PE and Sports Premium

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 Manor Way. 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 on Thursdays. 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 to 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 will be 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. After half term, they will work with specific teachers to co-plan and lead PE sessions. They will also begin to lead after-school clubs, survey the children and teachers to gain a greater understanding of PE across Bannockburn and begin to build links with the wider school community to encourage more sport taking place out of school.

Mini Outdoor Gym Equipment (TBC) KI1

We have received a grant from Greenwich Borough’s Sugar Tax Fund which we will be spending on outdoor gym equipment, 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 does not cover the entire cost, the rest of the money will come from the Sports Premium budget.

Yoga £3040, KI4

The school has been providing yoga sessions for a while now 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.

Proposed spending and activities for the current academic year 2017/2018 will include:

·         Subscription to GSSP (Greenwich School Sports Partnership) £950. They work closely with the Greenwich borough schools to help deliver sporting initiatives in the borough of Greenwich. 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.

·         Developing a sporting behaviour and culture programme across the school which focuses on fair play, access to sport for all abilities and promotes sport in terms of its health benefits.

·         PE staff training opportunities – especially in dance and gymnastics. This could come from our subscription to GSSP.

·         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.

·         Introduce a Paralympic sport to the PE curriculum
