PE and Sport Premium Funding

For the 2019/20 academic year, our school has received a total of £20,020 in PE Sport Premium funding. This is for the entire school from reception to year 6.

The funding may be used in a variety of ways, but the aims is to provide opportunities before, during and after the school day. The following PE and Sport Premium funding actions plan (updated termly, with the final report uploaded in April) explains the breakdown of the spend, the intended impact of the spending and the sustainability of the funding. The funding aims to improve sport, PE and physical activity at our school through five key indicators:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
  • Raising the profile of PE and sport across the whole school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and school sport.
  • Offer all pupils a broader range of sports and activities.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

Throughout the school, our sports coach, Mr N Francourt, continues to teach across the entire school for four days a week. He also assists with providing additional opportunities and specialist coaching in various sports, including football and cricket.

This year, we have strived to boost the overall physical activity levels of children (particularly in KS2 who generally have a more sedentary day). We have introduced new clubs, with no cost, run voluntarily by members of staff in gymnastics, athletics, netball, dodgeball, football and quick cricket; as the year progresses, we hope to increase the range further. This compliments the previous extended services paid club offer. We are particularly proud to be introducing a free New Age Kurling club specifically for those who may struggle to access other clubs. Many of these sports also prepare our children for competitive opportunities with the London Borough of Croydon and beyond.

In order to track the physical activity levels of children at our school, termly questionnaires are completed in order to fund out how active our children are in and out of school, who accesses clubs and who had had access to further sporting opportunities. This in turn shapes future club offers and provides an insight into the children’s general involvement in sport.

In addition to this, the funding has been used to raise the profile of sport across the school. One way we have done this is by providing opportunities to visit major sporting venues to see professional sport in action. In November 2019, we took 69 children to visit Wembley Stadium to watch the England Lionesses in the world-record attendance match against Germany Women. We have also arranged to visit the London Stadium (formally the Olympic Stadium) for the Muller Anniversary Games in July 2020. We are continuously looking into more opportunities to visit sports events that aim to motivate and inspire all of our pupils.

As a school, we look forward to continuing to develop participation and learning in sport, physical education and physical activity.
