Impact of Sports Premium Funding  2015-16

 

This report outlines the impact of Sports Premium funding up to the end of the Spring term.

 

We continue to be active members of the Letchworth and Baldock School Sports Partnership.  This allows us to compete in a variety of sports competitions against others schools.  So far this year we have competed in the following events:

  • Olympic Celebration Event
  • Sportshall Athletics
  • Boys’ Football Tournament  (x 2)
  • Girls’ Football Tournament  (x2)
  • Netball Tournament
  • Tag Rugby Festival
  • Football and Netball matches against other schools

 

The Sports Premium funds membership to this association.  We also use the funding to buy resources and equipment to allow football and netball clubs to run in preparation for matches and tournaments.

 

At the end of the Spring term, 81% of children in Years 5 and 6 had competed against other schools in some way through at least one of these events (100% of Year 6).

 

A large part of our funding has been used to provide quality PE lessons taught by coaches in specialist areas.  We have used Stevenage FC to provide football based PE lessons throughout the Year.  They will have taught all classes from Years 1 - 6 by the end of the school year.  Every class from Reception to Year 6 has also had expert dance teaching for a 6 week block and Key Stage 1 have been taught Gymnastics in the Spring term.  Children have commented on how much they have enjoyed the sessions and it is clear that their skills and understanding are being developed.  The Reception teachers commented on how much the children’s awareness of physical space and how to use it effectively had progressed during their dance sessions. 

The sessions are also of great benefit to the teachers, who learn from the coaches and build the confidence and expertise to teach these sessions in the future.  Every teacher has had the opportunity to learn from at least 2 coaches in 2 different areas of PE this school year.

 

Our after school sports clubs continue to thrive.  Exposure to these activities in school leads to a desire to continue taking part in them.  As a result, our football and dance clubs are very well attended.  We have also had player visits from professional footballers and continue to give tickets to families to watch Stevenage FC play. 

 

A further report will be published at the end of the school year.

Sports Premium 2015-16

This year, the government will continue to give Sports Premium funding to schools.  The amount we have been given is £8875.  Our plans for using the money this year are:

 

Fund a range of quality coaches to teach children in school (approx £6000)

Children will be taught football by Stevenage FC, with each class being given a terms worth of lessons. We will also benefit from player visits and match tickets that we can give away in school.

 

Each class will be taught a 6 week block of dance by a teacher from Identity Dance Club.

 

Other coaches will be used throughout the year and included here when confirmed.

 

Members of NHSSP (approx £1500 for membership and events)

We will continue to be active members of the North Herts School Sports Partnership, allowing us to participate in a range of tournaments and competitions with other schools.

 

Purchase resources to promote quality teaching of PE and for the House Games (approx £1000)

 

Impact of Sports Premium 2014-15

This reports outlines the provision funded through sports premium money.  The amount received was £8810.  The information shown below details the impact of the provision.

Part of the funding was used to fund membership to the North Herts School Sports Partnership.  This allowed children in the school to take part in a variety of competitive sporting activities.  This included the annual Olympic Celebration Event at Knights Templar, which Year 6 competed in, and an Olympic Roadshow, which took part in the school and involved all children in Years 1-6.

Competitive sporting opportunities were enhanced further with the introduction of the House Games.  Resources to get the House Games up and running were purchased using funds from the Sports Premium.  Events like speed stacking allowed children to compete against each other to earn points for their houses.  The House Games will be expanded further in the next school year to encompass a variety of sports.

85% of children in Years 5 and 6 participated in competitive sporting activities against other schools this year.  This means a very large portion of children in these years competed against other schools, many of them multiples times for football and netball teams.  30% of Year 4 children also competed against other schools.  We will look to give younger children more opportunities to compete competitively next year.

In the same way as last year, swimming was funded through the Sports Premium for children in Years 3, 4 and 5.  We are starting to see the impact of giving children more opportunities to swim.  In Year 5, 24% of children achieved the National Curriculum Award.  This award is the expected outcome when children leave Primary School.  In the same group of children only 3% had this award in the previous year.  The children have clearly benefitted from the extra year of swimming lessons made available to them.  We will continue to fund swimming lessons in the next academic year.

The school continues to offer a range of sporting activities both within lessons and after school.  Stevenage FC taught a range of sports to children in Years 1-6 and the children benefitted from visits by professional footballers and tickets to attend Stevenage FC matches.  Children really enjoyed these links and we will continue to offer them next year.

