SPORTS PREMIUM 2015-16
Sports Premium is an amount of money allocated to schools and academies to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increased participation in P.E and sport so that pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. Schools and Academies are able to decide how best to spend this money to enhance sporting provision. They must however be accountable for how the money is spent in providing this support.
The Academy was allocated £8965 for the 2015-16 academic year.
The funding was used in the following ways
1) Membership of School's Sports Partnership (£1500)
2) Funding for transport to designated events including competitions (£965)
3) Funding for an extra-curricular multi-skills club (Key Stage 1) and an extra-curricular badminton club (Key Stage 2) (£925)
4) Acquisition of resources to facilitate and support the delivery of P.E across the Academy. (£695)
5) Provide a series of 6 preliminary swimming lessons for pupils in Year 3 prior to beginning statutory swimming sessions at the start of Year 4. To provide a series of 6 additional swimming sessions to pupils within years 4 to 6 who have failed to meet the required standard of 25 metres. (£1650 including coaches)
6) Subsidising extra-curricular sports clubs including ju-jitzu and gymnastics (£726)
TOTAL EXPEDITURE FOR THE YEAR = £6462
The remaining money will be carried over to the 2016-17 academic year and will help to subsidise the levelling of the football pitch at the rear of the school.
What impact has the Sports Premium 2015-16 had on Thrunscoe Academy?
- Increased pupil participation rates in extra-curricular sports clubs across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Over 60% of pupils in years 1-6 now participate in at least one extra-curricular club each week and we are committed to improving this statistic each year.
- All pupils in years 1-6 have participated in an inter-school festival in conjunction with a local secondary school (Cleethorpes Academy)
- Staff are being upskilled through the School Sports Partnership training programme and through a sports specialist, Owen Denovan, coming into school each term and giving demonstration lessons.
- New equipment has been purchased to allow pupils to use more high quality resources during physical education lessons.
- The number of pupils who couldn't swim 25m unaided in Year 4 reduced from 9 to 3, meaning 90% of pupils could swim 25m unaided by the end of Year 4.
- Introductory swimming lessons for Year 3 pupils meant they were more confident in their ability when entering Year 4.
WHAT WILL FUTURE SPORTS PREMIUM MONEY BE SPENT ON
- Paying for coaches to work alongside teaching staff to aid development.
- Continue to subsidise extra-curricular clubs
- Purchasing of new gymnastic mats and other equipment.
