What is the Sports Premium?

The Sports Premium is part of the Government's Olympic legacy. Each primary school has received a sum of money to improve PE and Sport, and develop or add to the PE and sport activities that school already offers. It is also to enable schools to make improvements now that will benefit children joining the school in future years. 

How much money will Matlock Bath Holy Trinity receive in 2016/2017?

Our school will receive around £8220 this year. 

 

How will Matlock Bath Holy Trinity Primary School spend the money?

  • A full organised annual programme of competitions/tournaments/festivals in addition to the National School Games.

  • CPD (staff training) for curriculum physical education
  • SSP Network meetings to support our staff in developing PE & sport within school
  • Promotion and development of links to local sports clubs
  • Central co-ordination of school sport programmes in SSP area

 

2) Buying in specialist sports coaches to:

  • provide additional school clubs for children to attend
  • provide an extra qualified swimming coach to teach KS2 swimming sessions which enables there to be smaller groups and more individualised teaching

  • support lunch time supervisors in developing their roles as play leaders with the children

 

3) Funding and part-funding extra-curricular activities such as archery within school, and activity days at the nearby Lea Green Development Centre.

What was the impact?

We were able to apply for the Bronze Sports Award due to the high participation of children in a wider range of sporting events and activities.  Children had more individualised swimming lessons in their smaller groups, where possible, and so made better progress.  Sports clubs were the most popular in school and were always full.  Two children from Year 6 were our Sports Ambassadors and organised an intra-school dodgeball competition where all the children at MBHT took part, and families came to watch and participate.  Children had a great enthusiasm for sporting activities in general and were very keen to participate in all that was available to them.  The funding enabled every child to have a wider access to a broad range of opportunities and we look forward to next year!

 

 

How much money did Matlock Bath Holy Trinity receive in 2014/15?

The school received around £8043 last year.

 

How did Matlock Bath Holy Trinity Primary School spend the money?

The money was being used for:

1) Investing in the Highfields Cluster School Sports Partnership.

2) Purchase of specialist sport equipment

3) Course attendance and Subject Leader training for a staff member.

4) Opportunities for Year 5/6 children to participate in outdoor and adventurous activities at Lea Green Development Centre.

5) Swimming sessions for KS2

The funding meant that the staffing set up last year was able to be led by the specialist PE teacher, who supported the rest of the school team in the development of PE and sporting opportunities within the school.

 

The impact of how the sports premium was spent has resulted in increased participation in a variety of sports events within the local cluster group.  The increased subject knowledge of the lead PE teacher also improved the quality of sports provision for all ages and abilities. The children developed a greater enthusiasm for sports and showed increased confidence and self-esteem. Children also had the opportunity to develop their interest in PE at after school clubs. Furthermore, all key stage 2 children were able to participate in a wider variety of sports activities at the Lea Green activity centre.
