Sports Premium at St John's

Primary PE and Sports Premium 

Primary PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. It was first provided in the
 2013/14 academic year and the current government has pledged to continue this funding until 2020. 


PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport.  It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.


The Government believes that headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:


  • The performance outcomes of all pupils compared with their peers
  • The Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular in those areas where specific funding has been provided
  • The reports that schools are required to publish online for Parents




All primary schools receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus £10 per pupil aged 5 or over on roll.  
Deepcar St John's School's allocation of Sports premium for 2020-2021 is anticipated to b
£17,500 Further information about how we are using our PE and Sport Premium and how it is calculated can be found in the Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE and Sports Premium document at the bottom of this page. 



Here at Deepcar St John's, we aim to use the funding effectively to ensure that standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, regardless of their background, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision. We believe that sport is integral to all children’s growth and feel that it plays a key part in their spiritual, moral and cultural development. 

At Deepcar St John’s, we believe it is important for children to take part in a range of both competitive and non-competitive sports. Through competition and

challenge, we want pupils to be able to celebrate the occasions when they are successful, whilst realising that team work and fair play has a key role to play in not only the sporting world but also their own lives. For this to be achieved, all children take part in 2 hours a week of PE lessons. As well as this, they are encouraged to take part in active sessions at lunch time through the use of imaginative play, Sports Leader lead games, school Intersport competitions or timetabled football days. (please see below for more details about Sports Leaders and Intramural competitions) After school sports clubs run every day led by our PE coach, where we encourage and support children to become involved.  As well as these opportunities, Deepcar St John’s take part in competitions, usually after school, against other schools in the local area. This allows the children the chance to put skills learnt during lessons or at our after-school clubs into practise and also gives them the opportunity to make links with other schools in the local area.

We have chosen to work alongside the School Sports Partnership called LINKs. This company do what their name suggests and provide links with other local schools for competitions, links with our feeder Secondary School and links with local sporting communities. For more information about LINKS please visit http://links-ssp.com/Additionally, we have started working closely with SWFC, and we now purchase Sports Coach services from them, currently Mr Priest. 

Sports Leaders 

(Due to Covid 19 restrictions, Sports Leaders are operating within the safety of their own bubbles.)


This year, all children across the school have the opportunity to become a Sports Leader. A role which brings great responsibility and enjoyment. It a a role that has developed over the last four years into one which allows children to become role models within the school as well as developing their basic coaching skills in a range of sports. 

Children who want to become a Sports Leader have to show good sporting ability but also skills in leadership, responsibility, time management, teamwork and organisation. They have to complete an application form and be interviewed by our sports coach. The children selected to become a Sports Leader will attended training, to develop their confidence and subject knowledge. 

Being a Sports Leader will give them the opportunity to work alongside our lunchtime support staff to deliver sports activity sessions at dinner time. Their role is to initiate games with children at St John's.They help set up the right equipment for each game, keep track of scores, help referee, help to sort out the teams and tidy away when the bell goes for end of lunch. Each Leader is allocated a number of lunch times per week in which they are responsible for organising physical activities of their choice. 

They help the Lunchtime Supervisors make dinner times fun and enjoyable. When children are actively engaged in activities behaviour improves and the playground is a fun and harmonious place to be. They have also had the opportunity to support with the running of after school clubs and also at sporting events. The aim is to provide all children at St John's with more opportunities to take part in physical activity and to develop fundamental skills that will help them in P.E and Sport. 


We have just found out that we have received the highly commended award in the ‘Outstanding School Sport Crew’ category at the Sheffield Schools Get Active Awards 2020It has been awarded for the hard work of our amazing ‘Sports Leaders' for helping children in school engage in sport and reach the government target of 60 minutes of moderate exercise each day.

Normally, we would recruit Sports Leaders from children in upper school to run out door activities at lunch and break times and also support at after school clubs and in PE lessons. Due to Covid 19, and children having to remain in their bubbles, this year we have opened this amazing opportunity up to children in lower school too. One of our newly appointed year 4 Sports Leaders devised his own game and delivered it as part of a warm up during their PE lesson today. Well done Harry - They all had a fabulous time playing your game.


