Primary PE and Sport Premium 2016-17

Primary PE and Sport Premium 2016-17

Primary PE and Sport premium is funding allocated to primary schools based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 and a lump sum pre school. It is anticipated that the Academy will receive £14,880 of primary PE and Sport Premium funding for 2016/17.

This year the funding received is being spent on the following areas:

  • Providing a significant increase in extra-curricular PE and sport provision through lunchtime and after-school sessions, along with a calendar of NCEAsport primary events. This has led to success and teams winning at the L3 School Games finals. Attendance at clubs has significantly increased along with the diversity of provision.
  • Support for the employment of two specialist PE teachers who teach and up-skill staff through PE CPD mentoring across our five primary sites. This is leading to more confident classroom teachers and an increase in primary teams at intra and inter sports fixtures.
  • Increased links with our Centre learners, hosting a range of all-inclusive sports events.
  • We are continuing to raise the profile of primary PE and sport through embedding cross-curricular links with our external partners:

– Family football and Unite in Education (Newcastle United Foundation)

– FA skills programme (The Football Association)

– All Schools Rugby (Northumberland RFU)

– Dance (Milly Dance Academy)

– Chance to Shine (Northumberland cricket)

  • Active Northumberland (swimming and sports projects)
  • Additional P.E. Resources have been purchased for Primary Campuses (i.e. Gymnastics equipment / football goals, etc).
  • An increase in cross curricular projects – i.e. Musicals (dance) theme and festival at all primary campuses and ‘Maths of the day’ (Maths/PE) at Thomas Bewick and William Leech Primary campus.
  • A sports camp will be provided at Easter and Summer 2016.  Through the Youth SportTrust (we are a primary member), we are working in partnership with other schools to help raise whole school achievement. We are helping to deliver and support PE and Sport at Cramlington Village primary school.

The regular monitoring of pupil performance and progress is undertaken.

PE and school sport have an important role to play in raising standards and narrowing the achievement gap across the NCEA curriculum. We now have PE and sport as part of a broad and balanced curriculum and this is leading to improvements in attendance, behaviour and attainment as well as building self-esteem and promoting teamwork and leadership skills.

The impact and outcomes of some specific actions are highlighted in the table below:

We are focused on creating a lasting legacy from our current profile. Through PE and Sport at NCEA, the aim is for all young people to:

  • Fulfil their individual potential
  • Adopt a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Display a positive attitude to PE
  • Develop life-skills- communication, teamwork and self-management
