Charlton Kings Junior School
Sports Premium Funding
2016 17 Annual Report
The Government has provided additional funding for School Sport and P.E. with the aim of improving provision and experiences within schools. For CKJS, this figure is circa £10,000 pa. This money was allocated following the Olympic Games with the aim of providing and enduring legacy, from which the children would benefit for years to come. Initially, the intention was to provide funding annually for two years; this has been extended.
CKJS has a long-standing and well-earned reputation for excellent sport provision, involvement in a variety of events and competitive success; we welcome this additional funding stream to support and further enhance the school’s exceptional provision.
To ensure the school develops the quality of provision, from which the children can benefit on a lasting basis, funding has been assigned under 4 core principles:
· Continual Professional Development for staff in order to sustain and develop still further the high quality teaching, learning and inclusion we provide
· Specific sports coaching: training and equipment purchased to enable us to offer a greater variety of sports, which, in turn supports our aim to increase the number of children involved in sporting opportunities
· Revision and enhancement of the PE curriculum, which will also be in line with NC 2014
. Promotion of sport through high profile events including:
1. Use of external specialists for high quality coaching: Cricket coaching from Charlton Kings Cricket club; Rugby coaching from Gloucester Rugby; Tennis coaching from Charlton Kings; Football input from Cheltenham Town; Swimming training linking to Cheltenham Swimming Club; Hockey coaching at local secondary.
2. Signposting of able athletes and work with external sporting bodies: motocross, football, dance, rugby
3. Support of scholarships (Dean Close and St Edwards)
4. Rich and varied competitive events
5. Olympian visit
As a school we are excellently resourced, however the purchase of additional equipment has enabled children to allow greater differentiation and participation within lessons and extend the curriculum range by including new sports such as: Ultimate Frisbee and activities linked to the Paralympic games.
We continue our affiliation with the Tewkesbury School Sports Network. This provides enhanced opportunities for children and staff to develop P.E. and School Sport through participation in tournaments, festivals and themed sessions and, in addition, supplementary training for staff.
Whilst the school’s long-standing reputation is built on both inclusion and success, the impact of our current work is evident through this year’s exceptional achievements:
· For the sixth year running, we won the district cross-country series
· We won the large schools indoor athletics county tournament this year following our second place last year. This success placed on the National Roll of Honour for Athletics
· We were finalists of the county Tag rugby festival
· We won our division of the football league and progressed to the area final
· We won the local swimming championship and took the Gerald Cook Trophy
We look forward to other local tournaments soon to take place: kwik cricket, rounders and netball leagues.
In addition to our high level sporting success, our clubs are highly inclusive and cater for a wide range of ages and abilities: we focus also on participation and sport for all.
Our qualified and specifically appointed permanent sports coach, Mr Kirby, runs sessions targeted at children who need additional support or who may be vulnerable in some way. Children's voice discussions, evidenced a need for non-competitive and low impact sport for a particular group: a walking club was established with pedometers purchased for every child. This was a great success and we aim to springboard this to further such activities.
Sport is used as a means of promoting self-esteem and bringing children together. Mr Kirby is a positive role model and is able to support these children and their well-being through individual and group support, which leads to greater engagement and contentment for these children. In addition, further opportunities are organised for those who show a particular aptitude for sport and PE and are signposted to other sports providers.
Below is a breakdown of sports clubs available at CKJS together with current numbers attending and numbers for last year if applicable demonstrating increasing participation.
New Clubs developed in response to pupil demand:
The school makes effective use of Sports Premium money to impact on disadvantaged pupils. Specifically, we:
Increased teaching hours to deliver specific intervention programmes across the school such as the multi skills programme.
· Run a ‘You can do it club’ (focus is on children with poor hand – eye co-ordination and concentration skills) it helps to nurture groups for pupils with emotional, social and behavioural problems.
· Subsidise school sporting trips for eligible individuals as appropriate.
When appointing, we seek staff with a passion for sport to provide a skilled infrastructure. The current staff base at CKJS comprises:
· A marathon runner, ironman triathlete and cyclist
· A former England ski team member
· A gymnastics coach
· A qualified swimming instructor
· A qualified benchball coach
· A qualified volleyball coach
· A qualified dodgeball coach
· A qualified hockey coach
· A league standard netball player
· Sports degree holders
· A specialist sports coach with extensive qualifications
· Black belt Martial Arts expert
· Football Coach with Youth Modules I and II
Additionally, the school draws upon local knowledge and skills from the adjacent secondary school and the local community to supplement and enhance the team and impact on children’s experience.
The school is able, therefore, to draw from this extensive skill base throughout the day, which in turn facilitates effective training and high quality delivery of all sports.
On-going development of Sports Provision at CKJS
Despite the school’s success and passion, we remain determined to achieve all we can as a school for the children we teach and to embed life-long love of physical exercise. To this end, we complete an extensive audit of our current provision against the School Sports Network Auditing tool and Ofsted’s guidance from best practice nationally to ensure we realise outstanding achievement for all areas.
The targeted areas of improvement are identified in the School Development Plan, the implementation and development of which is reported to the Governing Body through the Sport Link Governor.
In addition, we also consider the well-being report from the on-line pupil survey. Whilst we are proud of our achievements, we are not complacent and seek to improve our provision for all. The three areas the children said they would like to have more information in was:
· Cooking - opportunities for this have been established at the local secondary school as part of the Y3 curriculum
· Getting Fit - included with the curriculum and promotion through events
· Coping with feelings - PSHE curriculum to respond through PInK curriculum
Gender bias is also challenged by promoting inclusion in stereotypically single sex games: netball, football, rugby etc.
To support the development of PE within the school, the £10,000 Sports Premium funding has been allocated to:
Kerrie Tibbles and Rachel Briggs - Sports Co-ordinators