After School Clubs 

The types of sports clubs we available change on a half-termly basis so that we offer a range of activities appealing to the different interests and ages of

children at our school.  We regularly offer Football, Basketball, Futsal, Kwik Cricket, Tag Rugby, Table Tennis, Cricket, Bench ball, Orienteering, Gymnastics, Tennis, Athletics, Badminton, Dance, Street Dance and Den Building. 

So far this year we have offered Football, Badminton, Basketball, Den Building, Fit Club, Dodgeball, Multisport, Hockey and Gymnastics at our After School Clubs.  

For a full list of our current clubs that we have on offer, please click on the following link; Deepcar St John's Before and After-school Clubs 


Hockey/Golf - Summer term 2



Tag Rugby is one of the clubs that we have available during summer term 1. This sport promotes bone and muscle strength and helps improve co-ordination skills and is great fun too. We still have a few places left on a Tuesday evening. If your child would like to join us, please contact the school office. 



From these photos it is clear to see that the children have been totally engrossed in building this amazing den. . The after school group of children have worked incredibly hard over the last few weeks and we are sure that you will agree that the den looks fantastic.

Intramural          

Developing an intramural program in school is a great way to get children participating in sport. It also creates a sense of belonging to the school environment, and connection with teachers and peers outside the classroom. 

At St John's we run the Diamond league, a Inter sport competition, which runs over the course of the school year, with one event being held each term.  There are two leagues, each consisting of three teams. A Y3/4 league and a Y5/6 league. Every class, in each league, plays each other at the termly events, playing two games over different days.  These events  run at dinner times giving everyone the chance to participate.  We didn't want children to miss out due to Covid 19 restrictions that are currently in place, we have therefore arranged events that each class can take part in within the safety of their own bubbles. After each event their scores will be recorded on a leader board to determine the overall winner.

South Yorkshire Games Week
A key motivator for children taking part in PE and Sports is having fun experiences and socialising with their friends. The School Games team have organised a week of activities with a focus on achieving their personal best and reconnecting with their peers. This week, each class will be taking part in a series of challenges during their PE lessons.

Pingpong - Year 3, 4 and 5
Year 3, 4 and 5 completed the Ping Pong challenge. These challenges set by John Peter from PingPong4U provide great physical and mental exercise in a fun way for children of all abilities. The first challenge was to try and bounce the ball on the bat as many times as they could. This then progressed to trying to repeatedly bounce a ball against a wall.
Looks like they had great fun.





Orienteering - Year 3 and 4
Today's challenge was Orienteering, which involved children from year 3 and 4. The sport encourages decision-making, builds map reading and navigational skills, which may prove useful in other areas of life. It's a great exercise for the brain as well as body. Initially, they had to learning map reading skills before setting off to find points marked on a map of the school grounds. They loved it!



Boxing - Year 5 and 6

We had loads of fun taking part in their boxing challenge. This was a non contact boxing lesson where their opponent was their shadow. A brilliant way for them to reconnect following lockdown.




Street Dance

For this challenge we joined Nicola, who is the Dance Development Officer from the Leeds Rhinos Foundation, in three different dance sequences.


Ultimate Frisbee

We completed the challenges set by Nathan, the captain of Sheffield Steal Ultimate Frisbee team, and had great fun.

Friday 15th January 2021 - Reflection Your mind is the part of you that experiences your emotions. It is where you experience the sensations, images, beliefs, memories, imaginations, and thoughts that make you happy, excited, sad, inspired, and fearful. The funny thing about your mind is that you can’t really find it. The mind is different from your brain. Your brain and chemicals in your body react to and shape your mind. Here is a super simple explanation of how your mind works: When you are happy, you have happy chemicals running through your body. And when you are sad, you have sad chemicals in your body that can create tension and even pain, like an upset stomach or headaches. When something happens to you, your brain creates chemicals that make you react and feel emotions like fear or excitement. Just like you have to take care of your body to stay healthy, you also have to take care of your mind.
Yoga and mindfulness are great ways that you can take time to increase your physical and mental well-being. Follow along with this video and you will learn some breathing and yoga techniques: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X655B4ISakg&feature=youtube. If you feel that you want to start a yoga diary to document your feelings each day, you can. You can take some time out each day to practise some breathing techniques, follow one of the sections or follow along with the whole video again. For some of you, writing down your reflections and feelings will help during this unusual time at home.


