PE and Sport Premium - Infant School

Primary Sport Premium (IS)

 

WHAT IS THE SPORTS PREMIUM?

 

The Government is providing funding directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children, the funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

 

PURPOSE OF FUNDING

 

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

 

POSSIBLE USES FOR THE FUNDING INCLUDE:

 

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
    • Change4Life sport clubs
    • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in local and national competitions
  • buying quality assured PE programs of work or materials for PE/sport
    • providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs

 

HOW WILL WE BE SPENDING THE FUNDING AND WHO WILL BENEFIT?

 

The staff, children and governors at Chalfont St Giles all agree that the money must be used so that:

  • all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
  • children are given the opportunity to compete in local and regional tournaments
  • staff have access to resources and training opportunities, plus continued professional development to improve the quality of teaching and learning in physical education
  • children are exposed to a range of traditional and non-traditional sports and health enhancing activities through the curriculum, clubs and school visits

 

Our PE and Sport action plan shows how we intend to spend the sports funding during 2016-2017 and the impact that this is having - see below for the Infant School Action Plan.

Wake and shake

 

We have introduced 'Wake and Shake' at the infant and junior school. This is a simple routine set to music that we do as a whole school for five minutes every day. We do this after lunch to wake us all up ready for the afternoon's learning - both children and staff! The easy-to-follow routines are set to popular songs that the children are thoroughly enjoying.

Extra-curricular clubs

 

An extensive range of school led and externally led lunchtime and after school activities support our curriculum, and form the link to competitive opportunities. Link to clubs -click here.

Change 4 Life Club

 

Change 4 Life is a national initiative aimed at getting both children and adults to:

 

Eat well. Move more. Live longer.

 

We run a ‘Change 4 Life’ club to increase children’s physical activity and wellbeing, whereby a group of children from our junior school lead a club for a group of children at our infant school.

The junior children lead fun activities for the Infant school children, which fit into four categories (target, combat, flight and creative). They have a huge bag of equipment, which is exclusive to the club, and are able to choose what activities they do during the session. For example: archery, bowling, cheerleading, javelin, skipping, blindfolded pair work and many more!

 

This is a great opportunity for children to:

 

- Participate in a new type of sports club that is all about moving and having fun rather than competing against others

- Lead and take ownership of a club – they create the activities themselves

- Increase their self-confidence and self-esteem

- Most important of all – have fun!

Play Leaders

 

We have a fantastic scheme called Play Leaders, whereby the Year 2 children are able to volunteer to become Play Leaders for a half term.  This is an opportunity for the children to support others in the playground by initiating structured activities and games. The Play Leaders learn valuable organisation, communication and leadership skills whilst encouraging others to become more active.
