PE and Sports Premium

Sports Premium Report

In 2013, the Government demonstrated their commitment to improving Sport and PE in schools by announcing the allocation of funding. The drive behind this funding has always been to ensure that schools can make sustainable improvements and also to provide all children with opportunities to develop a lifelong commitment to being healthy and active. This funding has continued since and in 2019/20, Bannockburn Primary School received £22,732. This funding is ring fenced and can only be spent on the provision of Sport and PE in school.

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

Details of our current and planned spending are listed below:

Sports Apprentices Autumn Term 2019                                                       £13925.86                              

Sports Apprentices 2019-20                                                                      £3000 (TBC)

KI2, KI3, KI4 and KI5

Due to the success of our two Sports Apprentices last academic year, we are hoping fund another apprentice using Sports Premium Funding. Once appointed, they will spend time observing and co-leading PE sessions from Nursery through to Year 6, develop a clear understanding of our planning format and sequences, behaviour expectations and resources available and begin to lead lessons. Their role will also encourage all children to try new sports, engage in physical activity at playtimes and develop or maintain a sense of enjoyment when taking part in Sport.

Yoga                                                                                                                          £540 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

Every Friday at 3.30pm at the Manor Way 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.
