PE and school sport play a very important part in the life of Goldthorpe. We believe that PE and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.
We are therefore delighted to be able to use sports premium funding for the years 2019/20 of £20,313
• To fund a PE Specialist Coaching Team
• To increase participation levels in inter/intra competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence
• To ensure the school understands and values the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as tool for whole school improvement
• To enable more girls to build their confidence to participate in sports by taking part in a ‘girls only’ after school sports and competitions
• To provide access to range of diverse sports after school such as Yoga, Gymnastics, Football and Street Dance
• To provide 1 to 1 support at afterschool clubs, for those students who need it. This has meant that afterschool sports have become more inclusive and more children are able to enjoy the activity in a safer environment
• To provide yoga teacher for additional interventions where required for all year groups
• To provide quality assured professional development opportunities for teachers, enabling quality teaching and learning for all children.
In 2018/19 we received £20,260 to support the development of PE and school sport. We used this in the following way:
HOW OUR SPORTS PREMIUM FUND WAS SPENT IN 2017-18 AND THE IMPACT IT HAS HAD:
The above funding was proportionally spent as follows:
• Contributing towards the funding of our PE Lead (20%);
• Funding Specialist PE Coaches (60%);
• Contributing to new sports equipment (10%);
• Providing 1 to 1 support at afterschool clubs, for those students who need it (10%);
More children are taking part in extra-curricular sports clubs than previously; with 11 different sports clubs taking place every week. Monday to Wednesday we have 1 sports club in the morning and Monday to Thursday we have 2 sports clubs each day after school.
Clubs included Football (competitive team and friendly sessions), Gymnastics (beginners and intermediate levels), Street Dance, Arts and Crafts, Mandarin, Badminton, Volleyball, and Table Tennis.
The additional funding has allowed for the specialist PE coaches to team teach with class teachers and provide CPD and modelled lessons in a range of sports.
