PE & Sports Grants
PE and Sports Grants 2020 – 2021
Review of 2019 - 2020
We hire external qualified sport coaches to offer Hockey curriculum coaching – the children have enjoyed the hockey coaching through the year and as a result there has been an increase in numbers in the After School Club (ASC). Teachers have benefitted from the skills taught and joined in with the coaching as part of their own professional development. Teachers are now equipped to apply these skills and games to other areas of the PE curriculum more effectively. 26 children have regularly attended the after school club last year with children attending from each year group. Another benefit from this is that more of our children are looking for pathways to extra sport and 2 children have joined Surbiton Hockey Club. One of those children has now been selected to play for Surrey.
We hire qualified sport coaches to offer Gymnastics curriculum coaching – Geoff Rellis (Good Life Gymnastics) has provided children (Reception to Year 6) with gymnastics lessons. These lessons focused on developing key skills and the teachers benefitted as they joined in with the coaching as part of their own professional development. We have continued with this into the new academic year and also provided the children with a lunch time club as it has had such a positive response. Teachers have become more confident and they are replicating the skills and ideas. 50 children have regularly attended the lunch club last year with children from each year group attending. Using the lunch club we have been able to enter the borough Key Steps competition where we won gold in a couple of events. This has also identified pathways for our children as many of them are with local gym clubs such as Tolworth, Avondale and Genesis.
This academic year we have continued to buy into the Kingston School Sports Partnership (KSSP). This has enabled us to participate in 9 different sports and over 30 events, there is also a range of sports for different ages, gender and abilities. In total 320 children from Malden Manor participated in these events, although many children will have competed more than once. For example one Year 6 girl represented the school in 8 different sports.
In addition to this we have again bought into the Richard Challoner Sports Partnership (RCSP). They too provide us with competitions, but also use of their excellent facilities including their 14 table tennis tables, long jump pit and sports hall. They also use their young leaders to run competitions including Year 1 and 2 events and inter house competitions.
Both the KSSP and the RCSP provide pathways to the sports that we offer for both competitions and clubs. Many of our children take part in clubs outside school and Malden Manor School has provided some of those links.
Children participating in after school clubs is at 57% for Years 1-6 for the academic year 2020-2020 (September to March) compared with 60% in 2018/19 (September to March). This year’s target is 70% unfortunately the target was not achieved because of Covid.
Sport competition participation in Years 1 – 6 has risen to 63% (September to March) of the children for the academic year 2019 - 2020 compared with 75% in the academic year 2018-2019 (September to March). Unfortunately because of Covid not all of the competitions went ahead in the Spring term.
41% of pupils within our year 6 cohort in the 2019 to 2020 academic year met the national curriculum requirement to:
swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
use a range of strokes effectively
perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
This data is taken from our Year 4 swimming lessons in 2017 – 2018.
What is the PE and Sports Grant?
The Education Funding Agency is providing additional funding to each school for this academic year 2018 - 2019 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary school headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Malden Manor PE and Sports Grant
Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2019. For this academic year Malden Manor will receive approximately £18,000.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:
• hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
• supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
• paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
• providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
• running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in School Games
• buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
• providing some places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
• pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.
