Sport Premium

Overview
Every year the Government provides additional funding to drive sporting excellence and supplement physical education (PE) in primary schools. The spirit of the funding is to create even more British gold medals in international sporting competitions.

Bar Hill’s provision for sport and PE 2016/2017 was £11,750 with £9,200 from Sport Premium grant.

The provision was spent on:

£8,500 for external agencies delivering sport enrichment (not PPA) to drive up standards across the school.

£750 for transportation to sporting events around the county

£2500 for sports equipment and hire of the community astroturf

This has made huge impact:

  1. We achieved the School Games Mark Bronze Award having met all of the criteria and have moved half-way towards our Silver Award.
  2. Although all of our teams have been successful by reaching the top 30% in all competitions in our region, we have seen that the extra attention to running has led to extraordinary results including gold medals in every running competition in 2016/2017.  For the first time in our school’s history we achieved first place in the county cross country with 15 seconds ahead of the second place team. We can confidently point to Olympic excellence in our running which started in 2014/2015.
  3. We entered much younger participants than ever before with Year 3 runners, for example, entering competitions and placing third in the county and Year 2 participants taking part in Year 3 competitions.
  4. While achieving successful results, we are seeing young people developing their talent with improved results at competitions over the last two years for individual children – for example, in cross country each young person who took part in more than one competition significantly improved their place and time with each subsequent competition.  Our teams, as well, went from 6th in the county in 2014/2015 to fourth in 2015/2016 to first in 2016/2017.
  5. Improved confidence of teaching across the PE framework and through competitions with other local schools – this is seen in significantly improved quality of lessons.
  6. Revised scheme of work to deliver new curriculum
  7. A higher emphasis on high quality PE provision across the school using external leaders rooted within our community in order to push Bar Hill School as a proud sporting feature within our locality.
  8. All children successfully took part in the Bikeability scheme in Year 5.
  9. All children achieved the required standard in swimming in Key Stage 2
  10. At no cost, we also have developed strong partnerships this year – in particular, we have established links with Cambridge United Football Club and Astra Zeneca. Together we worked on a research project with the aim of combining the teaching of PE and Science

Bar Hill’s provision for 2017/2018 is £9,135.00

This will be spent as follows:

£7,900 for external agencies delivering sport enrichment (not PPA) to drive up standards across the school.

£750 for transportation to sporting events around the county

£1035 for sports equipment and hire of the community astroturf. 

Expected outcomes from this year’s expenditure:

  • Secondary standards of PE leadership in a primary context in order to create Olympic quality sporting achievements across the range of sports offered at the school.
  • Creation of a whole school House system with scheduled competitions throughout the year to ensure all children enjoy opportunities to compete.
  • Expansion of the gold medal wins in running events to include other sports from the curriculum
  • Mastery level sporting achievements reaching the more able with targeted enrichment, particularly in Year 3 and Year 4.
  • Greater enjoyment and achievement amongst those challenged by “physical literacy”
  • Successful achievement of Silver School Games Mark
  • Wider participation in fixtures unhindered by transport challenges
