Sport Premium Funding - How are we spending it?

What is the Sport Premium Grant?
Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools for the next three academic years (2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16). The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age in the school. The Sport Premium is to be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision and to increase participation in PE and Sport.

At Crowle Primary Academy, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils.
 
Funding 2014-15    
Funding Amount
Allocation £8,000.00

Funding 2013-14
   
Funding Amount

It is for schools to decide how the Sports Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess areas for improvement. Audits of Teacher skills and confidence and PE provision and resources are used as tools to ascertain the funding expenditure to improve sports provision and increase pupil participation in school sports.
 
Our PE and Sport Vision
All pupils and staff were involved in creating a Vision for PE and Sports for Crowle Primary Academy and this was shared with parents and governors.
 
At Crowle Primary Academy we like PE lessons that are fair, challenging and enjoyable. Through PE we like to learn a wide range of sports and skills so that we can perform well in games and competitions. We want PE to help us to get fit and to lead healthy lifestyles. Everyone should be able to take part in PE and have the chance to become a Sports Leader.

Overall impact of Sports Premium Funding
  • The profile of PE has increased meaning it has a high status within the academy.  The Academy's Vision for PE and Sport is displayed on the PE noticeboard in the entrance of the academy and provides information regarding Sports Premium and Sports Events and this is also reflected on the academy website and in the termly newsletter. Furthermore, PE is celebrated during whole academy assemblies and celebrations.
  • Teacher training has increased the confidence and skills of class teachers in delivering high quality PE lessons following a skills audit and an annual schedule of CPD designed to meet the specific needs of all teachers.
  • The curriculum has been enriched with more opportunities for pupils to participate in sporting events and PE provision and multi-sports clubs aim to fit with current sporting events within the cluster and the local authority.
  • The range, variety, quality and expertise of after-school sporting provision has increased e.g. Acro, Street Dance (aimed at boys), Multi sports and Taekwando.
  • Opportunities for 'vulnerable' groups and less confident individuals to participate in sporting activities are organised, which would otherwise be beyond their means e.g. projectability at the Axholme Academy in Summer Term and the purchase of boccia equipment (CPD organised in KS1 and KS2 and inter school cluster competition organised).
  • Through the development of intra and inter school competitions, providing all children with the opportunity to access experiences that they may otherwise be unable to. More children have had the honour and take pride in representing their school in competitions through B+ teams in sporting competitions and events such as the TATA Kids of Steel Triathlon where all Y5 and Y6 will take part and in Orienteering where the whole of Key Stage 2 took part.
  • Increased swimming opportunities in Key Stage 2 has resulted in 82% of Year 5 children achieving 25m+ award in swimming.
  • Opportunities to promote healthy lifestyles are woven into the curriculum, sports equipment being available at breaktimes and lunchtimes and activities such as Skip4life and individual class fitness challenges are improving the health and fitness of pupils.
  • The development of Year 6 Sports Ambassadors in the academy is having a positive impact on fitness and behaviour through their role in promoting sports, role-modelling good behaviour and leading lunchtime sports clubs.
  • There is evidence that as a result of improved PE and sports provision including at lunchtimes and breaktimes, the children at Crowle Primary Academy have greater concentration in lessons which impacts on attainment throughout the academy.
