Effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation

The impact of sports is continuing to make progress throughout the school. The children benefit from sport in a variety of ways impacting on their progress and abilities in all areas of their development.

Chapel High School and Buxton Community School provide an extensive inter sports competition calendar. The impact on the children by attending these competitions is not only shown through the enjoyment of the children with the children’s understanding of the game they are competing in but the development of the skills taught in school. The children benefit considerably by competing against their peers from within their cluster.

There has been extensive research from various sporting institutes, including ‘Sport’ England’ that support the benefits of children competing, these include:

  • Health impact
  • Physical activity, including sport, is linked to reduced risk of over 20 illnesses, including cardiovascular disease and some cancers
  • Social and cultural impact

Published studies show the positive effects of sport on education include improved attainment, lower absenteeism and drop-out, and increased progression to higher education. For instance, young people’s participation in sport improves their numeracy scores by 8 per cent on average above non-participants.
Other studies have found that sport programmes aimed at youths at risk of criminal behavior can enhance self-esteem and reduce reoffending.

Key finds

  • Young people’s participation in sport improves their numeracy scores by 8% on average above non-participants.
  • Underachieving young people who take part in sport see a 29% increase in numeracy skills and a 12 to 16% rise in other transferable skills.
  • Chapel High School competitions are extremely beneficial to our school because of the opportunity for more children to attend competitions because of the closeness of the school.
  • We are of course aware of the growing concerns of obesity within our society and the need to provide physical activities throughout the day, which we are of course responsible for.

Overall the sports premium continues to encourage children to get fitter and be more active both within the school day and at after school clubs. Children are keen to participate and the quality of teaching and learning continues to improve as a result of the sports premium funding

How will we ensure these improvements are sustainable

Throughout the school UK Sports have impacted considerably with the CPD of all staff. Nearly all teachers have had the opportunity to observe, team teach and be observed with the excellent specialists provided by UK sports. UK sports also provide planning for all year groups which ensure all children are included in every PE lesson. They also support children over two lunchtimes a week to embed and develop skills taught in readiness for sports competitions.
