For this academic year, 2014 – 2015, we have bought fully in to the TSSP and used the expertise of our own staff for the additional teaching sessions. We continue to provide swimming lessons for a term, as well as a range of after-school clubs run by external staff and our own staff.
The Impact of Sports Funding:
We have evaluated the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We looked at how well we used our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reached the performance levels they were capable of.
Measuring the impact of the activities provided with the funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made by formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in P.E. It is anticipated that at the end of the academic year we will have some data to show the impact of this sports premium funding on pupil progress and involvement in sport.
