For the academic year 2018/2019 Carleton Green will receive an amount of £18,710 which is payable in two instalments.

 

What is the purpose of the funding?

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 participation in competitive sport.

How are we spending our funding in 2018/19?  Who will benefit?

This year the funding that we will receive is being used for the following:

  • Being part of the Wyre and Fylde Schools Sports Partnership.  This allows our school to be part of a cluster with other schools where best practice can be shared.  It also allows our school to take part in competitive sport throughout the year in a wide range of sporting activities.  This partnership also allows our children to be exposed to sports they may never have encountered before through before/after school clubs run by experienced coaches.  This enhances the range of extra curricular clubs at school. 
  • To enhance 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.

 

  • Purchase of new PE equipment to ensure a broad range of equipment to cover the curriculum and to enhance learning during breaks and lunchtimes with structured play.
  • Continuing with the strong links with Fleetwood Town FC who support active lunchtimes with an experienced coach. 

 

  • To enhance our existing school hall to provide an acceptable indoor sporting environment. This includes 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.   

 

Swimming Statistics

In the 2017/18 academic year, a new condition was brought in requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

In 2018/19 we have 46 children in year 6. There are 6 children who have not met the required standard. 

 

 

Impact of 2017/2018 allocation

Children have been introduced to a more varied range of sporting activities, which has increased the level of activity in our school. It has opened up opportunities for our pupils as they have pursued these activities outside of school.  This is evident from club registers.

Our participation in competitive sport has increased with the support of Fleetwood Town. High schools have not had the capacity to engage. Year 10 pupils come to school to support events.

Carleton Green Goes Green campaign has successfully developed outdoor spaces to enable children to work in nature.. This has had a positive impact on mental health. Our therapy dog also encourages outdoor activities to release anxiety and tension.

The EYFS playground has been developed to promote up and over techniques, problem solving and collaborative play.

How will we ensure these improvements are sustained?

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.

We still have strong links with Wyre and Fylde Schools Sports Partnership and Fleetwood Town and the further developments outlined for this academic year will continue to enhance PE lessons and ensure that they are of high quality.
