Sport at Moss Hey 2017/18

The Government provides all schools with additional funding that is to be ‘ring fenced’ for improving the provision of PE and sport. The amount each school receives is calculated by reference to the number of children on roll. Schools are accountable for how this money is spent.

The allocation for the academic year 2017/18 is £17,790. In the financial year 2017/18, the school received £14,076

As a result of this funding, it is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Provide a broader range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increase participation in competitive sport

Our plans for 2017/18 and beyond

Key Indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity

 

Allocated funding: 10%

 

Key achievements to date Future plans
Our pupils participate in two hours of Physical Education each week, including swimming, wake-up and shake-up activities, lunchtime activities as well as their usual outdoor games lessons and gymnastics, dance and athletics lessons. Forest School outdoor challenges are offered to all EYFS pupils on a weekly basis, and to all of our pupils through our Enrichment programme.

 

The school employs a specialist games coach to work with staff and pupils on outdoor games activities. New and appropriate, high quality resources have been bought to support the units being taught. Having a specialist games coach gives our pupils the opportunity to work with adults other than their class teachers, which is very beneficial for their social development. The pupils are giving very positive feedback on their sessions with their games coach.

 

We have provided pupils with the opportunity to experience with new sports: Cricket, Tennis, Lacrosse, Softball, Dance, Boxing, Golf, Taikwando

 

We have built up a wide range of extracurricular clubs to encourage children to try new activities. We offer a wide range of new sports for the children to enjoy both before and after school. (See our ‘extracurricular’ tab on this website).

 

We have assemblies devoted to a range of sports, to enthuse our pupils and to encourage them to try new activities.

 

We have 10 x Year 6 pupils who are our Sports Ambassadors, whose role is to encourage participation in events.

 

Explore the possibility of:

 

·         Active Travel – how do children come to school and can we get fewer families using the car

·         Extending Wake-up-shake-up activities

·         Extending Go-Noodle activities

·         Introduce mindfulness activities to all year groups

Key indicator 2:   The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

Allocated funding: 10%

Key achievements to date Future plans
We use the Primary Sport Fund to pay for lunchtime sports coaches, and have noticed an immediate increase in levels of activity, focus and enjoyment.

 

We were very aware that lunchtime can be a long time without structure, and have noticed behaviour has improved in and out of the classroom since the introduction of lunchtime focused activities.

 

This funding is giving us a real opportunity to develop high quality sport throughout the school; it is encouraging us to put a higher priority on the value of physical education, ensuring we plan for a sustainable future, and already we are seeing a difference.

 

Our Sports Notice Board celebrates pupil achievements in and out of school.

 

There are weekly updates in the Moss Hey Messenger. We organise assemblies led by sportsmen and women – one highlight being Beth Tweddle visiting Moss Hey.

 

 

 

Build in additional opportunities for physical activity within the timetabled day.

 

Explore the possibility of:

·         A mile a day

·         Utilise the adventure equipment more

·         Increase Forest School challenges within the curriculum

Key achievements to date Future plans
Developing the skills of teachers, so that the funding has a long term effect, is also an integral part of our plan.

 

An audit of skills and confidence has been carried out and specific training has been planned to meet the needs of our staff.

 

Staff have had specific training in: Gymnastics, Cricket, Dance, Tennis.

 

 

Our Midday Assistants have had training on developing focussed activities at lunchtimes.

 

Planned CPD as a result of the staff audit.

Key achievements to date Future plans
We have been building links with our local community: Queensgate Tennis Club, Trinity Cricket Club, Bramhall Golf Club, Cheadle Hulme Cricket Club, Manchester Harriers Athletics Club, Victory Sports Netball Club, Total Gymnastics Academies, Stockport Sport for All – Basketball

Working with us throughout the year, these clubs have given our pupils wider opportunities to join in new sports, with staff and children benefitting from specialist coaches.

These links ensures that our teachers develop their own skills in delivering high quality PE sessions.

Our Key Stage Two pupils take part in the Bike-ability Scheme, which proved to be very successful, run by a local cycle safety company.

Train staff to be able to provide a wider range of physical activities.

Widen the Year Groups that work with local clubs.

Key indicator 5: Increase participation in competitive sport

Allocated funding: 10%

Key achievements to date Future plans
The funding is encouraging us to take up and develop opportunities where our children can compete against other local schools in sporting events.

We have football and netball teams that have played many matches, and our pupils have played competitively in many other sports such as hockey, boccia and lacrosse.

All sports news and results are communicated in our weekly newsletter (the Moss Hey Messenger), which is available for everyone to view and can be found by clicking on the links on our website.

Through the Stockport Schools Sports Partnership, our pupils have experienced: Athletics, Rounders, Netball, Dodgeball, Cricket, Cross country, Hockey, Basketball, Boccia and American Football
