Sports Premium Funding

This report sets out how we are spending our sports premium funding to develop school sport.

At Dean Gibson Catholic Primary School we endeavour to use the sports premium funding to promote Physical Education and sport within the school. We have used the money this year as follows:
In September 2015, Kendal Schools’ PE co-ordinator Laura Smith delivered a six week block of sports leader training sessions for our year 6 children. This enabled the children to deliver sports coaching sessions and games at lunchtime for our younger children, which greatly benefitted them. Also during the Autumn Term Laura Smith worked alongside our PPA cover teacher (Mrs Marshall) with a focus of teaching competitive games within PE lessons. In October we purchased new tracksuit tops in order to enhance the profile of our school at competitive sporting festivals and instil a greater sense of team spirit. We used a portion of our money to fund extra-curricular key stage 1 football and multi-skills clubs with a view to increasing participation amongst the younger children within school. Moving into the spring term, Tom Penny from the Westmorland Football Association delivered coaching sessions to year 3 and 4 children over a spell of six weeks, benefitting not only the participating children but the teachers who observed good practice.
In order to raise participation amongst girls in school sport we used a portion of the funding to deliver an extra-curricular key stage 1 and 2 gymnastics club in February and March 2016. We have also set up a key stage 2 multi-skills club which starts in March 2016 and will continue until Easter. Moving into the summer term, a professional dance teacher will be working alongside Mrs Martin in year 1 and Mr Ashburn in year 2 to develop the teaching of dance in curriculum PE lessons, whilst Laura Smith will be working with Miss Hodgson and year 3 to develop the teaching of gymnastics.
Also in the summer term we will be using a portion of our money to obtain new gymnastics equipment. Once purchased, Laura Smith will be leading staff training looking specifically at how the equipment can be used effectively in gymnastics lessons to maximise learning.
Other ways in which the funding has been used is by paying for pool hire, providing access to the swimming curriculum and covering supply cover costs so that staff member can take groups of children to competitive sports events across the district.
Finally, Laura Smith will be leading staff training regarding assessment in PE.
