Mill Lane School Sports Premium Policy and Projected Allocation 2020-2021

Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium

We are proud of the PE and sport provision at our school and the wealth of opportunities we offer our pupils. We understand the importance of the contribution of PE and sport to the health and wellbeing of our pupils and aim to provide every child with the necessary skills and confidence to participate in sporting activities and in leading a healthy lifestyle.

 

We aim to inspire children to be happy and active through engagement and participation in sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle within an inclusive and opportunity rich environment. We encourage our children to,

‘try, practise and succeed’.

Photographic evidence of pupil engagement can be viewed in the Curriculum PE section upon our school web site.

Mill Lane School will receive £16,000 in Sports Premium Money for 2020 – 2021, plus a premium of £10 per pupil (years 1-6) The total amount of Sport Premium Grant to be received by Mill Lane Primary School for the year is £17,650

 

Department for Education and Ofsted Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium.

All pupils leaving primary school will be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”

 

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective:

“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 (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.”

 

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
  2. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  3. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  4. Increased participation in competitive sport

In addition to this the school must also meet National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.

 

All current research indicates that pupils with good health and wellbeing achieve more academically, (Public Health England, 2014). Effective social and emotional competencies are associated with greater health and wellbeing, and greater academic achievement. The culture, ethos and environment of a school influences the health and wellbeing of pupils and their readiness to learn. Ofsted state that, “A positive association exists between academic attainment and physical activity levels of pupils.”

 

As a community school many of our children walk to school ensuring that oxygen is beginning to flow around our children’s bodies and brains before they arrive, awakening their cognitive functioning, increasing their heart rate (which is essential for improved learning), strengthening their muscles, bones and core stability. From September 2018 a healthy breakfast will be available for all our children. Breakfast is vital fuel to ensure our children perform well academically, socially and emotionally. Children who eat breakfast are alert, able to focus, listen, process and retain information.

 

Sports Premium Funding

Each year we create a strategic plan for the sports premium funding that includes clear and measurable targets for whole school and individual child improvement. This year we have focused on early intervention strategies including occupational therapy equipment and activities, active classroom CPD, outdoor education adventure residential and outdoor learning experiences.

 

Youth Sport Trust

The Youth Sport Trust recommends that pupils aim to engage in 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per day, parallel to PE curriculum and school sports activities. Across EYFS and Key Stage 1 Mill Lane pupils engage in activities such as Write Dance, Shake Shimmy & Shine, OT Activities, Dough Disco, Go Noodle, BBC Super Movers, Play Stage and active classroom activities including lateral movement-based phonological awareness and semantic interventions. Key Stage 2 children are part of our ‘Sports Leaders/Playground Friend’ initiative, designed to ensure all children in the playground are included and supported to practice skills introduced in PE sessions. Kwik Cricket, football, netball, basketball, dodgeball, hoola hoops, balance buckets and skipping ropes are available each break and lunch time for the children to access and hone their skills with the support of KS2 sports leaders. Children are encouraged to compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best and individual targets. Our ‘School Sports Leaders’ are engaged in the planning and development of School Sports and School Games, they are involved in the choosing of extra curricula sports activities and tournaments we choose to attend.

 

Specialist PE Coach

Currently we engage a specialist coach to deliver high quality PE that encompasses and focusses on fundamental movement skills in EYFS, KS1 and KS2; relates to the curriculum across school and focusses on the mastery of physical skills and the values of honesty, teamwork, determination, self-belief, respect and passion. Teaching staff observe the specialist coach’s delivery as part of CPD and monitor children’s progress, identifying next steps and individual targets.

 

Extra Curricula Sport Activities

We offer all our year groups access to extra-curricular activities including football, dodgeball, multi-skills, netball, athletics, gymnastics, basketball and dance. We monitor these activities and change them according to curriculum, pupil interest, current inter-school tournaments and global sporting events such as the Football World Cup, International Cricket Tournaments and the Olympic Games. We particularly identify and encourage disengaged children with fundamental movement skills difficulties, those suffering stress, trauma and displaying low self-esteem to access these clubs and we remove any ‘barriers’ to accessing clubs by providing transport home and PE kits.

 

Stockton School Sport Partnership

We buy into the Stockton Schools Sport Partnership, who believe all young people should be encouraged to lead a healthy, active lifestyle and that it is important for all children to develop a lifelong enthusiasm for sport and physical activity. The aim is to create opportunities for children to develop their physical, social and emotional skills through experiencing high quality PE, competition and

 

sports leadership. Through the partnership we have accessed both competitive and non-goal orientated sport experiences, inter and intra school tournaments including;

  • Y3/Y4 Tag Rugby Skills Day
  • KS1 Multi Skills Festival Day
  • Y3/Y4 & Y5/5 Sports Hall Athletics
  • EYFS Multi Skills Festival Day
  • Y3/4 Skipping Festival
  • Y3/4 Hoopstarz Festival Day
  • Y3/4 Netball Skills
  • Active Schools Festival
  • Y5/6 Netball
  • Dance Festival
  • Y3/4 Racket Skills
  • Y3/4 Quad Kids
  • Y5/Y6 Kwik Crickets
  • Y5/Y6 Athletics Outdoor and SEND Athletics
  • Stickman Adventure Trail
  • Netball League

 

 

Swimming

In alignment with research we send our Year 4 children for three two-week blocks of lessons. The children are taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations. This is at a cost of £2,340 plus £100 for the administration and reporting of school swimming activities to meet Ofsted requirements. We have identified swimming as a target area for improvement and have poverty proofed swimming – a life skill – using top-up sessions for our ARP, Year 5 and Year 6 classes, (2 week sessions for each class). This is also at a cost of £2,340.

 

School Games Days and School Sports Days

Mill Lane achieve Gold Standard again in 2019– 2020. We hold two Sports Days in July. A Foundation Stage and KS1/KS2 Sports Day. The children compete in traditional sack, egg and spoon, relay, obstacle, howler, three-legged, water jug challenge intra sport tournaments in year group gem teams. Parents attend to encourage and support their children and the events culminate in parent, sibling and teacher races – much to the amusement of the children. Sports stickers are given to every child, medals are awarded to each year group for excellent sporting attitude and trophies are given to captains of sports teams.
