PE and Sports Premium

Sports Premium Report

Sports Premium Report

There are 5 key indicators (KI) that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  2. the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. increased participation in competitive sport


PE Coaching (Judy Buckley and Joe Meade from St. Paul’s Academy) £14,300, KI3 and KI4

Judy Buckley continues to lead PE sessions on a Wednesday at Bannockburn Manorway site. She has become a valued member of our staff and has developed the teaching skills of our teachers in the years she has worked with us. In addition to Judy, we are pleased to welcome Joe Meade who has been working with our more able KS2 students every Thursday. Joe has focused on football skills so far, recently taking a team of Yr5/6’s to a tournament. The children thoroughly enjoyed the competition and feedback included, “We looked great in our kit.”, “I felt like a real football player!” and, “When can we try again?”. Joe also groups together the students in to their house teams which creates a further sense of community within the school and will lead on Bannockburn’s first Inter-House football tournament.

Sports Apprentices (Joe O’Reagan and Jordan Putman) £6503, KI2, KI3, KI4 and KI5

We are pleased to welcome Joe and Jordan to Bannockburn for the next 15 months. We are funding one of the apprentices using Sports Premium Funding. During Autumn Term 1, they have spent time observing and co-leading PE sessions from Nursery through to Year 6. They now have a clear understanding of our planning format, behaviour expectations and resources available. Since October 2018 they have been working with specific teachers to co-plan and lead PE sessions. They have also started to lead after-school clubs, survey the children and teachers to gain a greater understanding of PE across Bannockburn and began to build links with the wider school community to encourage more sport taking place out of school.

Mini Outdoor Gym Equipment £11,031 KI1

We have received a grant from Greenwich Borough’s Sugar Tax Fund which was spent on outdoor gym equipment for the Manorway site, similar to the equipment seen in parks. The children will be able to use the equipment in various ways, depending on their age and ability. As the funding did not cover the entire cost, the rest of the money came from the Sports Premium budget.

Yoga £3040, KI4

The school has been providing yoga sessions and the benefits for children are identified and monitored for impact. These include: calming behaviour; meditation; focusing and concentrating the mind and finally to understand how their bodies work and react to different situations.

Swimming Top Up £1384, KI3  Year 6 swimming lessons for children unable to swim 25 metres.

Spring Term 2019 spending

Orienteering package KI4

We have ordered a package from Josh Jenner Orienteering Coach and Manager to come to the Manorway site and map out a permanent orienteering package with permanent plaques, lesson plans, games activities and the option of using the various courses on an app which is nearly finished being developed. £1296


Bannockburn Bootcamp KI1

Every Friday at 3.30pm at the Manorway site, families are being invited to come and enjoy a ten minute high intensity work out. The sports apprentices, Joe and Jordan, lead these sessions. We have had an average of 15 children along with their families attend. The children are entered into a prize draw to win a family ticket to Gravity trampoline park. £50.

Subscription to GSSP (Greenwich School Sports Partnership)

We have subscribed to GSSP. They work closely with Greenwich borough schools to help deliver various sporting initiatives within the borough. Using the expertise of Greenwich sports coordinators, they provide the borough with opportunities that may have otherwise been out of reach. Their ultimate aim is to coordinate events with every school in the borough to help foster a community amongst both staff and pupils in Greenwich. £950

Developing a sporting behaviour and culture programme across the school which focuses on fair play, access to sport for all abilities and promote sport in terms of its health benefits. We have now purchased two outdoor freestanding boards to display competitions, house points earned during playtime challenges, photos of the children enjoying the astro-turf and mini gym, local areas families can use for sport.

PE Staff Training Opportunities

These training opportunities come from our subscription to GSSP. Staff members have already attended football, badminton and dance training. We are in the process of developing links with London Marathon Events, who are rolling out a new programme based on getting schools more involved with the Daily Mile. We will be receiving places to the Westminster Mile, Big Mile, Big Half, Ride London and London Marathon. This will involve pupils, parents/carers and staff. The school is also introducing paralympic sports to the PE curriculum, and goalball and boccia equipment have already been ordered.
