PE and Sport Premium

P.E. and Sport Premium – 2020/21 (Income Received:- £17,666)

 

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 many have a swimming or hydrotherapy session. Additionally pupils take part in physical activities as part of the PSD programme. We run additional weekly 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. Many 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, cross site events, blocks of individual sport specific focus sessions, or working with mainstream pupils from local schools. Previous examples have included the West Yorkshire Primary Panathlon, Wakefield Primary School’s Boccia tournaments, table cricket, 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.

 

We have focussed the use of our Sport Premium this year on enabling our pupils to engage in regular physical activity by providing targeted activities to meet the very differing needs of our pupils, raising attainment in swimming, and providing a broad range of sports and activities. Participation in competitive sport has been limited due to the Covid Pandemic. Use of the premium:-

  • 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.
  • 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 an external sport coach to work with classes and groups of pupils throughout the year.
  • Enabling a number of pupils who are able to access Horse Riding sessions on the Castleford Site.
  • Using the funding to support online sport festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages.

 

IMPACT 2020-2021

 

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 a significant impact on improving the quality and value of the provision for our pupils:-

 

  • The continued employment (working additional hours) of an external sport coach has enabled new skills and ideas to be introduced into the curriculum (including dance workshops, fitness sessions and yoga), extending teacher knowledge and confidence and resulting in improved pupil outcomes.
  • The external sports coach has enabled a high number of children to take part in cross site virtual competitions and ‘club type’ provision during the Covid Pandemic. Activities have included gymnastics, athletics, multi-sports, football, Primary Penathlon, Fitness Club and Boccia,
  • 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, with a number having developed the confidence to mount and ride the horse.

  

Swimming Attainment

All pupils take part in the swimming programme at Kingsland, either through access to local swimming pools or through hydrotherapy sessions. Very few of our pupils are able to meet the national curriculum requirement due to their physical, medical and learning difficulties. However, progress is monitored and recorded for all 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. The focus of the provision is to equip pupils with sufficient skills to be able to swim as a leisure/fitness activity and develop skills that will keep them safe in water.

  • 9 of our pupils have become independent swimmers this year
  • All of our pupils have developed greater confidence in the water and made significant progress, whether that be in needing fewer swimming aids, being able to enter the water confidently or happily moving their limbs in the hydrotherapy pool.

 

Kingsland will ensure that the impact is sustainable through maintaining and developing the current provision funded through the Sports Premium.

 

2021/22

The Sport Premium will be used to:

  • Purchase 2 outdoor trampolines for EYFS and Lower School pupils on the Castleford Site to increase their access to physical activity.
  • Employ an additional P.E. specialist who is a qualified swimming instructor experienced in working with pupils who have severe learning difficulties to support the school swimming programme and provide in water swimming instruction.
  • 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.
  • Enabling a number of pupils on the Castleford Site to access Horse Riding sessions.
  • Using the funding to support online sport festivals and competitions for pupils of all ages.
