Norley Primary School Sports Premium Funding Breakdown 2016/17
Our allocation of Sport Premium money amounted to £8420.
During the year 16/17 we continued to join with the Frodsham and Villages Sports Partnership, costing us £3250. This has meant we can be part of wider, cluster competitions giving our children the chance to compete against schools in the North West.This includes both Key stage 1 and Key stage 2.We had a first prize in gymnastics and the child went on to represent our cluster of schools in a wider competition. We also invested in some high quality coaching for the children in key stage 2 in Rugby, Cricket and Athletics. This was linked with the competitions we took part in through the partnership and meant we got through 2 stages of the rugby competitions and had 3 good teams including 1 girls team, to enter into the cluster cricket competitions, increasing participation in competitive sports. The athletics sessions increased technique and stamina meaning we were runners up in the Tug o War competition and had lots of top 3 places in the District Sports Races and the Delamere Forest Cross Country Run. To further increase the fitness of our children we also updated our Adventure Trim Trail in the school grounds at a cost of £5000 adding a storage box and new equipment to our Buddy box, along with a soft archery set. Gazebos were purchased for the children to shelter in during the summer months as our play areas are south facing, and there were contributions to travel expenses to take part in competitions. The total spent was £11,884 showing how we take investment in sport seriously at Norley CE Primary School.
Norley Primary School Sports Premium Funding Breakdown 2015/16
We have an allocation of Sport Premium money that has amounted to £8305. The following report has been prepared by Mr Hoban, our Sports Co-ordinator: During the year 2015/16 we have spent a total of £496.000. £2000.00 has been spent on joining in with the Frodsham and Villages School Sports Partnership to take part in organised competitions and a further £240.00 has been spent on the Youth Sport Trust membership. These have both allowed the children to take part in a range of different competitive sporting events and experience first-hand the feeling of taking part in competitive events. So far £294.00 has been spent on transport to various competitions where there was no other means to get the children there. This has allowed every pupil in school to attend a sports event during the academic year. Read about the competitions we have taken part in here.
£790.00 has been spent on the staff CPD. This included seeing and taking part in the leading of specialist Gymnastics being taught by Charlie Gym throughout the Spring term. All of the staff have commented on the great benefit that this has brought them and how much confidence they feel this has given them in teaching gymnastics in the future. This has also had a lasting impact on a number of children who have either taken up gymnastics at a club or re-joined after their in school experience. The remaining money has been allocated to CPD for Quicksticks and Mini Red Tennis.
£251.00 was spent on funding the change4life after school club. This encouraged healthy eating, being active and gave children who might not join a sporting club the opportunity to get involved. £1385.00 was used to fund Premier Sport afterschool club. In autumn this involved multi-sports and was aimed at Class 1 and 2. This encouraged the youngest children to become involved in sports. In spring, they offered a netball club for key stage 2. Following this, a number of the girls joined the local netball team in Frodsham. The summer term has seen the opportunity to join their cricket club. This has given children from year 2 upwards the chance to learn a new sport. Many of the children have used this experience and gained the confidence to continue to play this outside of school.
The Government has also introduced a new Pupil Premium to support children who are disadvantaged. The grant covers pupils known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous six years, service children in mainstream schools, looked-after children and pupils eligible for free school meals in any of the previous six years in non-mainstream settings.
To attract the pupil premium, pupils must be aged four and over, and in year groups Reception to Year 11 in mainstream school.
Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit. Currently (and in the past), Norley has chosen to use the funds to provide additional resources and differentiated learning support with our teaching assistants in individual and group settings, or to enable children to access additional educational experiences such as music tuition, visits and events.
In 2015-16, Norley received £4546 for pupil premium. We invested the funds in maths resources, early years resources, to encourage independent learning and additional teaching assistant support for interventions. Pupils exceeded progress expected of their age. This year, we have been allocated £4540 and intend to spend it on literacy support to give pupils the opportunity to exceed in this area.
