The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Riverside School
2015/2016

 Background:
The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum to provide substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. 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 will receive an amount of £9,800.

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 2015-2016 spending history has been:

Aim Action Amount spent Impact
Continued membership of the Tadcaster Grammar School Sport Network Service level agreement with TGS £1292 This allows us to be part of a competitive sport network, linked through to the NYCC Youth Games.

Subsidising offsite activities in order to ensure pupils participate in activities in an environment which will stretch and challenge their abilities Various elements of transport provision – coach hire charges £1400 Most of our fixtures involve transport, often local, but at times as far as Catterick and Dalby Forest. This subsidy has been used to facilitate transport, without which, activities would not be viable.
Hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules

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 Silver School Games Mark the for academic year 2015-16

Criteria to achieve the Gold Award over the next year have been identified and they are:

  • To promote the School Games at least once a fortnight on the school website.
  • To have at least 15% of our KS2 children involved in leading/managing School Games activities.
  • To have competed in 6 or more competitions at Level 2 of the School Games.
  • To have 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 Level 2 competition
  • Basketball – cluster winners
  • Swimming gala – cluster winners
  • High 5 Netball – North Yorkshire finalists
  • 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.

How the school will ensure that any improvements are sustainable.

The improvements which we are seeing in school as a result of the Sport Premium funding are not only having an impact now, but are starting to grow into a sustainable model moving forwards.

  • CPD – Coaches coming into school have worked with staff in order to build skills and confidence in a range of areas. These staff are then more able to not only have impact with their own classes, but also to share their skills with colleagues across the school.
  • Involvement in competitions has allowed for a strong sporting culture to develop in the school. Across the school, children are becoming increasingly keen to improve their skills and represent Riverside in the wider community. These links with the competition format has also allowed us to develop strong and valuable links with our SGO, Stacey Howard, who offers us guidance and support with all aspects of our PE work.
  • Investment in Sports Leader training has enabled us to use our Leaders increasingly effectively and to engage and inspire younger pupils in physical activity, whilst at the same time providing succession planning by showing the next cohort the way forward with support from the PE lead.
  • Creating a TRL3 for PE leadership, whilst recognizing the work and time already contributed, has given the PE lead even greater focus and determination to maximize impact in the subject as a whole.
  • Primary PE Specialism Level 5 and 6. This qualification, achieved during this academic year by PE lead, will have long term impact in terms of quality PE teaching across the school. The skills acquired allow for better evaluation of how PE looks in our school and the strategies for how best to move it forward.

Plans for future spending:
Most of the above strands will need continued investment through 2016-2017 in order to maintain impact. In addition to this, from September 2016, we intend to invest in:
