PE and Sports Premium
The PE and School Sports Premium is designed to help Primary Schools improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils. This year schools are being given £16,000 per year plus an additional £10 per pupil in years 1 to 6, based on the school census. This is double the amount we have received in previous years.

Sports Premium Spending
The Sports Premium funding has already had a large impact on Physical Education and Sport at Swanwick Primary School. As a school we have thought carefully about how we spend the funding. Last year some of the benefits were:
- Improved the quality of dance lessons with each class working closely with a coach from the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership for one terms dance coaching. In addition to this staff have worked alongside our PE apprentice on a mixture of games and gymnastics lessons. This has helped to increase staff confidence and support with the teaching of high quality PE.
- The children have continued to be active throughout the school day. Health and fitness levels of children have increased across the whole school through an increased uptake in the Swanwick Kilometre. We have continued to celebrate class achievements in our celebration assembly. Certificates continue to be given to reward individual success with a new ‘Ultimate’ certificate, designed for those children able to run 100km. Skipping workshops inspired children to skip and the introduction of an activity trolley has increased activity levels at both break and lunch times.
- Mini leaders continued, running activities at lunch times supported by our PE apprentice. They were given additional training and showed great leadership setting up activities each day. Children were able to record the hours they led activities as a mini leader and received certificates. Their commitment to the role was celebrated in assemblies and within the Swanwick Story.
- Clubs and competitions have continued. Clubs have taken place across the school covering a variety of different sports and activities. We have continued to compete in high quality competitions run by the School Sports Partnership promoting the values of the School Games. This year we achieved a Gold School Games Award.
- Sports days took place in key stages with children working together in teams using a variety of skills they had learnt during the year. This was supported by parents who were invited into school to enjoy this experience.
- The school grounds have been mapped out with revised maps produced to support orienteering within school along with new units of work.
Over the next year we plan to continue with the following:
- Continue with the Swanwick Kilometre to increase fitness levels and competition.
- Continue to collect baseline assessments of fitness levels through recording the number of laps run in a given time. This will be done termly as part of the Swanwick Kilometre. From this we can then put in intervention programmes where necessary and run active and fitness clubs to suit children’s needs.
- Employ the Sports Partnership to ensure each class experiences a different sporting experience to those offered within the PE curriculum.
- Employ the Sports Partnership coaches at least 2 days a week to support in PE lessons supporting staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons.
- Use the Sports coach to support with active lunch time and the training of mini leaders. Continue to support the mini leaders at lunch times so they have more confidence in the setting up and leading of activities.
- Create skipping leaders who demonstrate new tricks and skipping techniques through assemblies and also support children at lunch and break times.
- Identifying those children who are less active and hold a lunch time club to engage these children.
- Hold staff inset to support the teaching of high -quality orienteering.
