Sports Premium Funding

PE and Sport Funding

The government provides additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.  Each school currently receives £16,000, plus £10 per pupil on roll. This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is ring fenced and can only be spent on provision for PE and sport.

 

At Manor Wood Primary School we have identified several areas which we aim to improve and enhance through the use of the Sports Premium funding, in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils in PE, sport and physical activity.

 

Our identified priorities are :

  • Improve staff skills and confidence through training and specialist coaching.
  • Consolidation of the scheme for PE.
  • Continue to increase pupil participation in extra-curricular sports clubs and lunchtime activities.
  • Continue to increase participation in intra and inter-school competitions, particularly the football and netball leagues.
  • Purchase specialist equipment that will improve pupil performance in lessons and at competition level.
  • Continue to extend the outdoor provision which can be accessed at lunch and play times with additional support from the Friends of Manor Wood and Parents.
  • Purchase playtime and lunchtime games. 
  • To further improve the quality of school meals and packed lunches to ensure that pupils have the energy to take a full part in outdoor activities and achieve in all aspects of the curriculum.

 

Sport and exercise are high profile areas at MWPS and every 2 years funds are raised for charitable causes. For example, in summer 2018 a whole school Megathon and Skipathon took place to increase the profile of regular exercise and to provide additional funds for our Story Box. This was a great success, over £1,000 was raised and fun was had by all! 

 

What we do at Manor Wood Primary School:

Physical Education and exercise are highly valued at MWPS and a member of the Senior Leadership Team has specific responsibity for driving it forward in school.

 

In physical education children take part in a wide variety of activities. They learn that being active is fun and that it is important to lead an active lifestyle. At the beginning of their school life children learn and explore basic movement skills through the use of the outdoor area and a variety of resources that are available on a daily basis. Throughout the rest of school children have weekly lessons and clubs. In Years 5 and 6 PE is taught by practitioners with specific skills and in Year 4 swimming is taught to all children.

 

The importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a key focus across the curriculum with particular reference to diet, exercise and social and emotional well-being. At Manor Wood PS we are committed to ensuring that all our children are active, social and resilient individuals who understand how to keep themselves healthy and are confident to take full part in the opportunities available to them.

 

Children across school regularly take part in inter-house and City wide sports competitions / opportunities. In addition, our Manor Wood football team is heavily involved in the local league and our netball team takes part in friendly matches across the year. 

 

Learning Mentors and other appropriate staff make parents / carers aware of holiday sports activities and opportunities at sporting clubs in the local area. These are well attended by Manor Wood families. 

Year 6 children have the opportunity to attend a residential at a local outward bound centre every year.

 

Children in our Foundation Stage Unit have access to a range of physically challenging opportunities in our expansive outdoor space all day, every day. As one of the three prime areas of learning for 3 - 5 year olds, we believe physical development underpins children's general development in many different ways. It is through practising running, jumping climbing, rolling, balancing and spinning that the gross motor skills are developed, that are vital for children to become successful readers, writers and mathematicians in the future. Physical challenge also encourages children to problem solve, access risk and develop resilience and regular physical activity enables children to not only become fit and healthy but demonstrate high levels of well-being and engagement in everything they do. We provide the children with a variety of equipment to ensure that all the children's physical development needs are met. 

 

In 2016 the school adopted a policy of running a mile 3 times a week. A running track was developed on the field and has been marked out on the hard areas for the winter months. In addition, recent developments have included the introduction of Basketball, American Football, Yoga, Dance, Cheer-leading Club and a trip to a local Trampolining Arena and BMX track has taken place. Appropriate sports clothing for staff who coach sports clubs has been sponsored by parents / local businesses. Specialist equipment has also been purchased for children.

 

The impact of the Sports Premium is evaluated in a number of ways including:

  • Analysis of the increased numbers of children engaged in after school clubs and holiday activities. 
  • An increase in the variety of sports opportunities available in school.
  • Pupil voice regarding children’s understanding of the importance of a healthy diet, regular exercise and fitness and their enjoyment of Physical Education in school.
  • Feedback from parents.
  • Implementation of skills gained by teaching staff on specific sporting courses. 

