The impact of our funding

Our allocation for 2018 - 2019 was £18,130

We achieved the GOLD School Games Award for the first time :-)

£15,437.31 was spent on employing our own Sports Coach.  His core contract has been for 21 1/4 hours which has been used to:

* Deliver (alongside class teachers) one hour per week of high quality P.E. to our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 groups.  

* Deliver (alongside class teachers) two hours per week of high quality P.E. to our Year 3, Year 4, Year and Year 6 classes. 

* Provide structured sporting opportunities at lunchtimes including: table tennis, football, hockey, basketball and the daily mile for Years 1, 2 and 6.

* Increase the number of extra curricular activities, focusing particularly (but not exclusively) on Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4.

* Enable us to enter two teams in many of the local sporting competitions. 

* Deliver Cycle Training to our Year 6 children 



* Class teachers have accessed a year of high quality CPD in PE teaching focusing on developing their skills in teaching specific sports and fundamental fitness skills.

* Activity levels at lunchtimes have increased with a larger group of children engaging in sporting activities.  This has also been provided during indoor breaks using activities such as table tennis. 

* Activity levels in PE lessons (where we have large class sizes of 36) have increased.  With two adults teaching each class, we have been able to split classes into smaller groups or focus on more effectively supporting those children who have struggled.

* The number of children attending extra-curricular sporting activities, particularly in Years 3 and 4, has significantly increased. 

* The percentage of children and the number of times they have been able to represent our school in local and regional sporting competitions has increased. 

* All of our Year 6 pupils accessed level 1 and level 2 cycle training. 



During 2019 - 2020, we will continue the model above.  The CPD element for staff is particularly important in what could be the final year of Sports Funding.  



£900 was spent on providing additional swimming coaching for those children in Years 4, 5 and 6 who had not previously met the end of KS2 swimming expectations.  The funding enabled 5 hours of intensive tuition for a small group of 9 pupils.  6 of these pupils attained the end of KS2 expectation of swimming competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. 



* 100% of Y6 pupils can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.

* 100% of Y6 pupils can perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations 

* 94% of Y6 pupils can use a range of strokes effectively 



We will continue to use Sports Funding to fund this additional swimming instruction as long as the funding is available. 



£642.50 was spent to increase the levels of participation in local and regional competitions.   This included hosting the annual Bury North Sports Festival in July.  


Impact: 100% of our children in Year 6 represented our school in at least one local/regional competition.    A small group of Year 2 pupils were also invited to take part in the Greater Manchester Summer Games in recognition of our commitment to local sporting competition.  


Sustainability:  We are committed to increasing levels of participation in competition both inside and outside of school.  We will continue to prioritise this as funding allows. 



£599.95 was spent on providing training and insurance for our Sports Coach to deliver a Cycle Training package.


Impact:  All of our Year 6 pupils accessed Level 1 and Level 2 cycle training. 


Sustainability: Building on 2018-2019, we have planned to deliver Level 1 training to all of Years 5 and 6 and Level 2 training to Year 6. 



£407 was spent on our Annual Healthy Week which is held at the end of the Summer term.  The aim of our week is to provide a wide range of sporting and health-related activities across the school.  This year the funding enabled:
* Year 3 children to visit Holcombe Brook Tennis Club for a morning of tennis coaching

* Year 5 and Year 6 children to visit Bury Athletics Club for an afternoon of competing in a variety of athletic challenges at the track


Impact: Levels of enjoyment reported by the children were high.  In particular, a number of Y5/Y6 children expressed an interest in joining the athletics club. 


Sustainability:  We are committed to continuing our Annual Healthy Week and funding opportunities for children to experience new sports. 



£253.19 was spent on replacing resources


Impact:  We continue to retain high quality resources for PE lessons and sporting activities.


Sustainability:  Constantly renewing resources enables us to continue to provide high quality learning experiences for our children.  We will continue to replace resources as funds allow.