The number of children attending after school clubs is at 60%.  This is similar to last year, but the percentage of KS1 children in clubs is higher than previously at 56%. Children say they enjoy the clubs on offer.  

Some money was allocated to Early Years to allow them to buy physical activity resources, including giant soft lego, to improve hand eye co-ordination.  The children have commented on how much fun these are!

We will continue to provide children with a range of opportunities to participate in a variety of sports and clubs next year, as well as looking to further increase the number of competitive opportunities available.

Sports Premium 2014-15

 

This year, Stonehill will be continuing to offer a range of sporting opportunities to children across the school.  We have been given £8810 to spend on PE and Sport in school this year.  Some of the ways we will be spending this money are outlined below:

 

  • We are members of the North Herts School Sports Partnership.  This allows us to take part in a variety of events, including the Olympic Legacy Celebration event for Year 6.
  • Stevenage FC will be in school teaching a variety of sports.  They will also be running other educational workshops in classes and training our Year 5 children to become qualified Sports Leaders.  We also have loads of free tickets to give away throughout the year and will be visited by players from the club. 
  • Swimming will be funded through the Sports premium for Years 3, 4 and 5.  Lessons will take place in the summer term.  Our aim is for every child to be able to swim competently (25 metres) by the time they leave Stonehill.
  • Competitive sporting opportunities will be available to all.  The Stonehill House Games will run throughout the school year, allowing children across the school to take part in competitive sports and activities against each other.  We will use some of the sports premium funding to buy the resources necessary to make the House Games a success. 
  • Other Sporting opportunities will be made available to children as the year progresses. Year 3 will be having Taekwondo taster sessions in the autumn term.

Our Vision for PE and Sport

 

At Stonehill we believe children should enjoy leading healthy, active lives through sustained periods of physical activity.  Teaching will develop fundamental movement skills that children can build on, enabling everyone to reach their potential.  PE and sport will promote resilience, fairness, respect, collaboration, reflection and allow children to compete with others, developing important life skills.

 

 
 

Stonehill House Games underway!

All children in the School have the chance to compete in sports and other activities against children in other houses in the Stonehill House Games!  The House Games trophy is waiting for the winning house!  Events will happen throughout the school year, so check back here for results and the House Games league table.  Good luck to Broadway, Cloisters, Plinston and Spirella.  May the best house win!

Boys' Football Team reach quarter finals of Football League Cup

 

A proud day as stylish Stonehill reach the last 8

On Friday 21st November, our Boys' Football Team travelled to Stevenage Academy to take part in the Football League Kids Cup.  26 schools were competing, with the winners progressing to the national finals at Wembley Stadium.

 

We were in a group of 6 teams, with the top 2 progressing to the quarter finals.  The first match against Woolenwick didn't go to plan, with Stonehill losing narrowly 1-0.  We were able to bounce back in style though, recording victories against Sandon (4-0) and Walkern (3-1).  Our fourth match, against Stapleford, finished 0-0.  This left one game in the group, which proved to be crucial! Stonehill managed to score early and hold on brilliantly to beat Almond Hill 1-0.  Three wins, a draw and a defeat meant we finished top of the group and progressed to the quarter finals.

 

The quarter final was against eventual tournament winners St Edmunds.  It was extremely close. Stonehill came from 2-0 down to level the game at 2-2.  The match went into extra time, with Stonehill eventually losing 3-2.

 

To reach the last 8 of such a prestigious tournament, against some really high quality opponents, is a brilliant achievement.  Everyone at Stonehill is extremely proud.  Well done boys! frown

 

Boys' Football Tournament Report

 

Stonehill narrowly miss out on top four finish

 

On Thursday 23rd October, Stonehill took their A and B teams to the LDSSA football tournament at the Arena in Baldock.  

 

The A team won their opening game 3-1 against St Johns.  They then lost narrowly to St Marys 1-0. In the final match against Grange, a win would be enough to put Stonehill into the third place playoff.  After Stonehill took the lead early, Grange equalised with the final kick of the match, meaning Stonehill just missed out on the top four.

 

The B team lost their opening game 10-1 against St Mary's B.  They dramatically improved in their next match against Pixmore B, losing 3-0.  The final match was the B teams best performance yet, narrowly losing 1-0 to Grange B.

 

Well done to everyone who took part for both teams.  There were some great performances and everyone represented the school brilliantly.
