PE Funding

Primary PE and Sports Premium




At NEWINGTON ACADEMY we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding until 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

What does the Sport Premium mean for our School?

"Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

At NEWINGTON ACADEMY we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration;

  • Physical Education - Raising the standard of teaching and learning in PE
  • Healthy Active Lifestyles - Ensuring all children are encouraged to take regular exercise
  • Competitive Sport - Increase participation levels in extra-curricular sport

We decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:

PE Funding

Impact:

Wider range of sports provision: Football, Tag Rugby, Rounders, Cricket (Kwik-Cricket), Swimming, Netball, Boxing, Gymnastic, Dance, Athletics, Circuit Training & Fitness, Hockey, Tennis.

Quality of provision: All teachers have received high quality training packages in order to improve their own understanding and delivery of PE sessions. CPD was arranged based on the results of the questionnaires that the teachers completed.

Extended time for Sports activities: Pupils are working to the recommended time of 120 minutes per week. However, additional timings are extended through the facilitation of quality sports provision at lunch times, break times and during extra-curricular clubs. Uptake in these clubs has been very positive.

Increased participation in Primary School Games competition: Due to our hard work in 2015/2016 we have been awarded with the ‘Primary School Games’ Silver awarded. This award shows the commitment we have in ensuring that all children take part in competitive sports. Year 5 ‘Sirius Sport Stars’ won the Volleyball competition.

Increased Participation in ‘intra –school’ competitions and activities: Freddy Fit ‘intra-school’ competitions were organised for Year 3 and above. All pupils took part in ‘Race for Life’ and Sports day over the Summer term.

Fitness levels increased dramatically: Pupils have taken part in rigorous circuit training routines and dance/music sessions. Fitness levels continued to be monitored using ‘FF Fitness Level Training’. Fitness levels improved throughout each term, this was evident in the fitness books and wall charts.

Enhanced range of resources: Money has been carefully invested in quality and sustainable resources to support the provision of sport at the school and during the extended school day (breakfast club, lunchtime and extra-curricular clubs)
