P.E. and Sports Premium
In 2022/ 23 we received £17808 in PE funding.
Our priority was to continue providing excellent sporting opportunities through the use of sports coaching and by participating in borough wide competitions (football, rugby, athletics, swimming, netball).
We are also investing in our teachers for a longer term impact. We used specialist dance and gymnastics coaches to work alongside our teachers to improve these aspects of the curriculum.
|Barnet Partnership for School Sport. Inclusion ensured that All Saints' could participate in inter school competitions.
|Maintenance of the School Minibus, staff training to drive the bus. Ensured that children can attend sports competitions and play at quality venues. This is important as All Saints' does not have a school field.
|Purchase of Complete PE. Ensured that the curriculum is ambitious and sequenced.
|Specialist gymnastics and dance coaches. Used to improve quality of teaching and learning and to train All Saints' staff.
|Swimming lessons including Year 6 catch up lessons. Ensured children left able to swim 25 meters. This was important as year 6 pupils missed their lessons in Year 4 because of Covid.
|Teacher release. Management time and teacher release to ensure the curriculum was sequenced well.
SWIMMING LESSONS YEAR 6 COHORT:
67% - Can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m
53% - Can use a range of strokes effectively
37% - Can perform safe self rescue in different water-based situations
In 2021/22, we were determined to provide quality PE now that children were able to return to full time learning in school.
We received £17915 in sports funding.
We made excellent use of the borough sports competitions by directing staff to accompany the children on as many sports events as possible. We participated in rugby, netball, football and athletics competitions. We also used specialist sports coaches to provide quality sports lessons in addition to the sports coaching provided during teacher's PPA time. We paid for additional swimming lessons for year 6 who were in danger of leaving All Saints' not being able to swim 25 meters. We purchased a net for the Multi Use Games Area to make ball games more rewarding.
Below are estimates of costs
|Cover our multi use games area with a net.
|Ball games were challenging on our MUGA. Balls were lost over the fence too easily. A net made games more rewarding.
|Sports Coaching from All4Sport
|In addition to PE provided for the children during teachers PPA time, additional coaching is provided to ensure children were ready for athletics competitions. The children came 4th in the borough athletics competition. This competition involved all of the KS2 classes.
|Coaching for Year 5 and Year 6 in cricket, rugby and football
|Additional specialist coaching in cricket and football increased participation and ensured the school was very competitive in cricket, rugby and football.
|Resources for PE
|Replacing resources which were broken and increasing equipment available including new table tennis tables and athletics equipment.
|Maintenance of the minibus
|This allows us to use the minibus to transport children to competitive matches efficiently.
|Most children can swim 25 meters by the time they leave All Saints'. Children still unable to swim 25 meters at the end of year 6 are invited to summer swimming lessons at Oakleigh Swimming School.
Overtime and staff paid in school time so we can provide children with sports competitions.
The salary of our sports coach is also funded by the sports premium.
|Barnet Partnership for School Sport
|Allows the school to participate in borough wide competitions.
In 2020/21, our plans to develop PE at All Saints' were disrupted by the pandemic. The children were not allowed to play team sport for most of the academic year, borough competitions were cancelled and children were often taught from home. Despite these challenges, we used the sports premium to increase participation in exercise.
|Additional Sports Coaches to work with children attending school during lockdown.
|The specialist teaching allowed some children, whose parents were working hard to support the country during the pandemic, to have quality PE lessons. It also ensured that the PE provider was able to stay in business at a time of financial strain. This would ensure that PE provision is as good as it can be once the pandemic is over.
|Staffing of specialist teaching assistants to support children in PE.
|Teaching Assistant used their time both in school and online to motivate children to engage in physical activity. This was invaluable.
|Training for staff
|Training provided by Barnet Partnership for School Sport to ensure staff were able to deliver quality PE.
|Resources for PE
|Replacing resources which were broken.
|Maintenance of the minibus
|This allows us to use the minibus when competitive sport with other schools is possible.
In 2019/20, All Saints' received £18,080 in sports premium funding. This was spent in the following ways:
|Minibus maintenance, insurance, services and diesel
|Sports Leader preparation time and overtime to supervise events
|Swimming for Year 3, 4 and 6
|Overtime for support staff to run sports clubs
Tag Rugby Coaching weekly for year 5 and 6
Football coaching for girls
|Football Coaching for year 5 and 6
|Participation in Barnet Schools Sports Association Events
CPD for staff from All for Sport Sports Coaching
Assessment Package from All4Sport
This funding led to full participation in the local authority events including netball, swimming, football, tag rugby, cross country, athletics. All children who wanted to represent the school in sport in Year 6 were able to. We ran a girls football team and 2 boys football teams. CPD and additional specialist coaching in rugby, football, swimming and athletics ensured a lasting legacy, as staff have improved knowledge of how to coach sport and encourage wider participation.
In 2018/19 the school received a grant of £10,519. This money was used to continue to pay for the additional swimming lessons, specialist football coaching in Key Stage 2, dedicated sports coaches in Years 1 to 6.
To ensure that we built our own 'in house' capacity to provide the highest standards of sports coaching, we employed our sports coach Ms Fallon, who was trained in 2018 as a PE specialist.
She is now permanently employed to support sport throughout the school. She trains our athletics team, runs netball clubs and coordinates participation in borough sports competitions such as the rugby league, swimming gala and athletics competitions. If you have any questions about sports coaching then please get in touch with her via the school office.
Ms Fallon - Sports Coach
The grant from the government will not exist every year and we feel it is important that the money spent will have a long lasting legacy. The building of the school MUGA, the purchase of a minibus and new school resources and the training of a long serving member of staff will benefit the children for many years to come.
In 2017/18, the school received an additional £14,331. The school continued to invest in the sports provision started in previous years including the use of 'All for Sport' coaching in Years 2 to 6 and specialist football coaching.
Additional investment included:
- Extension of Swimming lessons to Years 3 and 4, and catch up lessons in Year 6 - £6000. This ensures that all children leave All Saints' being able to swim 25 metres unaided
- The purchase of a minibus to allow children to attend more sporting events such as the cricket festival, netball and football matches and athletics tournaments - £6000 contribution
- To ensure a lasting legacy, the school paid for a permanent member of staff to be trained as a specialist sports coach -£1,000 + PPA costs
In 2016/17 All Saints' received £9,040. We used the money towards the following projects:
- Appointed a dedicated sports coaching company to complement the PE lessons delivered by the teachers (All for Sport) which costs £11,730
- Provided specialist, weekly football coaching for girls and boys in Year 5 and 6 - £1,530
- Trained staff to teach consistently outstanding PE Lessons. This was delivered by 'All For Sport' - £600
- Bought new sports equipment, including a climbing wall and gymnastics equipment at a cost of £7,000
- Paid for a storage unit to store our PE equipment and make it more accessible to the MUGA which cost £3,000
The Sports Premium Grant allows schools to improve access, participation and enjoyment of competitive sport.
In the financial year 2014/15 All Saints' Primary received £8,905 and in 2015/16 All Saints' received £9,479.25
We used the sports grant to build a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) on a little used patch of ground on our school site. This allowed children to play team games all year round. The surface is safer than the old concrete or uneven grass.
To finance this build, the school raised its own funds. ASSA (our parents association) contributed £35,000 and the Board of Governors also raised £25,000. With additional school funds - a grant from the John Lyons Trust and the Sports Premium - we completed the build in April 2016.
