PE and Sports Funding at Langar C of E Primary School
- In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
- Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school received about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16.
- Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Sports Premium Funding 2018/19
We received £16,870 of funding for the academic year 2018/19, plus a carry forward of £7,498, giving a total of £24,368 for this academic year. The money was used for a variety of projects to develop our PE curriculum, building confidence and capacity in staff members to deliver quality sessions and to ensure that a lasting legacy was created through the purchasing of equipment and provision of a range of workshops and experiences.
The money was used for:
* Rushcliffe FA £70
By belonging to the RFA we have increased participation in competitive sport. Increased provision (two mixed football clubs) have allowed more children to take part. Of our current year 5/6 75% have either attended football club or taken part in a football match or festival.
*Weekly Dance Workshops £2640
The introduction of the Enrichment Afternoon has raised the profile of PE, Sport and physical activity. As part of this the children have benefitted from expert dance tuition - thus broadening their experience.
*KS1 Multi-Skills Club £750
The provision of a KS1 club ensures that children are provided with a good grounding in physical activity and instruction. This has increased engagement in sport and provides them with a taster for more specialist clubs and events that will be available to them in KS2.
* Rushcliffe Sports Partnership £730
Through the RSP, children from all year groups have taken part in a wide range of competitive sporting events and festivals. 54% of the whole school have taken part in a festival hosted by RSP, and 84% of year 5 and 6. This has also increased engagement in after school clubs which have been accessed by just over 30% of the school.
*Futsal Equipment £43
Quality sports equipment has allowed staff to offer a wider range of clubs with an emphasis on preparation for competitive events.
*Trim Trail £8831.20
Following the REAL PE training undertaken by our lead midday supervisor, an increase of physical activities have been organised at lunchtimes. These have also been helped by the provision of extra equipment purchased with money donated by the local council. We increased our outdoor time at lunchtime to 45 minutes to enable children quality time taking part in games, activities and getting active and mobile. Our Trimtrail has been a very popular addition will increase children's physical activity at playtime and lunchtime.
Transport to/from sporting events £185
Provides opportunity for children to broaden their experience of physical activity and sport outside of the usual setting.
Swimming course – apprentice £150
Provides the school with the ability to provide further support for swimming throughout the year, enabling the learners to continue to access and develop their ability and competence with swimming.
Yoga and Gymnastics £1720
The inclusion of yoga and gymnastics has targeted the development and improvement of concentration, behaviour, fitness and emotional well-being of the children.
Maze benching (part-payment with PTA) £2649.31
This has served as a reflection garden which has supported the development and promotion of healthy lifestyles, mind sets and all round improvement of well-being for those who use it. The inclusion of yoga alongside this has enabled the children to understand the impact of relaxation and mindfulness on the health and well-being of an individual.
Apprentice Fee - £5000
Through supporting the teaching of PE and sports lessons, holding sports clubs at lunchtimes and after school, as well as putting together intra school events, we have seen in increase in enthusiasm and pupil commitment towards sport and physical activity.
This has also enabled further support for children in the classroom, ensuring that individual children, as well as small groups, are provided with further support when required.
