Sports Premium

Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

 

The Government has extended the Sport Premium funding for all schools until 2020. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

 

ALL pupils leaving Primary school should be 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 premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport to encourage the development of healthy active lifestyles. It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following five key indicators:

1) The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.

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 sport and activities offered to all pupils.

5) Increased participation in competitive sport.

 

The following plans show how the Sport Premium is allocated in our school:

Swimming at St Hild's

 

At St Hild's, our children in KS2 complete swimming lessons at Freeman's Quay Leisure Centre. Typically, Year 6 attend every week during the Autumn Term, Year 5 attend every week during the Spring Term and Year 4 attend every week during the Summer Term.

Assessments are completed by the swimming teacher and these are shared with school staff.

 

Attainment in Swimming

95% of our Year 6 cohort (2016 - 2017) met the expected standard in swimming at the end of KS2.

To date, 71% of our current Year 6 cohort (2017 - 2018) are working at the expected standard in swimming for the end of KS2.

Amazing news! We are one of only 3 schools in Durham (and about 100 in the whole country) to have been awarded the Platinum Sports Award for our commitment to Sport and PE.

Everyone really enjoyed the Yoga day


Comments from the children:

It was so relaxing.

She read a story and we had to be different animals.

The meditation at the end was so relaxing, I almost fell asleep.

My favourite was the downward dog. The tree was tricky and you need to have good balance.

I enjoyed the whole thing.

I can't believe how good it made me feel.

The only was you could improve it is by giving us a longer session.

Our Squeezy Rider day was a great success!

 

Comments from the children:

I liked the part where we rode the special bike.

It was really good fun.

Everyone got a turn on the bike.

I enjoyed drinking the smoothie.

I can't believe how much sugar there is in our treats.

I'd love to do it again!

 

Exciting News! We've been awarded the School Games Gold Award again this year for our commitment to sport and physical activity in school.
