What is Sports Premium?
The government has provided additional funding since academic year 2013/14 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is ring-fenced so schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport but have the freedom to choose how they do this. In September 2017, the Department for Education announced the doubling of the Primary PE & Sport Premium and it currently continues at this level.
In financial year 2018/19 Barnes Primary’s funding allocation was £19,810. The money was assigned towards additional expenditure on PE and sport as follows:
Employing a dedicated sports Teaching Assistant and extending administrative hours to allow pupils to participate in more competitive sport (£6,400);
Providing additional sporting clubs four mornings per week, many of which are targeted at those children who either profess not to like sport or who don’t have the opportunity to access it outside school (£3,700)
Installing adventure trail apparatus in the KS2 playground to improve balance and upper body and core strength (£6,057);
Early Years dance and movement training for our PE teacher, which has subsequently been cascaded to all KS1 teaching staff (£1,700);
Commissioning agility play trail markings in the KS1 playground to encourage movement, balance and co-ordination in our younger pupils (£1,352);
Subsidising holiday and extended hours sport and fitness club places for pupils that have fewer opportunies to be active out of school (£635).
Outcomes to date:
Sports Teaching Assistant: this appointment was made part way through 2017/18 and has given the school significant additional capacity to both organise sports events and to accompany pupils to fixtures off site as well as organising a new intra-school competition programme which will allow the majority of our pupils to play competitively during the year. Latest figures are as follows:
The percentage of children per year group that have taken
part in at least one competitive sporting fixture against
Year 3 – 34%
Year 4 – 50%
Year 5 – 48% (higher if cricket tournament hadn’t been rained off)
Year 6 – 70%
The percentage of children per year group who have taken
part in one of the newly instigated intra-school Friday matches:
Year 3 – 83% (53 out of 64 children)
Year 4 – 93% (37 out of 40 children)
Year 5 – 73% (33 out of 45 children)
Year 6 – 64% (29 out of 45 children)
