Sports premium grant expenditure:
Report to Governors: 2014-2017

 

 

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.

The Government Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport have provided this funding to school.  Each school receives an amount of money determined by how many pupils are in the school.  This money must only be spent on sports provision. The funding - the Primary PE and Sport Premium - provides money directly to primary school head teachers, carrying on the sporting legacy of the Olympics.

At Holbrook Primary School we value the importance of physical education in keeping children fit, active and healthy.  As well as promoting good health, school sport has an important role in building confidence and a sense of achievement. We feel school sport gives our children opportunities to work individually and collaboratively fostering a true sense of belonging.  Because of this belief we are already a member of the Gosport School Sports Partnership which costs us £3000 a year.

Through the Gosport School Sports Partnership, until July 2016, we had access to a range of highly skilled coaches who regularly provided coaching to our pupils during PE lessons.  Teachers observed these lessons in order to improve their own practice.  In 2013-14 our children benefitted from coaching in gym, multiskills, basketball and football.  The coaching sessions were followed by festivals at Bridgemary School where pupils were given the opportunity to compete with other schools.  During the summer term we also had the opportunity to take part in tag rugby and cricket coaching.  In 2014-15 our children had coaching in multi-skills, basketball and cricket. In 2015-16 we the children had coaching in multi-skills & cricket.  In 2016-17 the sports partnership has ceased to exist though Bridgemary School is continuing to support their feeder schools by putting on festivals that our pupils can attend, as appropriate.

In addition, our Gifted and Talented children are regularly invited to take part in after school G & T sessions at Bridgemary.  This year we have already been very successful in cross country and year 3 and 4 are currently enjoying football coaching provided by Phill Moody – a specialist football coach.  In 2014-15 we used swimming coaches from Aqua Academy to improve and extend our swimming provision for year 5 and will continue to do this in 2015-16. In 2015-16 we have also started a very successful cross-country running club for which we received funding from Gosport Runners in order to purchase clothing.

In addition to skilled coaching and festivals we have taken part in a number of programmes run by the School Sport Partnership.  These include Chance to Shine and Bikeability.  All of these programmes promote exercise, healthy eating and healthy lifestyles.  These are all supported by our personal development curriculum. Even with the demise of the sports partnership these opportunities are still available to us.

In 2014-15 we used some of our funding to further improve the quality of provision in PE lessons.  With other local schools we have appointed a PE specialist, to work in our school for half a day per week.  She worked alongside our teachers to help them to improve their practice.  This built a sustainable model for improving the quality of PE in our school.

In 2015/16 a sports coach worked across the Federation in order to continue to ensure high quality PE is being delivered as well as providing release for staff to have their PPA. The sports coach also offers a range of after school sports clubs each term.

In 2016/17 the sports coach will continue to work across the Federation. In addition due to the number of new staff we have again employed a PE specialist to work in school for half a day a week. She will work alongside our teachers to help them develop their practice.
