Funding for Primary School PE and Sports

The aim of this funding is to improve the Physical Education (PE) and Sports programs offered by primary schools.

Although the funding is allocated to primary school Headteachers, it is to a great extent, ‘ring fenced’ – this means it can only be spent specifically on PE and sport in schools. You can read more about this under the action plans below. 

At St Margaret's CE Junior school, we aim to establish a sporting culture that enables and encourages all children to play and enjoy sport. We also provide opportunities for those who show particular talent and flair in order for them to excel.

 

Purpose of the funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, though how we do this, remains our decision.

 

We aim to use the funding to:

 

  • Provide a specialist, qualified PE sports coach who works alongside and supports all staff with planning and delivery of a high quality PE/Games/Sports curriculum.
  • Paying for professional partnership which provides development opportunities for our teachers in PE and sports.
  • Increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games (for example Mini Youth Games).
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • Purchasing new equipment and replacing existing equipment and apparatus.
  • To improve the provision of PE.
  • To broaden the sporting activities and experiences available to the children.
  • To provide extra curricular sports clubs.
  • To develop a love of sport and PE which will promote not only a sporting culture but also an understanding of healthy lifestyles.

 

Sport at St Margaret’s C of E Junior School

St Margaret’s C of E Junior School is fortunate to have a sports PE specialist, Mr McGurk, who takes each class for at least an hour a week. As well as this, he runs a number of extra-curricular clubs and makes strategic decisions on further specialist provision for Gifted and Talented pupils.

 

At St Margaret’s we tend to focus on one sport per term from Year 3 to Year 6. Sports will include netball, rugby, basketball, hockey, cricket, football and athletics. As well as skill and technique, an emphasis is also placed on enjoyment, fair play, and sporting behaviour.

 

As from this year, we will be taking Years 4 to 6 to Splashes Leisure Centre to undertake swimming lessons. They will have a group of 5 lessons and be instructed by two trained coaches. The vast majority of our pupils leave this school being able to swim at least the 25 metres (which is the expected standard).

 

The school also buys into the Howards Sports Partnership which provides opportunities for further coaching and training for our teaching staff as well as Play Leader training for our oldest pupils, leading to sustainability of higher quality sports provision as well.  This impacts on the quality of Physical Education children receive at St Margaret’s C of E Junior School and additional playtime activities to engage pupils during the lunch session.

 

We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our pupils.

Sustainability

 

  • The PE Subject leads and Senior Leadership will drive PE and Sport provision to ensure high quality sport and PE provision are embedded and sustained beyond 2019-2020
  • From 2019, pupils in Years 5 and 6 we will have access to greater competition opportunities via The Howard School Sports Partnership.
  • The proportion of core budget given to PE will be monitored in line with increasing pupil numbers.
  • Commitment from Splashes to enable us to use their facilities.
  • Sports kit and equipment costs to be reduced as we have the equipment required, funding will be redirected to replenishing and maintenance.
  • As established teachers, become more confident at teaching PE across the full age range and disciplines, more allocated time for team teaching for PE will be offered to less confident members of staff. 
  • Trained in-house play leader pupils will encourage sports participation at lunchtime.