5th January

Year 3/4 learning their Stonehenge inspired dance

    

28th September 2020

During week commencing 28th September, and for the next few weeks, Morgan from Imoves will be coming to St John's to help deliver dance lessons using the Imoves program.
21st September 2020

This half term, we are teaching the children in year 3 and 4 rounders and cricket. In these lessons they will learn how to play the different roles of bowler, backstop, fielder and batter. They also acquire and develop a broader range of skills such as running, jumping, throwing and catching in isolation and in combination and improve their overall fitness and strength.

In all games activities, children have to think about how they use skills, strategies and tactics to outwit the opposition. In striking and fielding games, like cricket and rounders, players achieve this by striking a ball and trying to deceive or avoid fielders, so that they can run around bases to score runs. When fielding, they try to prevent runs or points being scored.

In today's lesson year 3/4 start to learn the basics of cricket. 

    

18th September 2020

This half term children in year 6 will be learning how to play hockey, which

 involves running, sprinting, changing direction and large amounts of strength, power and flexibility. Additionally, the movements involved in hockey develop gross motor skills, such as the ability to sprint down the pitch, as well as the fine motor skills that come from intricate stick work. Another important element playing a team game, like hockey is the social impact  Through playing as a team, children learn how to communicate with their teammates; they figure out trust and cooperation and they learn responsibility, as they take roles within the team.

Year 6 practising their hockey skills.

Summer PE Activities

Please find attached Linken's 42 Active Days of Summer programme for this summer holidays. They have been working with VAS and Sheffield City Council to put some activities which which can be accessed throughout the holidays by families. There is also a range of sports equipment that is being sent out alongside food hampers in targeted areas of Sheffield.


   


As a school we are well aware of the physical and mental health benefits of exercise and understand the importance of engaging in some form of regular physical activity. As the country learns to cope with the new coronavirus pandemic, business closures, social distancing, and changes in everyday schedules are disrupting just about every aspect of ordinary life — and exercise routines are no exception.

Although it might be tempting to skip your daily exercise during these challenging times, public health officials say that exercise is essential to your physical health and mental well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We recommend that you continue to be active but follow the Gov.uk and WHO advice to stay 2 metres 6(ft) from other people when you exercising outside your own home. 

To help support parents during this period we have put together a list of useful PE resources that can be assessed on line. You can find them on our website by clicking on the link below. https://sites.google.com/a/deepcar-st-johns.sheffield.sch.uk/website/pe

This weeks PE Task 


When it comes to sports with a high fun factor, gymnastics is right up there with the best and makes an excellent activity whilst we are not at school. You don’t need a team mate, rules or equipment to practice. You can start on your own with the basics of jumping, rolling and balancing.

Apart from being fun, gymnastics is a form of exercise that really takes it all: agility, flexibility, strength, balance, stamina and precision. And with so many different varieties, there's something for everyone.

 

Your PE task for the next fortnight is to improve your gymnastics skills. We want to see some of your before and after pictures and videos.

(Direct message Mrs Pearce on our school Facebook page ‘Deepcar St John’s C of E Junior School’ or email them to n.pearce@deepcar-st-johns.sheffield.sch.uk.)

Great to see children joining in Joe Wicks at home

        

26th March 

Children of key workers, who are in school, take part in a Joe Wicks PE lesson online and we encourage children to join in at home. 

  


23rd March 

Body coach Joe Wicks has announced he will be running daily live P.E lessons on YouTube in a bid to help out parents. He will be posting a workout  each day specifically designed for children. Just because schools are closed doesn't mean that there is no PE.





