Once again this year the school will be receiving the Sports Premium Funding from the Government.
In March 2013 the Government announced a package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million in each of the years 2014/15 and 2015/16 to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools. In early February 2014 the Prime Minister confirmed this funding would now be extended to 2020 which is excellent news for everyone at Scole.
This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding is allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
Schools have flexibility on how they use the funding but it should be used to increase and improve the PE and sport offered to pupils. As you can imagine, we are extremely excited about the sports funding here at Scole as we are committed to providing 2 hours high quality PE for all our pupils and we already hold the afPE Quality Mark with distinction and in 2015 we were chosen as the only rural primary in England to star in a number of videos filmed for Sport England. We thoroughly believe this will enable us to continue to place PE high on the agenda at Scole school and in 2015-16 the monies enabled us to ensure 100% of pupils across KS1 & 2 attended at least one extra curricular sporting opportunity and attended at least one cluster sporting event.

- Impact Statement and analysis – Sport Premium Funding Update Aug17
- Ongoing Development plan – Completed plan to be added in new academic year.
- Lunchtime and after school opportunities – greater number of pupils have been able to enjoy and experience extracurricular clubs. These have links to sports outside school and have been well received by pupils and parents alike. 100% of pupils in KS1 & KS2 have attended a after school or lunchtime club in 2016-17 which reaches our PE Development plan target for the second year running. In KS2 the number of pupils attending 3+ extra curricular experiences (cohort numbers permitting) has risen greatly this year ( see impact statement link above) and this has been due to the wide variety and amount of experiences available to pupils; these have ranged from cricket to ballet, cheerleading to basketball.
- Cluster Activities – From KS1 and KS2 100% of pupils will have been able to participate in a relevant cluster activity this year. In KS1 this has included three events, KS1 dance and multi skills festivals plus the end of year sportsday picnic.One of our sports teams have also reached Partnership finals this year.
- Activities to promote healthy active lifestyles – New equipment has been well received and are being used regularly at lunchtime. This was chosen and promoted with help from our MSA team who helped to choose the equipment. The equipment is regularly updated and we are looking to train a MSA to lead specific activities in 2017-18.
- Provision of High Quality PE for all students – We are particularly proud of our high quality PE at Scole. Having been awarded the association for PE Quality Mark with Distinction in 2014/15 we have also gone on to be involved in filming 4 short videos for Sport England as well as being involved in gymnastics filming for the Norfolk PE Assessment tracker. Teachers have also had the opportunity to watch lessons of their choice taught by Mrs Goldsmith to ensure our provision remains of a high standard and has sustainability. For the third year running we have also been awarded the School Games Gold award.
- New activities this year have including a karate taster day, Bollywood & Bhangra dancing experience for the whole school and a skateboarding day which was an brilliant success. Part of our success is linked to the range of after school clubs which we run and the new ways we enhance our PE curriculum. This year clubs have included street dance, lacrosse, fencing and archery plus the usual favourites. Our curriculum has been enhanced by –
- Tennis, athletics, boxfit, multi skills, karate, ballet and zumba coaches visiting and teaching in classes.
- New areas of activity in curriculum PE – volleyball and yoga with badminton to be taught in 2017-18.
