Sport Premium

Sport Premium funding, also known as Olympic Legacy funding, for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the government in March 2013. This new ‘ring-fenced’ funding – only to be spent on PE and sport – will go directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from specialist coaching and teacher training to dedicated sports programmes, Change4Life sport clubs and support for after-school or weekend competitions.

Here at St Luke’s, we will be receiving around £8,500, which in accordance with the guidance, we have channelled directly into  developing the provision of Sport and PE throughout the school. Below is a breakdown of how the funding has been spent during the 2015/16 academic year along with its impact on our children.

1. Staff Development

£6,200 is being spent on staff development with a specialist leader in Physical Education spending every Wednesday afternoon working in school. The specialist has worked alongside teachers to help them develop their skills through planning support, delivery of lessons and assessment. The support has been across the whole school ensuring that the skills of teachers and quality of PE lessons in school has been significantly developed.
Impact statement:

A successful year with 5 members of staff being supported. This support was in the format of a scheme of work being taught that the member of staff had identified. They were then asked to identify three key areas that they would like covering. I then identified with them how I was going to meet these needs. At the end of the unit both the member of staff and myself evaluated the unit and whether their requirements had been met. I am pleased to report that in 100% of the feedback sheets that staff felt that their needs had been met. Many staff reported that they now felt more confident about teaching the unit next time by themselves. They also reported that their subject knowledge had increased and many commented on how they now felt more able to use PE subject specific language. Again, many staff made comments about how it had been very beneficial to see how a whole unit of work could be covered and how the progression throughout the unit allowed for pupil progress. Using the iPads was a very beneficial tool that allowed pupils to observe their own and others’ performance. Across all year groups we began to look at how to identify strengths and areas for development within a performance. We also looked at how feedback needs to be given if it is to improve performance. Year 6 pupils were also asked to identify the national curriculum level they were working at and encouraged to look at what they needed to improve in order to progress to the next level.

2. Development of PE Coordinator

£1000 being spent on releasing the PE coordinator from teaching duties throughout the year in order to develop a wider network of competitive sports opportunities.

Impact Statement:

PE coordinator involved in local networking meetings throughout the year, enabling them to organise one inter-school competitive sports event per half term as well as enable training for Year 5 Sports Leaders.


3. Fund to support puppils attending sports activities

£1000 is being reserved to facilitate children attending sporting activities in school time, e.g. travel arrangements.  Also additional after-school sports clubs will be supported to bring hard-to-reach sports to the children at St Luke’s with minimal cost.

Impact Statement:

One inter-school competitive sports event organised per half term. The funding, which remains the same for 2015/16 will be used in the following ways:

  • Continuation of the specialist PE support for all teachers throughout school;
  • Continuation of Coordinator release time to facilitiate a further enhancement in the number of inte -school sporting events;
