Sport and PE at Yattendon – Our Vision

 

At Yattendon School we believe that health and physical activity is important in promoting lifelong values. Yattendon School does this by providing enjoyable opportunities for all of its pupils to participate in curriculum PE and school sports clubs. We value the benefit it brings to children’s self-confidence and well-being.

 

 

Throughout the 2017-18 academic year, we will be focusing on these key areas:

  1. Further develop our approach to teaching and assessing PE to ensure that our curriculum enables pupils of all levels to be challenged and to make good progress with their PE skills
  2. Increase the amount and variety of extra-curricular sports clubs available to Yattendon pupils and track attendance carefully to ensure all groups of pupils are participating in these
  3. Increase the number of sporting competitions and tournaments that our pupils can take part in within school against other Yattendon pupils
  4. Increase the number of competitions and fixtures in which Yattendon pupils can represent the school against other schools
  5. Increase the number and frequency of sporting leadership opportunities available to Yattendon pupil

Funding Information
 

In 2017-18, Yattendon School will be allocated approximately £19,500 in Sports Premium funding. The DfE provide the following guidance on what we can and cannot spend this funding on as follows.

 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that we should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

 

For example, we can use our funding to:

 

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

· provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

· introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport

· support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs

· run sport competitions

· increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

· run sports activities with other schools

 

We should not use our funding to:

 

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of your core staffing budgets
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum - including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)

 

At Yattendon we have taken the decision to use some of our funding to work alongside the Visionary Sports Academy (VSA) to support with the delivery of games lessons alongside class teachers in order to model high quality sport teaching within our curriculum. The VSA will also provide lunchtime and after school sports clubs which are focused mainly on increasing participation but in some cases in developing our more experienced athletes through enrichment activities.

 

We are also continuing to develop staff expertise in teaching PE through our continued investment in the Real PE philosophy of teaching and the associated resources needed for this.

 

We are entering our first full year as members of the Redhill and Reigate Primary School Sports Association which enables our children to compete more regularly in sports fixtures, for example, through joining the football and netball leagues and entering gymnastics and dance competitions.
