Sports Premium

Sport Premium Overview

At Sharrow School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in helping children lead healthy and active lives, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

Sport Premium Grant

Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January of each year.

Total amount of Sport Premium Grant received by Sharrow School 2017/8 = £19 400

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

At Sharrow School we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport.

Evaluation of spending for 2016 – 17

Physical Education – amount spent = £4 800

• All teaching staff had the opportunity to work alongside the Sports Specialists to improve the quality of their PE lessons.
• The training was bespoke to individual members of staff, their strengths and areas for development with a focus on developing children’s core skills.
• Observations of their lessons indicated that the quality of teaching in PE had improved.
• A scheme has been developed that outlines the key skills children should developed throughout school from nursery to Y6.

Healthy Active Lifestyles – amount spent £3 700

• A range of clubs were run before school, at lunchtime and after school which were well attended.
• 30 children access the Breakfast sports club each day including children from FS2 to Year 6. In all over 70 children attended the breakfast club each week.
• At lunchtimes, sports clubs were run for children from different year groups each day, with 20 children engaging in the activities each day. In addition, staff ran organised games outside, encouraging physical activity.
• Feedback from lunchtime staff indicated that children were engaging in increased levels of physical activities.
• At least 6 sports clubs ran after school for different ages of children from KS1 and KS2 with up to 25 children attending each club.
• A Family sports club was set up for Y5 children and their parents. They engaged in a range of activities including cricket, football, rounders, basketball and Judo. Some of the activities took place in school, others at local venues such as Umix. The final event was a seven mile walk (Sheffield Round walk) for parents and children.
• The enthusiasm of children to take part was demonstrated by the speed with which they returned their permission slips when letters were sent home offering new activities.
• 90 children joined in with the sports day held at the English Institute of Sport.
• The school held its second Sports Day, utilizing the field in the park outside school. All children from nursery to Y6 took part. The children were divided into 5 different teams. Each team consisted of children from each year group. Every child took part in at least one field event and one track event. This was a very successful event which was attended by many parents/carers and friends.

Competitive School Sport – amount spent £1 200

• As a result of their involvement in the school sports clubs many children were keen to take part in competitions and festivals.
• The school took part in 13 different competitions and festivals during the academic year covering a range of sports including Kwik Cricket, football, sports Hall Athletics and basketball. A group of children from KS2 took part in an Inclusive Sports Event aimed at children with SEND.

The school was successful in gaining the Silver School Games Mark.
