Hatch Warren Junior School

Primary Sports Funding Allocation

What is the Primary ‘Sport Premium’?

The primary ‘sport premium’ funding for primary schools has been designed to help schools in a variety of ways. Some of the outcomes we aim to achieve through the ‘sport premium’ funding are:

• Increased opportunities for competitive sport

• Improved quality of teaching and learning in Primary Physical Education, including more dynamic exercise in lessons

• Improvements in the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including “increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances levels of which they are capable”

Swimming outcomes

As part of the PE curriculum children are expected to be able to swim 25m unaided by the time they leave junior school. Within the Hatch Warren curriculum swimming has historically been taught in year five. For the first time this year the decision was made to change the swimming sessions to year 4 so that any children who were unable to swim at least 25 meters by the end of year 4 would have the opportunity to complete swimming sessions for a second time when they were in year five. This will happen in the Spring term 2019 for the 15 children (18%) who had not managed to complete the required distance when in year 4. The results below indicate the outcomes for the year six children who left in July 2018, following the swimming sessions that they had when in year five. (Level 2 is equivalent to swimming 25m therefore any child who has reached level 2 or above has achieved the necessary standard)

How we will make sure these improvements are sustained?

As a school we will ensure that the children will continue to access high quality provision in PE by developing the expertise of the teaching staff through on the job training and through the use of specialised coaches and teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons. We will continue to invest in our staff through appropriate external and internal training and continue to provide varied opportunities for the children to access a range of after school clubs into the future. We will also look at improving the present infrastructure provided in school to increase opportunities for sports participation.
