PE Grant

PE Premium Report 2017-2018

Newport Community School Primary Academy remains very committed to the development of school sport, as reflected in the levels of participation in sport and the success of our children in local and county competitions.

Impact of Sports Premium Funding 2017-2018

The school received the Gold Mark from the School Games Mark for outstanding participation in PE and school sports.

Children from Newport had a successful year in local and regional competitions. The school football team, made up of children from Year 5 and 6, competed in the Premier League Primary Stars Invitational Tournament at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium, having qualified by winning one of five regional tournaments that were held for schools that are not serviced by one of the network of the 101 partner club community organisations. The school football team also entered the Devon FA DANONE Football Cup and qualified for the county finals down in Paignton. A team of Year 4 children came second in the local schools’ indoor athletic event and sixty children from Year 1 attended a Multi Skills festival with other local schools. Thirty Year 5 children and thirty Year 6 children had the opportunity of attending their own kwik cricket festival, with a team of ten children from Year 6 finishing as the eventual winners of the Year 6 event. Children from Year 5 took part in a handball festival for the first time and the school entered teams for the first time into the Stephens Shield cross country event, where individuals ran well, including one child who won the Year 5 event. All children from years 3 to 6 were invited to participate in local cross country festivals.

Eight Year 6 more able children attended a Rising Stars event at Bath University, where they had a very informative guided tour, took part in coaching sessions in judo, badminton and athletics, and even had the opportunity of seeing GB athletes in their training environment.

Thirty Year 5 children received training as Junior Sports Leaders and all were involved at lunch times to support active playtimes.

All children from Year 1 to Year 6 took part in outdoor and adventurous activities this year, which not only included orienteering during PE lessons, but also an outdoor and adventurous activity at an external venue. These activities included an assault course, archery, rafting, team building and underground tunnels.

All children took part in activities and challenges in school as part of Sport Relief. With the help and inspiration of Rob Mitchell, a higher jumper who has competed at the Commonwealth Games, all children from Reception to Year 6 took part in a series of exercises that were sponsored to raise money for Sports Relief. In addition, all children took part in a challenge to run for 15 minutes, in a bid to run 1 million steps as a school.

The school engaged in work with Sustrans, a UK charity that promote an active journey to school. This year, the school has had two days where children were encouraged to bike, walk or scoot to school, and this resulted in a fantastic response with 50 bikes and 175 scooters filling the bike storage area. Children were also offered a ‘Dr Bike’ service where they could get a free service to check their bike is safe to ride.

As part of our school’s commitment to swimming for all abilities, we used the continued services of Aquarius Swimschool and secured the use of West Buckland’s swimming facilities for Years 3, 4 and 5. At the end of their block of swimming 75% of the Year 5 cohort could swim competently over a distance of at least 25m using a range of strokes. This group of children could also perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

There was a large number of school-based active clubs on offer again this year. There were 18 active clubs on offer over the course of the year including a Fun Fit club specifically aimed at more reluctant children.
