P.E and Sports Premium
Oldfield Primary School appreciates the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement. We are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive, on average, 30 minutes of physical activity every day within school, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teachers. Children can also choose to join in with any part of the diverse enrichment programme we offer of OSH activities. The Sport Premium funding is allowing us to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and to firmly embed a culture of participation and competition and achievement for all pupils as soon as they enter the school.
Regular staff training opportunities are provided for teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) to keep them abreast of new initiatives. We run a Sports Day and cultural week every year including competitive races for KS2 as well as an opportunity to show case dances or gymnastic routines created throughout the year. Teachers, TAs, coaches, parents and Sports Leaders provide a wide range of before school, lunch time and after school sports clubs, both for team and individual sports. Oldfield Primary School has an unrivalled record in local sports competitions and this year reached the National Semi- finals Futsal completion. This could not have been achieved without the support and commitment of all helpers, which is, and always will be, very much appreciated.
Swimming figures for 2020-21 have been obtained from the swimming instructors at the Magnet Leisure Centre. All pupils swim in Year 1, Year 3 and for the last time in Year 5.
In 5 Morpurgo we achieved a 90% success rate in the following tasks:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- use a range of strokes effectively
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
For 5 Dickens the figures were slightly lower at 89% with just one non-swimmer.
Oldfield receives approx £18,000
The impact will be monitored by the PE Leader in the first instance and overseen by the Headteacher.
Monitoring will include observations of teaching, drop-ins to clubs run by school staff, volunteers and outside agencies to ensure that provision is of high quality and that take-up of each extra-curricular activity is appropriate.
