CUMBERLAND INFANT SCHOOL

P.E and Sport Grant 2015/2016

For the year 2015/16 the school received a grant of £8556 P.E and Sport.

The school was very pleased to receive this extra funding as we believe sport plays a vital role in life by not just supporting a healthy lifestyle but also in promoting the social skills of team work and collaboration. We feel sport also encourages children to do their best (persevere), develop a desire to improve and where relevant win (achieve), but most of all as a means of enjoyment that will enhance their life. It will hopefully give them an interest that will last a lifetime.

Outcomes/impact

Year R launched their ‘Let’s Get Fit’ topic with a visit from Kidzfit. This session taught the children how to use hoops, ropes and running to keep fit. The trainer talked to them about the need to eat the right amount of food, get enough rest and keep hydrated.

The Year 1 children had a session with an outside provider to learn circus skills. Following this session we purchased some of the equipment they had used so that the children had the opportunity to apply their circus skills learned.

Following an audit of equipment the children had to use during PE lessons and at Play and Lunch times we purchased a range of equipment for them to use during these sessions – these included hoops, balls and bean bags

All children from Year R to Year Two took part in the following sports:

Tennis

Judo

Archery

Fencing

Dance

Football

Feedback from the children and their parents was that they had enjoyed these sessions and in light of this we have decided to run this again at the same time next year. Following feedback we have also decided to split our After School Football sessions into YR and Year 1 and more confident Year 1 footballers and Year 2. This will mean that the sessions will have smaller groups, but more children will have access to the sessions.

Development of Year R outside   physical provision

£95 balance bikes

All children to have access to a greater range of sporting/physical activities.

 

Development of the range and provision of alternative sporting activities.

 

Children who cannot ride a bike or a tricycle had the opportunity to develop their balance ability, improving their confidence and general gross motor skills.

Development of teacher knowledge and skill in Gymnastics.

£167- supply cover

 

 

To improve children’s fundamental skills and able to apply these skills across the P.E curriculum and provision

 

One teacher attended the one day Real Gymnastic course and then ran a coaching session for teaching staff on how to use Real Gymnastics alongside teaching Real P.E.

This improved the teacher’s knowledge and skills, so that they were more confident in teaching these aspects of the P.E. curriculum.

 

 

Total cost spent: £6003

 

 

 

The underspend of £2553 was earmarked for the Sports Week as we had anticipated that sports planned and the providers we wanted to use would be more expensive – some of it was free through our Silver Level SLA with Priory School. We will therefore be using it in 16/17 to pay for more providers to come into school and CPD for staff.

At Cumberland Infant school the staff‘s knowledge, skills and interest in P.E has been stimulated further by the possibilities presented by the PE and Sport Funding. This has had an impact on the children’s enthusiasm, engagement and desire to improve their skills and involvement in this sporting activities in and outside of school. They certainly have had many more sporting opportunities this year and this has improved their fundamental skills. Continuing the funding would be welcome, not least in terms of sustaining the changes made and developing them even further. If the funding ceased to be available we know that the professional development that the teaching staff have had will enable them to ensure that the children receive good teaching of fundamental skills and we would use money from our general budget to maintain our partnership with the Priory Sports Team.
