At All Faiths’ Children’s Academy, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. PE forms part of our ‘Thinking Healthily’ Curriculum.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing annual funding to provide increased, improved health and sporting opportunities and outcomes for primary pupils. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E. for all their children. Each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil each year. Here at All Faiths’ Children’s Academy that means around £ 17,800 a year. The money can only be spent on sports and PE provision in schools.

The total amount our school is receiving for the year 2021/22 is £18,060.

Purpose of the funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and Sport, in order to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Port Premium funding. It is the schools that will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE.
  • New or additional Change4life sports clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release teachers and teaching assistants (TA’s) for development in PE/sport
  • Increasing participation In the inter and intra school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • Buying quality equipment to ensure all children are able to participate in PE and sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits

Monitoring and Evaluation

  • Reports will be written and will be updated annually at the end of each academic year to identify the success of the above initiatives and the impact that they have had.
  • Delivery will be monitored by the PE co-ordinator in the first instance. This will be overseen and managed by senior leaders.
  • Monitor the take-up of extra-curricular activities
  • Monitoring will include observations of teaching, drop-ins to clubs run by school staff, and outside agencies to ensure that provision is of high quality
  • Review work will also be carried out by the Howard Partnership who are working to ensure effective delivery through the local sports partnership.

At All Faiths’ Children’s Academy we are committed to ensuring that all pupils will receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teachers and coaches. The sport premium funding is allowing us to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a new curriculum based on developing children’s physical literacy skills. Regular staff training opportunities are provided for teachers and teaching assistants (TA’s) to keep them abreast of new initiatives.

Teachers, TA’s and professional coaches provide a wide range of after school clubs, both for team and individual sports. All Faiths’ Children’s Academy has recently begun to take part in local sports competitions and have won the Fair play award during one such competition.

Sustainability of spending 2019-20

By using our PE coaches as we do, they not only coach our children but train our teachers at the same time. This has increased the skills of our staff and has allowed them to deliver higher quality lessons and clubs.

We have invested in PE resources and teaching materials that will allow us to deliver an increased range of skills and activities with greater confidence this year and in the future.

We have trained some of our older children to support and encourage their peers. The ‘Sports Crew’ organise activities during playtimes.

Sports Premium report.

This academic year the school has achieved many successes and improved the pupils’ physical literacy skills in a variety of ways. Our main target was to improve and develop the pupils’ gymnastics and agility. The staff found this an area of weakness and so the school funding helped to support this by buying in a professional sports coaches for gymnastics and dance to develop and improve the staffs’ skills and confidence. The regular training provided opportunities for the teachers to work alongside the coaches, develop their abilities, learn new initiatives and embed a clear assessment system. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed being able to use a wide of equipment and learn new skills.

Whilst improving the pupils’ skills in gymnastics, the school also used the funding to progress and develop the Mini Youth games teams and developing intra-trust sporting competitions. In the previous year the pupils had after school clubs to promote the different sports whilst supporting them in learning the skills and rules. This year the school continued to provide afterschool sports clubs but also the coaches were used regularly during the lessons to embed the skills and develop the gifted and talented pupils within sport. The pupils took part in more tournaments than in the previous year: Tag Rugby, Hockey, Basketball, Badminton, Netball, Kwik cricket, Football and Athletics. We also took part in the Disability Youth Games series, competing in each of the Swimming, Skiing and Summer Games.

We won the plate competition at MYG basketball, coming out on top against some schools much larger than us!                                                                                                                                                                                                    Your preferences have prevented this content from being loaded.
