Sport Premium

Our vision for P.E. and School Sport

At Ecclesall, we believe that Physical Education experienced in a safe and supportive environment plays a vital part in the development of the whole child. We provide opportunities for children to build their physical co-ordination, fitness and social skills through a balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities. We aim to promote the pleasure and enjoyment that can derive from physical activity, to enable children to lead a healthy, active lifestyle for the rest of their lives.

Extra-curricular opportunities

A varied range of lunch-time and after school clubs is provided:

Sport Premium Funding

From September 2013, the government has been providing additional funding to improve the provision of PE and Sport in primary schools. Schools receive £8,000 per academic year plus £5 per child. Ecclesall received a total of £9795 for the academic year 2013-14 and the same amount for 2014-15.

 

Plans for 2015-16

Here is an outline of how we plan to spend our 2015-16 Sport Premium allocation:

  • Through our subscription to the Points Learning Network, we employ an experienced sports development coach, Richard Mills, to work alongside class teachers to develop high quality PE, with a focus on games (multi-skills, indoor athletics, badminton, tri-golf and kwik cricket). Each block of teaching culminates in a competition / festival in which the whole year group participates.
  • Richard will also run lunch-time clubs which complement the games skills children are learning in their PE lessons.
  • Training will be provided for 12 Y6 children to become Sports Leaders. These leaders will then organise lunch-time games, and help to plan and run sports competitions and festivals.
  • We will employ a specialist gymnastics teacher, Emmalouise Bennett, to work alongside the class teacher in PE lessons. Throughout the year, Emmalouise will work with every class in school.
  • We will identify children who currently do not take part in any sport or organised physical activity outside PE lessons and set up appropriate initiatives, for example a Change4Life club.
  • We will continue to involve as many children as possible in inter-school competitions, providing transport where necessary.