 PE Curriculum 2019 / 2020

Across the school, in PE lessons at the start of the year, children are completing the Bleep test. In the test, children run from one line to another before a timed bleep. As the test continues, the time between each bleep gets shorter. Once they can no longer beat the bleep, the test is over and the number of laps is recorded. The Bleep test is a way of gauging children's cardiovascular endurance, an important component of overall physical fitness.The results from this test and others are recorded at the start of each year so that we can monitor physical fitness levels of our children.

24th February

In PE, children across the school will be learning Dance. We are starting to follow a new programme from 'Imoves' Sheffield-based Imoves offers award winning teaching resources designed to get children more active, providing a variety of dance-focused lessons with video demonstrations for teachers to use. Today and for the rest of this half term, we are very privileged to have Morgan from Imoves at St John's. She will be supporting staff in implementing the 'Imoves Dance Programme'.


   

Weekly Mile


Simply put, The weekly Mile is 15 minutes where children ideally jog or run a mile during the school day. It's a simple and straightforward initiative that has been acknowledged for reducing childhood obesity. Over the coming months, we hope that most children will be able to run for most, or all of, the mile and that levels of fitness will be improved over the coming months. Here are some photos of year 5 in action.

    

Sports Leaders

Once children reach year 5 and 6, they have the opportunity to become a Sports Leader. A role which brings great responsibility and enjoyment. It a a role that has developed over the last three years into one which allows children to become role models within the school as well as developing their basic coaching skills in a range of sports. 

Children who want to become a Sports Leader have to show good sporting ability but also skills in leadership, responsibility, time management, team work, organisation and teamwork. They have to complete an application form and be interviewed by our sports coach. The children selected to become a Sports Leader have attended training, to develop their confidence and subject knowledge. The aim is to provide all children at St John's with more opportunities to take part in physical activity and to develop fundamental skills that will help them in P.E and Sport. 

This year we have had a fantastic number of children becoming Sports Leaders. A role that will give them the opportunity to work alongside our lunchtime support staff to deliver sports activity sessions at dinner time. Their role is to initiate games with children at St John's.They help set up the right equipment for each game, keep track of scores, help referee, help to sort out the teams and tidy away when the bell goes for end of lunch. Each Leader is allocated a number of lunch times per week in which they are responsible for organising physical activities of their choice. They have also had the opportunity to support with the running of after school clubs and also at sporting events. 

They help the Lunchtime Supervisors make dinner times fun and enjoyable. When children are actively engaged in activities behaviour improves and the playground is a fun and harmonious place to be.


    



Since the introduction of Sports Leaders, we have seen an increase in sports participation by almost 30%. By the end of Spring term 2, nearly 95% of the children in school are achieving 30 mins of moderate exercise at dinner times. (Percentages taken from questionnaires handed out in January 2019 to get a measurement of how much of the school participate and then from the star charts and when stickers are collected from the Sports Leaders).



Wednesday 11th March 


Some of our Sports Leaders have been in action today helping during a year 3 PE lesson, where they were teaching them athletics skills. They have been exceptional. Not only have they helped to organise the activities, they have supported and encouraged our year 3 children.

Well done Sports Leaders!


    

  

                                                                 




Intramural                

Developing an intramural program in school is a great way to get children participating in sport. It also creates a sense of belonging to the school environment, and connection with teachers and peers outside the classroom. 

At St John's we run the Diamond league, a Inter sport competition, which runs over the course of the school year, with one event being held each term.  There are two leagues, each consisting of three teams. A Y3/4 league and a Y5/6 league. Every class, in each league, plays each other at the termly events, playing two games over different days.  These events are ran at dinner times giving everyone the chance to participate.

Events 2019/2020 

28th November 2019 - Bib Tag Y5 and Y6 - to be rearranged due to bad weather 

Today, it was the two year 3 classes playing against year 4 in a game of Tag Rugby. All competitors had a fantastic time.

For the last few Thursdays we have been very lucky to have Matt Godden, a hockey coach, joining year 6 working with them during their PE lessons. Matt, who works at the Sheffield Hockey club, is trying to get more children interested in taking up the sport. They are running sessions during the half term holiday and the hockey teams train on a Sunday morning. Children from St John's have been invited to attend. If you child is interested in either attending the sessions during the holidays or would like to see about playing for the team, please visit their website below.
