Sports Premium:

Sport and Physical Education are very important to us at Bransgore and we pride ourselves on the range of activities we offer both within and beyond the curriculum. Physical Education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include athletics, dance, ball games, racquet sports, gymnastics, outdoor and adventurous activities, cycling, swimming and water safety. We encourage active playtimes and our older pupils are trained as play leaders supporting the younger children. We aim to encourage pupils to lead a healthy lifestyle, making positive choices within and beyond school.  We try to encourage healthy snacking and an understanding of the importance of a balanced diet.

P.E promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle whilst at the same time building self-confidence. Through this approach we aim to help pupils make informed and positive choices about physical activity throughout their lives.

Competitive Sport supported by a positive and enabling ethos is encouraged throughout the school. Children are given the opportunity within lessons to compete against each other in a variety of different games. Intra-school competitions take place regularly as well as inter school competitions where the children compete against other schools. We have introduced “house teams” so that we are more easily able to organise pupils for small intra school tournaments during our 'Golden Time' activities.  These events are supported by Ringwood Senior School Sports Leaders.

We try to use upcoming high profile sporting events to fire pupils’ interest in sport. Here at Bransgore we endeavour to motivate and encourage as many of our children to participate in a range of sporting activities as they can beyond the curriculum. We aim to do this by fostering links with local sports clubs, coaches and our feeder secondary schools. We aim to expose pupils to the widest possible range of physical activity so they may find something they excel at or enjoy and which may become a lifelong passion or pastime. We aim to light the spark and then, if necessary, help pupils who show exceptional skills or talent to make contact with clubs and coaches who can help take their development to the highest possible level.

In recognition of our commitment to School Sport we have signed up to the Sainsbury’s School Games award and website where we register and record our sporting endeavours.

We are proud to have been awarded School Games GOLD award in 2018-19!

The Sports Premium:

To encourage and support us in bringing about sustainable PE and school sport, the government has allocated each primary school a sum of money to improve sport and physical health.  This funding has been increased and extended to 2021-22.

Sports Premium 2021/22 - The school is expected to receive £18,950 for the current academic year.

Sports Premium 2020/21 - The school received £18,950 for the academic year.

Sports Premium 2019/20- The school received £18,940 for the academic year.

Our aim is that:

P.E teaching/ provision will be outstanding and the staff will be confident and able to sustain improvements beyond the years of sports premium funding.

We will do this by focusing on the DFE’s 5 indicators for improvement in PE and school sport which are:

  • Increase engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport.

Review of key Objectives for 2018-19



Re-establish the daily mile and other regular daily activities such as playtime sports and climbing to ensure all pupils are active for a minimum of 30 mins. per day at school.

The daily mile track has been laid and the pupils are using it daily. As well as this we have also managed to raise funds for two playground areas which develop balance, core strength and stability. The track and play areas are utilised during learning time, playtime and after school. Pupils have been trained to use the equipment correctly. All pupils are now benefiting from at least 30 mins. of exercise per day.

Introduce an intervention to support those pupils who are less physically active or less confident participants in physical activity so that they increase fitness and build confidence to lead healthy and active lives.

We have not managed to make this club happen due to unusual and unplanned for staffing shortage over the past year. This objective will be moved forward onto the new plan for 2019-20. The introduction of healthy playtimes and active playtimes, daily mile track and physical play spaces has really helped less active pupils get involved in more physical activity.

Ensure we are able to access and achieve the school games mark bronze or silver in 2018-19.

We are delighted to have made better than expected progress in this area and we have been awarded School Games Gold award for 2018-19. This means that we have achieved our stated objective over a year ahead of schedule. We now aim to increase the number of competitions we enter for as well as hosting some events here at school.

Embed the use of PE passport and support the training of staff to use it as an assessment as well as planning tool. Train staff to use I-pad based demonstrations and whiteboards in class to help pupils self-assess their own performance.

Staff are confident to use the PE Passport and have started to use it as an assessment tool but we need to embed this fully and build staff confidence so that the PE subject lead is able to take the data and analyse a full picture of the school. We need to continue to use the online demo. that some teachers are currently stronger at using than others. This is a priority along with training from PE Passport staff this coming academic year 2019-20.

Work with local clubs and sports groups to increase range of activities and sports pupils are exposed to over the year and encourage them to take this interest further by joining clubs beyond school.

We have increased the involvement with local clubs and have had taster sessions and days and we now have a good relationship with Rippa Rugby and have developed an after school club for this. We are negotiating with a fitness training organisation to provide strength and conditioning type training at an appropriate level for pupils as well as yoga, tri golf, cricket. We are also looking at other clubs to link with.

Pupils in early years have the opportunity to learn to ride a bicycle. By the end of FS 80% of pupils can ride a 2 wheeled bike. Core stability and gross motor skills are improved

Bicycles and balance bikes are now a regular part of our continuous provision. Our pupils now have road markings on the playground to cycle around. We use balance bikes safely and also some pupils are beginning to experiment with pedal cycles. A significant number of pupils were able to use a 2 wheel pedal cycle. This is now an established part of our EYFS continuous provision.

Pupils in KS1 and KS2 as well as those with SEND and those in the Early Years will have access to competitive PE and sports opportunities within school and between schools. As a  result they will participate more fully and learn to compete in a positive manner

We have increased our participation in events for all pupils including SEND festivals. We have trained staff in first aid and to drive mini-buses so that they are able to accompany pupils safely to activities and festivals/ competitions. As a result of this the school has been awarded My School Games Gold for 2019-20. We aim to compete in even more inter and intra school competitions and festivals in 2019-20.
