Summary of SFG spending

 

Objectives in spending SFG:

 

To fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of pupils, so that they develop healthy lifestyles

To provide a range of experiences to extend children’s participation in and enjoyment of physical activity and sport.

 

Summary of spending and actions taken:

 

The main expense has been providing the children with the opportunity to take part in extra curriculum activities. This has improved the children’s performance in tournaments, provided pupils with a focus at lunch times and assisted in pupils making healthy choices to improve their healthy life style. By being part of the Redbourn sports partnership, staff have developed their CPD in dance and are up to date with the latest developments in P.E. The children have benefited from Bikeability and dance coaching. We have developed some of our year four pupils into sports leader and the school has taken part in tournaments with other lower schools. Year four pupils are going to take part in transfer sporting activities to assist in their transfer to middle school.

We have provided swimming in Key Stage 2 for a period of twelve weeks with three instructors.  This year the children will be assessed and given the opportunity to purchase badges to mark their success.

We have subscribed to “5 a day TV” for a year, this has proved to be a great success.  This involves the children taking part in a 5 minute exercise program daily, this has inspired children to keep fit and provides much enjoyment. Maintaining and renewing equipment has enabled us to keep pupils and staff safe and ensure resources are available for teaching good quality lessons.

 

Outcomes to date:

 

Key Stage 1 and 2 have all had the opportunity to express an interest in taking part in different lunch time activities throughout the year. The children have been involved in choosing some of the lunch time clubs which have been on offer. Behaviour issues have improved with children, who can find lunch time play challenging, when they attend the sports club.

The children’s skills and confidence in swimming have improved.

Playtimes are enriched and behaviour is of a good standard.

Staff are supported and given opportunities to develop by Redbourn sports partnership.

Year four have had the opportunity to develop skills in leadership which has built confidence and skills in P.E.  The transfer events ensure pupils mix with other children who will be attending their middle school and may even be in their new class.

 

Further actions:

Apply for the ‘Sainsbury Kite Mark’ in P.E (with the support of Redbourn Sports Partnership)

Keep some funding from this year and next to provide an enhanced trim trail and climbing area for the whole school (with the support and funds from Petals)

Provide catch up swimming lessons for next year’s Year four who did not meet the expectation when year three complete their twelve week swimming program next year.

Investigate more opportunities to offer extra curriculum sporting activities in school.

Ensure we get ‘Good Value for money’ from schemes we buy into.
