Tall Oaks From Little Acorns Grow

Sports Premium

At Bottesford Infant School we believe that, 'Better movers make better thinkers. Better movers make better learners.' We are committed to improving PE and school sport for our children. 

We are very proud of how fit and healthy our children are, as they already have so many opportunities at our school to take part in daily physical activity and learn about healthy lifestyles. We aim to make our provision even better using the Sports Premium funding.

 

We will use the Sports Premium money to:

  • Engage all children in regular physical activity
  • Further develop the confidence and skills of our staff
  • Increase participation levels in competitive sport
  • Further develop our school sports clubs
  • Engage children in a broad range of sports and sporting experiences

Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the full report of how our money has been spent and the impact it has had in our school.

 

We are a proud member of the Get Ahead Partnership and work closely with them to improve every child's experience of PE (curriculum), to increase opportunities for competition against selves and others, increase physical activity for all young people and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

 

During academic year 2018-2019, we invested some of our Sports Premium money to become one of Get Ahead's 'Let's Get Healthy' schools: as part of this Miss Borrie, our Health Improvement Co-ordinator, helped us to be the healthiest, happiest school we could be. During our 'Let's Get Healthy' journey we...

  • Launched 'Walking Wednesday' and 'Fitness Friday' to develop active travel.
  • Worked alongside our breakfast club facility to develop healthy choices and train up children from the Junior School to lead active games. 
  • Worked with our local preschools and nurseries to share good practice, resources and develop practitioner knowledge.
  • Worked with children in Year 2 to develop the Junior Lunchtime Supervisor role.
  • Ensured our Christmas and Summer fayre's were our healthiest fayres yet with festive fruit kebabs and fruit cones!  

Miss Borrie also worked with groups of children throughout the afternoon, including our Sports Leaders - please see https://www.bottesfordinfants.co.uk/sports-leaders/ for more information. 

 

Walking Wednesday results...

Assessment day in September 2018 - 38% of children travelled to school in an active way

Re-Assessment day in June 2019- 61% of children travelled to school in an active way

A huge increase of 23%!


Please see below for photos of some of the things we have used our funding on.

We also have a floorbook showing all of our wonderful sporting achievements and how the funding is being used in our school. Please ask Miss Parker if you would like to browse through our PE and Sport floorbook.

Running Challenge!

Running Challenge! 1

Our running challenge has been a huge success at playtimes with 56% of children who completed the Active Questionnaire (July 2019) citing the lap bands as their favourite new piece of equipment and 44% choosing it as their favourite thing to do at playtime.  

The children collect a lap band at the end of each lap of the playground before counting their total number of laps at the end; their challenge is to do as many laps as they can and beat their personal best. We used the Sport Premium money to buy the lap bands and equipment to mark out the track. 

Our speaker!

Our speaker!  1
We used our Sport Premium money to buy this speaker; it allows us to do PE lessons outside, keep active at playtimes and is used every week for Miss Parker's 'Fitness Friday' on the playground! 

Fitness Friday!

Miss Parker is on the playground every Friday at 8.40am to get our bodies moving and brains working ready for a day of learning! Everyone is welcome; we love to see children from the local preschool, Junior School and younger siblings joining in! 

Active Bear

Active Bear 1
Active Bear is our newest addition to our Achievement Assembly bears... every day one child from each class wears the class pedometer, we record the number of steps completed at the end of every day and total them up at the end of a week. The most active class is rewarded with 'Active Bear'! 

We have invested in the PE library from 'Primary Steps in PE'. Each week children from each class take home a PE Library bag for the weekend; each bag contains equipment and an activity book. The aim of the PE Library is to get children more active at home and to encourage more physical play with their parents/siblings; we used the Sports Premium money to fund this. 

World Cup Day! 13/7/18

World Cup Day! 13/7/18 1
On 13/7/18 we had a huge intra-school competition with each class battling it out in 6 different football challenges to win our World Cup trophy! We used our Sport Premium money to fund this day with the help of the Get Ahead Partnership and 12 amazing Sports Leaders from Bottesford Juniors! See the PE page for more photos! 

Active Playtimes

The School Council met with Miss Parker to discuss our playground and what we could do to make playtimes even more fun and even more active. The children decided they would really like to play more games and in order to do this we would need some new equipment. They created a shopping list using post-its and catalogues. Here is all of our new equipment ready to go!
