"Unlocking Potential"

Primary PE and Sport Premium Report for 2013/14

The Primary PE and Sport Premium was launched by the government in April 2013 and is available for three years to July 2016. It is ring-fenced funding to be used by the school to improve the quality and breadth of our PE, sport and physical activity provision.


The national vision is for: “All pupils leaving primary school [to be] physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”


In the academic year 2013/14, Kirkleatham Hall School received £10’705.  The details below show how we spent the Premium and what impact it had on our pupils.


How the money was spent








Which    pupils particularly benefited

The difference we made to pupils


The impact on pupils’ achievement in curriculum PE


A specialist teaching assistant with specific sports training was employed to provide more sporting opportunities for all students in school. The teaching assistant was able to assist and often lead, quality PE lessons alongside the class teacher.


















All students

















Pupils received PE lessons of a higher quality due to the expertise of the teaching assistant working alongside the class teacher and through collaborative work between the teachers and skilled teaching assistant.








The impact on pupils’ participation and success in school sport (including competitive school sport)


An after-school Primary PE club was established at our school for the first time. Two teaching assistants were employed to assist the school PE teacher with the club.

















KS2 pupils who had previously not taken part in traditional team sports/clubs.








KS2 pupils took part in the weekly multi-sports after-school club. Students who attended this club represented the school at a district competition for the first time.  Pupils, particularly those who were not previously interested in sport increased their engagement in physical activities.

The impact on pupils’ engagement in healthy, active lifestyles


Money was invested in the school swimming facility to ensure that it continued to meet the needs of all learners within school, including students with complex, physical needs.

The teaching assistant with specific sports training also organised sports sessions and clubs at break and lunchtimes for our students.










































Students with complex needs were able to spend more time in the pool as a result of the improved facilities, increasing their mobility. As a result of the organised sports sessions on a break and lunchtime students levels of concentration were improved. Also the increased interaction and engagement that was created by the organised sports sessions meant we saw an improvement in student behaviour.



As a result of the above, the impact on pupils’ engagement and achievement in school as a whole


Attitudes:  Students are now much more interested in sports. Pupils, including those who were not previously engaged in sporting activities now regularly participate in inter-school competitions.


Behaviours: It has been observed how much better some of the pupils are able to concentrate in class as a result of being engaged in physical activities during break and lunchtimes. The structured activities at these times have in itself massively reduced the number of negative incidents that have been recorded during the student’s free time.


Skills: Students have been able to develop their skills in a much wider breadth of sports as a result of employing a sports specialist. Teaching staff have been upskilled by working alongside the sports specialist and now have a much greater understanding of the foundation skills that are required in order to teach PE successfully namely, agility, balance and coordination.
