Pupil Premium Strategy 2018-2019
Primary PE and School Sports Funding
What the PE and Sports Funding Grant is:
Since 2013 the government has provided £150 million of funding for primary schools across the country to spend on Physical Education and sport (this is known as a sport premium) and is calculated according to the number of pupils in years 1-6. This funding has been extended and increased for the year 2017-18. The purpose of the funding is to support schools to develop and improve the sport being offered across the curriculum and to aid all pupils to cultivate healthy lifestyles.
This means that St Martin’s Garden Primary School received an extra £17,890 to invest in the development of sports and to support the healthy lifestyles of our pupils for the year 2017-18 and will receive a similar amount in 2018-19.
How the grant is used:
St Martin’s Garden Primary School is committed to ensuring that the primary PE and Sports Premium funding is allocated to high quality, sustainable initiatives in the following areas:
Impact of the grant:
As with all areas of the school, the impact of our spending is closely monitored. The sports funding at St Martin’s Garden Primary School has:
Impact of funding on pupils’ participation and attainment
The year on year continued up-skilling of teachers has had a positive impact on the quality of lessons being taught. The professional coaches are well positioned to stretch the more able children and cater for those less able or with needs that prevent them from being able to achieve to the same extent as the rest of the class. With better understanding has come higher expectations and therefore higher achievement.
As is important with sport, we have gained in creating an atmosphere of safe competition and the collaboration with other close-by schools, which allows many children to experience this as part of the curriculum but also when representing the school.
The funding has helped to make PE and sport part of the fabric of our school, which in turn has encouraged more children to be involved in a wider variety of sports. Sporting activities are enjoyed by all children from the ages of 4 to 11, both within and outside of the curriculum requirements.
Thanks to the on-going connections with other schools within B&NES and the Palladian Academy Trust, and the support of external providers, the teachers are continuing to learn and progress their knowledge of teaching sport and PE to a high level.
