PE and Sports Premium Grant
In 2019/2020 New Marske Primary School received £18 030 from the PE and Sports Premium Grant. This money is used to develop and support the provision of good quality sporting activities for pupils and high quality professional development for teachers so that the legacy of this funding can continue.
The funding has also been used to provide a range of sporting equipment to support a range of sporting activities, provide effective CPD for staff in the area of sports and physical education, as well as providing the funding of transport to sporting activities.
The PE and Sports Premium Grant has been instrumental in allowing the school to maintain the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award for 201/20. This is in recognition of the good quality sports and physical education at school, the links with the wider community and it on going commitment to good quality sports coaching.
Although the full benefits of the PE and Sports Premium Grant could not be seen due to the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic, from September until March the funding was used to provide:
|Use of funding||Impact||Cost||Link to key priority|
|Specialist sports coaching for classes.||
|This coaching also provided the opportunity for our staff to work with a specialist sports teachers to learn how to use the selected sports equipment and lead activities. During the course of this year this has led to staff leading school wide sessions with pupils and parents during sports festival activities. Over the year the school staff received training in the area of Gymnastics and Dance from the Cleveland Sports Partnership and Caroline Grace (Dance). Further training and support was planned for the summer term, but due to COVID-19 this did not take place.|
|Service Level Agreement with the Cleveland Sports Partnership||
|The Cleveland Sports Partnership allows the school to compete with our three neighbouring primary schools, followed by the opportunity to compete with other clusters.|
|Clubs and activities funded or part funded by the school to enhance the quality of sports and PE provision.||
|Replacement and refreshment of sports equipment, so that our pupils have a range of games and activities to play in PE lessons and at lunchtime.
(The summer pupil survey 2019 indicated that pupils felt that playtime and dinner time could be more active in school).
||£1500 for resources||
|Vehicle hire to transport pupils from New Marske Primary School to various sporting locations to compete.||
|As New Marske Primary School is situated on the outskirts of Redcar and Marske, this means that there are always difficulties getting pupils to sporting locations in school time or after school. Our three local primary schools have a 10 minute walk to get to the local secondary school, the location of most partnership activities, whereas New Marske Primary School require a 15 minutes bus journey. This funding has been used ensure that New Marske Primary School plays and active part in all competitions. Due to COVID-19, there less cost was expended in this area.|
|Purchase of school sports kit to allow pupils who have forgotten PE kit to participate in activities
Purchase of new school Football kit when sporting teams represent New Marske Primary School.
|The school’s pastoral support worker carried out some research in September that identified that a significant proportion of pupils who fail to bring in PE kit for sporting activities were pupil premium pupils. As a school we were very conscious of pupils not being able to participate activities in sporting activities without suitable sports equipment. In October 2019 the school purchased a number of school sports kits in different sizes so that all pupils can participate in sports activities within school. The pastoral support work has implemented a system where pupils who forget a sports kit can use a school kit, with parents being notified about the failure to bring a sports kit.|
