Sports Premium Funding

June 23rd 2016 Update.

This is the Sports Premium plan for the September 2016 - July 2017 School Year:

Our providers, Project Sport, will be in school every Tuesday and Friday afternoon to work with children in Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. They will work with children in Reception every Wednesday for the first half-term of each term. The focus for the teacher education will be to develop these areas:

Autumn Term 2016: Dance

Spring Term 2017: Gymnastics

Summer Term 2017: Outdoor Education

The teachers will observe the coaches teaching the children. This will move onto joint teaching with the coach and then the teacher will teach a lesson and receive feedback from the coach.

The schedule for extra-curricular activities provided by Project Sport will be as follows:

Autumn: Rugby (KS1) / Netball (KS1) / Archery (Y3/4) / Girls Football (Y5/6)

Spring: Football (KS1) / Cheerleading (KS1) / Dodgeball (Y3/4) / Girls Football (Y5/6)

Summer: Athletics (KS1) / Cricket (KS1) / Rounders (Y5/6) / Athletics (Y3/4)

We've asked the coaches to promote the extra-curricular activities in two ways. Firstly, by offering a taster session in the PE lessons of the targetted group shortly before the application letters are sent out. Secondly, by giving a short assembly in each case to encourage children to sign up for the activities.

We will shortly be confirming the schedule for Street Dance, but we are likely to continue this on the three lunchtimes that we have used this year.

2015-2016 Sports Premium Information

The government is providing funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. St. Joseph’s have been allocated approximately £9270 of funding.

We conducted a two-question Family Questionnaire on the Sports Premium that was carried out in December 2015. We received just over a hundred responses out of a total of 236 places provided by the funding. The responses were as follows:

1) How enjoyable has your child found the club that they attended:

Excellent        74                Good            25           Satisfactory          9               Unsatisfactory   0


2) How do you rate the quality of the coaching:


Excellent    73                   Good        24            Satisfactory       11            Unsatisfactory  0

Comments from the parents:

"The clubs are brilliant. My child has gained so much from having privilege of being part of the Sports Club'

' My child has gained confidence and his skills have improved massively'


'Excellent opportunity for our children. Thank you.'
