PE and Sports Premium Impact so far – February 2017


To ensure the quality of teaching is to a consistently good standard in PE

  • PE Coordinator has observed a range of classes from Reception, yr. 1, yr2, yr3, yr4 and will be popping into years 5 & 6 when the timetabling works.  All pupils spoken to were enthusiastic about PE and keen to talk and show.  PE Coordinator has identified areas for development and has worked alongside one member of staff and is currently working alongside another applying Gorseland’s coaching methods.

  • Chance to Shine coach secured to work with both year 4 teachers to upskills them and to develop the pupils cricket skills.  CPD opportunity will also be open to staff for Cricket too.  Impact unknown but PE Coordinator confident the staff and pupils will gain a lot from this.

  • Local PE Coordinators have voiced their thoughts about what CPD is needed for their staff to the Schools Sports Games organiser and the next round of CPD opportunities will be available to staff 4th May.

  • Time was given during the February PD day for the PE Coordinator to highlight expectations of staff and pupils in PE.  Opportunities and development points discussed to.


To increase the awareness and opportunities for children to make good food choices at break and lunchtimes.

  • Through our class council meetings, the children have discussed why we need to be healthy for life.  They have also discussed healthy snacks in schools with the view to canvassing parents about supporting their child with healthy snacks at break time.  PE and PSHE coordinators to get together to look at the children’s responses.

  • Kim Fookes has presented the evidence for a Food for all award for the school.  She hopes to achieve the Bronze level and has clear steps on how to take this forward.


To broaden competitive experiences across the school

  • As in previous years, Gorseland has and will be competing in a range of activities (Netball, Football, Cross Country, Hockey, Swimming, Rugby, Basketball, Athletics.)

  • After consultation with SSO’s there will be more events open to years 3 and 4, with the vision to go further still.  Year’s 3&4 will be involved in the cross country this year, along with the Quad kids event (both normally Year5/6 events only).  Gorseland will be ensuring that pupils take part in all these new competitive opportunities made available to the younger pupils.

  • Staff building in more mini competitive experiences within their PE lessons.  PE Coordinator has observed a range of mixed ability and ability based competitive opportunities in lessons.

  • Golden km is up and ‘running’ and some pupils have made this naturally competitive without prompting!  Time was given on a recent PD Day to talk through with staff why we are doing the Golden Km.

  • We now keep a comprehensive record of all children who have competed for Gorseland in inter schools’ competitions.  We can easily see who is taking part and ensure Pupil Premium pupils are being catered for.


To record and use (pre) assessment in physical education.

  • Staff plan from where the children are at in PE.

  • A clear and usable Assessment tool for the Foundation subjects continues to be explored.


To increase extracurricular physical activity for all pupils

  • Reception experienced a taster session of Yoga Bugs in their lessons (Feb) with the long term outcome to run a yoga club after school for the younger members of the school.

  • Premier Sports continues to offer after school activities for all pupils as well as Football and Netball clubs for Year 6.

  • Range of activities on offer for all pupils at lunchtimes.  The PALs are doing a great job at keeping the younger members of the school active and creative.

  • Learn, Play and Grow after school club for the younger members of Gorseland.

  • We have now got a clear process for recording which children are involved in physical activity enabling us to see where there are gaps and to consider ways forward.
