“Every child will enjoy increased participation in sporting activities and develop a healthier lifestyle.”

Overall Aim:

“Every child will enjoy increased participation in sporting activities and develop a more healthy lifestyle.”

Wren’s Nest Primary School will use its Sports Premium Grant to improve P.E and Sports participation across the school and will promote healthy lifestyles for all children.

The four main aspects that we will develop are:

 Improving the quality of teaching and learning in P.E and other relevant subject areas.

 Increasing participation in sporting activities and high quality PE lessons for all children.

 Improving pupils’ lifestyles and physical wellbeing

 Developing a leadership role managing sport and well-being across the school.

Improving the quality of teaching and learning

The school will use the Sports Premium grant to raise the standard of teaching and learning in PE. This will be led by the P.E leader who will be professionally trained externally and share her expertise with other staff through in-house coaching. This will be a cost effective way of raising the quality of teaching across the school. Specialist P.E teachers will be used to teach P.E in their respective phases for the majority of sessions. This will underpin progression and continuity of children’s sporting skills.

Following an audit some of the budget will be spent on additional PE resources to enable active participation by all children in all lessons.

Increasing participation in sporting activities and PE

At Wren’s Nest we want all children to exert themselves during PE and understand the benefits of sustained physical activity. Increasing the opportunities to take part in inter-school competition will also raise levels of motivation and enthusiasm.

The Sports Premium grant will support the funding of an increased range of after school clubs for all ages. It will also fund the costs of participation in competitions, including the cost of transport.

Improving pupils’ lifestyles and physical wellbeing

As part of the schools curriculum enrichment programme all children will take part in at least one visit involving a high level of physical activity which will broaden their experience of sport and exercise. Within school each year group will have a focused enrichment day on an aspect of healthy lifestyles. During this time children will learn about healthy diets and lifestyles and have opportunity to participate in new and unfamiliar sporting activities. This will widen their understanding of health and well-being and encourage them to be healthy and active. Healthy lifestyles will also be covered through the P.S.H.E and Science curriculum.

Developing a leadership role managing sport and well-being across the school.

The Sports Premium will also be used to support the development of the role of a Sports and Healthy Living Leader (SHLL). This role is key so that the development of PE and Sport becomes an integrated part of the leadership strategy and good practice can be effectively promoted across the school. The SHLL will be responsible for managing the Sports Premium Funding so that it is used effectively to achieve our aims.

Sustainability of the Sports Premium impact:

The school budget also supports the spend plan and inevitably there are ongoing costs that are an annual financial burden. However the capacity in school to deliver high quality PE is growing and we now have three members of staff who are able to deliver a specialist PE role and support across the school. The impact of this increased expertise is sustainable within our staffing budget. Over the last 3 years the sporting ethos of the school has developed and is now strong with children considering Wren’s Nest as a school that is good at sports. We have achieved the sports GOLD Award this year and take part in a range of competitions, in many sports that Wren’s Nest children had never previously experienced. This ethos and sporting values within the school can be continued and built upon at a relatively low cost making the impact of the sports premium sustainable.
