At William Bellamy we are devoted to promoting Sport and PE amongst our pupils, parents and staff. Our aim is to deliver our collective vision for Physical Education, Physical Activity and School Sports, and for our sports provision to contribute to whole school improvements.

 

The spending of the Sports Premium is utilised to ensure that we provide opportunities to improve lifestyles, raise the quality of teaching and learning in PE and create to sport and active opportunities for our pupils. We aim to provide high quality outcomes for our pupils who are at the heart of every decision made. For this reason, we will continue to listen to the views of our pupils, school sports council, parents and staff. We will continue to monitor the impact of our sports premium spending, so that we allow for change and adaptions as appropriate, to ensure the maximum positive outcomes for our pupils.

 

The success of our before school sports clubs, wake and shake sessions, and team training, not only has encourage punctuality and attendance but also promotes being active, inclusive and ultimately having fun.

 

Our Head teacher and other senior staff members are supportive of the PE Team. Our focus for improving our provision has seen the talented policy becoming embedded into the school curriculum, review of the scheme of work and additional resources, an inclusive PE and school sport health check and providing CPD for teachers to improve teaching and learning within PE. We have been awarded the Gold Award from Sainsbury’s School Games Mark and the Gold Standard from Youth Sports Trust.

 

The continuation of delivering a range of sports including dodgeball, boccia, kurling, tag rugby, football, basketball, hockey, indoor and outdoor athletics, netball, cricket, cross country as well as other targeted physical activity sessions have been significant in encouraging our previous ‘inactive’ pupils to take up a new sports and activities, while extending and challenging those pupils who are identified as more able, preparing them psychologically and physically for competition at inter level.

 

William Bellamy has an extensive extra-curricular program, this includes before, during and after school clubs. We work with local clubs to offer a range of activities during school holidays, we understand there is a need for our pupils to be physically active out of school hours.

 

Our sports coaches deliver activities including football and basketball at lunchtime, this increases physical activity amongst our pupils as well as improving behaviors. We have a clear message of learning the values of respect and friendship through sport.

 

All of the exciting, challenging and innovative opportunities created for our pupils has led to William Bellamy primary receiving the Gold Standard Award from the Sainsbury’s School Games for the 3rd consecutive year.

 

 

 

School Sport Premium Statement

 

PE, Physical Activity and school Sport

 

At William Bellamy Primary School, we recognise and value the similarities and differences of PE, Physical Activity and School Sport. We provide a wide range of opportunities for our pupils. We have sustained the high levels of participation in competitive sports which is underpinned by the outcomes of our talented policy. The identification of more able pupils and the provision provided for these pupils has resulted in a large percentage of pupils making more than expected progress.

 

External opportunities and community

 

We believe that all pupils should have the opportunity to experience competitive sport, at both intra and inter level. We celebrate sporting achievements at all levels and encourage physical activity in and outside of school. Where possible, we linkup with external providers and community groups to provide extended activities and various external opportunities. We endeavour to signpost parents to activities for their children and arrange trials with competitive and elitist clubs.

 

We have excellent and active links with clubs and organisations in our local area. We have extended this and we open our premises at weekends to allow the children in the community to be active and play sport. This academic year we have held the first school based community sign up event to link community clubs and our pupils. Community clubs that we have excellent links with are Barking and Dagenham Cycle club, Parkrun, Dagenham and Redbridge Trust, Ultimate Vision FC, West Ham Foundation, Be Fit For Today Athletics, Barking Abbey Basketball Academy, Rising Stars Basketball Academy, Romford Hockey Team, Ultimate Vision Sports, Daggers Boxing club, Bike Ability, Change 4 Life, Learn to Ride, Community Gardening, UK Dodgeball Association, Sport Inspired and Jax Boccia Club.

The amount of grant we are receiving for this year’s School Sports Premium is £11,775

 

Sustainability

 

For this academic year, our aim is to sustain the high levels of participation in competitions, continue to provide high quality opportunities for targeted groups and individual pupils, continue to provide inclusive, universal and targeted provision and to improve teaching and learning in PE across the whole school.

