Sport Premium 2017-18 

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the physical education, physical activity and sport that they offer their pupils. The premium must be spent on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy active lifestyles.

 

At Edith Neville, we have been improving the variety and quantity of sports based clubs in order to encourage more children to participate in physical activity before and after school. We have also been developing our break time activities so that more children enjoy this time in a positive and active way improving our children's fitness and enjoyment of sports.

 

Sport Premium Statement 2017-18

In 2017-18  academic year the school will receive a total of £17,640 to enhance PE provision and increase participation in physical activities.

 

The funds are used to provide 8 sports club per week with a maximum of 20 participants per session including multi sports, running club, fencing, gymnastics, football and ball skills. These clubs are offered before, during and after school maximising the number of children who can participate. Sports activities are offered through existing staff as well as specialist coaches to enable a more enriched programme offer, including access to sporting events and competition.

 

In addition, the funding will also be used to enhance outside play space, providing equipment and opportunities for children to play together and develop their skills and enthusiasm for physical activity. 

 

 

Impact

We are able to offer a wider variety of clubs, which encourage sporting activities both before and after the school day in both Key Stage 1 and 2. Pupils from the football club sessions will participate in local Camden leagues with both a girls and boys football team, and report back on their fixtures in assemblies to celebrate the importance of teamwork, collaboration and participation as well as successes.  These programmes will provide opportunities for children to develop key communication skills and provide increased opportunities for children to engage in team activities and undertake regular exercise. In addition, the funding enables the school to offer non-traditional sporting activities including fencing.  School staff will receive CPD on how to run effective sports classes to ensure the current offer is sustainable.   

 

The funding allows the school to provide a total of 8 clubs with 150 places offered by specialist sports coaches and school staff. Prior to the introduction of Sport funding the school offered only 3 sports clubs  with 50 places offered.  The funding will also enable the school to replenish current sports equipment including sports bibs, tennis rackets, a range of sports balls and football goals, as well as participate in local competitions and sporting events.  

 

The success of activities will be monitored and reviewed through regular classroom observations, review of pupil progress and regular discussion with parents, specialist agencies supporting individual children's physical development and other staff.
