PE Funding Impact Report 2020-21

Yoga for children
The impact of this initiative has been that every child in the school has taken part in yoga on a regular basis. Benefits are vast, from improved emotional wellbeing and ability to follow instruction to physical impact such as increased flexibility, respect for self and others and self-regulation which is needed in order to participate in any team sport. Sports coaches and teachers teaching PE report an improvement in children's engagement levels in lessons and improved physical skills such as balance and co-ordination team skills. Children have been observed practising yoga independently at playtimes and this helps to send the message that movement and strength not only comes from vigorous exercise and that it can become part of your daily routine. Evidence - Pupil voice, coaches responses, teacher evaluations and observations.

Lunchtime Healthy Activity Leadership.
The impact of this expenditure has been that there has been a dedicated member of staff at lunchtime encouraging. children to be active, including modelling how to use the activity trail playground markings, setting up team games such as football and basketball and also time trials. Benefits include more children are being active, as well as the identification and targeting of individuals who choose not to be physically active at lunchtime and a safer play environment.

Evidence - Observations of lunchtime play.
TA in charge of promoting physical outdoor learning in the EYFS The impact of this has been that more physical activities are set up each day and children are actively engaging in these. Observations have shown that all children in the EYFS cohort achieved at least expected standard, with many at exceeding for the area of physical development.

Evidence - Data, observations, planning.
Jump Ahead Physical Programme

Being able to engage more children in the Jump Ahead Programme due to the funding received has had considerable impact on the co-ordination and cognitive functioning of children involved. This in turn has impact in all attainment markers.

Evidence - Pupil voice, lesson observations, teacher feedback.
Premier Sports Lunch Club

The impact of this expenditure has been a nearly 65% increase in children taking part in structured fitness activities as provided by the coach.

Evidence - Tracking from Premier Sports
PE Equipment

Having the correct equipment for sports and fitness is essential and using the funding for this is essential with the impact of the coaches having what they need to fully teach skills.

  • Teachers feel more confident in delivering lessons that include fitness and have a broader experience (Evidence: Staff meeting discussions)
  • Teachers have been able to make more accurate and fully developed assessments since working with the Sports coach (Evidence: Assessment records)

Background
The Government provides funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and sees money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The purpose of the funding is that schools have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this. Allocation Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils receive a lump sum, plus a premium of £5 per pupil.

Accountability
Schools are held to account for how they spend the Sport funding. Ofsted has strengthened its coverage of sport and PE within the Inspectors’ Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision offered. The Senior Leadership Team at West Rise Infant School regularly monitor and assess the impact of the funding and report back to the Governing Body.

PE Funding 2021/22
Predicted Income £17,810 to be spent as above in order to maintain current provision.
