PE & Sport Premium Funding
Last updated 04.10.19
PE funding 2018/19

In 2017/18 the school initially received £9,025.00 this was further increased by the government to generate a total of £14,095.

The funding was partly used (£6,000.00) to utilize the skills of the specialist teachers on the staff - the PE lead (Level 5 PE Sports Specialist Qualified) and Headteacher (B'Ed Hons. Secondary Physical Education Qualified). The majority of PE was taught largely by two experienced and outstanding practitioners ensuring the quality of teaching and learning in PE is high.

Staff who had previously been upskilled and attended CPD taught the remaining lessons for PE and team taught with the specialists wherever possible.

£2,110.00 was used for staff training, extra-curricular activities, resources and access to and participation in competitive sport opportunities. With a mile a day style running track to be introduced onto our school grounds we rolled over the remaining £5,985.00 into the 2018/19 funding.

From April 2018 the school had £24,005 allocated for PE and Sport funding. £13,000 has been allocated to increase the teaching from specialist teachers within the school. The remaining £11,005 will be used for funding the new mile a day running track, competitive sport opportunities, provision of after school clubs, INSET in Dance and Gymnastics for non-specialist staff, resources for PE and outdoor play and for external agencies to deliver programs which enhance our our PE curriculum.

We are committed to improving the PE and Sporting provision at Wanborough Primary School and believe that the model we are working too will put us in good stead as and when the funding ceases. Please refer to our PE at Wanborough Section on the school website to read about the impact of the funding and other developments within PE.

Evidence of Impact of PE Funding →


Staff

Sports funding has allowed team teach for both indoor and outdoor PE over the past four years. This has led to an increase in staff confidence and knowledge (see staff audit).

Staff feel more confident to plan, assess and deliver PE across a wide range of sports and activities.

Staff are sent on courses to develop their CPD skills, along with attending internal CPD led by the PE lead.

Many members of our staff play sport outside of work, ranging from teachers, TAs and MDSA staff.

Our PE co-ordinator has achieved a level 5 PE specialist qualification to help deliver, monitor and assist in the teaching of PE.

Our Head-Teacher is secondary PE trained and has wide range of expertise to help plan and deliver the subject.
Extra-curricular PE

Our school provides a variety of different after school clubs throughout the academic year.

Our clubs are very popular with over 85% of children at Wanborough taking part in a club at some point throughout the year.

Each morning all our children take part in a 'wake and shake' routine from '5-a-day tv'. This provides additional physical activity, as well as preparing our children for a hard working day at school.

In April '18 an all-weather running track was built in order to allow extra active opportunities during the teaching week. We are currently trialing other means of active learning, such as imoves.com and Maths of the Day.

We are lucky to have important and strong links with community clubs, such as STFC, Wiltshire Tennis and Wanborough WASPS football.

Our Children

At Wanborough, our children show great enthusiasm for PE. They learn and develop a wide variety of skills due to our curriculum provision and apply these across different sports. (see pupil voice results)

Through PE, our children are able to develop communication and evaluating skills, learn about health and well-being, as well as set and achieve personal goals.

They enjoy taking part in many after school clubs run by the school, as well as many external sporting clubs.

Our children enjoy out of school sport and are a talented bunch with fantastic footballers, rugby players, cricketers, dancers, gymnasts and roller skaters to name a few!
Provision

All classes receive 2 hours of curricular PE per week. This comprises of an indoor session and an outdoor session.

We have a wide range of resources in school to aid the teaching of PE and are lucky to have use of a hall, large field, running track and playground area to deliver PE.

Our curriculum map consists of a wide range of sports and skills which the children will learn e.g. gym, dance, pilates, athletics, orienteering, handball, basketball, netball, cricket, rounders, football, tennis, rugby and badminton.

Achievements

Our children love to represent the school in many different competitions and we regularly take teams to football, netball, tennis, gymnastics, athletics and cricket events.

In 2018 our boys' football team finished runners up in the league and our cricketers won the Swindon school qualifiers earning them a place in the county finals at Trowbridge.

In September/October 2018 we took part in Swindon's 'Beat the Street'. We placed 3rd out of all schools in the average points earned.

We are always keen to celebrate the sporting success of our pupils outside of school and regularly do so in our Newsletter.

- Teaching of new skills in lessons has increased, as well as quality of teaching in terms of improvement and how to progress.

- Children observed that all their teachers show an enjoyment in the teaching of PE.

- Participation of afterschool clubs have increased but marginally.

- Many children in 2017 also commented on the use of the running track at break and lunch times and also sometimes during lessons. Many felt that they could do more 'active' lessons so that they weren't just sitting at desks.


PE staff audit on Impact of PE Sports Funding

This year our PE funding has continued to be spent on releasing a PE specialist to deliver team teach PE across the year groups. Due to the success of team teaching, staff now teach one of their 2 hour PE lessons and the 2nd is then taught jointly. Staff were recently audited on their subject knowledge and confidence in delivering areas of PE.

Teachers were asked to rate themselves according to the following scale:

5

I am confident to teach this activity to my peers should they need support or extra training

4

I am confident to teach this activity to children and need no further training or support

3

I am happy to teach this activity as I have some knowledge and experience; however I would like to develop my skills and knowledge further through courses or INSET

2

I feel I need further training, team teach, lesson ideas and schemes to help me improve my confidence and knowledge of this activity

1

I really don't like teaching this area. I am not confident and would love to avoid it like the plague!
