We were awarded the School’s Games Mark Gold Award in recognition of our Sports Programme in 16-17 (building on Silver from 15/16).

We were nominated by the South Ribble Partnership Development Officer for Primary School of the year for PE and school sport. This was in recognition of the work we do in this area.

As part of our involvement in the ‘Run a mile’, we are involved with Dr Andy Knox in some research being carried out in Lancashire on the benefits of this active scheme.

Information

We work in partnership with Worden High School to develop inclusion, competition and participation elements of sport within our school.

Our School Sports Co-Ordinator (SScO) at Worden High School is Beth Jackson who organises training and sporting events in these areas.

We also work closely with our Partnership Development Manager (PDM), Kevin Loughran, who oversees and coordinates sporting activities for several local high schools within the South Ribble area.

Partnership Development – Infrastructure and competition program

We pay an amount to the Partnership to fund the training and events which they provide. This includes the following;

  • Inclusion events for KS1 and KS2 – aimed at those children who can have difficulty accessing the PE curriculum or for those children who have not represented the school at a team event yet.

  • Inter-school competitions program – aimed at providing a variety of sports for children to take part in at a competitive level with a chance to progress to District and County Finals. We have also entered ‘B’ teams into many of these events to increase the number of pupils participating in competitive sport.

 

We entered the following competitions in 16/17:

  • 3 South Ribble KS2 Inclusion events (Won most sporting school)
  • Leyland schools Wellfield tag rugby competition (3rd place)

  • Young Leaders training – we pay for a high school teacher to come in and deliver a series of sessions to train a group of Y5 pupils to deliver structured playtime activities to children in both KS1 and KS2. We have also purchased a ‘Change for Life Bag’ which has equipment for the children to deliver these activities. The Young Leaders also organize Intra-school competitions.

As a result of this, we have an average of 63 children taking part in structured playtime activities at least once a week.

We also purchased bespoke sports kits / bags to go out on the playground to be used by the Play Leaders.

We now have a structured timetable for both the KS 1 and KS 2 playgrounds led by a Teaching Assistant so that all pupils have a range of sporting / recreational activities to enjoy.

Now boys and girls have access to – dance, football, netball, cricket/striking games, free climbing (on natural wood/trees), open space to play, traditional play/games.

  • Sports Development – we buy into the South Ribble Sports Development program which pays for qualified coaches to come in to school and deliver areas of the P.E. curriculum (with teachers who feel they would benefit from working alongside a specialist coach).

We also felt the need to widen the experiences of our children who may not necessarily experience some wider sporting opportunities.Therefore we introduced the following onto our curriculum, paid for through the Sports’ Premium.

  • After school clubs – we now offer cricket, cross-country and netball throughout the year to our pupils. 84 children have taken part in at least 1 after school sports club this year. These are led by school staff.
  • After school clubs – we now offer cricket, gymnastics and dance throughout the year to our pupils. 96 children have taken part in at least 1 after school sports club this year. These are led by South Ribble Sports Development.

We are really lucky to be able to buy into the South Ribble Borough “Active Schools” Programme. This is run by outstanding staff and is really making a positive impact in developing P.E., Competition and Health and Wellbeing at Lever House.

This programme is based around developing Physical Education, using specialist coaches to support PE and After School Sport and Competition through the School Games Framework and opportunities for health related activities. We buy into all these areas.

Developing P.E.

This means that our P.E. coordinator receives up to date training and works collaboratively with all the other local coordinators.
We receive high quality coaching (1 day per week) for all pupils (across every class and year group) in Gymnastics, Dance, Rugby, Tennis, Orienteering, Netball, Cricket, Hockey and TOTS (learning to ride in the EYFS). We also provide opportunities for our gifted sports boys and girls to compete and train with other gifted children from around the county. Similarly, we enter the local Inclusive Games for those children with disabilities in our school.
We also buy in extra courses and sporting activities such as squash training for the whole school.

Competition

We enter the local school leagues for all sports including cricket, football, netball, rounders, athletics and swimming.
We have been very successful in these and usually get to the Lancashire finals in Blackpool for at least one sport every year.

Health and Wellbeing

We have also bought into the Change For Life package where our welfare staff were trained on creating active games and activities for our pupils at lunch tines – we purchased over £600 of equipment to run these activities.
In addition to this we have purchased a loud speaker to allow pupils to dance on our stage at break times.

One of our aims this year is to get Outdoor Swimming up and running for our pupils!

Our children now have more opportunities to undertake sport in and out of school, more experiences of sport and quality training in the P.E. curriculum, the opportunities to compete against local schools and live a healthier lifestyle.

Sustainability

We have a robust evaluation system in place in school overseen by our Governing Body. We value and health sport very highly in school. We will continue to evaluate our effectiveness and look for the current trends and individual needs of our pupils, families and locality. We will continue to use the Sports Premium to meet the needs of our pupils through clear and focussed planning and sharp evaluation of our efforts.
