Sports Premium

What Is The Sports Premium Grant?

In March 2013 the Government announced a major new funding initiative to support the delivery of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This cross-government funding is provided by the Department for Education, with contributions from the Department of Health and the Department of Culture, Media and Sport. 

The Sport Premium Grant is designed to support primary schools improve the quality of Physical Education (PE) they offer their pupils. The Government is spending over £450 million on funding over 3 academic years from 2013 to 2016. 

The PE and sport premium is paid directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced to spend on improving the quality of PE and sport provision for all their pupils. In 2013/14 all primary schools in England with 17 or more primary-aged pupils received a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.

The objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:

1. To improve the quality of PE and sports provision for all pupils.
2. To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils.
3. For schools to understand and value the benefit of high quality PE and sport.
4. To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport.

Our Aims And Objectives

Montgomery Primary Academy will receive around £10,685 per year during the 3 years. Our aim is to ensure that PE teaching at Montgomery Primary Academy is outstanding; that all of our children are involved in a range of sports activities within PE, extra-curricular clubs, competitions and external associations/clubs. Sport is a powerful tool for improving life skills such as behaviour, co-operation and gaining a sense of fair play. Our children also take great pride whenever they represent the school, and we wish to continue to develop this sense of identity and celebrate our pupils’ sporting achievements. We aim for all our pupils to become physically literate, equipping them with the Knowledge, Skills and motivation to lead a healthier lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. 

In order to achieve our aims we will:

Ensure that all our pupils have a minimum of 2 hours of high quality physical activity a week through PE lessons.
Provide a wide range of daily extra-curricular opportunities through breakfast clubs and lunchtimes with an Intra school sports competition.
Train and support class teachers regarding all aspects of PE.
Support and engage less active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs.
Run and enter range of sport competitions, increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games.
Purchase and maintain equipment to maximise the opportunity and progression of our students in PE and sport.
Offer the opportunity for all pupils to access a wide range of after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
Promote and support health and wellbeing to our pupils, engaging their families and the wider community. 
Strengthen our relationships with sporting organisations building club links as a gateway for pupils to continue participation beyond the schools            provision.
Partake in CPD to continuously develop our staff’s skills and knowledge ensuring we are delivering best practice.
Raise the profile of our sports through celebratory assemblies, blogging and social media activity.

How Have We Used The Sports Premium Grant?

Over the last two academic years, the Sports Premium Grant has enabled us to develop our sports provision in a number of ways. This is what we have achieved so far:

1. We have delivered CPD to all staff to help build their confidence with teaching PE and delivered team teach sessions with all NQT’s.
2. We have delivered training sessions to the lunchtime supervisors in order for them to learn and understand about playing games with pupils.
3. We have put into place a variety of clubs to help cater for the individual needs of our pupils. We have made links with the Change 4 Life                        programme to help educate families in our local community about sports and living a healthy lifestyle. The school has had a great interest in the 
        sports club on offer which is now running at maximum capacity and even have waiting lists.
4. We run an established intra school competition system during lunchtime in KS2 which is also very popular with the pupils.
5. Our pupils receive specialised coaching sessions preparing them for upcoming sports fixtures which have had a huge impact on our sporting                success.
6. We have improved our playgrounds by buying new, dynamic equipment engaging pupils in more active play.
7. We have increased the participation in inter school sport competitions by taking numerous teams to each sporting event maximising opportunities         for our pupils to take part.
8. We have trained a team of young leaders to deliver fun active games during lunchtimes.

What Have We Planned For 2016-17?

We are committed to ensuring that all our pupils have the opportunity to develop skills and fitness in both competitive and non-competitive sports as well as increase knowledge of health and wellbeing. To achieve this goal over the next two years, we will continue to:

Ensure that children have a minimum of 2 hours of high quality physical activity a week through PE lessons and extra-curricular opportunities.

1. Continue with the training and support to the class teachers in all aspects of PE.
2. Continue to support and engage less active children through C4L clubs offering more pupils more opportunities to be active with the addition of a         KS1 club and also delivering C4L clubs during breakfast and lunch time clubs.
3. Continue to run and enter a range of sporting competitions, increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games as well as identifying nurturing            and developing talent.
4. Purchase new and maintain current equipment to maximise the opportunity and progression of our students in PE and sport enabling us to offer a         wider range of sports with age appropriate specialist equipment.
5. Continue to offer all pupils the opportunity to access a wide range of after- school sports clubs with the addition of self-defence and dance classes
6. Promote and support health and wellbeing to our pupils and the wider community, creating a greater awareness of factors that undermine our                pupils’ health.
7. We aim to support parents with healthier lifestyles by implementing various strategies which include publishing documents on our website, offering         opportunities to participate in exercise during school hours, by beginning a healthy cooking club with the aid of the kitchen staff and by running            parent workshops to highlight how a healthier lifestyle can be achieved.
8. Continue to strengthen our relationships with sporting organisations such as local sports clubs and other schools.
9. Collaborate with our partnership school, Percy Shurmer Academy, to facilitate inter-competitive sports and provide extra opportunities for                        participation through holiday clubs.
