The Purpose of Premium Funding
The premium must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, encouraging all children to take part in physical activity provided by the school. We plan to engage children through a variety of methods, providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage children, carrying out these activities in break, lunch and after school.
Our Impact and Planned Impact
· Increase in availability of sport based after school clubs, increasing children’s levels of fitness and skill whilst simultaneously encouraging children to take part in sport which they might otherwise not have participated in.
· Clubs are presenting the opportunity for children to showcase their skills and participate in competition.
· Ballet in year 1 and 2 helps to develop skills such as agility, balance and coordination so that the fundamental skills are embedded at a young age.
· Football games at lunchtime have decreased behaviour incidents and allowed more children to access this sport. We have also introduced an invite club for girls’ football, which has had great success.
· Golden miles have improved fitness across the school, we placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the Island Cross Country event.
Swimming is a national curriculum requirement. The three requirements for swimming and water safety are that by the end of Key Stage 2 pupils should be taught to:
· Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters.
· Use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke.
· Perform a safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
· 75% of our 38 cohort are able to meet the national curriculum requirements.
