Impact: Change4Life initiative clubs have been created to increase physical activity levels in less active children, through multi-sport themes. The clubs aim to create an exciting and inspirational environment for children to engage in school sports and physical activity. Over time the clubs will promote and instil a thorough physical literacy and ensure that children take part in lifelong sport and physical activity, reducing the risk of chronic disease in later life.

Providing access to a wide range of resources ensures that pupils area enthusiastic and interested in participating in these organised activities, but also are given opportunities to engage in a range of sports and activities, either independently or when led by the Play Facilitator.

Healthy Week Professional coaching and equipment = £700.00
Impact: A high focus on all aspects of Healthy Living will lead to improvements in participation and physical fitness of pupils, in addition to preventing inflammation and future related health problems. It will enable children across a range of abilities to engage and participate in sports, which otherwise would not be available to them. It enables a greater enriched curriculum (with obvious links to PSHE and Science) as the focus of the week is cross-curricular and each year group plans thematically – throughout the week, all aspects of a healthy lifestyle were explored; basic hygiene and hand-washing, dental/oral hygiene, making healthy food choices for a balanced diet, staying fit and keeping active, the importance of sleep, and how to maintain a happy and healthy mind. Children are given the opportunity to participate in workshops run by sports specialists and visiting professionals, in the past this has included yoga, martial arts, cricket, football and basketball. This all helps to promote the children’s physical literacy and further contribute to the recommended (minimum) daily hour of physical activity for children and further allows children to transfer skills across sports in and out of school.
Evidence: Observations, club registers, pupil interviews and surveys, attendance data, staff feedback
Swimming lessons – including transport and tuition for Year 1 children = £7280
Impact: The Sports Premium has enabled us to fund swimming lessons for our Year 1 classes. Swimming leads to enhanced water safety, confidence and the opportunity to develop essential swimming skills. Children will be further enabled to reach their curricular target for swimming, where all children can swim 25 metres by the end of their time at primary school. By starting swimming lessons at this early level we have found those pupils who do not have extracurricular lessons are more confident and able when swimming in KS2 and for those who already have swimming lessons, this provides a continued learning opportunity to further their skills.
Evidence: Data, certificates. consultation with swimming instructors, KS2 staff feedback
Maths of The Day – £247.50 (shared cost across the Federation)

Maths of the Day provides a wide variety of ideas to help children develop their maths skills in a creative and exciting way. All the children have found the activities fun and challenging.
Evidence: Data, observations, pupil interviews, staff feedback.
Activity Buddy Homework Packs – £140.89

Evidence: Notebook shows that children who do not attend any OSH clubs were very active with the Activity Buddy and enthusiastic to try the challenges.
PE equipment replacements and repairs = £170
Impact: Sports Premium funding has enabled us to maintain and where necessary, replace any dated/damaged equipment (for example we now have new hockey equipment, goal posts and basketball posts, and a Frisbee course). Improvements to equipment enables to a broadening of the variety of sports available to the children, such as basketball. More equipment increases access to sports for all pupils and enhances pupil interest.
