PE and Sport Premium Funding

The Government is providing funding to improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools since 2013. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport to primary school’s to spend on improving the quality of Sport and PE for all their children.

We are proud of our Physical Education curriculum at Phoenix Arch School. We aim to create a learning environment where every child is physically confident and able to find something that pupils are good at and enjoy. We also aim to develop families and pupil understandings of recreational facilities within our community.

Funding is based on the number of pupils that were registered on the school census in January 2017. The premium for the 2017 to 2018 academic year is paid in two instalments from the Secretary of State to the authority as follows:

1st instalment in April ’17 for September 2016 to March 2017 £3412
2nd instalment in Dec’17 for April 2017 to December 2017 £9578
Total Allocation for 2017/18 £12,990

We used our funding for 2017 – 2018 in a number of ways:

  • Bounce Therapy £3200 for pupils.
  • Nexus Tec Ltd: sports equipment £499
  • Continuous Professional Development for teaching staff, training to staff £210.

The impact of this funding is measure through:

Rebound therapy

Rebound therapy has made a positive impact in the school achievement. Progress has been apparent in physical development as well as benefiting pupils in areas of their personal and social development. It has been used to support independence, communication and interaction, social skills such as turn taking, peer assessment and evaluation and a supportive tool to those with therapy programmes to co-inside with their OT sessions. Cross curricular links have been made using Rebound Therapy such as descriptive language in literacy, comparative language, ordinal numbers in maths and the effects of forces in science, to name but a few. Staff and parents often report an improvement in a range of areas including core strength, coordination, eye contact, fluency of movement, posture, stamina and a general sense of achievement and well – being.

  • Developing strength, balance, and overall fitness.
  • Burning up calories.
  • Strengthening the heart, lungs, and lower-body muscles and bones.
  • Developing and strengthening the muscles surrounding the knees without impact.

The impact of this funding will be measured through:

As a result of offering planned structured playground activities on an all-weather pitch, pupil’s health and fitness has developed. We have a very low occurrence of obesity in our pupils. Parents report that their children now enjoy going to recreational facilities within the community.

Year five and six attended a school’s football tournament with other schools across London offering greater opportunities for community engagement. Observations of PE lessons demonstrate that all pupils are actively engaged in learning and they understand what they need to do to stay fit.

2015-16

Last year we were awarded £8,150.00 sports grant.

At Phoenix Arch we believe that pupil’s education extends beyond the classroom. We aim to provide our pupils with life experiences that develop skills and enrich pupil’s development beyond the classroom.

We have chosen to spend our sports grant broadening pupil’s knowledge and experience in keeping healthy within the community. We are also broadening our range of sports equipment and storage facilities.

As a result of the grant pupils have had the opportunity to have swimming, ice skating and horse riding. These activities are available within our local community and we aim to develop our pupil’s ability to access these throughout life. We have also updated our equipment to take into account the changing needs of our school. This year we have purchased BMX bicycles and it is our aim that all pupils will be able to ride independently of stabilisers by the time they leave our school. We also aim to have independent skaters.

As a result of the grant more pupils were able to learn to swim and pupils have a greater knowledge of sports activities available within our community. We will continue to develop sports in our community for this academic year.

Future plans include:

  • Continuous Professional Development for teaching staff
  • Refurbishment of sports ground over the coming year.
  • £1000 for Sayers Croft staffing costs for outdoor activities to include orienteering, rock climbing, archery and tree / rope walk.

Impact will be measured through PE lesson observations for pupil enjoyment and enthusiasm. Pupil involvement in additional sports activities. Parental feedback.
