Primary Sports Funding

 

The Primary Sporting Premium

This year Old Priory will receive £18, 000 from the government to improve the provision of PE and Sport.

£3500 of this money was used to fund our affiliation to the Plymouth School Sports Partnership.

Through this we receive professional development opportunities, participation in competitions against other schools from across the city, promotion of the Sainsbury’s School Values and access to Junior and Community Sports Leaders from our local secondary schools.

In addition we are also planning to:-

~Provide opportunities for SEND pupils to compete with other schools across the city.

~Provide additional activities and aspirational opportunities for Gifted and Talented children.

~Obtain coaching from and links to local sports clubs to signpost children to activities they can continue with outside of the school day.

~Provide training for our Y6 children to be Play Leaders and Bronze Ambassadors.

~Ensure our Meal Time Assistants are up to date with their Positive Play Training.

We have already seen an increase in participation levels at after school clubs because of the way this funding has been used and were successful in achieving our Gold School Games Kite Mark again in 2018.

 

Please see the plan below to see how we plan to spend this money this year to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport. 

Platinum School Games Mark

We are delighted to announce that Old Priory has achieved the School Games Platinum Mark Award for the 2021/22 academic year. The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust, which rewards and recognises engagement in the School Games against a national benchmark and celebrates keeping young people active. We are delighted to have been recognised for our success. Our physical activity and school sport achievements this year include: -

- Embedding positive experiences of competition for all our pupils. This includes both within our PE curriculum and outside of it. This year we have taken more children to a wider range of competitions and festivals than ever before. This includes, boccia, athletics, netball, football, cross-country and, next term, disc golf and archery. Some of these non-traditional sports have also now been included in our PE curriculum.

- Using 'Moki' activity trackers to help identify our least active pupils and provide additional opportunities for them to not only be more active but also help them identify a physical activity they may like to try beyond their school day. Our Active Partner at Heles' has worked with groups of these children to give them taster sessions in a range of sports and activities.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible.

 

We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school in our community. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer.

 

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year. A special thanks to: EVERYONE!!! Getting children to competitions and develop a life long love of physical activity is a real team effort, both home and school. From booking transport to collating consent forms, walking children to events, releasing staff to attend events, washing kits, providing lunches - this platinum kitemark would not happen without any of our school community, and it's very fitting to be awarded this in a Platinum Jubilee year too. Thank you.

We look forward to applying once again in 2023!

 

Mrs Ottewell here just adding that Miss Roberts wrote this piece and of course did not mention that she has been working towards this award for the last few years, thwarted by Covid since 2020. The Platinum award is the highest award in the School Games Mark and there is considerable work behind the scenes to make it happen. A huge congratulations to Miss Roberts that her efforts have culminated in this recognition.
