Sports Premium Strategy
Our Vision is that ALL pupils leaving Kirkby and Great Broughton Church of England Primary school will be physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. Each year, every child in our school will be given the opportunity to represent the school in a sports event or competition.
Our overall objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools against these five key indicators:
In 2018/19 our Sports Premium allocation was £17250.
The Sports Premium continued to be used to employ specialist sports coaches. All pupils benefit from specialist PE coaching whilst teachers and teaching assistants gain valuable CPD by team-teaching and observing PE Lessons. This year we have welcomed accredited coaches within the specialism of football and tennis to coach our pupils and provide quality CPD to staff. One of our sports coaches also runs an after-school sports club each week in school and a lunchtime club aimed at engaging and developing girls’ football was provided with a very encouraging uptake.
Membership of a Cluster Sports Partnership is funded through the premium; this provides excellent opportunities for competitive sport and we are delighted that a number of our children have, as a result of these opportunities, qualified for Hambleton Area finals during the year.
Pupils from across the school benefited from a wide range of sporting opportunities organised and hosted by the Stokesley Cluster Co-ordinator. Over the year our children attended Cross country level 2 & 3 events, KS1 & FS multi-sports, Netball, Football, Tag Rugby, Rounders and Cricket tournaments & festivals.
In August 2019, we were delighted to be awarded the Bronze School Games Mark, recognising our children's participation in sport.
In September 2018, the school installed a Fitness Footpath around the main field providing an all-weather track for running and fitness activities encouraging pupils to achieve a daily mile/15 minutes of activity. This facility has been very well received and utilised by our pupils. Our current plan is to continue to develop the space to include various fitness/activity stations for the children to use as part of their PE curriculum and for increased activity at playtimes.
