In April 2013, the Department of Education announced new funding of £150 million to improve the Physical Education (PE) and Sports programmes offered by primary schools. From September 2013, schools have been held to account for how they spend this additional ring-fenced funding and will therefore be required to share details of their PE and Sport provision.
St James' Junior School is already fortunate to have two PE leaders who have successfully driven PE and Sport across the school for many years. Since September we have continued our involvement in a large variety of Inter School competitions covering a range of sports across Key Stage 2. Our achievements from these events have been reported on our school newsletter. We currently offer sports clubs after school four times a week, as well as various lunchtime clubs.
For the academic year 2016 - 2017 the school has received £9645. The school also uses additional funds from the school budget.
At St James', we are using our PE & Sport Premium to improve the quality of this provision in the following ways:
£5100 - Membership fees to the Tonbridge and West Kent School Sport Partnership based at Hayesbrook. This gives the school professional development for staff in teaching athletics, dance, cricket and gymnastics. It also provides training for Year 6 Sports Leaders and gives the school access to various local competitions.
£1300 - The Sport Partnership also run an after school club multi-sport once a week.
£3040 - Offering a free football club to all children in Years 5 and 6 led by qualified coaches.
£500 - A professional athlete will visit the school and spend a day with the children to motivate and inspire them to take up athletics.
We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal school self- evaluation. Our hopes are to achieve the following:
Through these outcomes, our aim is to develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and exercise.
In 2015 - 2016 the impact of the spending was as follows:
St James' were the district champions in basketball, competing in the county finals and finishing 4th in Kent. The school finished the season at the top of the netball league. St James' were runners up in the Tunbridge Wells football tournament, and won the district A and B leagues. The school swimming team won the district gala. The Year 5 and 6 indoor athletics team were runners up in the district competition. The girls' cricket team were the district champions and represented Tunbridge Wells in the Kent County Finals. The school won the district the Dance competition.
The school competes against other schools in Football (including girls' football), Rugby, Netball, Basketball, Chess, Cricket, Tri-golf, Hockey, Squash, Tennis, Cross-Country, Dance, Gymnastics & Athletics.
