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 WILL THIS BE SPENT?
The grant will be used to fund the following:
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.
