Sports Premium

1. The government currently provides additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. At Polruan Primary Academy, we know that for many of our children, PE is the best part of the week. We use our PE sessions to make sure the children can try as many different sports as possible. They are taught about keeping healthy and making healthy choices as well as how to participate and push yourself so that every child, regardless of their interest and ability, is able to enjoy and make the most out of PE sessions.

2. For the year 2020-21 our Sport Premium funding is £16,260 and has been allocated to the following: Weekly sports coaches to support in the delivery of a broad and balanced PE curriculum and to provide CPD for all staff.  CPD and support for staff in delivering swimming teaching to support all pupils in achieving the minimum standard.  Equipment and resources to introduce new activities and sport for pupils in lessons and free time. Supply for staff to attend competitions and sporting events with groups and teams.  Release time for PE lead to observe and coach staff.   Opportunities for all staff to develop understanding and skills for outdoor learning

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

•the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
•the profile of PE and sport is 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

Impact of Sport Premium Funding at Polruan School 2019-20

• Increased proportion of disaffected pupils are now engaged with improved attitudes towards PE and improved behaviour/attendance.
• All pupils engaged in daily physical activity for 30 mins. iMoves, GoNoodle being used by classes, especially reception and KS1. Every morning children in YR & KS1 ‘wake up shake up”.
• Increased staff confidence has led to more varied clubs and therefore increase in participation in physical activity, especially in KS1. (50% of KS1 took part in GoNoodle club in Autumn 2019)
• Broad and balanced PE curriculum which is fully inclusive
• Increased SMSC skills through children taking the role of playground leaders with responsibility for organised play activities at break and lunch time. 
• An increase numbers of pupils participating in a wider range of opportunities. This year dance and gymnastics.

A full breakdown of the spending can be found on our Sports Premium Report below which reflects our intention to use the funding to ensure sustainable improvements in the quality of provision and opportunities for our children to support them in achieving a healthier life style.
