Sport Premium Grant 2014-15
At Springwell we believe PE and sport play an important role in making our motto of ‘Aspire…Create…Achieve’ a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
Through PE and sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.
What does the Sport Premium funding mean for my School?
We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for two years to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people. Together with Sport Impact we have identified key areas for development to ensure we meet high expectations for our children. 90% of our budget is used to buy into this service, which allows us access to a wide range of expertise and support (see next page).

Summary Evaluation of Impact 2013-14
At the end of the 2013-14 period we were largely successful in delivering our Action plan. The school curriculum plan was adapted to meet the new curriculum expectations and was ready to deliver in Sept 2014. All pupils participated in competitive sport via in-house competitions and competitions against other schools. New staff were supported in developing their skills as part of our in-house induction, resulting in better quality teaching and learning within PE. Training was re-introduced for Sports Leaders and this will be further embedded next year. The school did not retain the Silver Kitemark due to falling slightly short on the number of competitive activities held after school. This was due in part to the extensive building programme that was taking place and to inclement weather.
