South Green Junior

Sports Premium

Use and impact of Sports Premium Funding

In the 2018-2019 academic year we received £14,802.00, with £4000 committed for next year.

Our aim is to ensure that all children at South Green Juniors are given the best possible opportunity to access both high quality teaching as well as high quality resources.

We used our Sports Premium to improve the quality of PE and Sport provision in the following ways.

  1) The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school          improvement.

 2) Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

 3) Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

 4) The engagement in all pupils in regular physical activity.

 5) Increased participation in competitive sport.

Spending Chart

Below is a chart outlining how the sports premium money has been spent against these areas. Some of the money has been used for support/training of staff when teaching PE to increase their confidence and knowledge. Money has also been used to train play leaders and provide the outdoor areas that children play in with more activities, which allow all children to participate in regular physical activity. Furthermore, we have managed to diversify our clubs this year to allow more children to take part including a musical theatre club and a Change 4 Life club.

Total spending committed for next year



  • We aim to see an increase in children attending sports club at SGJS across all year groups. 

Last year there was an almost 20% increase in the amount of children attending sport (or active) clubs for at least a term. New clubs like Musical Theatre Club and the informal Change for Life Club catered for children less likely to get involved in traditional sports.

  • Children will take part in a wider variety of sports (even if only for a taster session) and more sports will be available at the school.

Cricket in years 3 and 5 and badminton in Year 6 was taught for the first time, providing  experiences for pupils to new sports. There has also been a taster session run by Essex County Cricket Club for three years groups. New equipment, such as frisbees and parachutes, with the support  of Play Leaders, has allowed children to play a variety of different games in the playground.

  • An increase in pupil premium children taking part in school sport clubs.

Approximately half of the children on the pupil premium register have taken part in a sports club this year for at least one term. This is an increase of approximately 10% on the previous academic year.

  • A higher profile for sporting achievements around the school.

The Year 5 and 6 Dodgeball team came first in Billericay and third in the whole School Sport Partnership.  The Year 5 and 6 Basketball came first in Billericay and School Sport Partnership and made it through to the Essex county Basketball final, where they came forth overall in Essex. These achievements are on the board in the reception area and shared in whole school assemblies. Sporting events are consistently written up and displayed in the newsletter. The PE noticeboard by the library has been updated and more sport teams were involved in photographs on photo day.

  •  PE being used to improve/motivate pupil in other subjects such as: creative writing; maths; PHSE; art and design and science.

Competitions during Sports Week and related to the School Soapbox racer have allowed pupils to make links to art and design through sport. Lesson observations, by the PE Lead have identified links in PE lessons to other subjects such as maths and science.

  •  Increased confidence of teachers in teaching all areas of PE.

Teachers have verbally spoken about being more confident about how to teach some of the skills in badminton and gymnastics. and this has been supported in  lesson observations by PE Lead.

  •  Teaching of PE to be consistently good or outstanding

Observations carried out by the PE Lead during the year have shown teaching of PE to be good or outstanding across a variety of PE areas. 

  •  Children will have access to competitive sports at a higher level (targeting to get at least 45% of pupils representing the school at sport this year).

This academic year 57% of the pupils have represented the school in a sporting activity. This is 6% higher than last year. Furthermore, 56% of the pupil premium register have represented the school in sporting events (an increase of over 10%) and 46% of the SEN register (an increase of over 10%).
