P.E Spending Review 2016-17
Our Sports Premium budget has been invested in:
· Gymnastics coaching £6,080
· Liverpool Football Club multi skills coach £10,200
· Participating in a range sporting activities organised by L.S.S.P, St Helens Rugby Club and L.F.C.
Outcomes from this expenditure
As a result of this expenditure our school has seen an increase in participation of extracurricular activities, as the following percentages illustrate:
Year 1 / 2 2015 - 24% 2017- 71%
Year 3 / 4 2015 - 50% 2017- 84%
Year 5 / 6 2015- 60% 2017- 93%
In terms of competitive competitions our school has increased the number and variety we have been able to attend to include:
· Boys and girls Football
· Tri golf
· Dance festivals
Other areas of sport participations:
We have continued our swimming programme from Year 3-6 and this has resulted in 84% of Year 6 being able to swim 25m or more.
We are continuing to develop our more adventurous elements of the curriculum with our annual visit to the Kingswood Centre with our Year 5 class.
Impact of the Sport’s Fund Spending:
Not only have we increased participation we have also seen a dramatic increase in our success levels, especially in the field of football where our Year 3 teams reached the regional finals for the second year running and our Year 6 team won the LFC mini league. These were major achievements considering the standard of opposition in those competitions.
Our gymnastics team were also successful at doing a performance at the opening ceremony of the Junior Gymnastics Championships at the Echo Arena. We were also successful at reaching the Mersey Games finals, for the very first time, with our Tri Golf team that consisted of the less sports minded pupils.
It is hoped next year to develop our idea of more active lessons by adopting the Maths of the Day programme throughout the school. This is aimed at increasing physical activity within lessons and has been successfully trailed, this year, by using small groups from year 5 and 6.
To conclude then, I think it is clear from the general enthusiasm around our school that the range and volume of sporting activities has increased the participation and interest levels around physical activities. The children are learning to win and lose in the right spirit and I can see that our sporting culture is developing self control, discipline and last but not least enjoyment in sports.
