The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
The government is spending over £450 million on this funding over the three academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.
Each year, schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000, with an additional £5 per pupil ‘top up’. This funding is to be used for PE and school sport (incorporating health and active lifestyle programmes).

Requirements: the Ofsted framework

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that the premium should be used to:
• develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers
• make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Ofsted assesses how primary schools spend their PE and sports premium.

Our Sports Premium allocation

Each year since 2013, we have received a total sum of £8,000, plus a premium of £5 per child. We have had around 216 children on role, so our sports premium has been around £9,080.

The information below clearly states how this money has been spent on previous years.

How have we used the money so far?

  • Approximately £4,000 on a sports programme/partnership with Windsor High School. The package includes programme of CPD/training/support; specialist PE teacher, lead and support with planning, lessons and assessment; developing further the leadership and management of our PE lead teacher (2013-14, 2014-2015 and 2015-2016)
  • Approximately £3,000 spent over the last two years on new equipment and renewal of worn equipment including appropriately sized football posts and netball posts.
  • £ 1,000 spent on the Boys’ Dance Project organised by Dudley Performing Arts team
  • £1,008 on markings for netball court and mini tennis courts
  • £1,059 on a skipping workshop run by ‘Skip-Hop’. This involved a 30-60 minute class workshop for years 1 -6 and whole school demo at the end. This included the purchase of high quality skipping ropes for each phase.
  • £1,080 on the ‘Winning Mentality’ personal development programme to improve physical and mental wellbeing delivered by The Phase Trust team alongside the Year 6 class teacher
  • £100 invested in the Change4Life programme
  • £100 on the Street Dance workshop.

Future spending plans 2016 - 2017

  • To review our equipment needs for summer sports and purchase any additional equipment
  • To continue our sports partnership with Windsor High School.
  • To use Sport Premium money to support and develop our community link with Halas Home through physical and well-being activities such as: Christingle making, gardening, care home open day and support of the Halesowen community fun run
  • To offer more sporting opportunities for key stage 1 children and involve more girls in competitions
  • To work with the sports company, Sporting Stars, to organise our own whole school Para-Olympic games event in light of the upcoming Para-Olympics games in Brazil.

The following shows how the Sports Premium is supporting improvement in the quality and delivery of school sport and PE:

PE Impact
By using Sport Premium money to provide high quality PE and a wide range of OSHL provision, we have enabled children to reach higher standards of achievement in PE. Current data shows 92% of children are working at or above age related expectations, with 26% working above or well above age expectations.

Whole School Impact
By using Sport Premium money to provide high quality PE and a wide range of OSHL provision, we have enabled children to reach higher standards of achievement in English and maths. This year, our key stage 2 attainment data was the highest it has ever been: 93% achieved the expected standard in reading (compared to 87% nationally), 97% achieved the expected standard in writing (compared to 83% nationally) and 93% achieved the expected standard in maths (compared to 87% nationally). Progress was equally high as 97% made expected progress in reading, 100% in writing and 93% in maths. A good number also made better than expected progress: 36% in reading, 63% in writing and 20% in maths. Over the last six years, there has been a clear correlation between the increase in OSHL opportunities and the improvement of the standards reached at the end of key stage 2.

Since 2012, year 1 pupils have achieved above the national in the phonics screening check.

At key stage 1, attainment has improved overall to largely either match or exceed national figures.

In foundation stage last year, 68% of pupils achieved a good level of development, compared to 61% nationally.

Current internal data indicates the majority of children are meeting their learning targets and rising to the increased challenge of the new national curriculum.
PE Impact
As a result of effective PE leadership and support within school, and by working closely with specialist PE teachers from Windsor, there is greater teacher confidence and effectiveness in the delivery of PE/sports resulting in improved pupil learning and outcomes.

All PE lessons are at least good and frequently outstanding as evidenced by joint lesson observations with high school specialists.

Our children are able to be and enjoy being active. This is supported in the recent Children and Young People’s Health and Welling Survey, where 95% of our year 5 and 6 children said they found it quite easy or very easy to take part in physical activity and 82% said they enjoy being physically active.

Whole School Impact
Teaching over time in other subjects is at least good and more frequently outstanding, 97% of parents believe that their child is well taught and 96% believe their child makes good progress.

By focusing support on the teaching and learning in PE, we have developed skills which are transferable to all areas of the curriculum, for both staff and pupils. 96% of pupils said their work was marked so they could see how to improve; they are helped to meet their learning targets and they are encouraged to take part in decisions. 100% of children said that the school helps them to work as part of a team and prepare them for when they go to secondary school.

But perhaps, more importantly, children are happy to come to school and learn. 99% of parents felt that their child was happy and felt safe at school. 94% of children said they they felt happy most days or every day and 100% of children felt that the school cared whether they are happy or not.

This is further supported by our Ofsted report: “Pupils enjoy coming to school, and parents value highly not only their children’s progress but the experience the school gives their children of life in the wider world. This is reflected in:
  • the enthusiasm pupils have for their lessons
  • the absence of any bullying or racist language among pupils
  • the rich experience pupils get of the diversity of life in modern Britain as they work closely alongside others from different backgrounds and beliefs.”
PE Impact
PE/games have always had a high profile in the school. At least two hours of curriculum time is allocated to PE/sport. Sports days at both KS1 and 2 are highlights of the academic year.

With the introduction of the new national curriculum and through attendance of the PE ‘teach meet’ sessions, the PE curriculum has been adapted to match new curriculum expectations and the local inter-school competition timetable. Further equipment has been purchased to support the delivery on this new curriculum at Hasbury. Where possible, a creative cross- curricular/ thematic approach has been used to ensure PE/sport is seen as an integral part of the children’s learning that enhances and enriches other parts of the curriculum, including the core subjects.

