Primary PE and Sports Premium



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 2019-2020 is anticipated to b
£17,621 Further information about how we are using our PE and Sport Premium 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. 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, this year we have started working closely with SWFC, and we now purchase Sports Coach services from them, currently Mr Priest. We are looking forward to many more sporting events this year. 

Gold Mark Award


We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year. 

 

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012 facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of

competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

 

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including our Sports Leaders. We also give thanks to our Sports Coach who made our competitions possible.

 

To achieve the Gold Award the school has to offer pupils a wide range of sporting opportunities, from two hours of physical education each week to making sure that we fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs. We are very pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been recognised and rewarded this year. 

 

We will be applying once again in 2019/20!


Deepcar St John’s – 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.

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 Mr Priest, our schools current sports coach. The children selected to become a Sports Leader will attend training delivered by Mr Priest, 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 wanting to train to become a Sports Leader. 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 Mr Priest 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).

                                                                 

After/Before 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, Benchball, 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 and Gymnastics at our After School Clubs.  

During the Spring term, we offered football as a before school activity on a trial basis. Due to its popularity, we have continued with this for the Autumn Term.  The clubs start at 7.45am and runs for 1 hour on a Wednesday.

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.
