How the fund has effected attainment at Greatworth

The effect of the premium on pupils PE and Sport participation and attainment in the school has been clearly defined by the interest and achievement in out of school athletics at the local secondary school. The regular visits also familiarise students with the secondary school disciplines and environment ahead of their moves from year 6 in to secondary education.

The celebration of these achievements in our clubs are celebrated in assembly which has been warmly received by the students and parents, also the parents have given feedback on the encouragement that these activities has given to join out of school clubs.

There was a higher take up to the athletics participation and attainment in dance and PE from the feedback, take up for the cricket team was higher than previous years with our Year 5 & 6 children going to Chenderit Secondary School in Middleton Cheney to participate in their Cricket Festival. They joined 5 other schools in a round robin tournament. Each innings was 8 overs with 4 balls per over. Only 8 children played at a time and they swapped around the players. They thoroughly enjoyed their games against Farthinghoe, St Loy’s and Middleton Cheney.

Sustainability of Improved Attainment

As a school who places particular emphasis on Music, Dance and the Sports, our aim is to ensure that our achievements in this year are sustained by continuing the variety of the sports we offer, continuing with the high level of tutorship from outside suppliers such as Inspired PE and Natalie Fox and continue the celebration assemblies for sports inside and outside school.

How the fund has effected attainment at Greatworth

Greatworth Primary School believes that arts and sports are essential in developing resilience, creativity and imagination. Because of this, we have dedicated the majority of our Sports Funding Grant for this financial year in developing our Performing Arts and PE departments. We also believe that putting learning in to real life contexts adds value and for this reason, we have also decided to continue investing in our partnership with Greatworth Hall Farm.

The level of concentration has improved in the classroom, and the confidence in pupils who were lacking in social development has improved due to the emphasis in the class day not being solely focused on core subjects. It has been noticed and fed back by the majority of parents.

Sustainability of Improved Attainment

We have committed our funding to weekly lessons in these key areas with our professional partners, and have in addition, funded our teaching team to train with them in learning some key skills to utilise in the classroom bringing the Arts in to our core curriculum and not just an added “extra” this ensures that the continuation of the level of attainment that we are seeing sue to these areas can be planned internally if required in the future.

If the level of funding in this grant is not sustained, we need to ensure that we do not as a school fall back on this provision.

Participation in Inter-school games competitions

This programme enables our children to participate in competitions and festivals which encourage children to enjoy new sports. So far this year we have competed in cross-country and Y34 Sports Hall athletics competitions. For each of these events 25 children participated and children and parents enjoyed the team spirit and developed their growth mind-set and rewards of their hard work.