We have strenuously challenged gender stereotyping in sport. All activities are seen to have equal worth – therefore all children engage in dance, skipping, football and cricket, for instance. We are working to ensure greater parity between girls and boys involvement in physical and sports activities especially at competition level.

Through our curriculum, we encourage children to take a greater responsibility for leading the learning in PE. This is evident as 100% of children said that the school helps them to work as part of a team and prepares them for when they go to secondary school (Children and Young People’s Health and Wellbeing Survey).

Whole School Impact
Children enjoy coming to school because the curriculum is engaging and relevant as evidenced by our improved year on year attendance record, which is now consistently above 96%.

94% of children said they enjoyed their school work on a few, most days or every day (Children and Young People’s Health and Welling Survey).

As children have developed their abilities to take a leading role in PE lessons; this has lead year 6 children organising their own inter-house competitions in netball and rounders. Furthermore, every year, year 5 and 6 children officiate in the key stage 1 and 2 sport days.

PE Impact
Funding has enabled our PE lead teacher to develop and enhance our PE/Sport provision at Hasbury with the support of high school specialists. It has allowed release time to work with staff and monitor and evaluate provision across the school.

Active school governor involvement in PE provision and CPD has raised the profile and priority of ensuring high quality provision is offered across the school.
Using the Sport Premium, we have developed greater community links as our resources, knowledge and expertise have been used to benefit all Halesowen schools. For example: hosting a Change4Life course, hosting a Change4Life festival, hosting the semi-finals of the Halesowen football league and hosting netball matches.

Through our commitment to the development of PE/Sport, we achieved the silver award in the Sainsbury School Games Kite Mark in 2013/14 and gold award in 2014/15 and 2015/16.

Furthermore, we won the ‘School of the Year’ award at the Black Country Sport and Physical Activity Awards 2015 which recognised our use of PE/sport as part of our achievement and improvement strategy.

Whole School Impact
St Margaret’s at Hasbury has raised its profile within the community as a result of its leadership and management of PE/Sport.

The PE lead teacher has been invited to share good practice with other schools more frequently; for example, sharing how we effectively run our Change4Life club at a Change4Life training event; sharing how to gather evidence of the impact of Sport Premium for Ofsted with local schools at Windsor CPD course; hosting and leading the PE Teach Meets and sharing how we lead the PE Teach Meets at the Halesowen Heads’ Conference.

PE Impact
By using Sport Premium money for resources, we have been able to provide a wide range of OSHL provision and extra-curricular opportunities, including:
33 clubs, 21 clubs of which are PE/health related.
Further opportunities include: Smoothie Bike Challenge, Change4Life festival, the Frank Chapman residential, Skip-Hop workshop, Your Sport sponsored shoot out, Handball Festival, Halas Home open day visit, Year 5 playground leader training, Street dance workshop and the Winning Mentality programme.

During 2014/15, we took part in 14 inter-school competitions which included 21 teams in total, both showing an increase from the previous year. More children have been involved including high ability/talented children. However, we have also ensured that our less able, less confident, less active children have also had the opportunity to take part in inter-school competitions. This year, for the first time, 100% of the year 6 children have been involved in inter-school competition. Furthermore, we increased the number of opportunities at key stage 1 by entering two multi-skills competitions. For year 3/4 children, entering tennis and golf tournaments and the Change4Life Festival, opportunities have also increased for them.

Successes in inter-school competitions include:
  • winners of the Windsor rounders tournament
  • joint winners of the Year 3/4 Handball festival
  • winning 4 medals at the Huntingtree athletics competition (1 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze). Of the 28 events, we had 18 finalists.
  • an individual 2nd in the boys Cross Country Championships at Newfield Park
  • a team 3rd for the girls in the Cross Country Championships at Newfield Park
  • a team 2nd for the boys in the Cross Country Championships at Newfield Park
  • joint 3rd in the Year 5/6 Dudley Schools Gymnastics competition
  • semi-finalists in the High 5 netball tournament at Windsor.

Whole School Impact
By setting challenging targets, through close monitoring and targeting and by listening carefully to pupil and parent/carer voice, the participation of pupils in OSHL has been the highest they have ever been. Percentage attendance for 2014/15 was as follows:
99% of pupils from year 1-6 have attended an OSHL club
89% have attended 2 or more OSHL clubs
72% have attended 3 or more OSHL clubs
92% of children at St Margaret’s at Hasbury attend a PE related OSHL club
100% attendance of PE related OSHL clubs by key stage 2 children.

As a result of some of the above initiatives, a greater number of children have taken the lead in extra-curricular activities: for example, a number of year 4 children, as well as year 6 children have organised and run clubs such as skipping, basketball and ‘Exciting Energy’ (keep fit).

PE Impact
The majority of our children are fit and healthy; they enjoy their PE and sport. We rarely have children who do not want to participate in PE/games lessons. This is supported in the recent Children and Young People’s Health and Welling Survey, where 95% of our year 5 and 6 children said they found it quite easy or very easy to take part in physical activity and 82% said they enjoy being physically active.

By providing high quality PE, a wide range of OSHL and a range of lunchtime resources, we have developed the children’s ability to be active and adopt a healthy lifestyle. In the latest parental survey, 98% of parents agreed that the school encourages children to lead a heathy lifestyle.

Whole School Impact
School attendance is now consistently above 96%.

Attendance at clubs/OSHL - three year trend around 96%.

Our children and parents make good choices when it comes to their diet (we have 96% take up of the universal free school meals offer in key stage one) and are not wasteful (we have previously been the number one school for the least waste produced during mealtimes at the Frank Chapman residential centre).

Knowledge and skills have been gained across the school as a result of our involvement in such initiatives as: Winning Mentality and Change4Life.
