The Government has given every Primary School funding to develop Physical Education and competitive sport.
The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective
"To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools."
Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium
"All pupils leaving primary school physical literate and with the knowledge,skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport."
It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:
1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
5. Increased participation
Implementing the Primary PE and Sport Premium at Old Bank Junior, Infant and Nursery School.
We are using our £17,400 (allocation 2017-2018) funding to bring in PE and sports specialist teachers and coaches to work alongside class teachers in lessons. In this way our children will gain new skills and experiences and teachers will learn new techniques and knowledge to aid them in teaching sport and PE.
At Old Bank JIN School we are using nearly £10,000 of this funding by working with the Pennine Sports Partnership to:
Increase the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate.
Make links to other community sports providers.
Develop additional clubs and activities for children, outside the curriculum including dance club, lunchtime football club, gymnastics club.
Encourage our children to improve their leadership skills through sport including involvement in the Play Leaders scheme run by Pennine Sports
Give extra support in PE to our most talented children and include those with special needs in sport through the Pennine Sports Gifted and Talented program.
The long term aim is higher quality lessons and improved learning for all children.
At Old Bank Junior, Infant and Nursery School we are using £7000 of the funding to employ the services of a Health Mentor from Evolve Education.
1) the physical health of the pupil
2) the emotional well-being of the pupil
3) the cognitive development of the pupil
4) the personal development of the pupil
5) employability skills
We will receive termly impact reports and an annual health and well-being review.
The impact of this funding at Old Bank Junior, Infant and Nursery School has been:
Increased take up of extra- curricular activities
Higher achievement in weekly PE lessons
Increased participation in competitive school sport
Improved personal health and well being
Positive attitudes and behaviour towards sport and learning
