What is Sports Premium funding?

Sports Premium Funding

Sports Premium funding is being provided by the government to improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. In 2014, the government announced that schools would continue to receive the sports premium funding until 2020. This year, schools receive a base amount of £16, 000 + £10.00 for each pupil in Years 1-6. The funding will be directly given to primary Principals to improve the quality of PE and sport for all children. However, we have the freedom to choose how we do this!

How will Green Oaks use the funding?

Green Oaks Primary Academy will spend the Sports Premium funding to improve the provision of PE and sport for all of our children across the school. Our priorities are strongly linked with Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT). 

How did we spend the Sport Premium funding 2017-2018?

During the academic year 2017-2018, we bought into our academy partnership of Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT) for £1,400. We are also able to access events, festivals, CPD opportunities through Northampton Schools Sport Partnership (NSSP).

As part of the Academy partnership, we received some in school support, training and CPD opportunities for staff focusing on developing high-quality provision for the PE curriculum from CfBT Education Services, which included training for our newly appointed Play leaders and Teaching Assistants to encourage more children to be active at playtimes and lunchtimes through the provision of a wide range of different games and sports.

We participated in some festivals and competitions, including the annual Academy Sports hall Athletics event for Years 5 and 6 and also the Kings for Gold event for the Kingsthorpe Cluster. We are also arranged intra-school competitions within our own academy, where the children competed against each other in their respective houses, as well as participating in this year’s Sports Relief by raising money with a skipathon and mile run. This is so that all our children feel part of competitive sports and have fun at the same time!  

The school also subsidised sports clubs for children to attend before and after school, which offered them a diverse range of sports to participate in, and our cheerleaders and street dancers even went to compete in the town’s competition organised by Premier Sport.

Additionally, we benefited from staff CPD in all aspects of the curriculum from Years 2 to 6. Teachers worked alongside an experienced sports coach to ensure that our children are learning and developing fundamental skills.

To further enhance the provision of the curriculum being taught in school, we purchased a new scheme of work to allow a more diverse range of sports to be taught to the children, including ‘Invictus’ sports, orienteering and a range of ball sports. Resources and equipment were purchased in order to help enhance and support the delivery of this new provision.

 

Sport Premium funding 2018-2019

This academic year 2018-2019, we have once again bought into our academy partnership of Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT) for £1,400. We are also able to access events, festivals, CPD opportunities through Northampton Schools Sport Partnership (NSSP).

As part of the Academy partnership, we will receive in school support, training and CPD opportunities for staff focusing on developing high-quality provision for the PE curriculum from CfBT Education Services which will support teachers in ensuring lessons are more active through Think and Move.

This academic year, we have entered into a wider number of festivals and competitions across all Key Stages, and look forward to celebrating the children’s achievements. These include KS1 Racket and Multiskills festivals, KS2 Boccia, Badminton and Orienteering competitions as well as endeavouring to participate again in the annual Academy Sports hall Athletics event for Years 5 and 6 and the Kings for Gold event for the Kingsthorpe Cluster. We will also be arranging intra-school competitions within our own academy, where the children can compete against each other in their respective houses, as well as participating in this year’s Sports Relief. This is so that all our children feel part of competitive sports and have fun at the same time!  

Additionally, our teachers will continue to benefit from staff CPD in all aspects of the curriculum from Years 1 to 6. Teachers will be working alongside an experienced sports coach to ensure that our children are learning and developing fundamental skills.

To enhance the provision of the curriculum being taught in school, we have commissioned external providers to come and deliver special workshops to the children across the school, including Yoga, bikeability and later on in the year an Olympic athlete will be visiting the school and supporting the children in participating in a sponsored event to help raise money for the school.
