Barton Seagrave Primary School has long recognised the contribution of PE to the health and wellbeing of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.
Our school is committed to ensure that all pupils receive high quality PE, delivered by well trained and enthusiastic teachers. Due to the sports funding provided by the government we are rolling out a programme to continue to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a new curriculum based on developing children’s physical literacy skills. Regular staff training opportunities are being provided for teachers and TAs to keep them abreast of new initiatives.
We run a variety of whole school sporting events every year including competitive races for KS1 and KS2.
Teachers provide a wide range of after school sports clubs, both for team and individual sports. Barton Seagrave Primary School has an unrivalled record in local sports competitions and events in Northamptonshire and has regularly reached county finals. This could not have been achieved without the support and commitment of parents which is very much appreciated.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years - here at Barton that will mean around £10,000 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Possible uses of the funding include:
•Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
•New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
•Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
•Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
•Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
•Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
•Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits
