PE and Sports Funding

 

 

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding (Sport Premium) for physical education (PE), sport and physical activity to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at school, for two years. We are using the Sport Premium to improve the quality of PE and Sport provision.

We have previously allocated the majority of our sports funding towards a commitment to links with Woodkirk High School. On  a weekly basis, a specialist PE teacher lead PE lessons in our school. Children benefited from intensified coaching, staff benefited by observing as part of their professional development.  Additional funding has been spent on new external football posts to support the teaching of football. Also, a local club uses them for practise and matches, meaning that we are more successful in our efforts to reach out to the wider community. We are currently reviewing  internal coaching through the support of our school based staff and other providers such as Leeds Rhinos.

Our approach to the use of funding ensures that there will be a sustainable improvement to PE provision over time; we agreed to focus on training staff as our key priority so that the children will benefit from the funding even if it ceases to be given to schools in the future.

Our current Year 6 cohort had swimming lessons in Year 3. They will have top up lessons before they leave for High School. Current records show us that:

2017-18 allocation and impact

The PE Grant allocation for 2017/18 was £8,444.

Our PE grant funding currently stands at £8974 and includes £530 carry forward from last year's allocation. This year we will spend £8214 on Specialist Sports Coaching (from Woodkirk Academy) and £1,000 on Leeds Active Schools Service Level Agreement.  The shortfall of £240 will be paid from school budget.

The support from Woodkirk Academy was of high quality and our teaching team benefited from this specialist coaching. Staff report they feel much more confident and have a wide range of skills they can now draw upon when teaching PE. Swimming for Y4 children is a weekly activity and children are enthusiastic. PE remains to be one of the favoured subjects when we audit children's views on their lessons. 

 

Swimming and water safety is an important part of the PE curriculum at Drighlington Primary School. Not only is swimming a life-saving skill, many children enjoy swimming as a family activity and the ability to swim opens up a whole range of water-based sports (e.g. diving, water polo). We recognise that swimming is a very inclusive sport as it is one of the most accessible forms of exercise in terms of age, weight and physical ability.

Our children visit Morley Sports Centre on a weekly basis during the first 2.5 terms of Y4. Most children learn to swim during this period of time. During their final half term in Y6, they have top up swimming lessons and visit weekly to recap their skills so that they become more confident and competent swimmers by the time they leave our school.

  • 79of our Year 6 children could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m.
