2016-2017 Sport Premium

Sport Premium Statement 2016-17

In 2016-17 the school received  £8860 to enhance PE provision and increase participation in physical activities.


We have used the funds as follows

Out of school hours sporting activities & competition/sports day: £8,344

  • Netball Club KS2 (AM) 
  • Gymnastics Club KS1 & 2 (AM)
  • Tennis Club KS1 & 2 (PM)
  • Circuit Training for KS1 & 2 (PM)
  • Multi sports Club KS1 & 2 (PM)
  • Football Club for KS2 Girls 
  • Football club for KS2 Boys 
  • Cricket Club for KS2 (PM) 
  • Running Club (AM)
  • Fencing Club (PM
  • Ball Skills Club (PM) 



We were able to offer a wide variety of clubs, which encourage sporting activity both before and after the school day. This year there were 10 different clubs reaching both KS1 and KS2 children. 

66% of children (105) in KS 1 and KS2 attended at least one sporting club before or after school this year. There were 279 places taken up between the 10 clubs, closely split between girls and boys. 


In some instances the sports clubs were provided by specialist external coaches enabling children to benefit from a full range of sporting experiences. The rotation of some sporting clubs throughout the year enabled children to experience different activities. 


Both football teams took part in local Camden leagues and have shared their experiences with other children through classroom and assembly discussions, celebrating successes and sharing team work experiences. 


The introduction of cricket to the timetable provided some children with a first time experience of the sport.  The continuation of the sports clubs and the rotation of activities enabled more children to experience different sporting activities in 2016-17 than 2015-16.  


Sports Equipment and Playground Friends: £516.00 

Improved provision at break and lunchtime for all pupils is a continued priority to increase opportunities for physical exercise, development of skills, reduce obesity and promote healthy lifestyles. Break times are a vital part of child's school day enabling them to let off steam and be active. 


In order to support the engagement and inclusion of all children, a refresher programme of playground friends was delivered for lunchtime supervisor staff. This session enabled staff and some Year 5 and 6 children to review strategies for encouraging positive physical play and develop new games for playground activities. 



Children's fitness and engagement has continued to increase from improvements in equipment available at playtime as well as increased opportunities for team work. The continued focus on physical activity has contributed to a more positive attitude towards participating in PE for children and parents, evidenced by the 66% of children participating in sports clubs. 


The school also took part in a range of all-school wide sporting activities including sports day, and sports relief which included a mile walk around school. In addition, the 'Wake Up, Shake Up' promotion provided opportunities for families to engage in a short exercise routine in the playground before school.
