PE & Sports Premium Spending 2015/16 – Allocation £8,855
To raise the quality of teaching PE and sport in school, ensuring that standards are at least good at St Bernards we will:
Hire qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE
We will continue to organise for specialist coaches to come into school, provided by Team Theme. Our teachers will observe and participate in the sessions to develop their own skills so that they can then teach this area themselves, once the coach has completed their course of teaching.
We will pay for an external provider to train staff with their classes with either a whole school approach to a particular area or tailoring the training to individual teachers’ needs.
Not only will the children benefit from being taught by a specialist coach but our own staff will be developed through sharing good practice and assisting in the PE lessons.
Join the Sports Development team
In partnership with other local primary schools within our cluster; we will join Preston Sports Development. This will enable us to access support and local competitions in the Preston area.
Provide places for pupils in after school sports clubs
Our school already offers a range of after school clubs, accessed by children from Key Stages 1 and 2. These clubs will continue to run as before. We aim to provide clubs for Football, Cricket, Street Dance and Infant dance. Some clubs will run throughout the year however others will run at various times of the year. Most clubs will continue to be provided free of charge including clubs run by Team Theme. Coaches will be used to prepare children for tournaments and performances, offering specialist training to support.
Provide opportunities for children to compete
Our PE & Sport Co-ordinator will arrange tournaments and fixtures between the cluster primaries, whilst offering exit routes for our more gifted children, allowing them to compete against other children at a higher level. St Bernard’s pupils have represented the town and city teams, we feel it is important that children who are more able in sport are given the chance to participate against others of a similar ability and potential.
Provide training for lunchtime supervisors to introduce playground games at lunchtimes
Lunchtime Supervisors who engage with children’s play can transform lunchtimes. At St Bernard’s, our Lunchtime supervisors will be trained to offer children a positive play opportunity during the lunchtime break.
Introduce Playground Leaders
New playground leaders from Key Stage 2 have been trained and have begun working in the Key Stage 1 playground at lunchtimes.
A School Sports Crew will be elected. They will take on a variety of sporting roles throughout the school year, beginning with an Intra-School competition in the summer.
Extend the use of the house team system to inter-house sports competitions for pupils of all ages
Our annual Sports Day is the end of year whole school sporting event where family and friends are welcome to come along to join in the fun and lend their support. We will extend the use of the house team system to enable regular, inter-house sports competitions for pupils of all ages throughout the year.
We will also:
Pay for transport to various events, i.e. inter-town athletics events, Cricket etc
Purchase new sports equipment
Purchase a new football team kit – pupils will have a higher self-esteem and sense of pride for their team
Provide cover to release teachers for professional development in PE & Sport and to attend sports events.
