Sports Premium Allocation 2016-17

Sports Premium 2016-2017

The Sport Premium funding is used to provide high quality, positive opportunities for all children to participate in PE, school sport and physical activity to foster a healthy active lifestyle. The Sport Premium funding is based upon the number of pupils in the school.

The 2016 – 2017 Sport Premium funding for Horndale Infants School has contributed to the school’s budget to invest in:

The school anticipates an allocation of £8,290 in PE and School Sports Funding.  It is our intention to use this to provide a range of CPD to support teachers in providing high quality teaching and learning experiences for all pupils.  We also intend to increase access to a broader range of curricular and extra-curricular events to promote physical activity and school sports.  We also plan to engage more children in participating in sport festivals and competitions.

Use of Funding Cost
SLA – Competition £750
SLA – Enhanced £4000
Equipment £1000
Sporting Chance – Coaching £405
Swimming Lessons FS2 – Year 2 £1260
Transport £3260
Total Expenditure £10,675

The majority of this money has been spent on buying into the Sedgefield School Sports Partnership. The SSP provide us with high quality coaching, numerous CPD opportunities for staff, level 1, 2 and 3 competitions for pupils and range of festivals for all year groups.

Through the SSP children participate in sports ranging from football to gymnastics, netball to athletics and cross country to cricket. We attend festivals throughout the year, developing key sports skills. At Horndale we also attend numerous competitions, succeeding in many enabling us to go on to the represent the Sports Partnership at county level.

Over the last year we have spent just over £3260 on transport that enables pupils to travel to and from sporting festivals and competitions.

The school have also allocated money to pay from new sports equipment. We have been able to purchase athletics, rugby, and football equipment this year.

How did the school identify groups/individuals to benefit from Sport Premium funded actions?

Children selected for the Change for Life Club were identified as children who did not take part in after school activities, or did not enjoy the traditional sports activities on offer. The children that attended clubs, such as gymnastics and dance were open to all but were selected. For example 22 year 2’s applied to take part in the gymnastics and 12 were selected to take part.  During their PE lessons, children competed in intra sport competitions to determine who would make team. From the after school clubs, children would then compete in festivals and competitions put on by the SSP.

We have targeted a range of year groups to benefit from the Premium funded activities, ensuring that all children have access to a coach. Each child in the school will receive some sort of specialist coaching, paid for through the Premium money. For example, children have had access to coaches from Athena Gymnastics Club, Durham Wildcats basketball team, Durham County Council, Destination Judo and Durham Hoopstarz. We believe that all children should have firsthand experience of working alongside a specialist coach.

Which classes/year groups has the Sport Premium been spent on and why?

All children have had the opportunity to experience a range of sports premium money funded activities. For example, as part of the School Sports Partnership we were able to have access to a Hoopstarz coach, who worked with all of the pupils from the school.

All teaching staff have had access to CPD. CPD opportunities have come in the form of staff training courses, coaching support for lessons and lesson support from PE specialists. As a result, staff have developed greater confidence in teaching PE and this has had a positive impact on the children during lessons

Health Initiatives

Currently, the school has a Change 4 Life club to engage the least active and vulnerable pupils.

Children have an awareness of how to live a healthy lifestyle. They have a greater understanding of PE and sport and know that PE and sport does not have to be competitive. These children were all reluctant to participate in sport, because they did not enjoy the competitive aspect. The Change for Life club has focused on the non-competitive aspect of sport, which these children have enjoyed.


The school is currently analysing data from 2015-16 in order to coherently report the full impact of the Sport Premium. The aim is to have this updated on the school website by the end of the Autumn Term 2016.
