Sports Premium

Physical Education at St. Paul’s C of E Primary School

Use of the Sports Premium Funding to enhance Physical Education at St. Paul’s C of E Primary School

The additional sports funding of £9,750 for 2015/16 allowed us to promote our School Value of ‘Health and Wellbeing’ through giving our pupils the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of extra-curricular sports clubs and sporting events throughout the school year. Between them, our PE team, comprising a specialist gym and dance instructor and specialist outdoor sports coach, ran eleven different clubs each week at lunchtimes and after school, all of which were offered free of charge to pupils, including dance, dodgeball, team building, cheerleading, football (girls and boys), running, athletics, rounders and scatterball. To further support our ethos of inclusion, we have monitored participation to our extra-curricular clubs and checked uptake and attendance of particular pupil groups to ensure that all groups of children are given opportunities to take part. The after school extra-curricular clubs have been attended by almost 300 pupils with many pupils attending more than one club. These clubs are offered in addition to the 2 sessions of PE per week (one hour of outdoor Games and one hour of Gymnastics / Dance) that all pupils from Y1-6 receive during curriculum time. In addition, our class teachers benefit from observing high-quality PE provision throughout the year as part of their continuing professional development. Our Physical Education programme plays an important role in helping us to fulfil our vision and values.  As a result of high quality PE provision and the wealth of extra-curricular opportunities available, over 90% of pupils have made at least expected progress in PE over the last year, virtually all pupils have met age-related expectations and a growing number are exceeding age-related expectations.

The PE team enhances the school’s PSHE curriculum by contributing to whole school assemblies focusing specifically on children’s achievements inside and outside of school; awards are presented to children for demonstrating excellence in their learning and for positive sporting conduct. Through the work of our Year 6 Sports Play Leaders, younger children are encouraged to learn and play a variety of playground games. This helps them to grow in confidence, build friendships and develop quality independent play. The Change 4 Life programme has also been introduced to particularly engage specific children during lunchtime. Through involvement with the local community, e.g. performing at a local Day Centre, pupils develop a greater awareness of the world around them. As part of our Healthy Schools status we encourage and educate the children on the importance of a healthy, balanced diet and positive lifestyle. The PE team promotes our sports provision through providing weekly updates for parents on the children’s sporting achievements.

Sporting & Competitive Achievements

Through our competitive sports programme, children are encouraged to “Aim High” by giving 100% to their sport, to have fun, build relationships, learn from each other, develop self-esteem and improve their personal skills. During 2015/16, 100% of children took part in an intra-school sporting event and KS2 children took part in nine different external sporting events including cross country, girls and boys football tournaments, dance festival, ERPSSA football league, district sports and dodgeball. In 2015, our girls’ team were the overall winners of the ‘Woking Football in the Community’ tournament, while the boys’ team were semi-finalists. Since 2013 a dance crew has been entered the Surrey Schools Dance festival at the International School Cobham. The quality of our children’s routines has been given special commendation by the organisers of this non-competitive event. During 2015, all Year 2 children took part in a multi-skills inter-school event.

In January 2015 we were awarded the School Games Mark (Silver Level) – for commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport. We are now working towards achievement of the Gold Level award.

Partnership Work

Our school is part of the Elmbridge and Runnymede Primary Schools Sports Association which meets once a term to plan competitions for the children and share good practice. During the meetings a wide range of topics are discussed including the use of the Sports Premium and the new curriculum. We have found this beneficial as it has given our children the opportunity to participate regularly in inter-school competitions e.g. District Sports and cross-country events.  We have continued to extend our links within the community including Woking Football in the Community, Instep street dance, Bu’Sen Martial Arts School and Staines Swimming Club.
