 Sports Funding

This page is being updated

The benefits of encouraging children to participate in sport are well documented and at Lythe we use our Sports Funding to meet the Sports Premium Key Outcomes:

1) to give children the opportunity to form good lifelong habits of taking part in physical activity through regular opportunities for quality activities, both as part of curriculum time and during self-directed time such as breaks and lunchtimes, and after school.

2) to use sporting and other physical activities to encourage children to make good choices about behaviour in school, to uphold British Values of mutual respect and individual liberty and improve our SMSC provision by giving children the opportunity to take genuine responsibility.

 3) to improve training and resources so that our present provision is consolidated and sustainability is ensured.

 4) to increase the range of activities offered so that all children have the opportunity to find a physical activity that they enjoy are are able to excel at.

5) to increase participation so that all children have the opportunity to compete widely without the disadvantages sometimes attached to living in a rural location.

 Sports Premium Plan and Evaluation for 2015-16

Item Cost Intended impact and Evaluation
Continued participation in the School Sports Partnership  

Widening participation and overcoming barriers of location by sharing good quality provision with other schools. Continue last year's excellent level of participation in events which was equal to that of large town schools. Continued excellent participation in variety of sports events for all groups of children. This is comparable with much larger schools in the area and we intend to continue this link next year.

CPD for staff to improve quality of curricular PE teaching and provision in after-school clubs; new clubs to be offered (eg gymnastics and hockey Spring 2016); focus on widening participation for KS1 children. Good participation in range of sports by KS1 children. Coaches, with appropriate qualifications for training teachers, have been used this year to upskill staff in new curriculum demands.

Transport to events   Overcome barriers of location and widen participation, including in regional finals. See above notes on excellent participation in events, including further afield.

To be monitored through lesson observations and use of Chris Quigley Milestones to track pupil progress. Higher achieving pupils to be identified and provided for as for other subjects.  Pupils are able to talk about their progress in PE and know what they need to do to improve. We would still like to continue to build teacher confidence in assessing progress in PE and ensureing that the most able make rapid progress.
Level 3 Forest School training for staff    Forest Schools learning to be rolled out to other classes; impact on behaviour as children rely on each other and share skills; contribution to British Values teaching; impact on writing for boys due to improved engagement. Forest Schools is now a part of the curriculum for two classes, contributing to literacy outcomes as well as developing outdoor skills and encouraging outdoor pursuits for all children.

Dance tuition   Increase the range of activities offered and encourage children to take up activity out of school. All children have benefitted from good quality teaching and had the opportunity to perform in public as part of a large community event.
