The Sport Premium is funding allocated to schools by the government. It is spent on delivering high quality Physical Education at St Luke’s.
Current Provision At St Luke’s School, we strive to improve our PE provision, and enhance the extra-curricular opportunities that we offer our pupils. We provide a variety of clubs that promote healthy life styles and physical activity. For 2018-19 these included; Dance, Football, Chess, Badminton, Gymnastics, Cricket, Cross-country and Sports Leaders. We have also set up a Playground Leaders program for our Year 6 pupils who support pupils during lunch and break time activities.
Last year we were awarded a Gold School Sports Games mark in recognition of the quality of our School Games provision. Pupils thrive in the opportunities they are given to compete at different levels of School Games competition; Level 1 (intra-school) and Level 2 (inter-school). This year we are hoping to retain the Gold award.
Level 1 (intra-school): Opportunities for intra-school competitions include Cross country, Football, Chess and Rounders as well as our yearly KS1 and KS2 Sports Days.
Level 2 (inter-school): We participate in various events held by the Oldham School Sport Partnership and our boys and girls enjoy regular sporting fixtures with other local primary schools.
Impact on pupils’ participation rates in competitive sports
Last year due to the school sports premium all children have been involved in a whole school competition every term. We have also increased the number of school to school competitions. The money has allowed to provide the children with more opportunities in inter and intra school competitions.
Impact on pupils’ skill level
Due to the increased amount of coaching in school all teachers last year had access to skilled coaches, which has allowed us to upskill the teachers to improve the quality of the PE lessons. The children are also able to access a wider range of new and unusual sports to encourage more of our children to enjoy sports.
Impact on pupils’ health and well-being
Last year the teachers planned alongside PE lessons where the children learnt about the healthy eating, fitness, healthy lifestyles and the dangers of obesity and smoking.
We have a rise in the amount of children involved in after school clubs and all children are able to be attend an after school club at least once or twice a week.
5 a day fitness has provided all classes with access to a five minute fitness program that can be carried out at anytime throughout the day. Children are also able to access this program at home.