 

Our vision for PE at MWPS and plans for further development

Manor Wood Primary School’s P.E Vision is to enable every child to take part in all forms of Physical Education in and outside of the school. Removing barriers such as cost, opportunity, clothing and equipment will enable each child to access a broad PE curriculum.

Over the last 4 years, we have provided opportunities to allow children to be exposed to a wide range of sports. This includes trips outside of school, hosting specific sports days such as skipping/archery days and provided various after school sport clubs.

The PE Sport fund has been used to remove barriers to children participating in sport. Examples include:

 

  • Paying for Pupil Premium children to attend after school sport clubs with PE Partner. 
  • Paying teachers/staff to deliver free after school clubs for children such as athletics, netball and football.
  • Ensuring all children have the suitable clothing such as pumps, shorts, T- Shirts and sports trainers
  • Ensuring all children have the opportunity to attend sport clubs.
  • CPD training for staff to ensure areas of weakness and lack of confidence are addressed and improved therefore lessons are improved such as dance and gymnastics.

When possible, we have enabled children to experience a wide range of sports using the money available from the fund. This has included visiting Headingley cricket stadium for a tour and taking part in ‘Cricket in the Classroom’, a day visit to a trampoline centre, hosting an archery and skipping day at Manor Wood Primary, also providing free Yoga and cheer-leading after school clubs. The impact of this is to broaden their experiences, improve confidence and increase their enthusiasm to take part regularly in sport.

Four years ago, we introduced the run a ‘Mile a Day’ to improve children’s health and fitness in-line with the government’s concern about child obesity. In the summer we run each day on the grass while in the winter this is completed twice per week. The impact of this initiative was reinforced on sports day with many positive comments made. Also, our cross-country team reached the Yorkshire finals.

 

Parents have commented that their children didn’t initially like mile a day but they have persevered and are really proud of the progress they have made! “They can run faster and feel fitter.” Mrs. Kenny, headteacher.

 

Danyal, Year 5, “I love the mile a day because it is really good for your health and fun. I enjoy the fresh air and it has improved my speed and each time I run I want to get faster. This has made be attend the park run at Roundhay each week!”

 

A breakdown of our 2019/2020 spending included:

Comments and feedback

“Cricket in the classroom was a wonderful day because it gave our less affluent children, who were cricket enthusiast the opportunity to see where their heroes played and to train in the same facilities. After the trip, the children were really engaged and enthusiastic to play cricket whenever possible. As an added bonus, the maths activity in particular was really beneficial to those children who struggled with word problems. A great day!” Miss Ward, Year 5.

 

“PE in KS1 has been fantastic this year. Writing from the perspective of someone who is new to the year group, it has been rewarding to see the rate at which the children have developed. Of specific note, I feel that the children’s independence when getting changed needs to be celebrated, as does their developing sense of responsibility in looking after their PE Kit; a factor which should not be overlooked at this end of the school community. The ‘timetabling’ of physical activity is also a new concept that the children are required to acclimatise to and which they have now done. The social, personal and cognitive side of PE has added additional depth to the work that we are doing with the children. It is rewarding to see children at the age of 5 spotting good examples amongst their peers and recognising this with a thumbs up. The growth mind-set culture that we work hard on developing within the classroom has definitely translated across to indoor and outdoor PE. The children have been introduced to new pieces of equipment and the concept of warming up and cooling down. Time has been focussed and invested in developing team sports and how it is the pupils’ responsibility to follow simple rules so that all contributors can enjoy group games in a fair but competitive way. Last term, the addition of expert coaches from the Rhinos Academy program was well received by the children who grew in confidence with each session. It is not a stretch to acknowledge that within PE all children are universally willing to have a go, keep trying when they find something difficult and showcase a determination to improve, irrespective of their ability level. Indoor PE has benefited from the addition of a twilight staff training session which has given staff the confidence to setup a carousel of athletic stations which ensures the children are kept busy throughout the lesson thus raising heart rates and further developing independence and gross motor skillsets. With outdoor PE we are proud that only one session all year has been abandoned* due to the weather thus reflecting a determination from the whole year group (children and support staff alike) to enjoy PE. This session was replaced with Yoga in the classroom due to a shortage of hall space and was met with enthusiasm from the pupils.“ Mr. Patrick. Year 2.

