Sports Grant 2015 2016



Use of the PE and Sports Grant September 2015 – August  2016


The school will have received a grant of £9747 during this academic year.


The school has spent the grant in the following ways:


Activity (As defined by DfE guidance)


Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport.


Run sport competitions.


The school participates in Sports festivals with a group of local schools. For those children who are less active there are ‘alternative’ sports such as curling. Planned sports competitions include: New Age Curling, Basketball, Cricket, Football, Netball and Rounders.







Contribution to Leader’s salary and pupil travel =


Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs and holiday clubs.


The school has begun a basketball club for children in Years 3,4,5 and 6 which runs every Thursday. This is additional to existing clubs.



The school also provides holiday clubs through its partnership ‘Futures’ based at the local secondary school. A great deal of this work is focused on ‘healthy lifestyles’.

Run sports activities with other schools

Every Wednesday afternoon, a qualified sports coach leads inter-school competitions with another local school (Reevy Hill Primary School)

Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively.

Every Monday a qualified sports coach works with staff and pupils on a rolling program to develop staff skills in delivering a range of sports activities: These include

  • catching and throwing skills for staff working with younger children and netball and benchball skills for staff working with older children.
  • bat and stick skills for staff working with younger children and hockey skills for staff working with older children.

Total Expenditure




What is the effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment?

Some inter-school sports have taken place but this has been disrupted this year by redundancy at the local secondary school. The secondary school has agreed to honour arrangements and provide this next year.


The uptake for out of school clubs is high. This is the case for children from Key Stage 2 in particular.

Basketball (Y3/4/5/6): 15 children

Football (Y4/5/6): 16 children

Zumba (Y1/2/3): 14 children

Gym / Dance: 24 children

Football (Y1/2/3): 19 children


Holiday clubs have been offered at the local secondary school but uptake has been disappointing. On average, 15 to 20 children attended from this school.

The Wednesday afternoon tournaments have taken place in the summer term for both football and basketball. These have been very successful and will be repeated next year.


Qualified sports coaches have trained school staff in the skills listed above across the year. Staff now report a greater depth of understanding the PE curriculum and how to teach specific skills. 100% responded very positively about the impact on children's skills and exercise levels. 75% reported very positively about their own learning. 88% reported very positively about their own job performance. There were no negative responses.


How will these improvements be sustainable?

With the continuation of the sports grant the school will continue with this programme. Sports clubs and holiday clubs will eventually be self-funding as and when the grant is reduced.
