Danesfield School will receive an allocation of Sport Premium funding from the government to be spent on School Sport in Years 1-6.
Danesfield School will spend the money in the academic year 2017-2018 on the following:
Sports Coaching- All classes responsible for teaching P.E will receive training from a specialist sports coach (Challenge Sport and Education). The teachers will receive training in two different areas of P.E. The teachers will be trained in each area for ½ term. KS1 training includes: Games and Gym. KS2 training includes: Dance, Gym, Games, Athletics and Outdoor and Adventurous Activities.
Challenge Sport and Education Clubs- CSE coaches will teach children who do not usually attend a club on a Tuesday afterschool. They will work on multi-skills.
Greater participation in sports activities- Supply teachers will be funded for in order for children to take part in external competitions. CSE will lead competitions across year groups to ensure each class takes part in at least two competitions per year. This will include: Gym and Games competitions.
Sports Courses- In order for teachers to develop their knowledge of teaching and assessing P.E, the P.E co-ordinator will attend courses throughout the year. CSE will also lead an INSET to develop teachers’ skills and confidence in teaching P.E.
All of the above actions are designed to increase children’s participation levels in sport and encourage active healthy lifestyles. Danesfield school also aims to enable all children to take part in competitive sport either through inter competitions (against other schools) or intra school competitions (in school through the House system). This includes Cross Country, Netball, Football, Tag Rugby and Gym.
The impact of this funding will be reviewed at the end of the academic year and priorities will be identified for the academic year 2018-2019.
