Husthwaite’s Sport Development & Sport Premium Funding

The government has given all schools additional funding to promote PE in schools. We are using the funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at Husthwaite Primary School.

Funds have been ‘pooled’ within the local cluster of primary schools to employ specialist PE coaches and PE teachers who will work in our school to:

  • Provide high quality PE lessons whilst also working alongside teachers in their lessons to increase their subject knowledge and PE skills.

  • Provide a range of extra-curricular sports clubs run by existing members of staff and specialist coaches.
(running, netball, football, multi-skills)

  • Coordinate and run cluster sporting competitions and events throughout the academic year.
(All cluster sports events cover a range of activities including cross country, tag rugby and multi-skills.)

    "The school makes good use of the additional Primary School Sport funding provided to raise standards in physical education and pupils’ physical well-being. Additional resources have been purchased and a new sports coach is helping to teach physical education lessons and support out-of-school activities. Physical education lessons are well planned and promote pupils’ skills effectively. Pupils enjoy opportunities to represent the school in team games and attending the after-school clubs."  Ofsted, October 2013

How are we making sports provision and improvements sustainable for the future?

The standard of curriculum PE has improved and continues to be reviewed (see the current PE curriculum here).

There exists a very positive attitude from children when working with the sports coach which encourages the engagement and inclusion of the children in new activities.

Positive feedback has been given by staff from working with the sports coach and they continue to gain knowledge and experience from working with this dedicated resource.

The transfer of knowledge gained from specialists is being encouraged through the recording, monitoring and modelling of good practice.

The school offers a full range of sports including a dedicated Sports Week each year (see our School Gallery here for a look at Sports Week).

The high quality equipment / resources have resulted in positive experiences of PE for the children.

Links established with local clubs signpost child onto other activities in the community (see some of these experiences on our Sports News webpage).
