Sports Premium Funding
For the academic year 2016 to 2017, Conway received £9,835. This has so far been spent on new football kits for our football team (who play home and away games). We have also replenished our P.E. cupboard with footballs, dodgeballs, foam balls and other equipment. The funding will also be used to purchase a table tennis table to be put in the friendship zone to encourage team games. It will be used to purchase and build a soft play area for KS1 in the playground, and extra basketball hoops in the KS2 playground. We hope to hire a cricket coach to come in and run an after school club, which has been requested by the school council and the sports ambassadors.
The effect of the premium has had a great impact across the school, especially with our sports after school clubs which run every evening. Including a ‘Change for Life’ club which targets children who benefit from teamwork and sports, helping them improve their behaviour and lifestyle. We will continue to improve our sports education at Conway by using the premium to make sports interesting and educational not only during P.E. lessons but during lunchtimes and playtimes (with the addition of extra outside resources). Also including the many after school sports clubs and opportunities that we provide, which change termly based on the needs and expectations of our Children children.
For the academic year 2014 to 2015, Conway received £9,695. This has been spent on a new scheme of work for PE, including a whole-school training INSET. The ‘real PE’ programme is based on a holistic approach which recognises the key abilities children need to be successful both within PE and Sport and across the new National Curriculum. The funding was also used to update PE equipment across the school. Some of the money was also allocated to welcoming local Paralympic athlete, Andy Barrow, back to the school for the second installment of his Athlete Inspiration Programme workshop with Year 5.
Conway received approximately £8,000 for the academic year 2013 to 2014. At the end of 2013 we piloted a “Just Dance” session for our children. Everyone enjoyed the sessions so much that we decided to invest in a LED screen for our playground so that children can participate in sessions during lunchtimes and playtimes. The sessions are fun, energetic and certainly contribute to helping the children stay fit and healthy.
