Primary School Sport Funding
P.E.and Sport Premium Funding
A grant of £8,825 was received for the P.E. and Sport Premium Funding (April 2016 to April 2017 financial year).
The projected spend on P.E. and sport is as follows:
- £1,000 for the London P.E. School Sport Network. This is the body the school is affiliated to in order to participate in tournaments and competitions.
- £4,470 to The Movement factory. This organisation runs four after school dance clubs per week for years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
- £2,850 to Progressive Sports London who lead dance and gym classes one afternoon a week for two classes. The classes alternate every half term so every child experiences a course of dance and a course of gym over the school year. The specialist also contributes to the professional development of St. Joseph`s staff.
- £950 to the football coach who trains the year 2 children after school once a week.
- £500 on resources (including for the infants playground so the children are active during play time).
- £200 on transport for going to and from tournaments, competitions etc.
Total: £9,970 projected spend from April 2016 to April 2017
We believe this is the best way to spend the funding to ensure as many children as possible have the opportunity to engage in physical activities and gain access to a qualified, skilled sports coach.
We plan to run a programme to encourage children to make faster progress in physical education in the summer term.
Impact of PE and Sport Premium on St. Joseph`s RC Primary School
PE has improved greatly St. Joseph`s since having the PE and Sport Premium. We now have a specialist who teaches dance and gym from year 1 to year 6 and supports teachers in their professional development in this area. The children have access to high quality teaching in all areas of P.E. The P.E. lessons are planned for each year group to ensure that they progress and learn skills appropriate to their age and ability.
The Sport Premium money has enabled us to offer more sporting opportunities and hence, sport participation in clubs has increased in recent years. As a school we run clubs after school and at lunchtimes. Our aim is to have each child in the school participate in at least two hours of physical activity/education every week and also to make extra physical education available to every child who wants it through sports clubs and active playtime sessions.
The difference the P.E. and Sport Premium funding has had on the pupils is highly visible not only in the numbers attending clubs but also in their achievements.
The list of achievements in recent years includes:

Children at St. Joseph`s school make outstanding progress in P.E. We have a wide and diverse P.E. curriculum giving the children lots of different experiences within P.E. and sport and making it part of their enjoyable, healthy lifestyle.
We look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breath of P.E. and sporting provision, including increasing participation in P.E. and sport so all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
