Crofton Anne Dale Junior School
Sports Premium Report on Funding 2016 – 2017
Our school received £9837 in the academic year 2016 – 2017
As a school we decided to spend £9324.33 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 benefitting from.
All children have benefitted 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.
In the academic year 2017 – 2018 we will receive sports funding of £19830
We intend to once again engage sports coaches through the Fareham sports Partnership. The focus this year will be gymnastics and dance to raise the expectations within those areas, increase staff competence in delivering these areas whilst allowing them to apply the professional learning from the last year. A new PE leader will be in post and therefore will require some additional release time and opportunities to train and develop her role. We will use some of the funding to provide transport and access to a range of competitions.
