PE/Sport Grant and Provision

 

Miss Michaela Gardner is our PE coordinator and works closely with the Senior Leadership Team to decide on the priorities for the most effective use of our Sports Grant: 

 

2016/17 Sports Grant :

 

Our Sports Grant for 2016/17 is:                                                  £8615 

NB:  £8,615 = based on £8,000 plus £5 per pupil - based on 123 pupils

In 2016/17, we plan to allocate the money in the following ways:

 

*  School paying a percentage towards the cost of sports competitions for pupils outside of school (ie - Football/Netball league subscription payments for children as required)

 

*  School paying a percentage towards the cost of sports clubs for pupils outside of school (ie - Flames Netball Club,  £120 to date)

 

*  Specialist (CSS PE teacher, one AM per week) coaching and multisport activities for Key Stage 2 children, to improve PE training for existing staff (by staff observing and learning from/working with PE specialist on a rota).

 

*  Audit school PE equipment and buy equipment for use by all pupils in school (PD Day focus, Spring 2017)

 

*  Cover the cost of travel to the various tournaments that the school's sports teams take part in during the year. (Mean average cost of £100 per trip x minimum of 10 trips = £1000)

 

*  Buy into additional local High School Sports offer, to enable us to play against local primary schools in competitive tournaments throughout the year. (£1700 annual cost, approximately 15 tournaments offered)

 

*  All children in school to have the opportunity to take part in additional sporting activities at Church Stretton (travel costs, £100 approximately per visit x estimated 8 visits = £800)

 

IMPACT ON PARTICIPATION AND ATTAINMENT 2016/17?

 

PE and SPORT:  Our school netball team have once again been successful in 2016, winning the local netball league and with more pupils than ever attending netball training (make and female).  The overall increase in participation in school sports noted has increased yet further, with the development of even stronger links with the PE department of Church Stretton High School.  Several sports events were organised at Church Stretton, including attendance at a Tag Rugby Tournament against older pupils.  Attendance at sports clubs increased in school, with a tennis and rounders club that were well attended after school, as well as a successful school netball team.  In Autumn 2017, a school football team and participation in a local league will begin again, following recruitment of a new teacher who will also coach this team.

Sustainability: 

Our PE provision includes a PE specialist teacher from CSS teaching in Stokesay to deliver high quality sports skills teaching every Wednesday morning,  to enable existing non-specialist  staff to upskill themselves in terms of PE methodology/training to make this improvement sustainable (by observing the PE specialist as required, ie - for areas of training need, such as gymnastics/dance).  In 2017/18, the former head of Church Stretton School PE Department (Tom Ward) will take over this role, further strengthening this area in Stokesay.

In Autumn 2015, this has led to increased interest and attendance from pupils in a new sports based after school club, 'Cross Country Club', as well as a successful School Netball team>

 

PE: 

Our PE provision has been strengthened further from September 2015, with a PE specialist teacher from CSS teaching in Stokesay to deliver high quality sports skills teaching every Wednesday morning,  to enable existing non-specialist  staff to upskill themselves in terms of PE methodology/training to make this improvement sustainable (by observing the PE specialist as required, ie - for areas of training need, such as gymnastics/dance).  In this way, we are making the most of our partner academy school's very strong secondary PE department.
