Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil Premium Money
In 2022 – 2023, the school received £19,370 in Sports Premium funding.
The School Sports Premium money has been used to cover salaries of staff who teach physical education across school.
This is to deliver a PE and School Sport programme in school which will include both curriculum provision and lunchtime and after school provision.
We have purchased two i-pads to support the development of assessment throughout the school and enable children to develop a greater understanding of assessing progress across school.
One of the features of our school is a swimming pool. Sports premium money enables us to employ a swimming coach to allow pupils from Nursery to Year 5 to swim weekly. (Most schools can only offer swimming to one year group).
2022 – 2023 Academic Year
Percentage of Year 6 children who can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres = 95%
Percentage of Year 6 children who can use a range of strokes effectively (e.g. front crawl, backstroke & breaststroke) = 90%
Percentage of Year 6 children who could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations = 100%
We have access to the West Lancashire School Sports Partnership and its website. This, and use of Lancashire PE planning, enables us to:
Compete at level 1 (Intra School) School Sport Competitions delivered by school sport specialists as part of their curriculum delivery (once the new Lancashire SOW is implemented in your school).
Compete at level 2 (Inter School) School Sport competitions for primary schools delivered by the School Sport Partnership.
Have opportunities to represent the Borough in level 3 competitions.
Have access to local festivals and competitions. Local competitions delivered on behalf of primary PE associations at secondary school and other community venues, supported by trained young leaders.
Develop playground leaders within school to support lunchtime activities on the playground.
- access to 4 gifted and talented days per academic year with links to external clubs.
- The development of an invite only gifted and talented PE cohort who will receive additional PE provision.
- access to 4 festivals of sport (for pupils who have low ability in PE) per academic year.
- access to Bikeability Level and 2 training.
- access to Sports Council training.
- access to school sport specialist plans and resources.
- Quick Sticks Hockey resources and training.
- PE Plus - Fundamental Movement Skills which are needs based for individuals.
- Mini Wheelers for Reception children (Developing skills for cycling).
- an orienteering course around the school grounds.
We used money to provide resources developed and provided for schools to develop specific sports and sport days.
PE is often the most popular subject on the curriculum as shown by pupil questionnaires. We hope that the children will continue their love of sport and exercise into adulthood.
Our pupils often go on to become young sports leaders at secondary school or even come back as School Sports Partnership coaches.
PE lessons across school taught by highly proficient staff many of whom have a specialism/interest in teaching PE.
Assessment for Learning in PE continues to improve.
The enhancement of playground markings done previously has ensured that the children have designated areas to support PE during lessons and at playtimes. Children are very active during playtimes.
The school achieved a gold Sainsbury’s School Mark in July 2023.
