Sports Funding Impact – 2014/15
As a result of the sports funding, Peacehaven Heights was able to achieve the ‘Sainsbury’s School Games’ Bronze Mark Award. In terms of participation in physical activity, we consistently had 35-60% of our junior site pupils engaged in extracurricular activities throughout the year (when our base target was 20% to achieve the Bronze Mark).
Our attendance to inter-school competitions has increased and we were able to attend nine different sporting events throughout the calendar year and had some children reach county level finals. We have also been able to target less active children through some of our intra-school activities during lunchtime games with some regularly returning to take part in competitive activities.
Sports Funding Aims for 2015/16
In addition to the achievements from 2014/15, we have used the funding to improve our swimming pool facilities. All children on the junior site now receive weekly swimming sessions with a specialist swimming instructor under our enclosed swimming pool. The instructor has also begun an outreach programme offering swimming classes for all ages before and after school.
Another aim for our school this year has been to up-skill our teachers in the implementation of PE sessions. With the guidance and support of Premier Sport, our teachers are learning and improving their skills in PE while team teaching with the sports coaches. Additionally, all teaching staff attended an inset day (led by Create Development) at the start of this academic year to increase their confidence in teaching PE. Some members of our staff will be continuing these training sessions and feeding back to staff later in the year.
