PE and Sport Premium Grant

Physical Education in All Saints' CE Primary School

Children in All Saints' CE Primary School will enjoy a rich variety of experiences in Physical Education.  Opportunities will be provided which will enable them to plan, participate in and evaluate work appropriate to their age and their needs.  Gaining knowledge and understanding and developing a range of social skills are considered important aspects of Physical Education, as well as improving the physical skills, health and fitness of our children.
 
Additionally we will encourage everyone in our care to adopt a lifelong commitment to a healthy, active and enjoyable lifestyle.

PE AND SPORTS GRANT

 

Children at All Saints’ CE Primary School are fortunate to have an excellent PE curriculum and also access to many activities, which are above and beyond those offered by many primary schools. Through external funding, children have experienced for example: kayaking, sailing, caving and rock climbing, among other outdoor pursuits during between September 2014 and the present.

 

The children begin swimming lessons at school in Year 2 and each year conitnue to swim for 1 term in Years 2, 5 and 6 and 2 terms in Years 3 and 4.

 

We, as a school, are keen to fully utilise our 2017 /18 PE specific budget of £8,767 to enhance both the enjoyment and also skill levels of our pupils through sport. This is done two-fold, firstly through accessing Sports Coaches to work with children both in and outside curriculum time. This year for example, we have used: Dance, Multi-Skills, Cricket and Tennis coaches to develop pupil skills from Reception up to Year 6.  Staff training and participation in these sports ensures long-term viability and sustainability.  We also ring fence a proportion of our funding to be a part of our local School Sport Partnership, led centrally by Netherhall School and locally by Cockermouth School, who organise sporting events for both mass participation, for example, Cross-Country Races, Sports Hall Athletics, Orienteering and Rounders, across the two key stages, as well as competitive events and competitions for children selected as a result of showing high competence levels in a particular sport, for example: Netball, Rugby and Kwik-Cricket.

 

Out of school hours, school staff devote their time to leading Extra-Curricular clubs, dedicated to sport. We currently offer: Sports Club (KS1), Football (KS2), Multi-Skills (KS2) and Rock Challenge (Dance for KS2) with Cricket to follow in January  and after Easter i. Orienteering will also take place in Spring. On top of this, several staff members give up their own time at weekends and evenings to supervise sports teams taking part in competitions. Over 85% of children in KS2 and over 60% of children in KS1 partake in school-organised Extra-Curricular Activities at All Saints’ CE Primary School.

 

As a Kitemark School, we are obliged to organise an annual school Sports Day. In 2016, to tie in with the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, we gave children the opportunity to ‘feel like the Olympians’ and helc their Sports Day in the Copeland Athletics Stadium, in association with Chris Wright from Wright Sports Services.  In addition an Olympic style sports event was held locally in which all the primary schools in the Cockermouth Cluster will participate.  In other years, we organise our own sports day on the playing field.

 

We also as a school, fully utilise the Sainsbury’s Active Kids Vouchers to replenish stock from our PE stores and also enhance the children’s sporting experiences through using proper equipment designed specifically for the sport they are doing,for example, we purchased playground goals for football and also balls suitable for the yard environment as well as replenishing ‘Huff and Puff’ stores for lunchtime activities.

                                                                                                             £8,766

 

 

The grant has enabled us to develop teachers’ and pupils’ skills.  Specialist teachers have been employed for a variety of sports including multi-skills, cricket, dance and gym.  Pupils’ skills have been extended and this is something that we continue to build on.  On occasions specific children have been targeted to develop their skills and improve their fitness.  The PE and Sports money has enabled pupils to continue to participate in sports including after school tuition which has promoted enthusiasm in a variety of activities.

 

We have noticed that children’s skill have developed and fitness has improved as the participation in sports has increased throughout the school.

 

Children have been taught the importance of the participation in sport in creating a healthy lifestyle.
