Sports Premium

At the Oaktree School we believe that PE and Sports plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young peoples’ lives for the better. 

 

We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all young people. 

 

The documents below outline the way that we have used the funding so that the quality of our sports provision is of a very high standard.

What Did we Achieve in 2015 -2016

 

Aim 1: To improve the quality of assessment across all subject areas so that children make outstanding progress. 

We used classroom monitor to identify the baseline assessment levels for each year group and to identify general data information at start of year to inform tracking. We checked PE data to support tracking and help to identify areas of development.  The subject leader checked that all year groups were assessing from the new curriculum statements.

Area for development

Aim 1:  To use Classroom Monitor to track 'groups' termly.

 

Aim 2:  To develop children’s capacity to identity and build upon their own learning needs. 

A display was set up in the hall so that the children could access PE vocabulary and display pictures of good practice.  Planning was reviewed to ensure that time was being given to assess learning.  Observations showed that children were being more reflective about their performance. 

Area for development

All new teachers received sports training from an outside provider. 

 

Aim 3:   To build a Learning Community

The PE subject Leader attended the SWAN Trust Network meetings and organised and attended sports events with the children.  Policies were shared and good practice observed. 

 

Aim 4: To improve sports facilities by building a cycle track

At the Oaktree School we believe that cycling is an important skill for children to learn to enable them to keep fit whilst cycling and join teams to enjoy the sport.  For the last 8 years we have taught our children cycling skills and for four years our children won the Infant Section of ‘The Tour Series Woking’.   During the summer break we built  a cycle track so that children can learn to cycle safely and compete with each other.  We have purchased bikes and helmets for each age group.  We will be working closely with a local Cycle Club who are providing guidance and support.

 

What are we looking to Improve in 2016-17

 

2016-17 Next Steps

  • To monitor the performance of disadvantaged groups in PE and provide more opportunities.
  • To develop our skills in teaching cycling by working closely with a local cycle club. . 
  • To provide training for new teachers in gymnastics and sport so that they can differentiate more effectively.

Successes 2014-15

 

AIM 1:    To improve the quality of teaching and assessment in PE  

 

What did we want to achieve?  High quality differentiated teaching sessions.  

 

To achieve this we:   Used our tracking system Classroom Monitor to track children’s achievement and progress. We purchased a projector and screen for the hall to aid teaching.

 

What did we achieve?  By the end of the year all actions had been completed successfully.  All teachers used Classroom Monitor to identify the baseline assessment levels for each year group and they used this information to identify learning requirements and to inform tracking.  Teachers were able to use the data information to plan effective PE sessions and to undertake some tracking of groups of children.  We were using three assessment systems last year due to the changes in the NC.  We successful found ways to track achievement and progress for all year groups.  The purchase of the projector in the hall was very successful because children were able to watch examples of good practice and evaluate their own work.  The training plan put in place was eventually limited because there was a bigger movement of staff than anticipated.   We trained all teachers and Class Teaching Assistants in gymnastics and observations showed that the teaching of gymnastics improved.  All lunchtime staff received training to provide short games activities at lunchtime. We are now embedding these into our lunch time. A specialist teacher was employed to work with Years 1 and Year 2 to develop a variety of games skills and to introduce the children to working in teams

 

AIM 2:    To develop children’s capacity to identity and build upon their own learning needs.     

 

What did we want to Achieve?  The children to be able to self-evaluate their learning and identify improvements to their own performance.

 

To achieve this we:  We purchased a projector and screen for the hall.  We tried to provide opportunities for PE during Green Learning time.  Ensuring children were taught the relevant PE skills to be successful. 

 

What did we achieve?  By the end of the year not all actions had been completed successfully.  We will be continuing some of these actions to next year.  The introduction of the projector in the hall was successful in helping the children to evaluate their learning and to improve performance.  The opportunities for children to develop their PE skills during green learning were less successful and needs to be carried over to next year.  The reintroduction of PE skills implemented the previous year was not completely embedded and with new staff needs to continue next year. 

 

AIM 3:      To build a Learning Community

 

What did we want to Achieve?  To work together across the SWAN Trust to improve the quality of PE teaching for all our children. To provide opportunities for the children across the SWAN Trust to compete against each other in mini competitions. 

 

To achieve this we:  The PE team attended three SWAN Trust Subject Network meetings.  These meetings enabled the team to share knowledge and skills across the SWAN Trust.  The group looked at policies and assessment systems. 

 

What did we achieve?  By the end of the year half of the actions had been successfully completed.  The SWAN Trust Networking meetings were very successful and the group have now developed a strong partnership.  Although it was not possible to arrange for inter-school collaboration during 2014-15 we now dates planned for 2015-16 to undertake SWAN inter school Games Challenges each half  term.

2015 -16 Plan

 

Aim:  To improve the quality of PE teaching across the school

This year we plan to provide specialist teacher training to address general ‘games’ skills and gymnastics needs identified from our skills and confidence audit.  The trainer will work alongside the class teachers delivering practical sessions.  This will include pre and post video analysis of practical delivery and written observations by trainer.  Resources will also be supplied to assist with future planning and preparation.   

Cost:  £2,400

 

AIM 2:  To ensure that all children have an opportunity to learn to ride a cycle by the time they leave the school. 

At the Oaktree School we believe that cycling is an important skill for children to learn to enable them to keep fit whilst cycling and join teams to enjoy the sport.  For the last 8 years we have taught our children cycling skills and for four years our children won the Infant Section of ‘The Tour Series Woking’.   We do not have a cycle track and we want to provide a track so that children can learn to cycle safely and compete with each other.  We will be fund raising to provide the correct bikes for each age group.  We are also working closely with a local Cycle Club who are providing guidance and support.

Cost:   £8,000