 

The promotion of PE and school sport over the past 2 academic years has proved positive especially in KS2; this had led to William Bellamy Primary being awarded with the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold award for three consecutive years. We aim to meet the gold criteria again for this academic year while putting in provision in place to move to the Platinum standard. At William Bellamy we understand that the criteria for this award is based only on KS2 outcomes, however we endeavor to provide mirrored opportunities within our KS1 phase. This academic year has seen our year 1 and 2 pupils attend an inter dodgeball festival, participate in the borough community games, attend the special games at our local special school, hold our own Special Olympics event, attend gymnastics, football, athletics and dodgeball clubs, attend weekend football club and participate in the Golden Mile.

 

Increase opportunity

 

We have plans to increase opportunities for all age groups. We were delighted to read in the recently released Sports Strategy (December 2015) acknowledges the benefits for children as young as 5 to be physically active and be exposed to sports. The activities which take place within these clubs have been designed to enhance the fundamental core skills within the primary curriculum as well as our pupil having exposure to these sports and encouraging physical activity.

 

Targeted ad universal opportunities

 

Our targeted and universal PE and School Sports provision is now well established within William Bellamy. Our more able pupils have accessed specific training and have represented our school in a number of inter competitions. These include football (9 aside), football (7aside), girls’ football (7 aside), tag rugby, hockey, basketball (4v4) basketball (3v3), netball, indoor athletics, tennis, cricket, and outdoor athletics amongst others. Our inclusive focus has seen the introduction of clubs including: boccia, kurling, panathlon challenge, and disability dodgeball, amongst other activities designed for a range of needs, including the Special Olympics event. Our inclusion sports team won the borough Panathlon challenge and was selected to represent our borough in the regional games.

 

Resources and high quality PE

 

We will continue to assess and improve the PE resources available to staff and pupils, we endevour to ensure all children have adequate equipment to access during lessons. We aim to increase children’s confidence, enjoyment and progress in PE and School Sport. We will provide high quality provision and PE for our pupils as well extending targeting groups. The appropriate vocabulary within the PE lessons is now an area which is intrinsically used.

We continue to monitoring after school activities, competition and external opportunities to ensure we are provide high quality provision for our pupils. We ensure that our pupils receive an appropriate service from the providers, therefore we expect different focusses to the sessions from our general after school clubs to the team training session.

Assessment and tracking

 

The expenditure of funding for this academic year has positively impacted on raising the profile of PE amongst our pupils and staff. Pupils and staff support and encourage PE and School Sport. The pupils are continuing to develop their understanding of the descriptors to enable them to self-assess, thus taking ownership of their progress and suggesting areas of improvements. We are currently looking into an online assessment tool to track progression of our pupils, this is one of the areas we will be improving from September 2018 due to the increase in funding available. Our pupils have made good progress in their understanding of the similarities and differences of physical activity, school sport and physical education.

 

Embedded provision including More Able

 

Our targeted and universal PE and school sports provision is now well established within William Bellamy. We have identified our More Able pupils and are providing teaching and coaching sessions to ensure these pupils are supported to make good and more than expected progress. The funding has enable these pupils to attend Out of Hours Learning (OHSL) and prepare for participation in competition, this includes the tactical, psychological and physical preparation. These pupils learn about their preparation and responses to a variety of stimuli which can effect performance. This is then applied to a competitive environment. Our cross country teams (year 3-6) consisting of 50 pupils won 43 medals at the borough competition, demonstrating our high standard of commitment to assisting our pupils to achieve. Our hockey team won the borough finals and will be representing Barking and Dagenham at the London Youth Games.

 

Young sports leaders

 

Our KS2 pupils who displayed competent leadership and management skills have had the opportunity to plan and assist in activities and competitions throughout the school year, as well as leading and officiating competitions throughout our National Sports Week. These children lead lunchtime sporting activities as well as events with our Nursery, Reception and KS1 children. We are continuing providing this.

