Sports Premium Funding
The Government has provided a further funding of £150 million per annum for another academic year; 2019/20. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. This money comes directly to school to improving the quality of sport and PE for all our children.
The purpose of the funding is to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport that we offer. It will enable us to have a greater capacity and capability at school to ensure that the improvements we make will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
We will know that we are meeting these standards as we will see all pupils engaging in regular physical activity with the profile of PE and Sport being raised from EYFS throughout school. There will be increased confidence, knowledge and skills for all of our staff in engaging pupils in regular physical activity. There will be a broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils and increased participating in competitive sport.
How are we spending our £18, 710 in 2019-2020? Who will benefit from this and how?
The Governors, the Headteacher and the PE CO-Ordinator at school agree that if all our teachers are confident in teaching PE and Sport, the children will receive the best quality of teaching and will thrive in confidence too.
In order for our provision of PE and sport to be improved, our priority is to support all of our teachers to deliver high quality PE and sport. This way, not only are the teachers and support staff going to gain confidence but the children will receive a higher quality of PE.
At Carleton Green, we want to ensure that all children will benefit from this funding, regardless of their sporting ability. We want to encourage children to have a go and try something new. This is to allow them to improve their Growth Mindset.
We want to provide the opportunity for children to compete at competition and tournament level. In addition to this, we want our children to have a range of good-quality equipment to provide them to be active at all given opportunities.
Below is how we intend to spend our funding this year:
How will we ensure these improvements are sustained?
We believe that if all of the teachers feel confident in teaching in all areas of PE and sport through good practice and have seen first-hand quality PE and sport, they will maintain this.
Through observations of teaching, monitoring of planning and assessment gathering, the PE Co-ordinator, the headteacher and the Governors can ensure that these improvements are being maintained.
The PE Co-Ordinator will also be monitoring and tracking the children who have participated in PE, sport, extra-curricular and competitions. This will show that the participation of PE and sport continues to improve.
Outdoor learning spaces will continue to be developed and maintained for pupils to access in learning time and playtimes. The recycled plastic bottle greenhouse will be used to grow vegetables for our kitchen “Feeling Peckish” promoting healthy eating.
Pupils’ exposure to an increasing range of sport and skillsets should open opportunities for our pupils to pursue these activities now and in their futures.
By having active children we hope to engineer a Healthy Mindset in our pupils that will follow through their time at Carleton Green and beyond.
What was the impact of the 2018/2019 allocation?
Being part of the Wyre and Fylde Schools Sports Partnership allowed our school to be part of a cluster with other schools where best practice was shared. It also allowed our school to take part in competitive sport throughout the year in a wide range of sporting activities. This partnership also allowed our children to be exposed to sports which they hadn’t encountered before through before/after school clubs run by experienced coaches. This enhanced the range of extra-curricular clubs at school.
We enhanced our PE storage facility to allow for the PE equipment to be more accessible to all stakeholders avoiding time slippage and allowing for better delivery of PE.
The purchase of new PE equipment ensured a broad range of equipment covered the curriculum and enhanced learning during breaks and lunchtimes with structured play.
We continued with the strong links with Fleetwood Town FC who supported active lunchtimes with an experienced coach.
We enhanced our existing school hall providing an acceptable indoor sporting environment. This included replacing the wooden floor with non-slip flooring and installation of new IT and sound equipment, to enable PE to be delivered in an exciting and innovative way.
What were our swimming results, of our end of year 6 and what was the impact of the 2018/2019 allocation?
These results are pending.
