PE and Sports Premium 2017-2018

Cam Woodfield Infant School   PE and Sports Premium 2017 - 2018


Key achievements to date:

Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

Use of Atlas Sports to increase teaching staff knowledge and skills in teaching PE.


Hiring of Skippy John to promote skipping across the school.


Popularity of after school clubs led by CYG.

Competitive sports with other schools.


Offering more after school clubs so that all children can participate.


Monitoring of achievement at the end of school year.



Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety

Please complete all of the below*:

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?

The children are very keen to take part in playing active games at playtimes with the Sports Coaches.


The children loved running around the playground, many cheered when we said we would continue this.



Increase the space available (particularly during the winter) so that children have space to run/be more active.








Further ‘crazes’ to be introduced to playtimes to keep the children’s interest in being more active.


Ensure equipment is ready to be used by the Sports Coaches to get the children more active at playtimes.

Staff to gain knowledge and skills in teaching PE via the use of Atlas Sports coaches

Hire 2 Atlas Sports coaches to teach PE to all children in school on a weekly basis.


Teachers to observe the teaching and then repeat the lesson the following week.


Teachers to assess the children whilst Atlas Sports teach the lesson to the children.


A staff audit has taken place linked to the teaching of Atlas Sports. 66% of staff rated the lessons as very good and 34% rated them as good.


Comments made by teachers include:

  • Makes it look easier. Lots of warm-up ideas. Ways of using apparatus when the children are in pairs.
  • It has given me more ideas for games and activities to use.
  • Helped with quick, fun warm-up games. I am confident in using new equipment.
  • Been really useful watching how they teach different skills and given me the confidence to use these in my own teaching. It has helped me in organising the PE lesson.
  • Ideas about how to ‘hook’ the children into each skill/activity. How to pitch it appropriately at each age group.
  • Good ideas for gymnastics – expectations of skills.



Consider how we can use Atlas Sports once the class structure has changed in September 2018

2016 – 2017 Allocation £8055


What is Sports Premium?

Sports Premium is paid to schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. A school of 17 or more children get a basic grant of £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil. This means that for this academic year we received £8,495. This figure is based on the number of pupils on roll in the January census.

It is paid to school in two payments:

7/12 (£4,955) on 29/10/16

5/12 (£3,540) on 27/4/17


How can school spend the Sports Premium?

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions



How is this spent at Cam Woodfield Infant School?

We hire 2 qualified sports coaches from Atlas Sports. One works with EYFS on a Wednesday morning and one works with KS1 all day on a Friday. Each class receives up to an hour of high quality PE. The teachers then use the content that is taught to consolidate the children’s skills in another PE lesson during the week. We also have access to ‘The Teacher’s Coaching Zone’ free of charge on the Atlas Sports website. This offers us an online resource full of high quality lesson plans and videos to support primary school teachers delivering PE. Each and every lesson plan includes:

  • Differentiated Activities
  • Learning Objectives (Low, Middle & High Ability)
  • 3 Cross Curricular Links
  • Opportunities to Measure Success
  • Small Sided Games
  • One of the sports coaches also offers a weekly after school club.

Cost Breakdown

Per day of Atlas Sports coach: £139 (37 Fridays - £5,143 from 9th September to 14th July)

½ day of Atlas Sports coach: approx. £2,400

After-school club: £16 per week for 32 weeks: £512


Total expenditure: £8,055

2015 – 2016 Allocation £8510

How to use the PE and Sports Funding

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.

For example, you can use your funding to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

Recommendations from an OFSTED report on PE Funding in October 2014

Schools should:

  • ensure that their strategic plans for using the new funding include clear, measurable targets for improvement
  • clearly show how school leaders will evaluate the impact that the premium is having on improving PE and sports provision
  • regularly monitor the work of specialist PE teachers and sports coaches to ensure that their teaching and coaching are consistently good
  • ensure that the professional development of staff is systematically planned and tailored to the individual needs of teachers and classroom assistants
  • monitor the impact of professional development to ensure a lasting legacy of consistently good teaching of PE
  • identify ‘non-participants’ in extra-curricular sport and provide additional activities to encourage their immediate and longer-term participation in sport and physical activity
  • introduce activities specifically aimed at enabling their most able pupils to achieve high standards in PE and sport
  • forge links with a wider range of external sports clubs to achieve sustainable ways of engaging all pupils in physical activity and sport
  • work closely with parents and carers and local health agencies to promote the health and well-being of all pupils, especially those who are overweight or obese.

Government departments should:

  • provide further advice to schools about how to engage with health agencies and parents to promote pupils’ health and well-being, especially concerning those pupils who are overweight or obese.

Ofsted will:

  • continue to evaluate the use of the premium in section 5 inspections, focusing particularly on how effectively school leaders monitor the impact of new funding over time on increasing pupils’ participation, improving performance in PE and sport, and promoting health and well-being.

What OFSTED said about us

“Pupils enjoy taking part in a wide range of sporting and competitive events. These include tag rugby, archery and swimming”.

“The school has made good use of the additional primary sports grant by employing sports coaches to train staff and to widen the range of sporting activities on offer to all pupils. As a result, more pupils are enjoying and achieving in physical participation and competitive sporting events”.

Plans for the coming year

The Year 1 children have been to Forest Green Rovers and had a really fun time. This was followed up with Forest Green Rovers coming in to school to work with the Year 2 children. The Sports Funding is used to pay for the coaches to and back from visits

Someone employed at lunchtimes to lead games and activities. Gradually training the Midday Supervisors and ‘Little Leaders’.

  • Sarah Shaw (dance specialist)
  • Skippy John
  • Forest Green Rovers
  • PE specialists according to the area being covered
  • Inter school sports (transport)
  • Subject Leader release to plan . do observations
  • Courses for teachers (dependent on need)
  • After school football club

2014 – 2015 Allocation £8425


A lot of work has been done with an Independent PE consultant who has helped the PE Subject Leader work through:

  • An Action plan
  • Ways to track percentages of children on track or above national expectations
  • Potential links with local clubs and organisations
  • Scheme of work overviews
  • PE provision
  • Clubs that children are currently attending
  • Staff views and staff confidence

As a result we have decided not to use Super Stars this year but to commission specialists where needed. We have already had Skippy John in for a day which has inspired children from all year groups to skip at playtimes. This has extended to home as many have bought and bring in their own skipping ropes.

A dance specialist has now come in on a number of occasions. She has worked with all of the class teachers to develop exciting schemes of works for their topics and helped them to develop their skills in teaching dance.

An archery taster day has been held and we shall be extending this to an after school club with the aim of broadening children’s experiences.

The Subject Leader is looking in to developing Playground Sports Leaders.

We are also looking in to giving the children experiences of watching sports games elsewhere and for the children to go to other schools to play games with other children.

The Subject Leader is being released to do some observations of the other class teachers with the PE Consultant.

2013 – 2014 Allocation £8745