 

Due to the high standard of our young sports leaders we introduced a Young sports Leader of the Year shield, this was presented at our annual sports awards evening.

 

 

Inclusion for disability, vulnerable groups and SEN

 

We have completed a whole school PE and school sport inclusive health check. Our SEB and our Inclusion Sports Team have attended inter schools competitions, attended community games, special games, Special Olympics event and took part in the Primary Panathlon. These experiences have been very important in raising the profile of inclusive PE and School Sport, developing friendships and living a healthy lifestyle amongst these targeted groups. These children also take an active part in their regular PE lessons which are differentiated to be fully inclusive. Our Inclusion Sports Team have had a very successful year in sport. We have had A, B and C and D teams participating in school sport at inter level. Our Inclusive sports team will be representing our borough at the regional finals.

 

Celebrate successes and achievements

 

The funding has allowed us to look at the PE at William Bellamy long term. As part of the legacy, we use some of funding to help us celebrate the personal, collective achievements and improvements our pupils will make. We feel it is important that this is shared with staff, parents, pupils and governors. We share this information through our monthly newsletter, assemblies, letters, the local press and on our school website. We hold an annual Sports Awards Evening, this will be our 4th year in holding this event. This Sports Awards Evening is a celebration of our pupils’ journey in School Sport. Pupils are invited to attend the evening, along with family members, governors, parents and SLT. Photos, video clips, experiences and achievements are shown during the event. We award various trophies to individuals and teams. These included, determination, honesty, team work, personal development, achievement, contribution to sport, courage, amongst many others. We also have 10 pupil nominations for Sports Personality of the Year and 5 for our Young Sports Leader Award.

 

Long term plan for PE, school sports and physical activity

 

The impact of this funding has allowed us to deliver our original 2 year plan and to write a further 2 year action plan. Ofsted 2014’s Inspection Report stated ‘The appointment of a physical education specialist is having a significant impact on the opportunities pupils have to participate in sport and the quality of what is provided. Additional government sports funding is being used effectively to employ a trained trainer to support teachers to become better at teaching physical education. This has resulted in the setting up of an athletics club in the summer term, extra coaching for talented pupils and improvements to the range and quality of sporting equipment. The specialist teacher has also made good links with local sports clubs and obtained additional funding so that the school can take part in more inter school competitive sport’ This funding has been essential to raising the profile of sport and PE, encouraging pupils to live a healthy lifestyle, and raising attainment and aspirations of our pupils.

 

Increase and sustain participation in competition

 

Our funding has also allowed all pupils to compete at intra level. We have continued to provide competitions at intra level for a number of sports including: athletics, basketball, football, handball, hockey, netball, tag rugby, tennis and volleyball. This academic year, we have introduced a number of sports which are new to our children, we have found that this had a positive impact in our previously ‘inactive’ pupils taking up a new sport or physical activity. We still offer our regular clubs such as Change 4 Life, Passport to Rio and Challenge Me.

 

 

We participated in the National Sports Week 2016 creating fantastic opportunities for our pupils, paralympic events, archery, hockey, football, basketball, tag rugby, panathalon challenge and attending the Community and Disability games. Throughout this week our pupils competed in various sports as well as experiencing new sports such as goalball. The week offered opportunities for pupils to consider different cultures across the world and the children celebrated this in various ways, every pupil in our school participated in at least one intra competition. We are currently planning National Sports Week 2017.

 

Teaching and Learning

 

The PE Lead is working with staff members to improve teaching and learning in PE across the school. An annual staff audit was completed in September to assess the staff confidence and competence in teaching PE, from this CPD and support is arranged. The PE Lead has successfully passed the level 5 certificate in primary school physical education specialism and the level 6 in PE award in primary school physical education subject leadership qualification. Our PE Lead also works with a number of local PE coordinators to assist them with their school self-review of PE and support them to deliver their action plan. This has enhanced our good relationship with local schools within our borough.
