School Sports Premium Grant


Provision for 2016/2017 academic year


To enable the sports premium grant to have the most impact on sport across the school, we have bought in to specialist coaching in gymnastics from Premier Sport for all year groups from Y1-Y6 for 1 term throughout the year. We have also used the funding to employ coaches to run specialist sports clubs for Y1 – Y6 throughout the year in gymnastics, football, archery & fencing. This will allow 80 children from KS2 & 60 children from KS1 to access extra-curricular clubs run by specialists in addition to 30 children from KS2 to participate in multi sports with the PE leader, raising participation levels in sport and providing the children with a wide range of sporting activities.


Dymchurch has also used £2750 to buy in to the Shepway Sports Trust Competition Package, which gives us access the to Shepway School Games Partnership, enabling the school to take part in more competitions and activities against schools from across Shepway.


In addition to this, we will be allocating a percentage of the sports grant to maintaining and improving our PE resources & ensuring that there are sufficient planning resources to deliver effective PE lessons.


Transport to local competitions and events will continue to take a percentage of the sports premium grant, which will enable more children to access extra-curricular sports across the district.


We will continue to access the Golden Mile daily run scheme to promote healthy lifestyles to all children from Y1-Y6 & use the online database to record the number of miles run by each child throughout the school year.


Participation in sport will be recorded and assessed each term throughout the year (3 times per year) using the school sports tracking system.

The sports premium grant allocation for the 2016-17 academic year is £8575.
