Sports Funding

The government is providing ring-fenced funding towards developing sport to all schools of £150,000,000. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Our funding comes directly to the school and is spent on improving the quality of PE and school sport for all our children.

As parents are aware, we have provided many varied opportunities for the children to receive major games coaching in recent years. We have also provided a range of after-school activities that are available due to the time generously given by staff and voluntary helpers also.

2016 – 2017 Spending

In 2016 / 17 the Sports Premium allocation of £8,000 plus £5 per pupil was spent in a variety of ways:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teachers when teaching PE
  • Supporting & engaging the least active children through new or additional ‘Change4life’ clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE & sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE & sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after-school sports clubs & or holiday clubs
  • Developing outdoor striking and fielding resources for learning
  • Developing outdoor fitness trails

2016 – 2017 Impact

In 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2017 All Saints was delighted to be awarded ‘The Sainsbury’s School Games Mark’ for recognition of our commitment to and development of competition, school sport and physical education.  The school achieved the mark at the highest level - GOLD.

The impact of the ‘Games Mark’ actions, coupled with improvements we made with the ‘Sports Premium Funding’, has been significant. Here are some specific examples of impact:

  • Our children are very positive about sport and physical activity.
  • We have a wide range of competitive sporting activities on offer.
  • Over 64% of our children engaged in PE extra-curricular activities or competitive sport last year.
  • Greater staff confidence in planning and delivery of PE lessons - teachers and teaching assistants.
  • All areas of the PE curriculum are at least good.
  • The proportion of outstanding teaching is increasing as a result of team teaching with expert coaches.
  • Increased links with specialist organisations and coaches
  • Pupils who are more able in sport are given the chance to participate against others of a similar ability and potential
  • Pupils will have high self-esteem and sense of pride for their teams.
  • 2017 summative assessments show that the vast majority of children in school achieve age related expectation with a significant proportion working a greater depth.

2017 – 2018 Spending

Our PE, Sports and Health Action plan shows how we will make further improvements to our sports offering, and the impact this will have on our children throughout 2017 / 2018.

The table below shows how our school is planning to spend the £9,050 allocation of sports funding in the 2017 / 18 school year.

Sustainability

The partnership with the WLSSP has enabled our school to create a sustainable curriculum for all the children by investing in the professional development of staff to deliver high quality PE lessons. The Lancashire Scheme of work provides a consistent approach to teaching PE across the school, resulting in the quality of children’s learning and development. Through assessments, club registers and School Games Mark Application we are able to collect valuable data.

Data collected from 2016 / 2017 shows us already the impact of the Sports Premium on pupil progress in PE and involvement in sport and clearly identifies strengths and areas for development.

93% of children achieved expected or above across the PE curriculum and 64% of KS2 children attended an extra curricular club.
