Sports Premium Guidance

Pallister Park Primary School’s Sports Premium Guidance

Schools have been told that they should evaluate and consider the impact of the Primary Sports Funding on pupil’s lifestyles and physical well-being by taking account of the following factors:

  • The increase in participation rates in such activities as games, dance gymnastics, swimming and athletics.
  • The increase and success in competitive school sports.
  • How much more inclusive the physical education curriculum has become.
  • The growth in the range of traditional and alternative sporting activities.
  • The improvement in partnership work on physical education with other schools and other local partners.
  • Links with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills.
  • The greater awareness amongst pupils about the dangers of obesity, smoking and other activities that undermine pupils’ health.

Pallister Park have determined to use their additional funding on top of what they already spend on the PE curriculum, in the following ways:

  • Paying the most effective teachers an enhanced allowance to lead improvements in PE and school sport and provide staff training on how to teach PE well.
  • Employing specialist PE teachers or qualified coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE.
  • Employing a specialist teacher or providing professional development for staff to lead after -school sports clubs for disabled pupils and those with special educational needs.
  • Providing cover staff to release teachers for professional development in PE and sport.
  • Procuring quality-assured professional training for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE and sport.
  • Paying staff or external sports coaches to run competitions or to increase pupil’s participation in national school games competitions.
  • Quality assuring the work of sports coaches and instructors employed to coach in PE lessons and after – school sports clubs.
  • Buying into existing local sports networks such as school sport partnerships or community sport’s coaching initiatives.
  • Pooling funding with other local schools to employ a specialist teacher to train existing teachers and teach PE across a cluster of schools.
  • Pooling funding to employ qualified teaching assistants to provide regular sports tournaments, festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages.
  • Employing expert advice to evaluate the school’s current strengths and weaknesses in PE and sport, and implement plans for improvement.
  • Providing places for pupils in after-school sport clubs.
  • Engaging the least active pupils in after school activities, for example Change4Life after school clubs.
  • Employing a local coach to provide weekly after-school sport on the school site and at the local club in the evenings, weekends and school holidays.
  • Forging links with PE teachers in local secondary schools to help primary staff improve their PE and sports provision.
  • Establishing strong, sustainable partnerships with local community sports clubs where no links have been made in the past.
  • Pay for pool hire and instruction to provide additional swimming lessons for those pupils unable to swim by the end of year 6.
  • Provide extra, additional activities such as outdoor and adventurous activities.
  • Introduce new initiatives such as basic movement skills in the Early Years Foundation Stage, or developing young sports leaders in KS2.
  • Purchasing specialist equipment and teaching resources to develop a non-traditional activity or a new sport.
