Our Sports Premium

The Sports Premium money is used towards our costs of employing a P.E. specialist, Mr Walton through MFC, to teach a variety of sports and P.E. activities across the school. Staff observe lessons and team teach enabling increased proficiency in the delivery of P.E. across the school. Planning is shared, giving teachers ideas on how to structure and deliver a range of activities. Mr Walton also offers sports clubs and activities before and after the core school day.

In addition we have also bought into the Gold Package from our local School Sports Partnership, this agreement:

  • Allows staff to attend CPD.
  • Provides specialist training for the P.E. coordinator.
  • Provides free coaching for pupils – our Y6 children are playground leaders
  • Gives opportunities for children to take part in inter-school/inter-county competitions.
  • Enables all staff to access accredited PE and Sports curriculum plans.

Impact statements

Gold package sports Training has been accessible for the P.E. lead and they have been able to develop their CPD and support from Stockton Schools Sports Partnership in light of the Ofsted requirements for the new curriculum. Different services have been offered to the school, including the use of student leaders during sports day and visits to the school to help develop a healthy life style. Help has also been available to apply for the Sainsbury’s School Mark.
Gymnastics coaching Gymnastics is taught as part of the National Curriculum. The funding has allowed gymnastics to be taught by someone who is educated within the area, during and after school. Gymnastics has been available as an after school club for all key stages.
Middlesbrough football club lesson delivery  All staff have been able to access CPD due to P.E. sessions being delivered by the MFC Foundation. This means that the children are receiving expert knowledge by a trainer who is very knowledgeable in all areas on the National Curriculum. The MFC have also taken children to competitive events after school, which again allows children to receive side line training and support.
Sports development courses Recent courses that have been on offer are sessions to help with planning and assessment of the National Curriculum, how to include gymnastics within the school and how to become more proficient in the teaching of different sports. As some of the courses have been delivered within the MFC Foundations, it has meant that the coaches who teach the P.E. sessions have been able to access training, as well as the P.E. lead.
Rockcliffe hall PE event Children have qualified due to the outside coaching which they have received.
Cricket competition As the children have been learning cricket within the P.E. sessions, they have been able to take part in numerous competitions outside the school. Recently, a Year 6 team placed second and have invited to attend the Tees Valley competition. This has happened due to the children learning all about the sport and team work within their P.E. sessions. Again, a big part of their success is due to the expert training they receive from MFC Foundation.
Transport to events Transport to events has been hassle free due to buses being booked on a regular basis to transport the children to and from local and distant competitions. This has meant that the children, who may struggle to find their own transport, have been able to attend events which they may have not been able to do previously. It has also allowed different teachers to attend competitions with the children.

Your kind words

“A lovely school with a good atmosphere for learning and having fun”
We are so proud of the progress our son has made in Year 1.
I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff who have helped my daughter this year.
Our son has thoroughly enjoyed his time as a Year 4 student.
It’s nice to have an informative school report that concentrates on the positives of my child’s learning.
Keep up the good work, without confidence it’s hard for a child to grow.
