Spring Bank Primary School

PE and Sports Premium

Spring Bank Primary Sports Premium Plan 2020 -21  

PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of Spring Bank Primary School We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people and through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others.

Covid-19 has had an impact on our ability to provide high quality external PE provision for our children via sports partners and competitions. We have also not been able to provide external sports clubs from September 2020 but intend to reassess this in January 2021 and organise clubs for individual year groups.

At Spring Bank we have developed a provision plan to ensure this funding is invested (rather than ‘spent’) to maximise the long term impact of our PE provision for pupils and staff. The funding is invested in various ways and the impact of these initiatives is closely monitored through assessment of children’s skills, something our teachers assess at the end of each term. We also gather staff and pupil feedback and track uptake of clubs to ensure very good provision. Our PE coordinator has written an Improvement Plan for PE with a focus on the assessment and progress of children in PE.

Following our audit of the impact of our Sports Premium in 2019 – 2020 (see summary at the bottom of this document) we plan to use our Sports Premium monies in 2020 – 2021 in the following ways:

Audit and invest in PE equipment:

  • PE coordinator assess the condition and quantity of PE equipment.
  • Purchase replacement equipment.
  • Purchase new equipment to enhance the delivery of PE.

Ensure children have access to a wide variety of sports experiences through:

  • Continuing to provide free after school sports clubs with after school club co-ordinator support in dance, football, cricket, gymnastics, cross country running, netball and basketball. (Subject to Risk Assessments and Covid-19 restrictions)
  • Continue our successful Health and Sports week with visiting coaches. (Subject to Risk Assessments and Covid-19 restrictions)
  • Purchase of coaching sessions at Yorkshire Indoor Cricket School for KS2 children.
  • Bikeability coaching.
  • Collaboration with Leeds Beckett University – volunteers coming in to run after school clubs. (Assess after February 2021)
  • Provide equipment to encourage active games at break time.
  • Continue a weekly ‘Move-a-Mile’ for classes across school. (Running competition online)

Maintain and improve good outcomes of PE teaching across school by:

  • Release of PE co-ordinator to observe PE lessons, identifying strengths and areas for improvement and survey of staff skills.
  • Staff training provided to support identified areas for improvement.
  • Provide release time for PE co-ordinator to plan Health and Sports week, oversee daily physical education, co-ordinate with coaches and students at universities to provide after school clubs in different sports, plan and oversee school teams taking part in a variety of sports competitions.
  • Continue new swimming assessments for Y4 and payment for an additional swimming coach at the poolside. To also produce a report in July 2020 (see report below) on the progress of children in Year 6 with their swimming and their achievements. (Swimming lessons have not begun for the current Year 4 class but they are scheduled to begin again in January 2021).
  • The possibility of sending Year 5 for swimming lessons is being assessed due to the class not completing a full academic year of lessons.

Impact of Sports Premium Grant from 2019/2020

The impact of the Sports Premium Grant was positive for the school again up until March 2020. New equipment was bought for several different sports including basketball, tennis, football, athletics and a badminton set to offer a different racket based sport into the PE curriculum. Pupils were able to access a variety of sports through after school clubs. Bikeability training and the sessions at the Headingley Indoor Cricket School had positive outcomes for the pupils in Year 5 and 6. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, Health and Sports Week did not commence which resulted in no dance competition or Sports Day. However, from September 2019 to March 2020 the school entered:

  • Leeds Key Steps Gymnastics Competition (Year 5 and Year 6 teams)
  • Leeds United Foundation 6-a-side Football Tournament (Year 6 Team)
  • Leeds United Foundation 6-a-side Football Tournament (Girls Team)
  • Leeds Schools Athletics Association Cross Country Events: (Lower Key Stage 2, Upper Key Stage 2 Boys and Girls)
