Sports Premium

Primary school PE and sport funding 2016 – 2017

What is it?

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. This funding is being continued until 2020

How much school sports funding does Oakridge Primary School receive? 2016 - 2017 Oakridge received £9000 for this academic year and this will continue until 2020.  

Oakridge received £9000 for this academic year and this will continue until 2020.

At Oakridge we employ a specialist teacher for PE and as a result we are able to offer high quality coaching across a range of games and sports as well as ensuring that our children take part in a wide range of sporting competitions both locally and nationally. As well as employing a specialist PE teacher after careful consideration by the Governing Body it was decided that the money is to be used as outlined below:-

  • £6000 - to support the costs of extending the time of our specialist PE teacher to ensure the continuation of the high quality PE provision as well as the wide range of sporting clubs and teams.
  • £3000 - New equipment and entry fees

What impact does the sports premium funding have?  

The impact on pupils of the additional PE and Sport funding is measured at the end of each academic year:

  • The impact has been outstanding as can be seen by the numbers of children who take part in extra curricular activities, the quality of PE provision and the schools success in sporting competitions.
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • expanding the number running sports competitions we enter and are now organising
  • Development of ‘Forest Schools’ outdoor education activities across KS1
  • Increasing the number of inter-school sports competitions with local schools
  • Bikeability support for Y6 pupils 
  • Each year group has two hours of specialist PE coaching throughout KS1 and 2.
  • We are now able to offer weekend orienteering clubs as well as the 12 PE clubs listed below.

We are now able to enter more weekend competitions and therefore expand the participation for more children to represent the school as well as ensuring that our talented orienteers can participate in national competitions

Gold Standard!

We are delighted to announce that Oakridge Primary School has been awarded the ‘Gold Standard Mark’ for our sport provision. The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are assessed  across bronze, silver and gold levels so to achieve the gold standard is an accolade that we are all very proud of. Special thanks must be given to Mr and Mrs Thomas who have led the development of sport so successfully over the past ten years.

This year we will have been able to offer fifteen different sporting clubs attended by 123 different children! Children also have the opportunity to represent the school in a variety of sports with 59 different children in KS2 having represented the school in sporting competitions this year.
