Sports Funding

Government Sports Funding 2021.22

The government provides additional funding, each year, to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We receive approx £17,000. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles

The impact of the funding needs to be evaluated carefully to ensure that provision is effective in raising engagement, enjoyment and standards in sport. In line with Oftsed, here at Killinghall Governors systematically challenge school leaders to ensure effective deployment of staff and resources, monitoring the effective use of Sports funding. 

At Killinghall CE Primary School, we aim for children to participate in highly active, engaging and fun PE sessions. We develop a love for sport and exercise as well as encouraging a healthy lifestyle we hope that children continue the skills we teach through to their further education and life. We provide regular opportunities for children to be involved in competitive team and individual sports with their peers and take part in intra-school and inter-school competitions. Using part of our sports funding we have carefully selected sports coaches that deliver sessions to all children at least once a week. This allows children to have access to highly skilled coaching and a range of sporting activities. For staff this means they are able to support all children learning as well as develop their own subject knowledge. It also allows time for staff to assess within a lesson and provide on the spot feedback and support. Our PE curriculum provides a clear progression of skills and knowledge. We provide a safe learning environment that allows all children to be included in our PE curriculum. We want children to develop social skills as well as teamwork.

  • Effective timetabling gives children sufficient time to fulfil the requirement of 2 hours physical activity a week.
  • A balanced and broad curriculum that covers a range of skills and sports. These are sequenced to build fluency and ensure children are well skilled before leaving Killinghall CE Primary school
  • The PE lead, class teachers and support staff work with outside agencies to deliver
  • Sports' Coaches lead sessions for all children
  • Harrogate Town work with children to develop sports leadership skills
  • Swimming sessions at the Hydro take place for all children from yr 1 to yr 6. This makes sure children are on track to swim confidently to 25 metres or more by the end of Year6.
  • The school takes part in inter-school competitions throughout the year
  • The curriculum is challenging and engaging to all learners.
  • Yoga is developed through all staff having Level ! Yoga qualification.
PE Active journey shows how a child will keep active through their time at Killinghall.
As our PE curriculum is broad and balanced, it provides a wealth of opportunity to embrace different sports and athletes that impact our lives and British sporting history. Fundamental British Values are an integral part of this and are threaded through whenever relevant. An annual healthy living week builds links between exercise and healthy choices. Children will all experience success in their own development in sport.

SMSC in PE at Killinghall

Substantive and disciplinary knowledge
Substantive knowledge is based on the deliberate practice and development of specific skills that can be used in a variety of disciplines, sports and games.
  • Running, jumping, throwing and catching.
  • Tactics within a team game e.g. strategies for attacking and defending.
  • Being able to perform specific actions, balances and movements in line with year group expectations.
  • Being able to swim confidently and competently over 25 metres.
  • Being able to perform a safe self-rescue in water.
Disciplinary knowledge in PE comes through opportunities for children to choose and apply their own actions, balances, movements and skills. When they have mastered a specific skill, they have opportunity to apply them within sports and games and therefore have to choose different strategies and the best way to approach different challenges. As a child moves through Killinghall, their skills and knowledge around tactics become more complex and will have to work collaboratively to make decisions. There will be opportunities for children to evaluate their own performance and reflect on how they will improve next time.
Assessment in PE
 Teacher assessment will take place at the end of each half term block of PE teaching. Assessment will be by questioning, listening, and observing children at work. Staff will evidence this through notes, photographs, pupil voice and video footage. Assessment tasks are integral to the development of children’s skills. They self-evaluate at the start of a lesson, during and after the session. Discussions with the class teacher or sports coach will help identify next steps to show a progression of skills over the unit.
