Sports Pupil Premium
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary aged pupils from 1st September 2013.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Shelton Infant School
In 2023-24 our school will receive £17400.00
In 2022-23 our school received £17400.00
We are spending this funding on:-
- Employment of a Forest Schools practitioner to challenge the children in both team and individual tasks whilst developing the children's balance, agility and coordination in a highly engaging way.
- Affiliation to the Derby City Schools Sports Partnership to enable our teachers to access high quality professional development in PE and to network with teachers from other schools in Derby to share good practice.
- External training for staff relating to particular priorities for the school, eg. engaging boys in dance.
- Arrange after school sports clubs (delivered by Derby County Community Trust) - clubs include archery, fencing, multi-sports and tennis clubs, providing wider sporting opportunities. All clubs are affiliated to the Children's University.
- Buy new resources identified by staff as essential to developing the teaching and learning of PE in school.
- Staff costs involved in running the Physical Literacy Programme for Reception pupils and Year 2 pupils. Pupils are assessed against the national physical milestones and targeted intervention strategies are delivered for those pupils not achieving the required threshold of milestones. In previous years, analysis of pupil attainment data has consistently confirmed the positive impact which this work has upon pupils, particularly upon attainment in Writing.
- Funding a sports coach to work alongside our Midday Supervisors to provide pupils with high quality physical activity during lunchtimes. The coach will deliver our "Personal Trainers" initiative, enabling year 2 children to develop leadership skills, resilience and commitment. The Midday Supervisors will observe the good practice of the coaches with a focus upon sustaining the engagement of pupils in physical activities.
- Raise the profile of the sporting achievements of pupils on our "Shelton Sports Stars" display in school. Children share their extra-curricular sporting exploits in our weekly Celebration Assembly and receive certificates.
- Generate and maintain links with other schools and local sports clubs to share good practice, organise events etc. Aim to provide pupils with greater opportunities to participate in events external to the school.
- Joint Forest Schools sessions with a local primary school to disseminate good practise with a positive impact upon children beyond our school.
- Providing transport to a range of sporting events in which the children can take part competitively. This will also include transport to the annual Celebration of Dance festival for two of our classes.
- Staging a range of activities within school to engage and involve children alongside their parents, providing examples of physical activity that can be easily replicated at home, aiming to develop a love of physical activity and to embed elements of a healthy lifestyle.
The impact of this additional funding will be:-
- To ensure our teachers receive high quality professional development opportunities so that all PE lessons delivered in school are good or better.
- To ensure all pupils receive a high quality PE curriculum.
- Ensuring all children practise and perform high quality dances to a range of audiences both in school and at other venues, eg, Celebration of Dance.
- Increased physical co-ordination and academic attainment for those pupils who participate in the Physical Literacy Intervention Programme.
- To increase the expertise of our Midday Supervisors in sustaining children’s engagement in physical activity during lunchtimes.
- Ensure all pupils engage with a range of physical activity opportunities during lunchtimes.
- Widen the variety of out of hours sports clubs offered to our pupils.
- Share achievable and sustainable activities and lifestyle choices with the wider school community.
