All pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:
- the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
- the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- increased participation in competitive sport
This academic year (2016/17) we plan to use our funding to:
- Fund membership of the Erewash Sports Partnership. This membership enables us to enter a number of local sports competitions, provides a sports coach to run an after school club for a term, provides our upper key stage 2 pupils to become Sports Ambassadors and lead activities on the playground, and enables members of staff to access training.
- Invest in extra swimming sessions for year 6.
- Release our qualified swimming instructor for the year to take a swimming group in the afternoon.
- To provide supply cover to release our PE co-ordinator for sports events and Erewash Sports Partnership briefings).
- To purchase scooter racks and cycle racks to encourage children to become active on the way to and from school.
See attached document for specific costings and expected impact.
We have also once again received the Sainsbury's School Games Silver Award following our Bronze Award last year. This has been due to a re-increase in pupil numbers competing and participating in school sports!
We received £9283 for the Sports premium last year.
This has been used to:
- Fund membership of the Erewash Sports Partnership. This membership enables us to enter a number of local sports competitions, provides a sports coach to run an after school club for a term, provides our upper key stage 2 pupils to become Sports Ambassadors and lead activities on the playground, upskills our PE Co-ordinator and enables all members of staff to access training. The Partnership enables us to meet other PE Co-ordinators and build up contacts to ensure collaboration across the schools. The membership has also allowed our gifted and talented pupils to develop their skills through organised activities at Derby University.
- Invest in extra swimming sessions for years 6.
- To release our qualified swimming instructor during the afternoons to take and lead a group at Victoria Park Leisure Centre.
- Invest in the CyberCoach - a web based short activity session held for 10 minutes per day to increase pupil participation and exercise. The school council were involved in the purchase of this programme and voted for it to be added to the school day.
- To purchase OAA and C2C scheme of work to structure the delivery of PE in the curriculum and support staff confidence.
- Purchase of PE equipment to support the PE in general, OAA scheme of work, Granby Academy activities and lunchtime play.
- To provide supply cover to release our PE co-ordinator for sports events (TAG Rugby, Sports Hall Athletics, Orienteering, Gifted and Talented days and Erewash Sports Partnership briefings).
- To provide an extra swimming teacher for 2 terms to release our qualified swimming instructor for leadership activities.
- Mark out netball court on the school playground to assist with training our netball team and increase participation.
- To map out the school site for orienteering.

This year we have been awarded the Sainsbury's School Games Bronze Award, having previously received a Silver Award. This was based on the number of hours teaching PE, school sports opportunities, number of young leaders supporting activities in school and number of competitions within school and against other schools. We believe this decrease in award level is due to a dip in participation in competition entry. As a result of this the school's main focus for this year will be to increase participation and competition entry (see our sports pages for competitions entered this year). We will use this information as a benchmark for the following year. This was based on the number of hours teaching PE, school sports opportunities, number of young leaders supporting activities in school and number of competitions within school and against other schools.
We are also delighted that in September 2015 we received a Sport England grant for £28,900 to enable us to purchase a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) and Climbing Wall. This has greatly enhanced our school playground and is proving very popular for football, basketball, cricket and volleyball sessions. The funding also enabled us to have coloured playground surfaces too. We are very grateful to Sport England for their funding!
