteering and netball more effectively
- One member of staff gained ‘inclusive PE’ training

Hull School Sports Network Membership (£0.75 per child, an increase of £0.25 per pupil from last year due to Hull City Council cutting funding to the Hull Sports Strategy)

- The school took part in 9 events run by the School Games Organisers, benefitting from high quality competitions and tournaments at no extra cost other than the initial £0.75 per pupil
- The netball team represented the school at the Humber School Games

Transport to and from fixtures and competitions

- Children were able to take part in sport that is further than walking distance. Although the local cluster is very successful in coordinating events between our three schools, Hull School Games events are usually at St Mary’s or further afield

How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development. The table below shows how we intend to spend the sports funding during 2015-2016.

Where will the money be spent?

What we hope to achieve

Employ a PE Teacher and Mentor (Mr Darwood) for one day a week to support staff in the delivery of quality PE and school sport, deliver high quality clubs and organise school sport both at ‘Level 1’ (intra-school) and ‘Level 2’ (inter-school)

- To continue to broaden the teachers’ skill of delivery across the PE curriculum (games, gymnastics, dance, athletics, outdoor & adventurous education)
- To continue to participate in a broad range of activities and sports within school, within our cluster and as part of the St Mary’s School Games partnership
- To develop clubs further, offering a broader range of sporting activities that lead to competitions as a cluster of three schools (Clifton, Pearson and Stepney)
- To see further improvement in results demonstrating the impact TD has had on the quality of performance over the last 2-3 years
- To use assessment information carefully to maximise opportunities for children to become ‘physically literate’ by the time they leave primary school. This will allow them to engage with the secondary sport offered to them as they leave Stepney and begin their secondary education
- To ensure that when TD’s role comes to an end, everything is in place to continue the work to ensure that PE remains a priority at Stepney
- To invite more free support from local teams into school

Youth Sport Trust Membership (£50)

- Access to CPD in PE that will offer transferable skills and approaches in other subject areas
- Provide opportunities to work towards nationally recognised PE awards
- Access to reduced cost resources
- Access to online resources

Hull School Sports Network Membership (£0.75 per child)

- Access to the Sainsbury’s School Games programme (several fixtures that may lead to national events and high quality competition)
- More affordable transport to ‘School Games’ events organised for all member schools in Hull

PE and school sport resources

- Balls, cones and basic equipment that needs replacing after two years of use
