Danesfield School will receive an allocation of Sport Premium funding from the government to be spent on School Sport in Years 1-6.
Danesfield School will spend the money in the academic year 2020-2021 on the following:
Dance specialist- All classes responsible for teaching P.E will receive training from a dance specialist (Becky Peterson, X factor dancer). The teachers will receive training once a week and will develop confidence in leading outstanding dance lessons. She will be working with Danesfield 2 days per week.
Dance Clubs- Becky Peterson will run a lunchtime dance session for all pupils in KS2 two days a week.
Greater participation in sports activities- Supply teachers will be funded for in order for children to take part in external competitions. We will be focusing on football, multi-skills, hockey and dance competitions.
Sports Courses- In order for teachers to develop their knowledge of teaching and assessing P.E, the P.E co-ordinator will attend courses throughout the year.
Increase in Physical Activity- Brit Thompson will run an aerobic session for pupils in KS2 twice a week to develop fitness levels. Annaliese Brown will run a skipping workshop for pupils in KS1 once a week during playtime.
Increase the number of competitions pupils attend: All teachers will host a competition for their year group/key stage each half term. Sports co-ordinator will organise inter-school competitions in the following sports: multi-skills, football, netball, cross country as a result of not being able to mix bubbles with other schools.
Increase the number of clubs: Sports specialists will run a club for pupils in football, hockey and volleyball.
All of the above actions are designed to increase children’s participation levels in sport and encourage active healthy lifestyles.
The impact of this funding will be reviewed at the end of the academic year and priorities will be identified for the academic year 2021-2022. A report evidencing the impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium for 2019-2020 can be found below:
