Sports Premium 2019 2020

Use and impact of sport premium funding

In the 2019-2020 academic year we received £18,230 with £9038 committed from the previous year.

The aim of our sport premium spending is to ensure that all children at South Green Juniors are given the best possible opportunities to access regular physical activity, high quality teaching, broad active experiences and high quality resources.

We used our sport premium funding to improve the quality of PE and sport provision in with the following intended outcomes:

  1) The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school using it as a tool for whole school improvement.

 2) Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

 3) Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

 4) The engagement in all pupils in regular physical activity.

 5) Increased participation in competitive sport.

Spending Chart

Below is a chart outlining how the sport premium money has been spent against these areas. A quarter of the money was used to redo the playground markings to provide more activities for our Play Leaders to organise and to motivate our pupils to be more active at break time and lunchtime. Some of the money was used to improve the quality of teaching through a new dance and gymnastics scheme of work. This helped to improve progression through the year groups and increase staff confidence. CPD in these areas has been organised to reinforce the new scheme of work. We have also used some of the money to purchase a broader range of equipment for use on the playground, in clubs and in PE lessons. These resources can be used to increase the quality of teaching in the lessons/clubs and allow children to be more active on the playground and in lessons. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 lockdown has impacted on some of the projects that we wanted to use the money towards. Where possible this has been committed to projects in the 2020/2021 academic year. Extra notes have been included in the table to give details of what the money was spent on. Underneath the table, information about the impact of this year’s spending has been included.

  • We aim to see an increase in children attending sports club at SGJS across all year groups. 

Before the Covid-19 lockdown there was a 5% increase in children attending sporting clubs compared to the previous time last year. The biggest increases in children attending were in year 3 and 4 football, year 3 and 4 tag rugby, year 5 and 6 football and year 5 and 6 netball. There were increases in the amount of girls doing year 5 and 6 football. We still aim to add an Athletics club next academic year.

  • Children will take part in a wider variety of sports (even if only for a taster session) and more sports will be available at the school.

Orienteering was taught in year 5 PE lessons for the first time, providing the opportunity for pupils to experience a new activity. New Age Kurling has been used with bubbles of pupils in school during the summer term. New playground equipment was purchased just before lockdown and the bubbles of pupils, which have used it, have enjoyed it. Taster days in cricket, fencing and archery were being timetabled at the time of lockdown and will be moved to next academic year.

  • An increase in pupil premium children taking part in school sport clubs.

Half of the children on the pupil premium register have taken part in a sports club this year for at least one term. This is similar to last year, however there are more children on the register so the amount of pupil premium children attending has increased.

  • A higher profile for sporting achievements around the school.

The school newsletter regularly reports about sporting performances and activities undertaken by the pupils; the pupils write the newsletter segment themselves. The school was awarded the Virtual School Games badge and Virtual School Games Commitment and Engagement Certificate by School Games. A virtual Sports Week took place during lockdown with winners and prizes reported on the newsletter. The PE noticeboard by the library has been updated and more sport teams were involved in photographs on photo day. The PE display in the hall as been refreshed with the positive impacts of PE.

  • PE being used to improve/motivate pupil in other subjects such as: creative writing; maths; PHSE; art and design and science.

A creative competition in Sports Week allowed children demonstrate PHSCE and art skills; there were lots of entries across the year groups. The new playground markings have been designed to include links to other subjects like an 8 point compass for geography and hopscotch grids with the 3,7 and 9 timetables linking to maths. The bubbles of pupils in school have responded positively to the new playground markings. Healthy Schools’ focuses are used in PE lessons monitored by the PE lead. These link into and reinforce aspects of the science curriculum.

  • Increased confidence of teachers in teaching all areas of PE.

Survey of teacher confidence of teaching different PE areas led to the purchase of a new scheme of work for dance, gymnastics and HRE. Staff have reported an increase in confidence teaching in these areas and the PE leader has seen in improvement in progression through year groups teaching the same areas. CPD to reinforce the new scheme of work in dance and cricket was organized for the summer term and will now be moved to the new academic year. AfPE membership was purchased alongside health and safety resources to consolidate staff health and safety knowledge in PE. This has promoted good discussions over new PE risk assessments in staff meetings, which are now in place.

  • Teaching of PE to be consistently good or outstanding

Observations carried out by the PE Lead during the year have shown teaching of PE to be good or outstanding across a variety of PE areas. New equipment purchased has been used by students in lessons and helped increase the breadth, quality and differentiation within lessons.

  • Children will have access to competitive sports at a higher level (targeting to get at least 45% of pupils representing the school at sport this year).

To the point of lockdown the amount of pupils (in key groups: 50% whole school; 19% SEN; 32% pupil premium) representing the school in PE activities were higher than the end of the spring term last year. The number in total was lower than the end of the previous year because of key sporting events such as district sports, netball and football being unable to take place due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

  • Children being more active at break times and lunch times

More Play Leaders were trained than the previous year, meaning more were available on the playground each day. There have been more pupils using the playleaders than the previous year and a pupil voice activity showed that students liked having them; the pupil voice showed they wanted new equipment for the playground to be used by pupils. This was purchased just before lockdown and the bubbles of pupils in school, which have used it, have enjoyed it. The new playground markings have been designed using pupil voice to provide more activities on the playgrounds, so that pupils can be more active. The bubbles of pupils that have played using the markings, have enjoyed using them.
