Sports Premium 2017/2018
In April 2013 the Government announced that it would be providing additional funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools.
This initiative has been devised to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport across primary schools. Ideally, this will in turn promote healthy lifestyle choices and give children the opportunities to reach the performance levels they are capable of.
For 2017/18 at Friskney All Saints Church of England Primary School we will be allocating the funding in the following ways:
To work with Allison Consultancy to provide three training days working alongside other local schools on agreed focus areas. In addition to have a further two bespoke training days on internally agreed areas - £2,300
Recognising the physical, social and safety importance of children being able to swim and to be aware of dangers in and around water, the school will support Year 1 children to swim during the Summer Term and for Years 2 -6 to swim throughout the year at The Embassy Pool where they have access to deep water - £1,000
To continue to have in school a qualified coach who will work alongside teachers in lessons in order that staff may increase their subject knowledge and confidence in different skills aspects of sports - £3,500
To access sports training days and competitions for all abilities in order that they may develop their skills, strategic thinking and enjoyment - £1,000
To purchase any equipment that is to replace older equipment or which adds to the sports already on offer - £800
Total Grant = £8,600
During 2016/17 the following happened as a result of our Sports Premium Funding:
A wide range of extra-curricular clubs were introduced with some aimed specifically at less active children and/or younger age groups.
Playground Buddies training took place enabling our older children to be lunchtime buddies with the younger children.
During the year all children in Year 6 represented the school at sporting events but the number representing the school at sporting events has increased year on year for children in Years 1 – 6.
More partnerships continue to be developed with local community sports clubs thus enabling children to continue their participation in a sport outside of school.
Whilst taking part and having fun is always the starting point for our entry into competitions, we always aim to be competitive when required and to play the games in the right sport demonstrating sportsmanship and recognising excellence in the performance of others. Once again we have continued to improve on the number of 1st and 2nd places in competitions and qualified again for both of the County Winter and Summer Games.
All of our initiatives began in September 2011 with the arrival of the previous Headteacher and firm foundations have been laid with the school being recognised, within the area, for its commitment to sporting participation and the quality of the involvement by the children.
