Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Sports Development Grant
You may have read about the additional government funding announced back in March 2013 of £150 million to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in Primary schools. The funding to cover the academic year 2017-2018 equated to a lump sum of £16,000 plus an additional allocation OF £10 per full time pupil. At Stokenchurch Primary our allocated budget is invested in our children’s PE. In response to this extra funding we have looked at ways of ensuring the money will both improve our provision in the short and long term.
Income for 2017-2018 is £16497 to provide the following:
Mr Williams our PE coach works alongside teaching staff with all children from Year 1 to Year 6 in one hour games lessons timetabled to run on Monday (Year 5 and Year 6), Thursday (Year 3 and Year 4) and Friday (Year 1 and Year 2) afternoons. The aim is to support not only the quality delivery of PE in those games lessons but equally help develop the skills of our staff which will continue to have an impact on other PE lessons currently timetabled and all PE in the future. The coach develops plans for these sessions using our PE curriculum map and sends plans to staff to discuss at their PPA sessions prior to the lessons themselves.
Mr Williams will also be adding to our provision at both playtimes and lunchtimes for Key Stage 1 and 2 setting up sports activities. At lunchtime he is timetabled to cover supporting lunch play from 12.00 to 1.30p.m. on three days a week (with Miss Goodall covering the other two days) providing a variety of structured sports activities for all age groups which he will personally run. So far we have seen much excitement as children have taken part in tennis, cricket, football among a wide selection of sports and skill development on the main playground run by Mr Williams.
From September 2017 he now supports all PPA sessions from for F2 to Y6 delivering the PE element in rotation with other staff providing French/German and ICT.
Mr Williams will also be working with children who have support plans that include developing gross motor skills in early morning sessions on Monday, Thursday and Friday.
Mr Williams also runs a wide range of sports clubs on four nights of the week for Years 1 to 6
Miss Goodall a member of our teaching staff leads gymnastic and dance lessons with Years 1 to Year 6 on two days a week as well as running before and after school gym clubs, supporting our highly successful participation at local and national gymnastic competitions.
We have invested funds into our PE resources adding last year a range of new playground equipment to stimulate children's play and chosen by pupils through our school council
The school continues to purchase PE kit for staff to wear when taking PE lessons to promote the value we attach to quality PE provision within the school and match the expectation we have on pupils on wearing appropriate clothing.
As of September 2017 we have joined the Holmer Green Sports Partnership at a cost of £2000 using Sport Premium funding in addition to providing all transport (a further £4600). The partnership will include 2 Sport Festivals for all pupils from F2 to Y6 and a partnership day with a day’s support from the partnership teacher.
