School Sport Premium
The Sport Teaching Assistant
The Sport TA plans and leads selected PE lessons and supports teachers in others to broaden the range of sports on offer to pupils. All teaching staff and some TAs are in these lessons which therefore provides good training for them which ensures sustainability.
The Sport TA accompanies pupils when participating in interschool or other competitions/events/matches. This means that more teams are trained and we enter more events, increasing participation. The impact of competitive sport is widely acknowledged to develop confidence, teamwork and self- esteem. These attributes are then reflected within school in areas such as behaviour for learning which impacts on attainment.
The Sport TA plays football at lunchtimes, modelling the rules and sportsmanship of the game – a great increase in participation here!
Impact is healthier pupils and increased engagement in sporting activiites
The gym coach provides specialist coaching and an after school club – this also provides training to school staff (including the Sport TA) and increases participation in sport.
Impact: more children engaged, opens doors for pupils who may not enjoy other sports, thereby increasing fitness levels
Following swimming lessons in Spring 2018, 18 of the 29 year 6 pupils met the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters, using a range of strokes effectively and able to perform safe self rescue in different water based situations.
