Sports Premium

Frisby CE Primary School – PE provision from September 2017 onwards – total sports premium funding will be £17000 for the 2017-18 financial year.

A wide range of PE is delivered at Frisby and we aim to engage and inspire all pupils to play and enjoy a variety of sports. We are using the PE and Sport Premium money to maintain the extremely high standard of teaching in PE and continue to offer a wider range of sporting activities, giving children even more opportunities to engage. These activities are in competitive and non-competitive sports.

We are particularly pleased to be offering the children competitive opportunities in numerous sports including football, cricket, basketball, hockey, tag rugby, athletics, cross country and netball, through our links with local schools and through the Melton and Belvoir Sports Partnership. This and other inter-school sporting activities will be part funded using the Sports Premium money.

We also continue to employ an external sports coach to lead a range of games during curriculum time with children throughout the school and during Friday lunchtimes he also runs different sports clubs and sports leadership training for pupils in Key Stage 2. We also use our links with local sports clubs including Leicester Riders, Leicestershire County Cricket Club and Leicester Tigers to further enhance our provision.

In addition to increasing the range of opportunities available to the children, we are also extending our CPD training for all staff. We have our own specialist PE subject leader who continues to deliver high quality CPD to all staff and we will be supplementing this with external training through local sports clubs. In 2017-18 external staff training and continues professional development will be sourced and delivered on invasion games and orienteering. We will also purchase a package of support from the Melton and Belvoir Sports partnership (cost £1000) which allows our staff and pupils to access an even greater range of sports and activities, including Big Moves, Dance Equation and sports competitions such as Dodgeball.

We place great value on sporting activities and pupil involvement and have an excellent reputation in the community for our provision in this area. Not only for the social, health and well-being outcomes but also, for the fun element of participating.

During the 2017-18 academic year, part of our sports premium funding will be allocated to improving our outdoor play area, with fitness equipment and better all weather surfacing which will allow the currently grassed area to be used throughout the year.

We will use the outcomes of the staff and pupil surveys to measure increased participation in PE and extra-curricular activities, as well as, potential impact in terms of pupil’s focus across the curriculum.
