Sports Premium

The Sports premium funding at Addingham Primary School is used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles.

Playing sport helps to keep children healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

Sports Funding 2019-2020

 Funding Total Lump sum awarded  £17,801

Health Mentor x 3.5 days per week aprox. £13,920

Mr Storton leads before and after school clubs, trains the children ahead of the Grammar School competitions (see our successes in the trophy room section of the website), teaches PE alongside staff members to increase their subject knowledge. Mr Storton also mentors different groups of children throughout the school, helping with assertiveness, SEMH, behaviour, positivity and leading play. Mr Storton has 2 hrs mentoring time this academic year.

The grant will be used to ensure that all children have the opportunity to participate and engage in a broad range of improved sporting activities regardless of their sporting ability. In order to enable them to do this, PE activities will be delivered by our well-trained confident staff supported with the quality resources needed to achieve our objectives. Our Health Mentor will also take time to plan, team teach and evaluate lessons alongside our teachers, to up skill their practice.

We have also employed Mr Storton to coach the boys and girls football teams in Year 5 and Year 6 to increase their success rates.  Mr Storton also attends the football matches with the children to help coach them through the after school games. £528

We have rejoined the Ilkley Grammar School League which costs primary school's £2,000 each year. This use of the sports premium allows our KS2 pupils to participate in sports coaching after school, alongside their peers from other local primary schools and then take part in competitive matches. 

This year we are going to resubmit our evidence to secure the Gold Sports Award for the third time which costs £200.

We hold a sports personality of the year assembly and the engraving for awards from Rec - Y6 costs £127.50 for the trophies and award plaques for the sports personality of the year awards board.

Our PE annual equipment check maintenance costs £320 per year.

We've set aside £1,000 to update sports equipment this year and with the help of Mr Storton the children will each get a half term's tuition in a new sport, we are trialing TriGolf, with the class teachers teaching alongside Mr Storton.

Our overall PE expenditure for 2019-2020 comes to £18,095.50 which is £265.50 more than the allocated sports premium funding provides.

All of our Pupil Premium Pupils are entitled to one sports club per half term, paid for by school.
