Short Wood Primary School Sport Premium 17/18
At Short Wood we believe it is important for all children to be given the opportunity to participate in competitive sport, through both intra and inter sports competitions. The school aims to introduce children to a range of sporting activities and to encourage them to appreciate how such interests can “enrich” their lives.
We believe that Physical Education and sport play a vital role in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children. Physical Education and sport are central in giving children the knowledge and understanding in order to make a positive impact on their own health and well-being. The physical education curriculum at Short Wood Primary School aims to provide children with the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports and physical activities, carried out in a safe and supportive environment, where effort and hard-work, as well as success, is celebrated.
The Government is providing additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Short Wood.

For the financial year April 2017 to March 2018 we will receive an amount of £10,340.

Impact of Sport Premium at Short Wood Primary School 2016-17
At Short Wood we believe it is important for all children to be given the opportunity to participate in competitive sport, through both intra and inter sports competitions. The school aims to introduce children to a range of sporting activities and to encourage them to appreciate how such interests can “enrich” their lives and help them to develop healthy lifestyles.
The sports premium funding had enabled us to continue to offer a wide range of sporting clubs which pupils are able to attend free of charge.
The school has been awarded the Gold Sainsbury’s School Games Mark
The Sainsbury’s School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
School Sports Partnership
During the year 2016-17 our children have had access to more competitions than in previous years. 25% of our children across years 3-6 have represented the school in competitive sports which have included girls and boys football, netball, swimming, rounders, orienteering, gymnastics, kwik cricket, square ball, cross country, tag rugby, dodge ball, basketball, athletics, archery and hockey. Our success at these competitions is also improving as our children are developing their fitness and skills base.
Our success in the Telford and Wrekin competition saw us progress to finish fourth in the Telford and Wrekin swimming gala with 3 swimmers being selected to represent Shropshire. We also won the year 5/6 Telford and Wrekin dodgeball competition and have been selected to represent Telford and Wrekin at the School Summer Games. Due to our success in hockey, gymnastics and cross country, children from our school represented Telford and Wrekin at the Shropshire Winter Games. The year 5/6 boys football team won the ESFA Shropshire competition and went on the represent Shropshire at the West Midlands regional competition progressing as far as the semi-finals. The Year 3/4 tag rugby team reached the semi-finals of the Telford and Wrekin tag rugby tournament. Our Year 5/6 netball team reached the finals of the Telford and Wrekin competition. The Year 5/6 basketball team were semifinalists of the Telford and Wrekin competition. Finally, the Year 5/6 kwik cricket team won the Telford and Wrekin competition.
Sports Coach – Mr Butler
As Short Wood values the importance of engagement in sport Short Wood it continues to employ its own sports coach. The impact of having a sports coach for PE at school is already apparent. Mr Butler has been able to form strong links between the cluster schools and develop new competition formats.
Through working with Wrekin College Sports Development Officers we have taken part in family competitions for dodgeball, archery, cricket and basketball.
Through having a sports coach we have developed an increased programme of extra-curricular activities that now work around the annual competition calendar. They aim to develop fitness and to develop stronger sports teams to help us improve at competitions. The extracurricular activities which have been available to our children are: swimming (two clubs one for advanced swimmers and one for non-swimmers in year 6), football, tag-rugby, cricket, cross country, skipping, netball, sports hall athletics, zumba and archery.
Coach Butler has also worked alongside staff within school providing CPD to enhance their subject knowledge of different sports.
In addition we have had a specialist coach work in year 6 delivering cricket lessons alongside our teachers to develop their skills and expertise. 60 year 6 children took part in the sessions. This also helped the children learn the rules enabling us to enter a boys and girls team into the Wellington Cricket Tournament.
To support our swimming club the member of staff responsible has completed the rescue test for teacher’s qualification.
New Extra-curricular clubs.
The school has been able to widen the range of extra-curricular activities to include a non-swimmers club for Year 6 children.
A new Zumba club has been introduced this year.
Intra Sport Competitions
95% of our children competed in the annual sports days. Our aim is to continue to develop the range of intra sporting events with a calendar of events timetabled in for summer 2017 which includes striking and fielding and athletics.