 

“As a parent, I have always been very impressed with the attitude to sport that the school has. The quality and variety of activities included in PE lessons and after school clubs, such as introducing children to rugby league and cricket through professional coaching and providing opportunities to try sports such as American football and basketball, has given children - including my own - an increased enthusiasm for sport and exercise. I particularly like the approach that all sport can be for everyone - boys and girls - to enjoy. “ Mike Urwin, Parent Governor.

“Manor Wood Primary School are part of the Active Schools SLA. Manor Wood Primary School take part in various competitions/events/festivals throughout the academic year giving ALL children the chance to participate in school sport; not just the talented pupils. Manor Wood have entered numerous Come and Try Festivals, bringing different types of children to these festivals to enable maximum participation. Manor Wood also excel in certain sports and have recently qualified for the West Yorkshire Cross Country Finals. Manor Wood also link with various partners and organisations enabling their pupils to take part in more sports and activities; they have recently linked up with Leeds Beckett University on a Mini Tennis project to do some extra Mini Tennis activities within school, followed by a festival up at Leeds Beckett University. Manor Wood currently have the Silver School Games Mark, and will no doubt be looking at setting their sights on Gold in the future”. Chrisi Nicholson Bennett School Games Organiser - Leeds North East

 

Case study

Breaking down barriers – enhancing P.E at break and lunchtime

An area of improvement we have focused on is improving the children’s sporting experiences at break and lunchtime to enable them to take part in active and skilful physical education. We were aware that many children were just standing in the cold and found break and lunchtimes uninspiring and made excuses not to go outside. We have increased the amount resources focused on areas of interest for children, provided some training and improved their fitness and key skills. The resources change regularly to maintain interest and develop other physical/fitness skills.

Introduction of skipping.

Each break and lunch time, children in KS1 and KS2 are able to access skipping ropes.

 

Emma, Year 3, “Skipping at break and lunchtime is fun because I learn new skills and I get to join in with my friends, also I exercise each day now which makes me feel happy!”

 

Improving the play-pod

We focused on key skills such as hand eye co-ordination (gross motor skills), balance and teamwork. The sport fund enabled me to improve the resources, continue to keep the children engaged and be as active as possible within the hour lunch break

 

Football and basketball referees

To enable children can learn new skills and play in a fair and safe environment, children volunteer to referee football and basketball for both KS1 and KS2. Footballs, whistles, partitions and high visibility jackets were used from the sport fund.

 

Evidence

Each year group records their PE lessons using photos and notes and are placed into an online evidence folder. Also, please view pictures on our website:

 

Forward thinking…

Being active and taking part in regular activity are proven ways to look after our physical and mental health. Primary school children should all be doing at least 1 hour of exercise a day; this equates to over 12,000 steps a day! At Manor wood Primary school, we committed to giving children as many opportunities to be as active as possible. Many of us are already using  “Fitbits” and smart watches to track our movements and heart rate and at Manor Wood we want to keep up with these active technology. Last year, the school invested in some wonderful activity trackers for each year group so they could monitor the steps each class takes per week. We have called it: “Manor Wood’s Steps to Success!”  For now, each week every class battle it out to do the most steps and be the most active and win the “Steps trophy”

We are continually developing this initiative to help children take control of their exercise and become more active. In other exciting new we are also working with some sport science companies who develop this kind of technology and hope to have some new watches in the near future!
