At Roseberry we believe that Physical Education and sport, when taught well, can help children lead healthy active lifestyles. We aim to ensure that PE not only has a positive effect on our children’s health, but impacts positively on learning and behaviour in the classroom. We believe Physical Education and sport can help children to improve social skills and allow children to enjoy, engage and achieve in alternative learning environments.
Our children’s moto is: “We don’t say we can’t, we always say we will try”
At Roseberry, we pride ourselves on ensuring that we offer our children every opportunity to be the best they can be – especially in competitive sport. It is very important that all our children are able to compete as an individual and as a part of a team, both inside and outside of school.
What is the Sport Premium Funding?
The Primary PE and Sport Premium was launched by the government in April 2013 with the aim of helping primary schools to improve the quality of PE and sport activities on offer for pupils. The national vision is for “All pupils leaving primary school (to be) physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport”. The sum of £450 million was set aside by the Government over a 3 year period (2013-2014/2014-2015/2015-2016) to support this.
While schools are free to decide how to spend the money they must be able to show that spending has led to a “direct and sustained improvement in sporting provision”. Funding is therefore used to develop or add to the PE and sport activities already on offer and to make improvements that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
How should the funding be spent?
The guidance from the DfE and EFA, says that schools should use the funding to:
- Develop or add to the PE and sport activities they already offer
- Make improvements that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
Suggested uses include:
- Hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- Providing teachers with resources and training in PE and sport
- Running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs to support the least active children
- Running sports activities with other schools
As a school we will aspire to offer the following provision:
- To improve the physical education experience for all children in our school.
- To increase physical activity opportunities for our children.
- To enable our children to enjoy a range of school sport outside of the curriculum
- To ensure access for all children to high quality physical education lessons to develop fitness, stamina, health and well-being
- To ensure the development of school sport is linked to wider agendas. This will be achieved by utilising the Sports Premium funding and our school budget to action the following:
- To continue to provide opportunities for children to represent school in sport.
- To provide training as required for teachers and lunchtime supervisors.
- To provide training for teachers in assessment and differentiation in PE through specialised day courses.
- To purchase playtime activity equipment and to maintain / replace equipment.
- To provide transport to link with other schools and take part in competitions and festivals.
- To offer our children the opportunity to participate in sport beyond the curriculum
- To ensure our curriculum offers opportunities for pupils to develop the knowledge and understanding of what makes a healthy lifestyle
- To forge links with the local community to enrich the PE provision within school
- To ensure all our children have the opportunity to take part in festivals and competitions
- To facilitate activities to allow our children to know and apply skills across the disciplines in sport, and can swim at least 25 metres by Year 6.
Roseberry Primary School has a genuine belief in the value of sport, health and exercise. In 2015, the Sainsbury Gold Mark was achieved. The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark.
We have a wide range of sporting activities to enhance and enrich our PE curriculum. Some of these activities are funded through the use of the Sport’s Premium and others are funded through our school budget
All our children access PE lessons in our school or at a recognised local facility including Billingham Forum and the use of facilities at local secondary schools when tournaments take place throughout the year. These activities cover a whole range of disciplines which include movement, fitness, gymnastics, dance, games, athletics and swimming.
Swimming takes place in Year 3 and additional sessions are bought in for children who need further support.
Our provision mapping offers a movement programme to enhance early movement and support for pupils with movement difficulties.
Mr Lowe, our sports coach, works in partnership with a range of sports providers to ensure a balance provision exists throughout our school for all our children.
To further enhance provision a MUGA was developed to support sport throughout the day including at playtimes.
Work with SSP has supported increased participation in competitive sport with schools locally and beyond. CPD has supported the development of teaching staff in Early Years, with netball, high 5 and with the PE modules required in the national curriculum.
Sustainability is important to ensure our school has the capacity to meet the continuing needs of our children. Our school has at least matched the funding of Sports Premium and our financial breakdowns demonstrate our commitment to retaining the skills required within our own staff once the funding is withdrawn.
