The PE and sport premium is a grant from central Government designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. CJS has received a grant of £10,500 pa.
CJS has a strong PE/sporting culture with a broad curriculum offer and a wide range of clubs with strong take up (well over 50% of boys and girls participation in after school clubs in 2013/2014. Data available for each year group). All classes are timetabled for 1 hour of PE and 1 hour of Games; as well as daily fit breaks. We have made arrangements for specialist teaching of PE (see below). Class teachers teach their own Games lessons and we judge teachers’ levels of confidence and expertise to be strong.
The PE and sport premium is a grant from central Government designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. CJS has received a grant of £10,579.
CJS has a strong PE/sporting culture with a broad curriculum offering and a wide range of clubs with strong up take (approximately 50% of boys and girls participation in after school clubs in Autumn 2016/17. Data available for each year group). All classes are timetabled for 1 hour of PE and 1 hour of Games; as well as daily fit breaks. We have made arrangements for specialist teaching of PE (see below). A mix of class teachers and designated specialist teaching assistants teach Gym, Dance and Games lessons. We judge these individuals’ levels of confidence and expertise to be strong. The quality of teaching is monitored by our PE subject leader. Strong links with our local secondary school enable us to utilise their sports leaders for sporting events like sports days and train our Bronze Sports Ambassadors.
We promote competitive Games lessons; which end with mini tournaments, and throughout the year, each gym and dance unit culminates with a performance related to the specific topic. In addition, the School Sport Partnership runs a programme of inter school events, fixtures and tournaments (13% participated in at least one inter school event in Autumn 2016/17).
Our Change for Life club has been a resounding success in targeting children less inclined to participate in P.E. – many have gone on to join other sporting clubs.
The school has co-ordinated and led a swimming programme for local primary schools hiring the town’s leisure centre and a bus which shuttles 8 classes from the 4 schools each Monday. All pupils in Year 3 and 4 have 5 weeks of swimming lessons (1/2 hour) led by 3 coaches from local swimming clubs (this is scheduled in addition to the 2 hours of PE each week).
In recent years (2010) the school was supported by the LA for a refurbishment of our playing field (£40,000). In 2012 the school successfully bid for funding for a non-turf cricket wicket (£7,000 of which cost half was met by Chance To Shine and the other half came from our devolved capital budget). The school is now a hub for local youth cricket, managed by Christchurch Cricket Club.
The school is using the additional grant to subsidise arrangements detailed below.
- Service level agreement with local School Sport Partnership. To provide a programme of CPD, deliver inter-school competitions, routes to local sports clubs etc…(see attached documents) £2,500
- 5 hours per week of a Senior TA to co-ordinate sporting fixtures and competitions. £2,867
- 5 hours per week of Senior TA (qualified gym coach) to support a gym club, dance club and provide PE curriculum planning. £2,867
- 4 days supply cover to enable teachers to observe Senior TA Gym coach or other teachers in PE/Games lessons taught by specialist TAs. £800
- The School employs a TA with specialist PE skills. He runs lunch, after school clubs (change 4 life) and competitive teams. (In addition to teaching PE lessons). This represents 10 hours per week of his contract. £5734
- Swimming lessons for all pupils in Year 3 and 4. Mainly subsidised by PTFA but school’s budget contribution. £800
- Annual agreement with Dorset Cricket Board/Chance To Shine to fund specialist coaching £270
- Estimated annual cost of running minibus and funding additional TA hours to support competitive inter-school fixtures. £1,800
This represents a total spend of £17,638
The school also employs:
- a gymnastics/dance coach to teach 16 hours per week of PE/Gym to all classes plus 4 hours of prep time (this does create teacher PPA time but it is our policy that all lessons are covered by an additional TA). This costs the school £12,860
- a Senior TA to teach 10 hours per week of PE and Games (including some prep time) This costs the school £12,860
In addition, the PTFA has made regular commitments to provide additional sports and outside play equipment (approx. £12,000 has been spent in the past 3 years). Successful bids to local trust have enabled purchase of two sets of aluminium goal posts (£4,000).
The school’s capitation budget for PE this year is £500.
Impact of Pupil Premium spending
- Service Level Agreement: Specialist teachers and assistants able to teach classes for Games covering all National Curriculum skills across a broad range of sporting disciplines; high proportion of pupils will take part in inter-school competitions; partnerships with local clubs for swimming, boys and girls cricket and football, dance, skateboarding, dodgeball, tennis, basketball, yoga and others.
- Members of staff attend CPD/training provided by local partnership in a range of activities and sporting disciplines, including Fundamental skills, Change4Life, Gymnastics and Cricket; figures provided at end of school year.
- High quality gymnastics, dance and aerobics taught to all classes one lesson per week.
- 20 children currently take part in gym club and 31 children in dance club. These children present work at 2 Arts Showcases; the school’s Summer Fair and one local festival.
- Based on previous year figures, TAs will organise 2 Year 5/6 boys, 1 Y5/6 girls and 1 mixed Y4 football teams who play in approx. 20 fixtures and competitions; Change 4 Life Club involves approximately 60 pupils weekly for approx. 21 weekly sessions. TAs help promote our wide lunchtime and after school club offer – high figures of children involved, eg in Year 6 – 45%, Year 5 – 44%, Year 4 – 57%, Year 3 – 45% of pupils participated in all our school clubs; we anticipate this to increase in the coming 2 terms)
- Every pupil in Years 3-4 takes part in a swimming programme of 5 lessons. We estimate that by end of Y4, 75% can swim 25metres – next year to be monitored.
- ECB coaches work each week for 3 hours in school (1 hour in Y3 in addition to their scheduled PE; 1 hour with Yr 4 club after school; 1 hour with Year 5 club). High level of success in local competitions; Y6 boys – winners of County Cup in 2015 and again in 2016. Girls are county indoor cricket champions. School is hub for Christchurch CC youth teams.
- In 2015/16 the school participated in approx. 50 sporting fixtures across the County – no charge to parents. We anticipate this to be the same in 2016/17/
