Total amount of premium: £14,846

How the premium has been spent and the impact this has on the school


Curriculum Books and Consumables - £197

Val Sabin gymnastics and dance scheme of work.

This comprehensive scheme of work for KS1 includes a teaching guide as well as planning and assessment sheets. This gives teachers to tools to confidently plan lessons based around gymnastics and dance and will improve the quality of lessons taught. This particular scheme of work also exceeds the National Curriculum requirements, aiming to drive children more.


Equipment - £1,035

This money has been spent on organisational equipment for the purpose of storing PE equipment ensuring ease of access. Money has also been invested in suitable outdoor clothing for staff as well as further PE equipment. This has enabled the quality of lessons taught to be brought up to a higher standard.


Professional Fees - £9,000

Health workshops, Fit Kids With Ben, Skipping Club, Gymnastics, Sports Coaching, Yoga Sessions, servicing equipment and EYFS PE sessions have all been funded. The workshops delivered children with a clear understanding of how to keep themselves safe when travelling around and healthy lifestyles. There is a requirement to ensure that the equipment used by children and staff are safe and ready to use. Fit Kids which is offered at lunch time ensures that children are actively increasing their physical participation and increasing their own personal awareness of their own healthy lifestyle.



All of these activities are thoroughly embedded in the school and its ethos meaning that all of these elements will be sustained in the future as the PE and Sports Premium will be increased nationally.

Extra-curricular clubs and activities on offer at

Newnham Infant School Autumn 2018











Mother Nature Science




Disco Dancing

Street Dance




As you can see from the above table, the school offers a wide-range of clubs and activities across every day of the week – many include physical activity. The diversity of the clubs on offer allows children to develop a wide range of skills.


Drama and Street Dance allow children a chance to express themselves through actions, language and dance. This can have a positive impact upon children’s confidence and self-esteem and allow them to return to their classroom environment a more confident individual.


Lego club provides children with the opportunity for children to not only develop their fine motor skills but also to let their creativity flow. Not all children enjoy participating in sporting activities and may not be overly confident in public speaking. This club allows children to develop their creative confidence which they in turn are able to share in class with the rest of the class and possibly even the school.


Mother Nature is a science-based club which allows children the chance to explore, investigate, predict and test various theories about many different areas. It allows for the curious child to find out answers to those questions they have always had.


Skipping, gymnastics, tennis and football provide a chance for children to learn, practice and develop skills as well as providing a wonderful opportunity to make physical exercise a part of their own healthy lifestyle.


Once the children are more settled into their new routines, additional clubs will also be offered in the Spring and Summer Term. These may include a chess club and a keyboard club.


These clubs also provide children with the opportunity to develop the skills of teamwork, resilience and co-operation, all transferable skills which can be advantageous to positive learning within a classroom environment.

Looking ahead to 2018/2019



To be confirmed



Focus and planned impact


1. Provide ongoing training and CPD (Continuous Professional Development) to all staff to ensure that the delivery of PE lessons continues to improve throughout the school.

2. Make sure PE equipment is consistently monitored, repaired or updated where necessary.



Planned impact


The provision for both gymnastics and dance is consistent across year groups, as classes will be following a sequential set of lessons. They have been provided with the resources (CD’s etc.) to enable the best possible delivery of the curriculum. This is something which is being monitored across the school. Skills will be continually built upon and these can be consolidated in future lessons as well as in clubs that children participate in outside of school.


Staff are being provided with ongoing training to enable them to feel more confident in teaching a variety of PE lessons. This will also reflect on the children as they will be able to partake in well planned and structured lessons which are consistently being taught to a high standard.


It is imperative that the PE equipment is thoroughly maintained and that any new equipment is of high quality to enable high quality teaching to take place.



As in previous years we are aiming for PE and sports to have a higher participation and enjoyment rate. Children will gain better fitness levels and will increase their understanding of the need for a healthier lifestyle in today’s society.


Having more of a focus on the competitive element of sports has enabled to the children to become more accustomed to learning an essential life skill – that there will be winners and losers and being able to accept that this will help children along their learning journeys. Sport Day 2018 was very successful and children were able to learn these valuable life skills.
