Sports Premium

During past years, the government has allocated schools a sum of money, which is dedicated to enhancing and improving the provision of PE and Sport.

We are delighted that they have announced the continuation of this PE and Sports Premium for the 2022/23 academic year.

The fund helps schools to deliver additional sporting opportunities to children and to raise the profile of sport within the school community and beyond.

Our key successes at St Andrew’s over the past year include:

  • The delivery of a cultural dance day, where the children were able to immerse themselves in dances from Italy, India, Africa and New Zealand.
  • The addition of Paralympic sport to our PE curriculum.
  • An improvement in the amount of year 6 who have met the national swimming targets from 71% in July 2021 to 93% in July 2022.
  • A successful collaboration with Woodroffe to offer all teachers CPD and opportunities to team teach with a secondary PE specialist.
  • Subsidised after school sports clubs for all children.
  • PE intervention groups for selected children.
  • Collaborations with sporting stars and clubs including Somerset cricketer Josh Davey, the Lawn Tennis Association, Devon Cricket and Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club.
  • Taking part in Acorn Multi Academy Trust, East Devon and Triangle Tournament sporting events:
    1st – Acorn MAT Handball Tournament.
    2nd – Acorn MAT Football League.
    2nd – Acorn MAT Swimming Gala.
    Finalists – Devon Virtual Gymnastics Event.
  • Continued involvement in Stockland Cross Country.
  • Submission of a strong application through the School Games Mark award scheme. We are overjoyed to share with you that we have been awarded GOLD!

We are very proud of our successes but would still like to achieve more.
For 2022/23, our targets are:

  • To give our pupils a greater voice to enable us to shape our provision to suit their interests and needs.
  • To further develop the role of play leaders within our setting.
  • To adapt our PE and sports delivery so that ALL children can say that they enjoy PE. During our last pupil survey, we had two children in key stage 2 who stated that they do not like PE.
  • To offer our children the opportunity to attend a live sporting event.
  • To enable our children to experience more non-traditional sports as well as popular sports.
  • To be innovative, ambitious and strive to be even better.
