Hartley Primary Academy priorities for PE:
What is the Sports Premium?
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.
The PE and Sport Grant for Hartley Primary Academy for the 2015/2016 academic year was £10603.50. This was made up of the £8000 grant, plus a further £1790 – based on £5 per pupil for pupils in Year 1-6. In addition to this, £813.50 was brought forward from the 2014/2015 academic year.
What does the Sport Premium mean for my school?
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
How has the Sport Premium funding been used at Hartley Primary Academy?
During the academic year 2015/2016, Hartley Primary Academy used £5750 of the Sport Premium funding to became members of Take Pride. Take Pride CIC provides teachers with the ideas & resources to deliver high quality Sport & Physical Education (PE) and opportunities for pupils to engage in leadership. As well as this, they provide the children with opportunities to compete against each other, and other schools, in a fun and safe environment. Through our membership with Take Pride and our affiliation with Kent Schools Primary Football Association, children at Hartley have had the opportunity to compete in the following sports:
We have now developed a ‘Sports Crew’ (a group of 16 Year 5 and 6 children), who help to promote sport within the school through running lunch time sporting activities for lower Key Stage 2 children. In addition to this, the ‘Sports Crew’ have organised intra-school sports competitions at lunchtimes and have played an active role with Sport Relief 2016 and both Key Stage 1 and 2 sports days.
The funding has also been used to source a qualified gymnastics coach to support Miss Shorter in delivering a gymnastics after school club. We have purchased some new sports equipment, allowing the children to learn and develop their skills in the sport of Kurling. The funding was also used to provide all Reception children the opportunity to complete the Balance-Ability cycling course – improving children’s balance and confidence on a balance bike.
Ensuring we provide a wide variety of opportunities for children to fully participate in sport, Hartley Primary Academy have also offered the following sports after school clubs during the 2015/2016 academic year:
