Sports Premium Report on Funding Impact 2014-2015 and Planned Spend 2015-2016
Our school received £9800 in the academic year 2014-2015.
As a school we decided to spend £8600 to Fareham School Sports Partnership in order to employ specialist PE teachers to work alongside staff two afternoons each week. The additional funding has been used to purchase PE equipment in order to facilitate the lessons to a high standard.
The impact from specialist teachers working with our staff has been increased subject knowledge for teachers alongside improved confidence and competence. Staff have been able to observe the specialist teachers teaching but also teach alongside them thus refining their own skills. Long and medium term plans have been modified to reflect this new competency which will improve future PE provision. Pupils have been very positive about this enhanced provision and the learning they are benefiting from.
All children have benefited from this provision but it has also allowed us to target any children who show a particular, talent, gift or passion for a particular sport. This has inspired and enthused the children and take up has been high. There has also been increased participation, and success, at inter school competition level. Children have taken part in national school games competitions in basketball, netball, bench ball, swimming, badminton and quad bikes.
An additional benefit from the Sports Partnership has been the provision of a wider variety of after school sports clubs throughout the year being led by qualified coaches. Clubs which have been made available have been - badminton, fitness, cross country, football and tennis. The clubs are an aspect of school life that the children are particularly proud of when asked about their school.
Due to the success of these actions we intend to carry them out again in the year 2015-2016.
The benefits to the school, its teachers and pupils are as follows -
