Sports premium funded activities Thurlton 2017-2018 updated


Thurlton-Primary-376-LoResWhat is Sports Premium Funding?

Use of government funding to improve standards in quality of PE. Give opportunities for all children to participate thorough in-school sessions from sport providers, and for staff to improve their skills in line with new developments in curriculum and training so they may continue this work. Provide extra opportunities for many children to access sport to foster their own enthusiasm through after school clubs. Improve provision for early years outdoor play.

At Thurlton Primary School we believe that sport not only contributes to the physical development of pupils but also makes a significant contribution to pupils' personal well-being and enjoyment of school. Our aim is to provide at least two hours of PE provision per week, whether it be through direct sports teaching during curriculum time or through lunchtime or extra-curricular after school provision. We hope to widen the children’s experiences by introducing them to activities which may be new to them and giving them opportunities to participate and interact with children from other settings. Staff will also be up-skilled through CPD and working alongside experts, to enable them to offer high quality PE and sport activity sessions.

Our residential visits focus on outdoor and adventurous activity challenges such as rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, rafting, archery and orienteering.

How funding for Year 2016-2017 was allocated: £8819

Teachers and Teaching Assistants participated during the sessions working alongside the coach and worked towards leading their own sessions to develop their own confidence and skills. Staff noted how the sessions were very much rooted on skill building as a step by step process and took on lots of ideas from this to embed into future planning. Pupils developed these key skills and good progress was shown in assessments provided. Through participation in team games pupils developed their social and moral skills to be better team players and competitive ‘sports people’.

We intend to continue and expand on this next year.

In addition to in-school sessions pupils have had access to Football (separated into KS1 & KS2), Multi-Skills and Tennis School sessions – these were provided free of charge to the pupils.

Assessments provided showed progress in skills and competitive attitude.
