Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
THE USE OF SPORTS PREMIUM AT BROADMEADOW JUNIOR SCHOOL 2017/2018
From September 2013, Ofsted assesses and reports on how effectively the new school sport funding is being used to improve PE and sport provision in schools. They believe that when young people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means they can’t fulfil their sporting potential, leading to a less healthy lifestyle. The funding is aimed at getting more people playing sport safely from a young age, to help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.
HOW MUCH IS THE SPORTS PREMIUM GRANT
Allocations are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 as recorded at the January Census as follows:
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
How is this being spent?
Sports premium money has been spent/allocated this year to build improvement in the following areas:
More opportunities for children to become involved in sport have been offered through lunchtime, after-school clubs and activities.
Extra sports equipment to be bought for lunch time play and games / PE lessons as necessary.
A Skills Challenge programme has been set during the spring term for children to become more active at lunchtimes. This programme is run by trained pupils.
More spare PE kits to be available in each classroom to ensure each child can participate in their weekly PE lessons.
Kristian Thomas (Olympic Gymnast) visited the school in January 2018 to act as a role model and inspire the children to take part in sport.
Extra swimming for Year 6 has been arranged to enable more children to meet the requirement of swimming at least 25m by the end of key stage 2 and therefore raise school success rates in sport.
Year 5 teachers have been working alongside specialised coaches for the teaching of cricket during the spring term.
The school is affiliated with the Kings Heath Boys School Sports Partnership who provide training and support to the PE co-ordinator and can provide CPD to other staff where necessary.
Children have been offered opportunities to experience gymnastics, football, boxercise, netball and change 4 life afterschool clubs.
The whole school participated in a Chinese New Year Dance session in February 2018.
Year 4 will participate in a National Youth Ballet workshop in the summer term. Years 3 and 4 will participate in a tennis sessions provided by coaches from Billesley Tennis Club in the summer term.
Membership to the Kings Heath Boys School Sports partnership has given opportunities for participation in sporting events with other local schools. Where necessary premium money will help to meet transport costs enabling more children to participate.
IMPACT OF SPORTS PREMIUM SPENDING 2016/17
Staff expertise in teaching PE and games has improved through training and support. Courses have been attended to develop knowledge of particular curriculum areas for individual staff. Staff have had the opportunity to work alongside external specialists in football and cricket.
Children in all year groups have had the opportunity to participate in a range of external competitions and tournaments, such as football, netball, cricket, rounders, tennis and gymnastics. We have been able to give a broader number of children access to sports clubs (free of charge) run by specialised coaches which has improved confidence and raised self-esteem. We have also run a programme of year group tournaments to encourage participation in sporting activity.
We have been able to offer more structured play at lunchtimes due to our partnership with Sports Plus and AVFC which has encouraged a far greater number of children to take part in organised sporting activities such as football, cricket and hockey.
