Sports Grant

Stanhope Primary School PE and Sport Premium Grant Academic Year 2015-2016 The government has provided additional funding of over £450 million over the 3 academic years (2013/ 2014, 2014 /2015 and 2015/ 2016) to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities primary schools offer their pupils. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Basis of allocation Allocations for the academic year 2015/16 have been calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 as recorded on January 2015 Census. Stanhope receives £8,000 plus £5 per pupil. Purpose of funding Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer. Possible uses for the funding might include:


 hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

 provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

 introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport

 support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs

 run sport competitions

 increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

 run sports activities with other schools


Accountability Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on how primary schools spend their PE and sport premium funding. Physical Education at Stanhope At Stanhope we aim to improve the overall competence and confidence in physical education for all children by offering a broad range of activities. We endeavour to:


 encourage children to work and play together and to learn from group activities the importance of physical controls  to improve co-ordination

 to enable all children to improve their physical skills whilst using their imagination and physical talents

 to evaluate the feelings experienced throughout their bodies during physical activity and to realise the ‘achievement factor’ following exercise

Stanhope takes part in inter-school tournaments for football and swimming. Stanhope provides lunch-time and after school PE activities organised by both teaching staff and our sports coach to include:  Football  Running  Table tennis Our residential trips are offered to all KS2 children and all include an element of physical exercise. The children all enjoy participating in the activities offered and include orienteering, cycling, walking, high ropes, low ropes and sand yachting– all provided and supervised by qualified professionals. Stanhope’s Expenditure 2015-16 We received £8,920 for the academic year 2015/16. We spent this on: 1. Gedling Sports Partnership £2,000 At Stanhope, creating a lasting legacy is at the forefront of our thinking. In the summer term we engaged a sports teacher through Gedling Sports Partnership to work in school half a day per week. He has provided Continuous Professional Development (CPD) for our staff to ensure they have the skills and confidence to deliver high quality PE. The PE Coordinator has also benefitted from consultancy time which has been used in developing PE in school. Staff have attended training to provide them with the skills and resources to deliver tennis sessions. Gedling Sports Partnership has also provided Playground Leaders training for year 5 and 6 pupils, who are now running sports events during playtimes. These Playground Leaders will train younger children who will be future Leaders, ensuring sustainability of the initiative, 2. Qualified football coach, one day per week £6,920 Over the 2015-16 academic year, we have paid for a qualified, highly experienced coach with more than 20 years’ experience to work with both KS1 and KS2 children (1 day per week). Teaching staff observe and work alongside the coach to further develop and improve their confidence and skills in the teaching of PE at Stanhope. This provides each teacher with a personalised CPD opportunity, while also providing the children with opportunities to learn new skills, raise self-esteem, improve team work and apply skills to different situations. School football teams compete in local leagues and competitions. The coach also organises lunchtime activities. 2016/17 allocation For 2016/17 we have budgeted to receive £8,919. We are planning to spend:


1. £4,000 to continue to engage the sports teacher from Gedling Sports Partnership.

2. £3,500 for an apprentice to deliver lunchtime and after-school clubs. He will be introducing new sports and activities and will be involved in running competitions and enabling the children to participate in competitions.

3. £1,000 on equipment to increase the range of activities Stanhope can offer, including more after-school clubs and competitions. We will purchase equipment to provided structured activities during playtimes.

4. £419 to continue paying for the football coach to work with children and teachers to help staff teach PE more effectively and run lunchtime football.
