Are you looking for a new part-time role? A fab opportunity has opened up at Scholars' Education Trust, based at Samuel RyderAcademy! https://t.co/2hKq0ed06Q

Sports Premium

The Department for Education is doubling the funding that primary schools receive to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision from £160 million to £320 million a year. The PE and Sport Premium is part of a series of programmes led by the department to improve healthy lifestyles among pupils and tackle childhood obesity.

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole - school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

 

How much PE and sport premium funding has Samuel Ryder Academy received for this financial year?

The funding is allocated to each school and is dependent upon their number of pupils. Samuel Ryder Academy received £8,880 for the 18/19 financial year and will receive further funding next year, based on our increased numbers in 18/19. The school sport funding is further supplemented by additional funds from the schools general budget, to support the areas below.

Schools are to determine their own spending, looking to improve the quality and breadth of PE / sport, looking to increase participation, encourage healthy lifestyles and improve the quality of provision.

The outline of our aims is detailed below:

  1. Ensuring high quality teaching for all, through the use of our specialist PE teachers
  2. Increase the number and variety of sports clubs available to students. Students enrolled in the Primary phase are entitled to free, before- school activity clubs each day, 2 specialist PE lessons and specialist swimming lessons.

How has the funding been used to enhance the quality of PE and sport at Samuel Ryder academy?

Samuel Ryder Academy offers a unique opportunity for students in our Primary phase to receive high quality teaching from specialist PE teachers, from the PE department. Every child receives 2 PE lessons per week and one swimming lesson, delivered by our PE staff. This is a unique opportunity that is enabled through the use of the sports premium funding. In addition to these curriculum lessons, the Primary students have access to a wide range of extra-curricular clubs each morning which are again provided by our specialist PE staff. These clubs include; football, tag rugby, netball, gymnastics, dance, swimming, cricket, athletics and rounders. The aim is to use this funding to provide opportunities and develop talent to create a sporting legacy at the school.

During their PE lessons our students are able to participate in a range of activities including: football, tag rugby, gymnastics, dance, games, athletics, swimming, jungle gym fitness. Due to the unique set up of the school these lessons take place in our state of the art facilities that include a purpose build sports hall, swimming pool and gymnasium containing specialist gym equipment.

The primary students at Samuel Ryder Academy also have benefitted from the government's funding, through entry to various competitions including; football matches with local primary schools, regular swimming galas and a district mini triathlon hosted at Samuel Ryder Academy. Students have also benefitted from our Sports Leaders programme, where students from our secondary have organised and delivered various house competitions throughout the year, including athletics and football.

What has the impact been so far on participation and attainment?

Student participation in extra-curricular clubs has remained high this year, with at least 80% of KS1 and KS2 students attending extra-curricular clubs. Student progress and attainment has also increased, as a result of the provision put in place due to the additional funding available. By the end of Year 3, at least 90% of students in our primary were able to swim competently without the use of flotation aids. Some students have already exceeded KS2 expectations in activities such as swimming, athletics, gymnastics and dance due to the specialist teaching they have received from PE staff. We also have established our primary sports teams, in football, netball, rounders and athletics, ensuring that they have had opportunities to compete against local schools, on a regular basis as well as district competitions.

Professional Development:

Some of the funding has also been used for the professional development of our teachers, to ensure that all staff have the best training in order to deliver high quality provision to our students. So far funding has been used to run:

  • Lifesaving training for our staff, through Royal Lifesaving Society.
  • Coaching for staff and TA’s in teaching swimming.
  • Ongoing CPD for TA’s and primary teachers, in delivering PE and sport in a variety of activities.

PE Staff:

Specialist PE teachers are used to deliver weekly PE lessons and daily clubs to all year groups, including additional swimming lessons each week, from Reception upwards. Our staff offer a wide range of expertise, across a variety of activities meaning all students receive the best quality provision during PE lessons and clubs.

We also have  a Primary PE co-ordinator in place to co-ordinate PE and sports provision across the primary phase. They work closely with the Academy’s Head of PE, to plan a full and varied curriculum and provide a range of extra-curricular activities, before and after school.

Resources:

We have also been able to support our teaching and clubs at Samuel Ryder Academy, through the purchasing of new equipment. This includes: specialist swimming equipment and resources, floats, swimming aids and rescue equipment. We have purchased new tag rugby equipment, footballs and netballs, a Year 3 football kit, 7-a-side goals and created a football pitch, exclusively for primary use.

The future:

As our Primary phase continues to grow over the next few years, we will be eligible for more funding, which we intend to use to continue to improve PE and sport provision at Samuel Ryder Academy. Our aim is to continue to offer our unique experience to the students at our school, giving them more opportunities to participate in competitions, extra-curricular clubs and specialist high quality coaching and teaching. We also intend to extend our Sports Leaders programme and establish a junior sports leaders programme, to develop our primary leaders of tomorrow so they can help run additional clubs within the primary phase.
