Sport Premium

Castle Carrock School Primary PE and Sports Premium Report 2017 – 18

The Sports Premium grant is ring-fenced and must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of pupils aged 5-11 years old, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.

Within our school development plan we had highlighted several areas to focus on:

  1. We developed staff CPD to give confidence and develop key skills in the delivery of PE and School Sports.
  2. We ensured our PE curriculum developed a healthy lifestyle.
  3. We developed PE and Sports provision so that all children access activities they enjoy and develop their skills.
  4. We participated in competitive sports provision within the local area.
  5. We ensured our environment is fit for purpose and equipment encourages safe and adventurous play.

In 2017-18 we received £16,680 – we used this money in a variety of ways:

  • Employ specialist coaches to provide high quality PE teaching and enhance teachers’ professional development in a wide range of sports including gymnastics, football, cricket, cheerleading and dance.
  • To purchase new equipment –including allowing the children Playground Leaders to develop their own wishlist connected to playtime activities which they then lead.
  • Travel for swimming provision –  ensuring that 100% of children pass the KS2 swimming standard. For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, 100% of our Year 6 pupils have reached the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. (They are all able to swim using a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations).
  • Inclusion in the William Howard ‘Primary Sports and Outreach Programs’ to ensure that every child has the chance to be involved in sport, and participate in School Games.
  • Transport to sporting events to enable the children to take part in events with other schools, such as the Talkin Tarn Cross Country Race where all KS2 children participated.
  • Extra curricular activities which show how our school has a fantastic sporting ethos – our running club is always busy and we have great success with runners – particularly seen last year with gold medal winners for our younger children and a Y6 child coming third at the cross country.
  • Develop and enhance our curriculum through experiences such as bouldering, cheerleading and cycling.
  • Sports Festivals that our children can attend free of charge – giving them the chance to meet future classmates, share ideas and learn from each other. These festivals are always over subscribed!
