Medstead Church of England Primary School

Achieving excellence for all children

within an inspiring and inclusive environment

Sports Premium

What is the PE and sports premium?

Although the Olympics may be a distant memory, the legacy of London 2012 continues. To help fund Olympians of the future all primary schools received additional PE funding each academic year. For the academic year 2019/20, Medstead received £7,412.00.

 

Below is a joint statement from the Department for Education and the Department for Culture, Media & Sport about the PE and sports premium:

“We are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We will allocate this extra funding directly to primary headteachers.”

“Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lesson
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

 

How the money is used?

Our aim at Medstead is to “develop children’s physical literacy to create a love of movement”. To do this we aim to; increase our children’s engagement in regular activity, raise the profile of sport and physical activity throughout the school and community, improve staff confidence and knowledge of physical activity, offer a broad range of activities to allow all children to succeed, and develop more opportunities for all children to participate in competitive sports.    

 

The majority of our sports premium is used through the Alton Sports Partnership. The role of this partnership is to increase the confidence of teaching staff and resources available to them, develop new planning and curriculum opportunities in sport and PE

and further develop the extra-curricular timetable to give all children the chance to be active after school. To date nine new sporting areas have been added through this partnership; Cross Country Running, Orienteering, Trampolining, a Swimming Gala, Dodgeball, Table Tennis, Sportshall Athletics, Tri Golf and Rounders. We feel this method provides excellent training for our school to leave a lasting legacy of PE. Through these areas the school has targeted those children who have a need to develop there participation in physical and sporting opportunities.

 

We have also invested in a significant amount of new PE equipment. From wall bars in the hall to new netball posts outside and an orienteering course around the school grounds, we have added a wide variety of equipment to allow all children to experience a greater range of activities in physical education.

 

Finally we are looking to find ways to improve the health of members of our school community. One way we are trying to do this is with more “active breaks” during the school day. We have already started the Golden Mile and will look to develop this and other ideas further over the next few years.

 

 

During the school year 2019/20 the school's allocated grant (£17,786) was spent on:

  • The employment of a Specialist PE Teacher
  • Providing cover to release teachers for professional development in PE/Sport
