Sports Premium Funding

How will the Sports Premium Grant be spent this year?

At Winterbourne Junior Girls, we will receive £9,698 for the academic year (£5697) 2015/16.

  • Once again, we have bought into the Croydon Schools Sport Partnership (CSSP) at a cost of £3214. This gives our pupils access to inter and intra school competitions. Already this year our pupils have taken part in a cross country competition, sportshall athletics competition and football festival, with more planned for the rest of the academic year. The CSSP also continues to give staff access to training to develop their own teaching skills.
  • We have continued to use part of the funding on ensuring Winterbourne Junior Girls can compete in inter school competitions by covering transport costs.
  • We now pay for a coach to cover PE once a week in year 3, year 4, year 5 and year 6. This allows all our pupils access to PE lessons taught by professionals with a high level of skill. This totals £1440 for the Autumn term.
  • We used the funding this year to support our Sports week in June – where the girls took part in a variety of sports – including Zumba, Kick boxing, Fencing and Hula Hooping.
  • We have a designated member of staff to co-ordinate PE in school and some of the grant will be used to fund release time for her to do this.

What is the Impact of the Sports Premium Grant?

We would expect the impact to be:

  • Increased opportunities for all of our pupils to access a wider variety of PE and Sports.
  • Opportunity to develop the competitive element of sports and the skills of sportsmanship.
  • Increased opportunities for our pupils with sporting talents to train and compete with pupils with similar skills.
  • Pupils who are fitter, healthier and are motivated to continue to improve.
  • Increased teacher confidence and ability to teach areas where training has been received.
