Statement on Sport Premium Funding at Polperro School 2019-20

The government currently provides additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

•the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
•the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
•increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
•broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
•increased participation in competitive sport

For the year 2019-20 our Sport Premium funding is £17,300 and has been allocated to the following:

• Supply cover for the release of Head of School (PE specialist)/PE Lead one afternoon weekly to teach high quality PE across the school, teach alongside other members of staff to improve practice, observe teachers teaching PE and provide constructive feedback
• Release time to develop a rolling programme and provide opportunities for gifted and talented students to develop coaching skills
• Subscription to Arena which provides opportunities for high quality CPD
• Subscription to Looe Academy Sports Support which provides opportunities for cross school competition and taster sessions
• Increased participation in inter school competitions through the funding of transportation
• Provide training for football club, running club and alternative sports club leaders
• Purchase of an external sports coach half termly to introduce pupils to a wider range of alternative sporting activities
• Provide additional lunchtime supervision which allows for the use of the climbing frame and monthly challenge competitions, and for the support of our year 5 Sugar Snaps in organising of Sugar Smart games during lunchtime
• Purchase of new PE equipment and huff and puff
• TA PE specialists employed to run afternoon PE 'club' sessions targeted at disaffected pupils 
• Sugar Smart training for Y5 pupils
• Sugar Smart equipment for lunchtime games

Impact of the sports funding at Polperro School 2019/2020

The impact of the sports funding is evident through:

• minimum of 30 minutes of activity per day. Daily Activity Menu created to enable children to monitor their minutes.
• Wider range of sports clubs offered with increased pupil participation rates in these clubs
• Increased pupil participation in cross school competition including cross country, dodgeball, futsal, football, netball, and improved successes in these competitions
• Increased SMSC skills through children taking the role of playground leaders and through Upper Key Stage 2 children taking responsibility for running events and leading activities such as Wake and  Shake
• Increased confidence in the teaching of PE by existing staff with increased knowledge of specific skills (in particular in gymnastics, dance and orienteering). This will lead to sustainable improvements in provision and experience for pupils in years to come
• Broad and balanced PE curriculum which is fully inclusive
• Pupil conferencing identifying that pupils increasingly feel they lead a healthy and active lifestyle

A full breakdown of the spending can be found on our Sports Premium Report below which reflects our intention to use the funding to ensure sustainable improvements in the quality of provision and opportunities for our children to support them in achieving a healthier life style.

PE Lead, Mrs Anthea Hillman, and sports Governor, Mr Simon White, are responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of the funding and reports are made to the Full Governing Body meetings termly.
