Our PE and sport premium 'evidencing the impact' report is downloadable at the bottom of this page.
Schools receive additional funding in their budget for PE and sport provision. The report shows how we are using this funding to develop our practice and make sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered in our school.
The DfE has outlined five key indicators where schools should expect to see improvement if funding is well invested:
We employ a Teaching and Learning Assistant as a specialist, qualified sports professional, known as our Sports Coach. Part of the role involves planning sequences of lessons targeted at achieving curriculum endpoints. Lessons are inclusive and designed to engage all pupils, from those not normally inspired by sport through to the budding stars of the future.
Our aim is to lay the foundations for a lifelong journey of opportunities through sport. The Sports Coach role involves team teaching, building staff confidence and developing additional skills to help them teach outstanding PE lessons.
We use some of our funding on membership to the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership (AVSSP). This affiliation includes entry into AVSSP competitions such as athletics, football, netball, basketball and cricket; and gives children access to other opportunities including Bikeability and Mini Leader training.
Bikeability gives children the skills and confidence to control a bike safely. In Y6, it provides an opportunity for children to develop their skills in a real situation on the roads in our community, increasing road-safety awareness.
Developing older children into Mini Leaders has had a positive impact. Mini Leaders have responsibility for leading younger children in various sporting activities at lunchtimes. This gives our younger children more opportunities to engage with sport and physical activity, and also helps to develop older children's leadership and coaching skills.
