PE & Sport Premium

For more photographs of sporting activities, have a look in the individual class folders in the PE section.

The Government is committed to improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools and allocates extra funding directly to schools.

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example:

  • By hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teachers during PE lessons.
  • To support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • To provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers.
  • To run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in school games.
  • To run sports activities with other schools.

 

Accountability

Schools are held accountable for the additional funding and are required to publish, on their websites, details of how they spent (or will spend) their PE and Sport Premium funding. They must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.

 

Primary PE and Sport Premium

At Boyne Hill, we believe our children should be aware of what is needed to keep them fit and healthy. We have worked with the local School Sports Partnership for many years and have made PE an integral part of our school curriculum. At Boyne Hill we have made important decisions on how best to spend this money to further enhance our children’s experiences and opportunities including learning about the importance of staying healthy and the social skills learnt by taking part in sport.

The report below sets out how we spent the money in the previous academic year and how we will make sure the improvements are sustainable. The Intentions statement below sets out how we intend to spend the money in the current academic year.

2020-21 intentions

  • For this next academic year, we expect to receive £17,000 through the PE and Sports Premium funding with £3869 carried over from last year.
  • We plan to sign up for the Core (Active) package from the School Sports Partnership at a cost of £1,270.
  • This will enable one class to prepare for the (possibly virtual) Dance Festival and one class to prepare for the (possible virtual) Wake-up Shake-up Festival during the summer term. This also provides both Year 1 classes with a block of 5 weeks of specialist dance tuition provided by the Partnership. These are excellent opportunities for the children to experience performing to an audience.

  • Through the core package, KS1 teachers will be able to access training in a range of different skills/sports: Active English, Active Maths.  We will continue to upskill the teaching and support staff within the Early Years Foundation Stage through access to age appropriate training, as and when it becomes available. We will ensure that new teaching staff are provided with training through attendance at available courses.
  • The children will be able to receive effective tuition in a variety of physical education activities which will increase their fitness and stamina and develop skills on which to build in the future.

  • We will fund the entire cost of swimming lessons for our Year 2 children (dependent on Covid restrictions). This amounts to approximately £3,800.
  • Learning to swim is an essential and potentially life-saving skill to learn from an early age so we value the opportunity to be able to provide this through the PE and Sports Premium funding, at no cost to our parents/carers.

  • We will pay for Premier Sports to deliver PE lessons to each KS1 class so that all children and teachers are able to access high quality coaching, delivering the fundamental skills needed by all children to develop in a healthy way and to enable them to succeed in later sports activities. This will cost £6,080.
  • Learning the basic skills whilst developing core strength is at the heart of all sports. Every child is included and they will all be able to build on the skills learned as they move through this and future schools. Teachers will improve their own skills through this coaching.

  • We will pay for each class to have one term of an after school sports club to further improve fundamental skills. This will cost £1,800.
  • We will pay for two selected pupils from each KS1 class to attend a free lunchtime Athletics club. This will cost £750.
  • The children will have the chance to enjoy a free club which boosts their fundamental skills and may encourage them to take up other sports.

  • We will include the cost of transport to sporting events such as both the Dance and Wake-up Shake-up festivals, if they are not virtual, at approximately £500.
  • Taking part in competition is very important for the children and helps build resilience.

  • We will pay for an athlete to visit the school to inspire the children to take up sport and stay healthy. Approximate cost £200.
  • Children will be inspired to try different sports and understand the need to keep trying to reach a goal.

  • Take part in National Fitness initiatives such as Walk to School Week, Bike Week, National Fitness Day. Approximate cost (for posters and stickers) £100.
  • Children will be able to understand the importance of keeping fit and healthy.
