PE & Sport Premium Funding 2017-18

Evington Valley received £14,857 in PE & Sport Premium funding in the financial year 2017-18.

The funding was spent in the following ways:

Action/ Target

Impact

Enabling pupils to attend inter-school sports festivals and competitions (Paying into Leicester City School Sports Partnership, transport costs, providing teacher cover to release staff to take children to competitions).

The school has enabled pupils to participate in a range of competitions and events as spectators and participants including Change4life Wellbeing festivals, Saffron Lane Athletics, KS1 Sports Festival, Kwik Cricket tournament, SEND Parallel Athletics, Tag Rugby events and Netball tournament. To date, the percentage of eligible children who have taken part in at least one event is approximately 35%, with a number of children participating in more than one event. Further festivals and competitions are taking place during the Summer term and this percentage will increase. This will be further sustained in the next academic year and beyond through entering competitions on the SSPAN events calendar and Sports Premium funding will be used to support this.

Purchasing the swimming charter to support the teaching and assessment of swimming

Enabled staff to have control over the teaching and learning of swimming, targets for all pupils and the progress of all children. Assessment sheets clearly outline badge criteria and have supported staff to make clear judgements on children’s abilities. The charter includes badges, stickers and swimming passports which have been an incentive for all children.

Provide a Sports Apprentice

The Sports Apprentice has worked with teachers and children to support the teaching and learning of PE and provide extra–curricular clubs for children. This will sustain the development of PE across the school and build upon the number and range of clubs the school can provide for pupils.

Training Health and Wellbeing leaders

8 children from Year 5/6 attended the Playmaker training to become Health and Wellbeing leaders. They became the school games organising crews and supported pupils in making healthy life choices.

Purchasing new PE and sports equipment

New equipment has supported the teaching and learning for pupils.

Purchasing of Smooga playground fencing

This has provided a safe and clear learning area for children to play games in PE lessons, lunchtime playtimes and after-school clubs. It has also enabled better organisation of activities to take place.

Purchasing Balance Bikes and Scooters

FS Children have accessed a 6 week programme throughout the academic year to develop their skills and confidence on how to use balance bikes though to pedal bikes. FS staff received training on how to deliver the Balanceability programme.
Scooters also increased the number of physical activities available to the children and promoted healthy lifestyles.

Swim tests

In order to comply with the new swimming regulations, all staff who support the Year 3 children during their weekly swimming sessions were provided with training.

PE & Sport Premium Funding 2018-19

The PE & Sport Premium Funding for 2018-19 will be spent in the following ways:

* Provide a Sports Apprentice to work with teachers and children to support the teaching and learning of PE and provide extra – curricular clubs for children. This will sustain the development of PE across the school and build upon the number and range of clubs the school can provide for pupils.

* CPD for teachers / lunchtime staff to enable them to further develop teaching skills in order to provide a varied PE curriculum to pupils in lessons and at lunchtimes. This will increase pupil’s participation and enthusiasm for PE leading to a greater amount of participation in clubs and sporting activity as the children move through the school and into secondary school.

* Purchasing membership through Leicester City School Sport & Physical Activity Network (SSPAN). Through this we aim to sustain the development of PE including participation and enjoyment in different sports.

* Purchasing the swimming charter to support the teaching and assessment of swimming.

* To provide top-up swimming lessons in the summer term for the Year 6 children who are unable to swim 25m.

* To further increase the amount of pupils that attend inter-school sports festivals/ competitions. Through this enjoyment of PE and Sport will be further developed and provide pupils with positive experiences from which they will continue to participate as they grow.

* Continuing to update PE and sports equipment.

* To send a group of Year 5/6 on Cycling Proficiency training during the spring term

* To purchase additional balance bikes for the KS1 children and provide training for KS1 staff to deliver the Balanceability programme.
