2017–2018 Data

(Please alsoo refer to the downloadable PDF in the sidebar which offers an update of the 2017/17 Evaluated Spending).

The grant this academic year is £16,900, which will be spent on:

  • Smoothing out the school field, including mole treatments to make it safe and accessible for sports activities; £2,234
  • Widening the access and a new secure gate to ensure the safety of the children when using the field for sports and cluster sporting events; £1,090
  • Sports partnership with the cluster schools. This provides opportunities for competitive sports within the cluster and the county and training the Y5/6 pupils as sports ambassadors; £1,000
  • Anomaly board on the playground offering fitness and healthy eating activities during playtimes; £3,762.50
  • Coaching by professional coaches for Tag Rugby, Dance, Tennis and Cricket. This allows both the children and staff to improve their skills; £2,480
  • Transport to swimming for Y4/5; £600
  • Bicycle/ road safety training for Y5; £264
  • Equipment for sports activities including balls, shin pads, netball hoops, New Age Kurling sets; £250.95

The balance of £4,718.55 will be spent during the summer term on new equipment, kits and staff training.

The impact of this is to encourage increased participation in sports, offering both competitive and non competitive opportunities.  The exercise and healthy eating videos played on the playground during breaks will further encourage the children to eat well and be fitter through exercise.  Professional coaches ensure that teachers are also trained in teaching these sports to future classes.

The impact is measured through analysing the numbers of children taking part in the cluster events and their continued participation with the sports going forwards.

The impact of the sports funding was to increase the physical activity of all the children through the use of Sports Ambassadors who were trained though the School Sports Partnership. These children led playtime and lunch time games throughout the spring and summer terms on the playground with a programme for all classes. (100%)

The impact of sport training was to increase the confidence of members of staff when teaching their own lessons which in itself had an impact on children taking part in sports teams in all the Partnership events. We were able to enter teams for all the events planned. The girls’ cricket team went through to the county finals.

The multi-skills coaching for the younger children increased their fitness levels as well as encouraging them to take part in different sports., as measured by their attendance at clubs provide by the school and in the local community. Sports equipment was purchased to enhance the teaching and learning – this included new bats and balls which can be used at playtimes as well as in lessons.

The set of sports kit gave a smarter look to the teams and made the children feel proud to represent their school.

The children who benefitted from the extra swimming were able to swim at least 25 metres.
