THE PE & SPORT PREMIUM AT MOSS HALL JUNIOR SCHOOL 2015-16
The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the physical education, physical activity and school sport that they offer their pupils. Over £450 million has been allocated to this funding over three academic years 2013 to 2016. Based on data collected from the January 2015 census, schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 (Ages 5 to 10). Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil, therefore based on the size of our school, Moss Hall Juniors have/will receive £9,923 for 2015-16.
The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Our main aims for 2015/16 are to:
(Please see below for a detailed breakdown of how we have spent / are planning to spend the grant this year.)
We now have 20 active clubs available to the children of Moss Hall. These clubs offer a broad range of activities from fencing and dancing to football and table-tennis. These clubs operate before, during and after school and are open to all pupils (please see our club list on the website for the full range of clubs). This has seen our participation in extra-curricular activity continue to rise and we are currently looking at ways in which we can offer even more clubs.
This year we have taken part in a variety of school sporting events held by the Barnet Partnership 4 School Sport, including: Football, basketball, hockey, gymnastics, Barnet Dance Festival, tag rugby, and table-tennis to name but a few and we were even able to attend a special training session held by the professional American Football team, The Jacksonville Jaguars, which was held at Allianz Park. We would like to continue to build on our personal and team successes at these events and we are striving to offer even more competitive sporting opportunities in the future.
This year we made the decision to focus a large amount of our PE grant on upskilling and training all members of staff who are involved in the delivery of our PE curriculum. Over the last year we have had a lot of new staff and staff who were new to teaching join us and many cited in our annual teacher audit, that they felt PE was an area we should focus our professional development on. We strive to give our children the best learning experience possible at Moss Hall Juniors and we believe that the training staff have received / are receiving this year will have a big impact on the quality of PE lessons and lead to us embedding excellent practices within PE teaching, throughout the whole school.
