Norley Primary School Sports Premium Funding Breakdown 2016/17
Our allocation of Sport Premium money amounted to £8420.
During the year 16/17 we continued to join with the Frodsham and Villages Sports Partnership, costing us £3250. This has meant we can be part of wider, cluster competitions giving our children the chance to compete against schools in the North West.This includes both Key stage 1 and Key stage 2.We had a first prize in gymnastics and the child went on to represent our cluster of schools in a wider competition. We also invested in some high quality coaching for the children in key stage 2 in Rugby, Cricket and Athletics. This was linked with the competitions we took part in through the partnership and meant we got through 2 stages of the rugby competitions and had 3 good teams including 1 girls team, to enter into the cluster cricket competitions, increasing participation in competitive sports. The athletics sessions increased technique and stamina meaning we were runners up in the Tug o War competition and had lots of top 3 places in the District Sports Races and the Delamere Forest Cross Country Run. To further increase the fitness of our children we also updated our Adventure Trim Trail in the school grounds at a cost of £5000 adding a storage box and new equipment to our Buddy box, along with a soft archery set. Gazebos were purchased for the children to shelter in during the summer months as our play areas are south facing, and there were contributions to travel expenses to take part in competitions. The total spent was £11,884 showing how we take investment in sport seriously at Norley CE Primary School.
The Government has also introduced a new Pupil Premium to support children who are disadvantaged. The grant covers pupils known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous six years, service children in mainstream schools, looked-after children and pupils eligible for free school meals in any of the previous six years in non-mainstream settings.
To attract the pupil premium, pupils must be aged four and over, and in year groups Reception to Year 11 in mainstream school.
Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit. Currently (and in the past), Norley has chosen to use the funds to provide additional resources and differentiated learning support with our teaching assistants in individual and group settings, or to enable children to access additional educational experiences such as music tuition, visits and events.
