PE and Sport Premium


P.E. and Sport Premium


PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of Kingsland School. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of our pupils and through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others while developing their physical skills and well being. There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development.


All pupils at Kingsland have a dedicated 1 hour PE session each week and a swimming or hydrotherapy session. Additionally Key Stage 2 pupils take part in physical activities as part of the PSD programme. We run additional PE sessions using external coaches on both sites with activities including Boccia, Maypole Dancing, Dance and multi-Sports. Pupils on our Castleford site with the most complex needs take part in weekly horse riding sessions and our pupils at Stanley with complex physical needs take part in the MATP programme both within school and through competing at events with other schools. An increasing number of pupils take part in a range of additional opportunities that are provided throughout the year for pupils to engage in cooperative, team or competitive sport. This is facilitated through stand alone participation events, blocks of individual sport specific focus sessions, or working with mainstream pupils from local schools. Examples include the West Yorkshire Primary Panathlon, Wakefield Primary School’s Boccia tournament from which a team represented Kingsland at the West Yorkshire finals, Tag Rugby, Athletics and multi-sports events during which pupils compete with and against other Outwood Together, Wakefield and Yorkshire schools. We also hold an annual sports day at the end of the summer term at the school.


The school is constantly seeking ways to develop sporting provision and pupils’ physical skills.


In April 2013, the Government announced new funding (Sport Premium) for physical education (PE) and sport to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at School and help pupils to develop healthy lifestyles. Kingsland will receive £17,445 Sport Premium this year and we are using this to improve the quality of PE and Sport provision in the following ways:

  • Employing an additional TA and a P.E. specialist who are qualified swimming instructors experienced in working with pupils who have severe learning difficulties to support the school swimming programme and provide in water swimming instruction. This will enable all pupils in Y5 & Y6, and some younger pupils to access swimming sessions at the local pools.
  • Employing a TA with P.E. qualifications for additional hours each week to support the P.E. provision with a particular focus upon increasing extra-curricular and social participation.
  • Commissioning external sports coaches to work with classes and groups of pupils throughout the year.
  • Increasing the number of pupils who are able to benefit from Horse Riding sessions on the Castleford Site.
  • Using the funding to support regular sport festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages.
    IMPACT 2018-2019

Ofsted (March 2018) found that “Additional funding, including the primary physical education (PE) and sport premium, is used well to increase pupils’ participation in PE and sport. As a result, pupils are more visible and included in the wider community and, importantly, they develop the confidence, skills and qualities to be successful and resilient.”


The Sport Premium has had a significant impact on improving the quality and value of the provision for our pupils:-


  • The employment of a swimming specialist has enabled pupils to develop their swimming skills and enjoyment of the water at a local swimming pool. Many pupils now become independent swimmers, with others developing confidence in the water. 9 Year 6 pupils left Kingsland as independent swimmers this year which is a tremendous achievement, with an additional 5 younger pupils having already achieved this. In addition 2 pupils achieved the Swim Safe Open Water standard when they visited and swam in Salford Quays.
  • The continued employment of a number of sports specialists has enhanced performances not only in school but has also enabled a high number of children to represent the school at inter school competitions. The greater level of extra-curricular involvement has enabled the school to retain The School Games Mark at Gold Standard, which shows recognition of the schools commitment to develop performance and competition across the school and into the community.
  • The continued employment of external sports coaches has enabled new skills and ideas to be introduced into the curriculum (including dance workshops, cricket and football skills sessions), extending teacher knowledge and confidence and resulting in improved pupil outcomes.
  • Events/competitions held at sports centres, Kingsland and neighbouring schools that pupils have taken part in have included gymnastics, athletics, multi-sports, football, Primary Penathlon and Boccia with pupils competing against their mainstream peers at Kingsland and representing Wakefield in a West Yorkshire competition.   
  • Pupils with the most complex physical needs take part in the MATP (Motor Activities Training Programme) and take part in activities alongside pupils from other schools.
  • Pupils with the most complex needs at Castleford have been enabled to take part in Horse Riding.
    Kingsland will ensure that the impact is sustainable through maintaining and developing the current provision funded through the Sports Premium.
