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 2018-2019?

During 2018-2019, we once again bought into our academy partnership of Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT) for £1,600. We also accessed events, festivals, CPD opportunities through Northampton Schools Sport Partnership (NSSP).

As part of the Academy partnership, we received 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.

During 2018-2019 we entered into a wider number of festivals and competitions across all Key Stages, and enjoyed being able to celebrate the children’s achievements. These included; KS1 Racket and Multiskills festivals, KS2 Boccia and Badminton competitions, Years 5 and 6 girls and boys football matches against Woodvale Primary Academy. We also participated again in the annual Interacademy Indoor Athletics event for Years 5 and 6, in which we placed 14th, and the Kings for Gold event for the Kingsthorpe Cluster, in which came first!

Well done to all of the children who took part in all of these events, you made the school proud! #collaboration #engaged

Throughout the year, we also arranged intra-school events within our own academy, where the children competed against each other in their respective houses, as well as participating in this year’s Cancer Research’s Race for Life, in which we raised £617. To enhance the provision of the curriculum taught in school, we also commissioned external providers to come and deliver special workshops to the children across the school. These included Yoga and a visit from Joseph Roebuck, the Olympic athlete, who visited the school and supported the children in participating in a sponsored event to help raise £1506.43 for up and coming athletes and some money for the school.

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

Sport Premium funding 2019-2020

This academic year 2019-2020, we have once again bought into our academy partnership of Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT) for £1,900. 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 differentiation and active questioning.

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. For KS1 children these include: Multi-skills and Athletic festivals, New Age Curling and the Inter-Academy Dance festival, For KS2 these include; Cross Country, Gymnastics, Archery, High 5 netball, Tri-golf and the Inter-Academy Indoor Athletics event for Years 5 and 6. We also hope to participate in, and main the trophy for the Kings for Gold event as part of 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. This is so that all our children feel part of competitive sports and have fun at the same time! 

To continue to enhance the provision of the curriculum taught in school, and promote positive health and well-being through sport, we will be working alongside local community sporting providers to come and deliver special workshops to the children across the school. Our Premier Sport’s Coach, Miss Curtis, will also be working alongside selected children in KS1, to develop their gross motor skills and confidence, and KS2 to develop a more positive experience with sport and to help them gain a better understanding of how this is beneficial to their health.

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 key fundamental skills.
