At Greenholm Primary School we used the Sport Premium Funding to meet objectives such as the following:
- To increase the level of physical activity for our children at Greenhom.
- To create opportunities for as many of our children as possible to represent the school.
- To become more successful when competing.
- We are extremely proud of what we achieved in our second year of Sports Premium funding. Here are some of the Sports we delivered and competed in during the academic year… Football, Netball, Hockey, Athletics, Swimming
The Sport Premium Funding will impact upon our school in the following ways:
- Provide a high level of challenge in this area of the curriculum for our children;
- Raise the skill level and confidence in children to participate in PE and various sporting opportunities;
- Increase children’s knowledge of the part that PE and sport can play as part of a healthy lifestyle;
- Enable children to take part in a greater range of PE/sporting activity and broaden horizons as to what is possible;
- Raise the profile of PE and Sport across the whole school community to help to make developments sustainable for the future;
Afterschool clubs impact 2016/2017
From the table above you will see that across Year 1 and Year 2, we have had an attendance of 60%. Throughout the year all clubs have been full with a maximum of 20 children per club and children were offered two clubs per week, per half term throughout the year. However we have noticed that the same children regularly bring forms back and regularly attend clubs. Each half term, we cross-reference the registers for clubs and make sure children who have not previously attended a club are prioritised and selected first for the next half term clubs.
Our KS2 results show a similar reading, with 61% of children from years 3 to 6 have attended after school clubs. Again throughout the year, we have had full clubs with a maximum of 20 children per club, and have offered 6 clubs per week, per half term throughout the year. Football for year 5 and 6 is a continuous club as we keep the same children, but we have it open to a maximum of 30 children instead of 20; this is the same with netball year 5 and 6. Again, each half term we cross-reference the registers that do change, to make sure children who previously have not been to clubs are prioritised for the next half term clubs.
45% of pupil premium children in KS1 (year 1 and 2) attend after school clubs regularly, this equates to 10 out of the 22 children that are pupil premium in KS1 attended clubs this academic year. Out of all 110 children that have attended KS1 afterschool clubs this year, 9% are pupil premium (10 children).
Out of the 166 children who attended KS2 after school clubs, a total of 27 children who are pupil premium attended the clubs offered over the year. This equates to 16% of all children attending were pupil premium.
Due to expansion of the school, there are currently children in year 3 who may not have had the opportunity to attend some of the clubs due to joining the school hallway through the academic year, this impacts on their year group percentage.
Our final findings show that over the course of the year, the total percentage of pupil premium children attending after school clubs is 25% spanning from year 1 to year 6.
