Background

Since September 2013 all primary schools across England have received a PE and Sport Premium grant. This funding is ring-fenced and must be spent on improving the provision and quality of PE and sport in primary schools, so that pupils develop healthy lifestyles. The government have committed to this funding until 2020, with an increased level of funding continued this year.

Rose Hill Primary School will receive £18,650 for the academic year 2020-21.

 

Impact

Personal health and well-being

Children have a positive attitude towards physical fitness.  The “Daily Mile” is embedded across the school, with staff and pupils running, jogging or walking briskly together for 15 minutes each day.  PE lessons always include activities that develop cardio-vascular fitness.  The Boing! approach to PE minimises listening/instruction time, keeping children engaged and active throughout lessons.  At break times, our spacious playground encourages creative, independent play with a fitness component when the children move through the large area.

After school sport clubs are popular across age ranges and genders.  Over 200 sessions are attended each week, up from around 50 sessions three years ago.  The diversity of clubs has greatly increased, as well as the diversity of the children taking part.  The football club now includes a group of 10-12 girls who attend regularly.  A special “Girls Games” club attracts 20-30 girls each week.  Another 20-30 Key Stage 1 children attend a multi-sports session.  Dodge ball club is capped at 60 children with an even spread from Year 1-6.  All clubs are free of charge; the expansion and increased participation is funded by the Sport Premium.

 

Improved attitudes and behaviour towards learning

Over the past four years there has been a dramatic drop in behaviour related incidents across the school.

Improved attitudes and behaviour towards learning are reflected in improved attainment and achievement across the school.

 

Achievement in weekly PE lessons

Teacher and TA training in Boing! PE has improved standards in PE delivery, particularly in the areas of differentiation and inclusion.  Boing! is a games-based physical literacy scheme developed and currently being trialled by Oxford Brookes and Bath Universities.

Children’s achievement in PE is assessed at two points throughout the year (February and July) .

 

Increased participation in competitive school sport

Competitive sport has developed substantially at Rose Hill – both in number and diversity of sports and number and diversity of participants.  Sports Premium funding is used for transport to a variety of competitions, by public bus, mini-bus, and transport provided by TOA.  The football teams, including the girls’ team, compete in several away games and tournaments each term. Our athletics’ team was particularly successful last year. Children trained by a special Salsa teacher enter a Salsa competition every March.
