In 2016/17, as well as the sports premium money we have spent in our own school to extend the variety of extra curricular clubs, to have clubs at lunchtimes and to further develop teachers' practice, we also buy into the Outwood Together sports activities. These have the added bonus of giving our children an opportunity to work with other children locally. There have been some exciting activities that would not have been possible to run as an individual school including some of our children with SEND going to the local special school for an event and events focused on getting children active who maybe have not thought of trying a particular sport.
The summary from the PE coordinator for Outwood Together is attached
In April 2013 the government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. For this financial year 2015/2016 we have been allocated £8000 plus £5 per child. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve participation in PE and sports, to improve and develop teaching of PE in school and to promote healthy lifestyles.
In 2015/16 we decided to utilise the use of a specialist sports coaching company (DM Sports), to improve the teaching and learning of PE and games across school and to offer regular after sports clubs. All classes had the opportunity to work with the sports coaches during school time and the teachers were present to learn new methods, skills coaching, drills and to improve their knowledge of a particular discipline. The coach also passed on teaching plans and resources to help that teacher/year group in the future.
In 2016/17 we, again, bought the services of DM Coaching. The company are supporting our new teachers in class so that they enjoy the training and development that last year was offered to the whole school. We have bought a new PE curriculum that we are embedding and which offers more opportunity for children to enjoy a breadth of physical curriculum. Next we wanted to be able to offer sporting opportunities to children who are not able to stay for our After School provision, so we have clubs running for Key Stage 1 and 2 at lunchtimes. We expanded our After School provision and we have set aside some money to support children who are unable to pay for extra curricular sport. In addition this year, we have established two 'elite' clubs for our more able pupils.
