In the academic year 2017-18, Four Elms will receive a Sports Premium funding of £16,970.
This funding will go towards the school employs a dedicated sports teacher and leader for one day a week. This leader will deliver high-quality PE lesson across the school; up-skill and train staff in PE delivery and assessment; provide and manage curriculum resources that improve teaching and planning and enhance the curriculum with sports/activities the children may not have access to, for example, archery.
We aim to use our Sports Premium funding to achieve the following criteria:
1. To increase opportunities for inter and intra house sporting competitions.
2. To be able to offer outstanding PE instruction to for all age groups.
3. A legacy of outstanding PE provision is maintained after the funding has finished.
4. Our PE subject leader is up to date with current best practice and can lead PE successfully.
5. To have attained a bronze level Sports award and then progress towards silver and then gold.
6. To increase participation in locally organised and age appropriate festivals and competitions.
7. To purchase age appropriate equipment to deliver a range of sporting activities.
8. To offer more of a range of sports clubs funded by the School every week.
We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium Funding as part of our self-evaluation process. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium Funding to improve the quality of P.E and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all children develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Measuring the impact of the activities provided with Sports Premium Funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. We feel that the measurement of impact upon attainment will develop over the next 2 years. We aim to adequately support all of our teachers by providing a tailored approach. Therefore this support will be given at different points of the year to different staff members. As a school we would hope to see improvements in the children’s progress in P.E, however this may not be measurable for all year groups/ classes until the end of the next academic year. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in P.E.
We aim to have this data by the end of the academic year.
