Primary Sports Funding 2020 – 21

At The Alton School we use the PE funding to improve PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport. The funding for 2020-21 wass £17,550

  • The funding for 2020-21 was used to :
  • Increase participation in sport through the provision of qualified coached during lunchtimes.
  • provide quality coaches for teaching PE lessons across the school.
  • Provide support for children to attend local competitions and events with other schools through membership of the local sports partnership.
  • purchase additional PE and lunchtime play equipment.
  • Support to encourage Year 5 children to attend a week away at an activity centre - although this was planned this was not possible due to Covid 19 restrictions. The school hopes to use this underspend to provide addiional opportunities for activity centres deuring 2021/22
  • Additional swimming and PE support for Resource Base children- unfortunately due to Covid 19 the pool was closed during 2020/21 we will be using this underspend to provide an additional swimming session to help pupils catch up on swimming.
  • In addition the school is lucky enough to work with Rackets Cubed who provide specialist tennis coaching for children at the Roehampton Club. The school were able to continue this at the school during the last academic year and are planning to attend sessions at the club again from September 2021.

Key Indicator 1  The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity

  • Funding is used to provide additional sports coaching during lunchtime and after school.
  • Learning support assistants are trained to engage in physical activities with children during breaktimes, teaching and playing physical games to keep the children active.
  • Children regularly attend trips to local parks and London attractions.
  • Provision of lunchtime activities encourages less active pupils to engage in physical activity and develop their skills, increasing their sporting participation

Key indicator 2: The profile of PESSPA being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

  • Provision of specialist sports coaches for swimming, tennis and other sports raises the profile of sport within the school ensuring that pupils are given access to a wide range of skills and activities, developing teamwork, life skills and communication.
  • The school held several vey successful socially distanced sports days this year using the skills of a specialised sports coach.

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

  • Staff are equipped with the knowledge of how to support children in playground activities to enable constructive and positive playground experiences and activities. The school also uses a specialised coach for sporting activities.

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

  • Children at the Alton are able to participate in a wide range of sports following a 3 year cycle in addition to the specialist sports coaching they receive in tennis.
  • Children concentrate on a different sport each half term, developing skills in different areas and enabling them to sample a wide range of sports to see which ones they may like to develop further.

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport

  • The school participates in competitions with other local schools, using sports funding to pay for membership and for travel to other schools,
  • The children work on a particular sport each half term and the school holds its own inter school competition in this sport at the end of each half term.  This increases the children’s knowledge of different sports. Raises the profile of sport across the school and encourages children to seek out opportunities to compete in sport outside of the school.
  • Certificates and prizes are given to the winning teams.
  • The school runs a sports day once a year which is enjoyed by pupils and well attended by their families

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.

  • Due to Covid 19, we were unable to complete the swimming programme for the 20120-2021 year and year 6 students were not tested as expected at the end of the summer term.
  • For 2021/22 we will be focussing on improving swimming ability for children with fewer swimming skills, aiming to give them the best chance of achieving national objectives by the end of the year.
  • We are lucky enough to be able to use Ibstock Place Swimming Pool for which we are very grateful and children need only walk across the road to attend swimming lessons and we have been able to secure an additional session for the autumn term 2021.  The short distance to the pool enables them to maximise their time there.
  • Unfortunately, the pool was shut at the end of March 2020 for Covid 19 and did not reopen dueing the 2020-21 academic year.
  • Children in our resource base would nomally have received additional swimming over and above the national minimum and we expect to use this underspend for eomw additioanl swimming in 2021/2022
