Sports Premium

Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport
This is how we have decided to allocate the PE and Sports Premium:

Old Clee Primary Academy School Sport

Old Clee Primary Academy has always provided a wide variety of sports through lessons or as extra-curricular activities.  Our teaching staff receives high quality training through our partnership with the Local School Sports Partnership Programme and they deliver  some sessions where staff work alongside specialist PE coaches.  In addition, in KS2 all our pupils get the opportunity to have a PE session taken by a Premier Sports Coach.  All children from year one onwards experience a wide variety of sporting activities and also have the opportunity to take part in  focused sporting events during the year through our partnerships with Secondary Schools and through our partnership working with other local Academies.  Here our Sports Leaders create sporting inter school competitions or events for children across several schools to participate in. These focus sports include mini Olympics, cross country, Dodge Ball, orienteering, athletics, multi-skills, kwik cricket and rounders. Children who exhibit a talent are encouraged to attend local sports clubs and they are often offered the opportunity to take part in regional and national fiinals such as Table Tennis and Football.


What is the Sports Premium Grant?

The government has provided funding for the last 3 academic years to help schools improve the quality of sport and PE for all their children.


How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.  Old Clee will receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil so are expecting to receive around £10,625


How is the Sports Premium Grant being spent this year?

This grant is being used to improve provision for all of our pupils in the following ways:


Ensuring children experience quality PE provision including the professional development of staff

  • Buying into the School Sports Partnership to continue to allow for inter school competitions to be developed and participated in by pupils; mixed groups to be catered for as well as the more able pupils; coaches to enable our pupils to experience a wide range of sporting opportunities using trained, skilled staff who also up- skill  Old Clee staff in the delivery of sports provision;


Providing equipment and resources for PE, Break time, Lunchtime and extra-curricular provision

  • Purchasing new playground equipment in order to provide a more structured approach to physical activity across the lunch time period and to enhance after school provision – equipment that will lend itself to a circuit training type course.  Purchasing outdoor screens and TVs for structured ‘dance’ activities both during the lunch break and for after school clubs. Introduce adult supervised football matches at lunch 


Providing opportunities for children to compete

  • Cost of transport to competitions, events and festivals within the SSP, Regional and National competitions, and with the Academies with whom we collaborate 


How will the Sports Premium be monitored?

  • The use of the Sports Premium Grant will be monitored and reviewed by the SLT and Governors
  • Observations of PE lessons to ensure quality teaching and learning are taking place
  • Participation levels monitored and reviewed  for groupings, accessibility and to inform targeted intervention of those types not experiencing  much physical activity or sporting opportunities .
  • Pupil voice – views of children sought to give intelligence on attitudes, ensure we are providing opportunities they want.


Continued developments in PE opportunities at Old Clee Primary Academy

  • Links and support from the Schools Sports Partnership
  • Links with other schools to share best practice: Kidgate, Lisle Marsden, Bursar, Thrunscoe, St Peters
  • Provide numerous competition opportunities, e.g. indoor athletics competition, cross-country competition, multi-skills festivals, tag-rugby tournament etc.
  • Provide sports events for MA children.
  • Provide relevant CPD opportunities
  • Provide training for staff to provide a 10 week club to encourage those children who do not participate in after school sports clubs to develop an interest in PE and sport run through Change 4 life.
  • Provide a range of clubs run by qualified staff or coaches. These clubs provide links with clubs in the town, e.g. football, netball, Table Tennis, Cross country.
  • Link up with other local schools to enable all children to take part in a sports event.
