Sports Premium Funding

We love sports at St Matthew's and enjoy taking part in a range of PE and Sports events.  We are now in receipt of 'Sports Premium' money....and here's how we spend it....

PPE & SPORTS PREMIUM GRANT 2018-2019

 

The terms & conditions of the grant state that schools have to publish information on their website and the amount of premium received:-

  • a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent)
  • what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
  • how the improvements will be sustainable in the future
  • how many pupils within their year 6 cohort can do each of the following:
    • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
    • use a range of strokes effectively
    • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations

The information on the advice of spending the PE funding including the 5 key indicators also remain unchanged.

 

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

For example, funding can be used to:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

 

For example, funding can be used to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
  • enter or run more sport competitions
  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • increase pupils’ participation in school games
  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
  • provide additional swimming provision targeted to pupils not able to meet the swimming requirements of the national curriculum
  • embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching

PE & SPORTS PREMIUM 2018-2019

For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, 30 pupils within our year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

 

For the 2018-2019, 27 out of 32 pupils within our year 6 cohort are on target to meet the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.  The 5 pupils not on target will receive extra tuition in the 2018-2019 academic year.  This will be at a cost of £16.oo per hour, total cost for 5 sessions estimated to be £320.00.
