Sports Premium

Please click here to see our Impact of funding statement.

We are delighted that our Sport Premium, along with funds from FODs,  have been able to contribute to purchasing a new climbing frame for KS2 classes. This will allow our older children of the school to remain active and increase those fine and gross motor skills that are an important part of a child's development.  

We have also used some of our Sports Premium to put new markings on the KS1 playground to encourage movement and games during break times.  We are in the process of putting some on the KS2 playground too.

Sport Premium for 2018/19

At Dunholme St Chad's Church of England Primary School we pride ourselves on promoting a range of activities through the taught curriculum, extra curricular activities and visits which promote an active lifestyle. We support the government’s initiative to combat obesity and enjoy being active.

Our school vision is to create a curriculum that develops, motivates and enthuses every individual child to become a lifelong learner. We aim to give opportunities for all pupils to develop their leadership, coaching and officiating skills. As a school we want to create a buzz about physical activities where every child feels confident and ready to participate.

We are delighted to have received the Silver Sportsmark award to recognise our achievements in promoting physical activity in 2017. We are working towards achieving a sportsmark this year with our increased participation in competitions ad enrichment activities. 

During this academic year all children will have the chance to compete in sporting events, whether that be in school or as part of a tournament in another venue. Please take a look at our Active Lifestyle Newsletters below to see what we have been getting up to.

Physical Education (PE) is a statutory requirement of the National Curriculum; the aims of the revised National Curriculum with regard to PE are to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives.

Change for Life 


Change4Life's aim is to inspire a broad coalition of people, including the NHS, local authorities, businesses, charities, schools, families, community leaders - in fact anyone working with families or individuals - to all play a part in improving the nation's health and well-being by encouraging everyone to eat well, move more and live longer.

Our school supports the Government Initiative by using Change for Life Materials in school. Our Year 5 Sport Leaders run a Fun Club twice a week that supports children develop their attitudes to exercise, socializing and confidence in school. They use the pack and resources from Change for Life to plan, prepare and deliver each session. This supports our Pupil Premium Strategy by allowing all groups of children the opportunities to develop their  personal and social well being in and out of school.  The School Learning Mentor oversees the progress each child makes and monitors who attends. Our aim is that children who attend the club while in KS1 will develop the skills to become a Sport Leader in year 5 and eventually lead the club. 

The Year 6 Play Leaders are supporting the playtime supervisors on the KS1 playground to encourage children to keep active and play some games. The Year 6 Play Leaders and Year 5 Sports Leaders have recently had some training with Allison Consultancy to give the ideas about how to keep the children active through fun games.


How we spend our Sport Premium

This year we have focused spending our Sports premium on the following areas: training up staff to deliver outstanding PE sessions, Enrichment activities, participation in competitions.  In addition to the offer we also use the Sport Premium to fund Teaching Assistants to run after school sport clubs for the children.

The money is used to cover costs for a Teaching Assistant to be the lead adult when we enter competitions run by the sport partnership and cover the cost of transport.

We audit our resources and make sure that we have the correct equipment to enable high quality PE lessons to take place.
