The impact of our funding

We were allocated £18,130 plus £900 carried forward from 2019-2020.

A total of £19,030


£16,226 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 additional 30 minute weekly PE slots to our children in Years 1 and 2 to develop their skills

* Deliver (alongside class teachers) two hours per week of high quality P.E. to our Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 classes. 

* P.E. lessons continued during periods of school closure with key-worker children accessing coaching in smaller groups and video lessons were prepared by our Sports Coach for those children at home.

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

Provide 1:1 gross and fine motor skills training for some of our children with SEND. 

* Ensure that extra-curricular clubs were available for the majority of 2020-2021

* Deliver Cycle Training to our Year 6 children 



* Class teachers have accessed a 3rd 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 continued to increase 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.

* P.E. lessons continued in school and at home during periods of school closure.

* We were able to continue extra-curricular activities (3 times per week) during most of 2020-2021.

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



During 2021 - 2022, we will continue the model above.  The CPD focus will be on planning from the newly written Scheme of Work to enable staff to feel confident to deliver PE without the support of the Sports Coach in 2022 - 2023.  The focus for 2021-2022 will be on team teaching, using the Scheme of Work. 



£900 was planned to be 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.  Unfortunately, this additional swimming programme could not be facilitated.  This money rolls over to 2021-2022.



We were not able to collect data due to school closure. 



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



£1,735 was spent on additional P.E. resources.  In addition to stocking up on the essentials (balls, beanbags etc), money was spent on increasing our gymnastics equipment, in particular lower level pieces.



We now have additional equipment that is particularly useful for EYFS/KS1 pupils. 



We will continue to use Sports Funding to fund resources as funding allows. 


This leaves £1,069 to be rolled forward into 2021-2022.
