Government funding for PE – 2014-2015
You may be aware that in the spring of 2013, the government stated that they were going to be giving schools across the country a total of £150 million pounds over the next 2 years, to help continue the Olympic legacy. This amounts to £8000 for each school and then a further £5 extra for every child. For Kings Furlong Juniors, we received just over £9,000 to help develop PE in our school.
Through the Sports Premium Funding, our aim is to:
Through discussions with members of staff and observing PE sessions, it is evident that the children have had a range of different sports taught to them this year, including through Planet Sport and other outside agencies. Planet Sport have provided clear and well differentiated lessons, which have engaged all children. The children have enjoyed learning new skills to help develop their understanding of tag rugby, basketball, athletics and especially gymnastics. Teachers have developed their own CPD through a variety of ways, such as, observing lessons, team teaching with the Planet Sport coach and also a mixture of the two. Members of staff are feeling more confident and have had the opportunity to look at different ways to teach different skills in an effective way.
We’ve also provided further outside agencies to come in and teach different year groups. We’ve had FA coaches coming in and teaching the year 4’s football. We had Hook cricket club come in and teach cricket to a variety of different year groups. This was particularly successful as the children thoroughly enjoyed the different ways to play and learn cricket. Furthermore, the members of staff who joined in also learnt a great deal, which has made them feel more confident when teaching this particular sport. Lower school got the opportunity to have an outside agency rugby club come in to teach and develop their skills, which they then used in a rugby tournament later on in the year. Mr Wotton has taught year 5’s hockey this summer term, which they have thoroughly enjoyed and then transferred the new skills into a hockey tournament. Finally, as part of some PPA cover, Mr Smith, who is part of Arsenal football club, has been teaching PE lessons to years 5 and 6, whilst also providing a tournament for our year 6’s to celebrate finishing their SATS.
We have continued to run the wide variety of clubs, which was initiated last year. 87% of children participated in at least 1 after school club this year. As well as the class teachers running clubs, we also had Mr Smith running a free afterschool football club with 40 children taking part, which was funded by the school all year. We have also continued our gifted and talented football club, which is held in the mornings and run by Arsenal football club for all year groups with 40 children taking part. The school has taken part in a variety of competitions this year, such as: football tournament run by Southampton football club for our gifted and talented children, 2 mini football tournaments for year 5 and 6, a rugby league and 2 rugby tournaments for both upper and lower school, a hockey tournament for upper school, an athletics tournament, netball matches with schools in and around the area and finally year 4 football matches with other schools.
