Sports Premium 2018 to 2019

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has allocated to schools to promote and develop the Physical Education and School Sport provision. Schools receive this funding based upon the number of children in the school.

As this is Sport Premium, the money has to be spent exclusively on extending the opportunities for all our pupils to experience high quality PE lessons and competitive school sport.

2017-2018 was a very successful year. 90% of children on the SEND register took part in sporting opportunities, ensuring SJJS continues to be an inclusive environment. We were incredibly proud to be Gloucester city Panathlon champions. We also took part in more competitive sport than in previous years.

In addition, we have continued to foster and grow our community connections, including getting involved with Active Gloucester, The City Farm for horse riding and The Friendship Café for archery coaching, as well as badminton coaching from a Badminton England coach (who runs a club at GL1 Leisure Centre). This has allowed children to see the opportunities for sport and activity in the local community.

We have introduced a well-being rugby programme, delivered by a specialist coach. The children not only developed their tag rugby skills, but also focussed on the values of the game, learning not only fitness, but how to play together and learn to celebrate both wins and losses. There has been a noticeable difference in many of these children’s fitness and attitude to sport. This was a hugely successful programme and is continuing in the 2018-2019 academic year.

Following on from this success, we are planning to use the Sports Premium funding to:

  • Invest in specialist PE teaching, coaching and mentoring. ( to upskill our teachers to deliver improved PE lessons)
  • Continue to offer a greater breadth of extra-curricular sports. (increasing the current provision to include more young people)
  • Offer children a broad, rich and engaging curriculum including; dance, gymnastics, invasion games, New Age Kurling, Sportshall Athletics, swimming and outdoor learning. (offering different activities to engage more pupils)
  • Introduce new and different sports to encourage more children to participate.
  • Continue to purchase new resources for improved access to curriculum opportunities.
  • Increase the number and range of sports competitions with local schools.
  • Provide fundamental movement skills for all children. ( to develop physical literacy)
  • Maintain affiliations with local sports partnerships. ( to extend opportunities and share good practice)
  • Provide a range of opportunities sign posting outside clubs.
  • Provide staff with training or resources to help teach PE and sport more effectively.
  • Increase opportunities for the least active children. ( introducing wake and shake / playtime leaders)

  1. Use of funding will be monitored throughout the year. ( by the PE lead teacher)
