Sports Funding

Find out how we have been using and how we plan to use the Primary PE and Sport Funding at our school in 2020 - 21

 

Sports Funding 2020 - 21

We receive £16K + £10 for every Y1 to Y6 pupil. In our budget this year we have £17,040. 

With this funding we have continued to buy into Pendle School Sports Partnership coaching programme.

Whilst restrictions are in place, have been unable to take part in any school-to-school competitive events; however we have been provided with links to sport challenges which can be undertaken at home during lockdown. 

We have bought into 'Sports Cool' to provide the following opportunities

  • after-school clubs (running for 6 weeks during the autumn term 2020 until lockdown): infant multi-skills and Year 3 and 4 football 
  • Lunchtime sporting activities - variety of sporting activities to keep our children fit, active and healthy for KS2 class bubbles during lunchtime

We have also:

  • paid for a professional cricket coach (former professional player) to provide coaching in curriculum time for our KS1 pupils (alongside a member of staff)
  • Provide CPD for the PE subject leader (and appropriate supply cover
  • Teacher assistant additional time: helping to run an after-school netball club; 
  • Paid for new resources such as new football goals 
  • Paid for school sports kits for new members of staff

This is in addition to activities we already provide, including:

  • PE sessions for each child per week
  • A full week residential outdoor activity weekend at Winmarleigh for our Year 6 pupils (cancelled during 2020 but booked for 2021)
  • Annual sports day (cancelled during 2020 but hopeful to go ahead in 2021)
  • Year 5 and 6 Football and netball after-school clubs (free – run by parents and staff);
  • Football friendly competitions (home and away matches) - not during COVID restrictions and lockdown
  • Swimming lessons for Year 4 (autumn 2021)
  • Competitive school to school events (i.e. netball and football fixtures due to restart in autumn 2021)

SPORTS FUNDING 2019 -20 

During lockdown we kept our school open during the Easter holiday and Spring Bank Holiday by running sports clubs throughout each full day (apart from weekends), utilising sports coaches from Sports Cool. This was in addition to using Sports Cool coaches to run after school sports clubs and  sport activities during lunchtime before lockdown.

We also organised a series of lessons on traditional Morris dancing with Malkan Morris with our Year 3 and 4 pupils. 

Prior to lockdown our funding was used to:

by into Pendle School Sports Partnership coaching programme which provided (throughout the autumn term and up to the spring term lockdown) the following opportunities to take part in competitive sport:

  • Netball league matches
  • Football league matches
  • KS1 and KS2 Indoor athletics
  • KS1 and KS2 multi-skills events
  • Quads Kids for KS2
  • Small School swimming gala (2019 champions!)
  • Y5 and 6 hockey
  • Y3/4 gymnastics
  • KS1 and KS2 Athletics
  • Y5/6 Tag Rugby

Elements of sports funding was also used to provide transport to competitive events 

 

September 2019 - March 2020 evaluation:

The success of sports funding in 2019 - 20 was limited by lockdown. We can only judge the progress made from the beginning of September 2019 until March 20th 2020 (lockdown started on March 23rd 2020). During lockdown, we utilised sports funding to pay for sports coaches who ran holiday clubs during the Easter break and the Spring Bank holiday. This allowed our school to remain open for vulnerable children and the children of key workers.
