High Achievement for All

PE and Sport Premium

Marks Gate Junior School - PE and Sports Premium 2017/18

 

At Marks Gate Junior School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement all our children.

The Government in England has provided additional funding of over £150 million per annum since 2013/14 to improve PE and school sport in primary schools. From September 2017, the funding has been increased to £320 million to enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of the PE and sport they offer.

 

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £320 million in academic year 2017/18. The funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on PE and school sport provision in schools. Ofsted will assess how primary schools spend their PE and sport premium; schools are required to publish information about their use of the premium on their website. Each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil each year – at Marks Gate Junior School that is £19,310 for the year. We received £9,615 in academic year 2016/17 and you can read here how we used our funding last year

Vision for the funding

All pupils leave the school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

 

Swimming Competency – Year 6 (as at 4th April 2018)

Number of pupils who can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres – 45 pupils

 

Number of pupils who can use a range of strokes effectively - 27 pupils

 

Number of pupils who can perform self-rescue in different water based situations – 24 pupils

 

A further group of 30 pupils are currently undertaking swimming lessons and the numbers of pupils who can use a range of strokes effectively and can perform self-rescue in different water based situations and we will update these figures at the end of the term. 

 

How Marks Gate Junior School is using the funding in Academic Year 2017-18:

 

We are seeking to use the funding to increase:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • the profile of PE and sport across the school and for it to be used as a tool for whole school improvement
  • confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • and develop a broader experience of the range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • participation in competitive sport

This shows how we intend to use the funding to improve the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of pupils.
