Sports Premium 2014 -2015

Sports Premium Funding 2014/15

 

What is the Sport Premium?

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 

St Catherine’s have received £9785 in the financial year 2014/15 Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. This report includes funding, as part of our overall spends, on physical education which is a key driver for our school.

 

Accountability

From September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport, within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance, so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision

 

How are we using the funding to benefit St Catherine’s children?

 

We are employing a specialist PE consultant to work alongside teachers to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE. A cluster of Didsbury schools have bought into the services of a PE consultant. For us this is for one day per week. Mr Callaghan works on a rolling programme of staff training and support over the academic year. He provides intensive training for our NQTs and staff new to the school, as a priority.

 

In addition, we have provided the following sports provision:

 

  • Lacrosse Coaching from Manchester Waconians to teach Years 5/6
  • Bike Right, which is a scheme to teach cycling proficiency to our year 5 children
  • Gaelic Football coaching from Oisins Gaelic Football for our Year 3/4 children
  • Tennis Coaching from the Northern Tennis Club to teach Year 5
  • ‘Wake up, shake up’ club every Tuesday morning before school
  • Swimming lessons for all year 4 children
  • Continued links with The Barlow High school for PE and sports provision

FIT 4 LIFE

The club continued this year and is funded using money from the Sports Premium allocation. This is run by the school's Physical Education consultant, Mr Callaghan.

Throughout the year we intend to invite students throughout Key Stages 1 & 2.  Currently in the Autumn Term we are working with Years 3 & 4, mainly.  At the club pupils experience a wide range of fun and inclusive activities that are designed to improve fundamental movement skills, core sports skills, activity specific fitness and general fitness for a healthy active life.

 

Whilst the club is open to all children we particularly welcome children who perhaps need that little bit of extra help with their physical development.

 

The club is on Tuesday afternoons straight after school. 

 

Extra-Curricular

Sports Day

Annually, we have a celebration of the children’s physical ability and tenacity during our Sports Day, which is held at Barlow High School for all of KS1 & KS2. EYFS have their own Sports Day in school.

 

Sports Leaders

This year, we trained our Year 6 children as sports leaders, splitting the playground into different zones to allow the children to benefit from a wide variety of activities, in a much more controlled environment.
