Sports Funding 2013

                     

The Government has provided us with £9330 in additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (P.E) and sports in primary school.

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but we have the freedom to choose how to do this. 

Our current P.E provision provides children with two sessions (2 hours) of taught physical education lessons per week – one indoor and one outdoor.  These currently follow the Val Sabin scheme of work to ensure coverage, progression and extension for more able children.    

In addition to this, Year 3 children train as playground buddies; lunchtime supervisors encourage children to play games and we have a "game of the week".  

All classes have the opportunity to work with external sports coaches, enabling the children to try a range of sport and game activities to broaden their experiences and skills. This initiative will not only develop the children’s skills but also provide professional development for the teachers in these classes through part team teaching.  We will measure the impact of this initiative on the children’s learning and progress, the teacher's CPD and collect a variety of qualitative and quantitative evidence. This year external coaches will be providing lessons in the following;

The feedback from children and staff has been positive and demonstrates an impact on the children’s ability to work together.

We extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity for some children to work with visitors.  These have included an Indian Dance Workshop and The Angmering school disability dance group.  

Forest schools and Beach schools

We provide outdoor learning opportunities with our Forest school and Beach school activities.  Our Year 3 children have the opportunity to attend our residential visit to Lodge Hill where they take part in various outdoor activities including orienteering and shelter building. 

                        

We have members of staff who are trained in delivering Beach school sessions and we regularly provide opportunities for the children to visit the beach. These sessions are sometimes for whole classes and sometimes for certain children. We feel it is important for children to experience the beach all year round and take them there during the winter as well as in the summer months.

 

   

  

All Year groups visit the beach and we regularly have the Sussex Wildlife Trust in to teach children about the classification of beach wildlife and plants and how to be respectful of the environment.

After School clubs

We have a comprehensive range of after school clubs led by qualified sports coaches which provide opportunities for the following activities:

Football (Chelsea Football in the community)

Gymnastics (Premier Sport)

Bee-fit (Bee fit)

Karate (Sama Karate organisation) 

Dance (Solitaire School of Dance)

We have also funded places on these clubs in order to encourage certain children to develop a healthy lifestyle.
