Hever Church of England Aided Primary School

A small school that offers your child outstanding learning opportunities

Sports Premium

Sports Premium Funding  

Schools in England and Wales receive money from the government to help support and improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools and encourage healthy lifestyles.

Schools can choose how they use the funding but it must be used to:

 

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

 

We are therefore able to use the funding in any of the following ways as the School deems appropriate:

 

  • hire qualified sports coaches and PE teachers to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

 

At Hever School we:

· believe that sport and exercise are key elements of the school day and have an impact on all childrens’ wellbeing; physical, emotional and educational.

· offer a range of activities for our children such as cross country running, orienteering, rugby , hockey, cricket and football, all of which take place on the Parish Field, together with netball and tennis on our own court and PE and Judo in our school hall.

· have a trim trail in the playground which all children are able to use.

· ensure all children have at least two hours of PE per week.

· encourage children to participate in sport outside school and any achievements are acknowledged in our Worship on Monday when children are encouraged to show us their awards/ medals.

· encourage children to participate in after school sports clubs

· participate in competitions against other school

 

The impact of PE

We have observed that children are:

· more focussed in class ensuring better learning and therefore better results

· better behaved in school

· growing in confidence as a result of sport participation

· developing a sense of pride in their achievements. This is especially noticeable in our Worship on a Monday when children are encouraged to show their awards/medals

· learning to work as a team

· becoming more aware about healthy living

 

Our staff:

· have benefitted from observing the PE specialists and are now able to transfer those skills

· have grown in confidence in delivering PE

The grant allocation for 2017/18 will be similar to 2016/17. However, we are currently consulting with stakeholders regarding sport at school and thow this funding should be allocated.

 

In addition to the Sports Premium Funding, the school also allocates funding for PE from its annual budget. This amount will vary according to the needs identified on an annual basis.

 

Judo at Hever:

Introducing Judo into our schools’ curriculum has been a very important step towards showcasing Judo to our students and introducing them to this sport which has become a legacy in our school!

 

The approach to the learning processes of Judo gives the children a unique experience, because it not only takes into account the physical and mental approach to the sport itself but also relates to many aspects of everyday life as well. It really has improved our children’s life balance.

 

The etiquette and discipline is part of the learning process but it is also an essential part of the overall ethos of sport. It should therefore be taught as part of the process. Judo is an Education for life.

 

Lessons and our new after school club are run by Chris Bowles, a 6th Dan and qualified BJA coach. He went on to become British Open champion in 1978 and 1980, a European silver medallist and represented Britain at the Moscow Olympic Games in 1980. Chris has also been appointed GB Men’s Lead Coach, Rio 2016.

 

There are Play Judo classes for children to introduce them to the fundamentals of judo. We hope to start progressing through the grading system denoted by coloured and banded belts.

 

Our KS2 children have enjoyed competitive experiences against St Michael’s School and we were victorious in our Judo matches.

 

School Colours:

 

Hever Primary School will award ‘Colours’ in PE and Music to a pupil who meets the following criteria:

· Represents the school in an inter-school match/gala, festival or tournament. A child will be expected to represent the school for ‘the season’ or perform with other schools, choirs or orchestras to an audience wider than our school community.

  • Be a responsible and reliable member of the team/group, returning permission slips, kit and equipment on time.
  • Demonstrates commitment by attending trials, practices or rehearsals arranged.
  • High standard of behaviour.
  • Positive attitude and enthusiasm.
  • Encourage others in the team/group.
  • Shows respect to all involved.
  • A child may be awarded a ‘colour’ irrespective of their longevity at the School.
  • Colours are awarded at the discretion of the staff of Hever Primary School.

 

 

Early Years - PE is a very important part of learning and children become more confident using gross motor skills, strengthening their body learning about space , improving co-ordination, listening, concentration , basic skills like ball skills, enjoyment and starting to be knowledgeable about how our bodies work. The children experiment different ways of movement, balance stretching and sequence with opportunities to use various pieces of apparatus. Pupils have 1 taught PE lesson inside focusing on dance, gymnastics and judo. Pupils have continual access to apparatus, bikes, scooters, balls, hoops and large building blocks.

 

KS1 - We encourage and motivate all children to participate during the sessions and we offer a broad curriculum to enable all children to feel motivated and comfortable in all areas of P.E. These include dance, gymnastics, ball skills and judo with a continuation focus on coordination and teamwork.

 

KS2 - KS2 pupils follow an annual cycle which ensures they have 1 hour of dance or gymnastics and 1 hour of field sports or swimming. Swimming is taught to pupils throughout Key Stage 2 at Edenbridge Leisure Centre with the assistance of a TA who has Swimming Level 2 ASA Course qualification. KS2 pupils have wider opportunities to attend competitive events and tournaments outside school. The school actively supports the Edenbridge Sports Partnership and partakes in some events/competitions coordinated by the of the Sevenoaks Schools Partnership.

 

External PE Teacher and Coach- pupils will continue to be taught by a qualified and highly experienced PE teacher from an external agency. This will ensure that pupils receive the highest possible standard of teaching, ensuring development of the pupils’ skills and knowledge in all areas of the curriculum. Teachers and Teaching Assistants will also improve and develop their subject knowledge and skillset through shadowing and team teaching

 

Summer Netball Camp- A netball camp will continue to operate through the summer holidays from 10.00am to midday, run by a very experienced member of staff. The camp maintains and improves the standard and skill levels of attendees, ensuring their readiness for fixtures in September.
