HOW OUR SPORTS PREMIUM FUND WAS SPENT IN 2017-18 AND THE IMPACT IT HAS HAD:
 

·         The above funding was proportionally spent as follows:
Contributing to new sports equipment
Providing 1 to 1 support at afterschool clubs, for those students who need it
Cricket coach for the pupils across the school
 

·         More children are taking part in extra-curricular sports clubs than previously; with 15 different sports clubs taking place every week. Every day we have 1 sports club in the morning and 2 sports clubs after school.

Clubs include football (differentiated between different levels and year groups), gymnastics (beginners and intermediate levels), Taekwondo, street dance, cricket, tennis, arts and crafts, French, fencing, archery and dodgeball.
 

We were able to give our children the opportunity to watch top class tennis players competing at the O2 and children from years 3 – 6 went to the Royal Artillery Barracks for their sports day.

·         In addition, our children were able to take part in the following events:
          Canoeing
          Kayaking
          Clip & Climb
          Orienteering
          Charlton Athletic Football Challenge
          Quad Kids Athletics tournament
          Kwik Cricket tournament
          London Youth Games competition
          Sportathon
          Inspire Partnership Cricket competition
          Inspire Partnership Dodgeball tournament.
 

The additional funding has allowed for the specialist PE teacher to team teach with the class teacher and PE apprentice and provide CPD and modelled lessons in a range of sports.

Due to this specialist training, the PE apprentice was able to organise and manage the Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 Sports Days on site and is now taking a more active role in the delivery of sport across the school.

The Teachers have commented that they now feel much confident and prepared for teaching PE.
