Sport Premium

Castle Carrock School Primary PE and Sports Premium Report 2020 – 2021

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 ensure consistency in approach to PE and School Sports as well as developing staff confidence.
  2. We ensured our PE curriculum developed a healthy lifestyle.
  3. We developed PE and Sports provision to give as much opportunity to our children to take part in sports as possible during the pandemic.
  4. We ensured our environment is fit for purpose and equipment encourages safe and adventurous play.

In 2020 – 2021 we:

  • Employed specialist coaches to provide high quality PE teaching and enhance teachers’ professional development in a wide range of sports including gymnastics, football, cricket.
  • Ensured that we had appropriate travel for swimming provision –  aiming for  100% of children pass the KS2 swimming standard. For the 2020-2021 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.
  • Develop and enhance our curriculum through experiences
  • 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!
  • Developing staff – including working professional coaches working alongside staff to develop their skills.
