 The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Riverside School

The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Riverside School
2016/2017

Background:
For the past few years, the Government has provided substantial funding to primary schools in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We are held accountable for how we use the additional funding to support pupil progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Riverside.

Allocation:
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools receive £500 per pupil.

For the year April 2016 – March 2017 we received an amount of £9,653. This figure will in effect double from 1st September 2017, with the expectation for some additional accountability criteria.

How have we spent our Sports Premium funding to date:
We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all and encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils.

We have undertaken a detailed PE and School Sport audit and developed our Sports Premium plan to raise standards and participation levels in PE throughout the school. Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed, are that it must be used so that:

  • all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
    • the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments with other schools
    • staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
    • some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints
    • we make use of collaborative and partnership working

With the above rationale in mind, and following the guidelines for how to spend this money, our 2016-2017 spending history has been:

Impact measures:
We have evaluated the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school.

We have been awarded the Gold School Games Mark for academic year 2016-17.

This was achieved by focussing more closely on:

  • Promoting the School Games more regularly.
  • Having a greater number of our KS2 children involved in leading/managing School Games activities.
  • Competing in 6 all possible competitions at Level 2 of the School Games.
  • Having at least one C team compete at Level 2 of the School Games.

In the last academic year, we have competed in all available School Games competitions and have achieved notable success in the following:

  • Cross country – 9 children in North Yorkshire finals
  • 5 a side football – all teams undefeated
  • Sportshall Athletics – qualified for area finals
  • Swimming gala – cluster winners
  • High 5 Netball – Qualified for area finals
  • Key Steps Gymnastics – Y3/4 and Y5/6 North Yorkshire finalists
  • Rounders – all teams undefeated
  • Ainsty Sports (Athletics) - Winners

Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.

 

Plans for future spending:
Most of the above strands will need continued investment through 2017-2018 in order to maintain impact.

Due to increased funding and changes to the competition structure to include ‘Change For Life’ activities, we will be starting a ‘Change For Life’ club in which all children in Y4 will participate during the year. This will run over a lunchtime by a trained member of staff to be paid on an hourly rate.

In addition to this, from September 2017, we intend to invest in:

  • Investment in the professional development of staff at our school so they are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport for years to come. This will include providing cover to release staff for professional development in PE and sport.
  • Supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional sports clubs during the school day and after school.
  • Making links to other community sports providers – encouraging pupils to join out of school sports clubs.
  • Encouraging our children to improve their leadership skills through sport – through sports leader initiative, developing intra-school competitions.
  • Working on maintaining the Gold School Games Mark.

We will also reflect on our planned actions further, when the government release the revised Sports Premium Accountability Framework in October 2017
