Sports Premium

Use and impact of Sports Premium Funding

In the 2017-2018 academic year we received £14,543.00.

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

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.

The guidelines for the Sports Premium state that it should be spent across different areas to make a sustainable improvement to the quality of PE we offer. These areas are:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

Spending Chart

Below is a table outlining how the money has been spent relating to these five areas. So far £11,229.68 (77.2%) of the budget has been spent. Initiatives that relate to these five areas which did not cost any money have been included to show the full range of activities that have taken place. Some of the remaining money will be used for: PE coordinator training in the autumn term; sport taster days which have not taken place yet and to continue the PECs teacher mentoring into the Autumn term. Also, some money has been set aside to improve the outside play environment, including re-commissioning the long jump pit if any money is left over.

  • We aim to see an increase in children attending sports club at SGJS across all year groups. Two new sports clubs have started this year (since January). A Year 3 and 4 multi sports club, run by an outside provider, has been growing steadily. By the request of students, Mr Overill has been running a Year 5 and 6 tag rugby club. Also, a staff run netball club is being offered to students for the first time in a couple of years. These clubs have helped to improve club participation across the school. Over 50% of the pupils take part in a sporting club at the school, an increase of over 10% since the start of the year.
  • 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. One taster session for futsal has happened so far, which was well received. Mr Overill has contacted several companies to deliver taster days in the Autumn term including a fencing and archery experience.
  • An increase in pupil premium children taking part in school sport clubs. This has increased to 45% of pupils from 27% at the start of the year. This has mainly been through a wider offering of free staff run clubs for all year groups.
  • A higher profile for sporting achievements around the school. Sporting achievements are being written up in the newsletter and have been acknowledged in assemblies- this includes outside of school sporting achievements. Any certificates from the SSP events are given out in front of the whole school such as our year 6 cross country boys’ team coming 3rd in the SSP final. The school received the School Games bronze Mark
  • PE being used to improve/motivate pupil in other subjects such as: creative writing; maths; PHSE; art and design and science. PE has been raising standards in other subjects in different ways. A writing competition about resilience from ‘Premier League Primary Stars’ inspired a creative writing day for all students in the school. Furthermore, the soapbox racer has linked into art and design, with a competition to design the vehicle and an assembly by Mr Overill about aerodynamic design linked into the Science curriculum. Sports week linked into PHSCE by giving children a chance to apply what they have learnt about sportsmanship and coping with winning and losing. Furthermore, children a further opportunity to use their creative design schools to create a new South Green football kit.
  • Teachers being more confident in teaching less strong areas of PE. PECs have helped address this in Year 4 and Year 5. Monitoring of planning shown a better use of targeted annotations linked to progression and a clearer route towards mastery. This has been supported by PE Leader observations of lessons.
  • Teaching of PE to be consistently good or outstanding. Planning is improved with more thought to mastery and challenging children. Observations have shown the teaching of PE to mainly be good; teachers have been using the new resources to challenge pupils and deliver a higher standard of lesson. Healthy School focuses have been present in some planning and the observed lessons.
  • Children will have access to competitive sports at a higher level (targeting to get at least 33% of pupils representing the school at sport this year). So far 119 children (50%) have represented the school in sporting events. 45 % of pupil premium children have represented the school at a sporting event and 38% of the SEN register. This shows the inclusive approach we have towards competitive PE, which was mentioned in the Inclusion Quality Mark report earlier this year.
