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 2018-2019 on the following:
Dance specialist- All classes responsible for teaching P.E will receive training from a dance specialist (Becky Peterson, X factor dancer). The teachers will receive training once a week and will develop confidence in leading outstanding dance lessons. She will be working with Danesfield 2 days per week for the duration of the first term.
Dance Clubs- Becky Peterson will run a lunchtime dance session for pupils in KS2 two days a week. After school she will run a dance session for gifted and talented pupils.
Greater participation in sports activities- Supply teachers will be funded for in order for children to take part in external competitions. We will be focusing on football, multi-skills, hockey and dance 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.
Increase in Physical Activity- Dan the skipping man will lead skipping sessions once a week for pupils during lunchtime. Brit Tompson will run an aerobic session for pupils in KS2 twice a week to develop fitness levels.
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).
The impact of this funding will be reviewed at the end of the academic year and priorities will be identified for the academic year 2019-2020.
