Husthwaite’s Sport Development & Sport Premium Funding
The government has given all schools additional funding to promote PE in schools. We are using the funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at Husthwaite Primary School.
Funds have been ‘pooled’ within the local cluster of primary schools to employ specialist PE coaches and PE teachers who will work in our school to:
- Provide high quality PE lessons whilst also working alongside teachers in their lessons to increase their subject knowledge and PE skills.
- Provide a range of extra-curricular sports clubs run by existing members of staff and specialist coaches (running, netball, football, multi-skills)
- Coordinate and run cluster sporting competitions and events throughout the academic year. (All cluster sports events cover a range of activities including cross country, tag rugby and multi-skills.)
“Extra funding to support the development of physical education and sport is used very well”. “Leaders have used the funding to provide specialist sports coaching and broaden pupils’ experiences” Ofsted 2019
How are we making sports provision and improvements sustainable for the future?
The standard of curriculum PE has improved and continues to be reviewed (see the current PE curriculum here).
There exists a very positive attitude from children when working with the sports coach which encourages the engagement and inclusion of the children in new activities.
Positive feedback has been given by staff from working with the sports coach and they continue to gain knowledge and experience from workng with this dedicated resource.
The transfer of knowledge gained from specialists is being encouraged through the recording, monitoring and modelling of good practice.
The school offers a full range of sports including an annual dedicated Sports Week linked to the School Games each year. The high quality equipment / resources have resulted in positive experiences of PE for the children.
Links established with local clubs signpost child onto other activities in the community and are displayed on the School Games noticeboard in school.
