Impact of Sport premium 2016 – 2017

 

Specialist P.E teacher and Transport to competitions £8000

Level 5 Specialist P.E training has been put to good use and ideas are being used in lessons to show progression.

Assessment has been created for each half term and children can use this assessment to progress and develop their skills. Children are now using these by self-assessing. They know what they need to do to achieve the next level. Photo and video evidence has been gathered for different milestones and profiles are being created to show how the assessment is being used.

P.E lessons and assessments have been commended by outside agencies and judged as outstanding, allowing progression for the children. Engagement and interest levels were judged as being extremely high during the lesson, which shows that using a specialist teacher has had a great impact on the children’s motivation.

Attendance to sports competitions has increased greatly and interest from the children to attend these events has risen dramatically. Participation in after school clubs has been great and there has been a huge improvement in skill development and achievement. This year has seen the school enter two citywide finals, which is a first, in hockey and basketball, meaning that both teams have won their East Manchester tournaments and have competed against other winners in a regional tournament. The basketball team resulted in 6th place overall, out of 135 schools that entered.

The specialist P.E teacher gets into the water with children at swimming, encouraging children who are scared of the water or who need support and works with them to ensure progression, as well as working with the children who are achieving, to improve and strengthen their skills.

 

Passport to sport  £900

Using passport to sport is allowing us to offer children an extra after school club each week, in a sport that they might not usually have access to. So far this year we have used it for taekwondo and street dance and will be experiencing basketball and handball in the Summer term. The children who have been to these after school clubs have benefitted greatly from it and the improvement in skills and confidence has been excellent. This confidence has then transferred over to P.E lessons as well as in class.

Catch up swimming  £600

Last year we achieved 75% of the year 5 cohort achieving their 25m certificate at swimming. Some children were taken twice a week to boost their confidence. All of the children, who were taken swimming twice a week, achieved their 25m by the end of the school year. Accessing two swimming sessions a week really boosted the children’s confidence and the extra exposure to lessons gave them chance to catch up to their peers and exceed.

Plymouth Grove Sports competitions 2015/2016

During the academic year 2015/2016, Plymouth Grove attended a vast amount of inter school competitions as well as taking part in friendly matches. They are as follows:

Athletics – Six boys and six girls attended an athletics competition at St. Peters high school. This was the first time we had attended this event and we came sixth out of ten schools. The children took part in a range of track races, as well as field events such as javelin, seated chest push, long jump and speed bounce. Their points were added together to give them a total score.

Basketball – eight boys and four girls attended a basketball tournament at St. Peters high school. We took two teams and entered into both leagues. It was the first tournament that some of the children had been to and they really enjoyed playing against different schools and putting what they had learnt into practise. We are really hoping to do even better next year. ‘A team’ finished in 3rd place and ‘B team’ finished in 6th place.

Boys Football – The year five and six boys football teams took part in the most matches and tournaments. They had friendly games against St.Agnes, St. Chrysostoms, St. Lukes, Medlock and Armitage.

They also attended two football tournaments. One took place at The East Manchester Academy and the other at William Hulme. As well as this, they entered both the Manchester United and Manchester city tournaments (nine boys to each).

The year three and four boys team also had a tournament at Abby Hey Primary School, run by Bolton football club and had a friendly football match against Medlock.

Girls football/ Futsal – The girls football team was established this year and they had quite a few matches and tournaments. They had friendly matches against St. Agnes, St. Lukes and Armitage, which they won, as well as taking part in a tournament at The East Manchester Academy. They came fourth out of seven schools.

For the first time, we entered a Futsal competition at The JJB SoccerDome, which the girls really enjoyed. It was different to the football matches they had played, but relished in the opportunity, coming third out of eight schools.

Hockey –  We entered one team, four boys and two girls, into a hockey tournament at Cedar Mount Academy. We were put into a pool with other local schools and came second in our group. This meant that we had a ‘play-off’ game against the winners of a different group, which we unfortunately lost. The children really enjoyed this tournament and are hoping to do even better next year.

Rounders – We entered a rounder’s team, consisting of five boys and four girls, into a tournament at William Hulme. It was great for the children to play against different schools, as they really put what they had learnt in P.E into action when playing the game. They improved so much, with every game that they played and came third out of five teams in their group.

Sport Premium 2013-14

This year the school received £9548 funding as part of the primary school sport funding.  The breakdown of this spending is as follows:

Sports Coaches for Foundation stage and lunchtimes: £8550

Sport City: £1807

The main goals of the funding for 2013-14 are to raise the level of basic movement skills in the early years and inspiring children to be active during breaktime and lunchtimes. The school has also raised aspirations regarding participation in sport through the hosting of Sports Day at Sport City. The focus on these activities enabled the school to achieve the Healthy Schools’ Award.

The school blog currently shows the Plymouth Grove skills tube which is used to inspire children and provide ideas and inspiration for activities they can try during lunchtimes and breaktimes. It is also a great showcase for displaying the talents of the children.

Basic movement skills are a very important aspect for children’s development in the early years. Sports coaches work with children in nursery and reception to develop  these gross motor skills.

As a result of the PE funding the school was able to fund the hosting of Sports Day at Sport City. This is proving to be a real highlight and in preparation for the event the children can be seen to be practising various athletic events.

Future spending is to focus on employing a specialist PE teacher to deliver the whole school curriculum and increase opportunities for after school activities.
