Sports Premium Plan - 2020-21
Frisby C of E Primary School - Sports Premium funding for the 2020-21 academic year will be £16990. Planning how to spend this allocation has been very flexible due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions placed on us by the various lockdowns and guidance. A high proportion of the money, we plan to spend on resurfacing under our outdoor play equipment and repairs and updates to the equipment in this area (£6000), while we have also allocated (£1200) to membership of the Melton and Belvoir Sports Partnership and the remainder of the money (£9790) is be put towards the replacement of the old metal equipment next to the playground. In a normal academic year, our sports provision would look like what is set out in the the 2019-20 statement below and we would aim to get back to this model as soon as restrictions allow.
As of August 2021, the resurfacing and repairs to our play equipment has been completed, allowing for pupils to have full use of this area for fitness and exercise while our membership of the Melton and Belvoir Sports Partnership allowed year 1 and 2 to benefit from gymnastics from an expert coach, while Key Stage 2 improved their cricket skills and understanding through Chance to Shine Sessions with Leicestershire County Cricket Club. Some elements of the Melton and Belvoir Sports Partnership membership have been rolled over into thee 2021-22 academic year.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, school swimming was unable to take place in the 2019-20 or 2020-21 school years. This will return in 2021-22 and data around Year 6 being able to swim 25m and the range of strokes that can be used will be published at this point.
Sports Premium Plan - 2019-20
Frisby C of E Primary School – PE provision from September 2019 onwards – total sports premium funding will be £17090 for the 2019-20 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. These sessions currently take place on Mondays in the current academic year. 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 2019-20 external staff training and continues professional development will be sourced and delivered on sports leadership and cricket. We will also purchase a package of support from the Melton and Belvoir Sports partnership (cost £1200) which allows our staff and pupils to access an even greater range of sports and activities, including Big Moves, Key Stage 1 Gymnastics Sessions, Mini Olympics for Key Stage 1 and additional sports competitions such as Futsol.
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. One example of this is the Frisby PTA Fun Run which will again take place in March with races for children in pre-school up to sixth form and an adult race.
