Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Report on the Use of Sports Premium Funding at Langley Primary July 2015/6.
Rationale for Use
- Oldbury has an increasing issue with obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.
- There are few open places to play in the local area which are both child friendly and safe.
- Few children take part in organised sport outside of school – although we do have some children who are competing at a high level (tennis, gymnastics, dance and swimming).
- The school already employs a full time sports coach to teach PE and run several afterschool clubs.
- The school provides activity based equipment for pupils at all breaks.
- To increase the opportunities for pupils to take part in organised and team sporting activities.
- To encourage daily activity and introduce new sports to pupils.
- To improve facilities at the school to encourage uptake and involvement.
Use of the Funding
- Part funding of a MUGA.
- Employment of a sports coach within our Breakfast Club.
- Employment of a sports coach to provide additional tuition for our more gifted pupils and children who require one to one support for learning or mobility reasons.
- Purchase of three outdoor table tennis tables to provide an additional activity that children can play within the home.
- Funding of transport for pupils to take part in organised and competitive events.
- Funding of transport to enable pupils to take part in swimming lessons for 2 terms over KS2.
- Provision of sports equipment for playgrounds in the school to encourage purposeful activity over breaktimes.
- Development of the forest area of the school for use as a forest school and as part of the orienteering provision in school.
What impact has sport premium funding made:
- Part-funding using the Sport Premium has enabled the school to build a Multi-use games arena (MUGA). This has provided pupils and staff with a high-quality environment for improved sports activities. The MUGA has enabled the development of before school sports clubs which are open to all pupils each morning. It has provided high quality facilities for new sports clubs including netball. The MUGA has also provided pupils with high-quality area to play sports such as football, basket ball and tennis during lunchtime and breaktimes. The MUGA is extremely popular with pupils and is also used as a reward for good behaviour. The construction of the MUGA has increased pupil uptake in organised sport.
- As a result of the Sports Coach joining Breakfast Club approximately 30 children take part in daily physical activity before school.
- Gifted and Talented pupils. Sports premium has part-funded the release of the Sports Coach to work with pupils who have been identified has gifted and talented at sport. The coach now has a designated period of time each week (Friday afternoons) where he is able to provide guidance and challenged for pupils with outstanding potential in Sport. These pupils are identified by the coach and they are invited to attend the group.
- A similar programme is also in place for those with learning or mobility issues. All of these children are already fully included in curriculum PE lessons but this session will provide the opportunity to develop basic sports skills beyond that possible by additional differentiation by one to one supports.
- The purchase of three outdoor table tennis tables has given pupils in Keystage 2 an opportunity to play a sport that they may not necessarily get the access to. Pupil participation is high with tables being used throughout the week
- In 2015/6 we will be offering approximately 80 children the opportunity to take part in a Forest Schools programme.
- Sport premium has been used to transport pupils to various sporting events including cross-country, athletics, football, gymnastics, tag rugby and football. We have also gained trophies in football, tag rugby, swimming, cross country and multi-sports in the recent past. In the Year 2014/5 we attended 11 different competitions – often with several teams taking part.
The school now provides very well for pupils both in terms of formal curriculum PE and more informal opportunities (such as clubs and breaktime activities). The next step is to extend such opportunities to families.
Our next review of this funding will be in Summer 2017.
