Sports Premium 2017 -18



Key achievements to date:

Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

Continued growth of our Enrichment offer. Enrichment is a weekly activity chosen by children (six weeks per activity) to develop their Health and Wellbeing through a variety of activities. Children can select from activities such as Cheerleading, Boxercise, Kung Fu, Rugby, Fencing, and Futsal with the aim of developing their understanding and skills.


Our Before and After School Provision have gone from strength to strength with over 40 weekly activity clubs on offer across the school. Many of our offers are school funded, paid for via the use of external service providers or delivered by members of staff.


Mission Grove Primary School continues to commit to delivering 2 hours of curriculum Physical Education per week for each of our pupils across the whole school.

At present Mission Grove Primary School has ranked outside of the top ten achieving schools in Borough wide sports competitions. We strive to make the pupils the best they can be and firmly believe that higher placing in Borough competitions are possible. For the year 2018-19 we aim to have 80% of participants entering competitions to finish inside the top ten places across KS1 & KS2. We aim to achieve this by focusing on the yearly competition calendar to closely target each event, setting up clubs or coaching sessions, to provide children with best opportunity to achieve at events.

Swimming Costs


(Evidence) March 2018- Review audit of Incerts Assessment tool shows an increase in the amount of teachers who have assessed pupils in P.E.


(Impact) Subject Leader has used information to draw up list of teachers who will require more support in the Summer term. This will increase the quantity of quality lessons.






(Evidence) February 2018- During the Autumn and Spring terms, of children’s selected Enrichment choices, 55% were made up of Health and Wellbeing specific activities.

(Impact) Children enjoy their opportunities to choose their own activities within the Enrichment Hour. They also enjoy the high volume of sports on offer. This has also seen an increased take up of related after school club places.



(Evidence) December 2017- On the North site year groups are assigned specific days for which the get to play football. On the South Children share the pitch daily with specific twenty minute slots allocated to girls only.

(Impact) We continue to see the benefits of organised lunch time sport. Children are fully aware of their slots and plan their lunchtimes around the schedule. The provision of a coach allows the sessions to be managed successfully and improves the enjoyment of the children taking part. It also enhances their physical exertions.


(Evidence) March 2018- Children access at school and home Dance and Fitness workouts in 5-minute-bites. Classes have a wide selection of workouts and children look forward to workouts especially in the EYFS and KS1 classes.

(Impact) Increased profile of physical activity being ‘fun’ and ‘exciting’ for our children from an early year helps to develop life long active children.


(Evidence) October 2017- June 2018- Children from years 2 to years 5 will have had a minimum of 5 hours swimming up to a maximum of 20 hours. Children travel by coach to the Olympic Park to swim in the Olympic Pool. This will provide an inspiring venue to learn how to swim. Year 1 will have a taster lesson towards the end of the summer term.

(Impact) Year 4 Two Week Swimming Analysis- 124 children took part in swimming lessons. At the start of these swimming sessions 27 of those children could not swim without floats. Only 10 (8%) of those children could swim the required 25m by the end of primary school.

At the end of their two week swimming sessions 123 out of the 124 children taking part, could now swim at least 3m. Initially, 10 children could swim the required 25m but this number has ballooned to 59 out of the 124 children. 47.5% of those taking part.

The next steps will be to increase the number of teachers who regularly assess during P.E so it accelerates pupils’ development through more focused, target specific, teaching.












Continue to offer rich variety of exciting options within Enrichment hour by mixing and matching adults and activities across the school entire school. This will allow children to have access to the full range of offers.













Identify members from the support staff who is willing to be trained up to eventually take on the role. This would provide us with potential for significant savings and more sustainability.














Continue to use subscription of 5-a-day as the children and adults continue to use and enjoy participating in the workouts.


Ensure that login details are sent home so children can access 5-a-day outside of the school day.








Children are able to swim for free in Waltham Forest as well as sign up to swimming lessons across the Borough. We aim to sign post children and parents to these locations and encourage greater participation.


Target the 52.5% of children who are not able to swim the required 25m so they can become competent swimmers.

Provide opportunities for the 47.5% already swimming 25m to develop a range of swimming strokes and to perform safe swimming rescue techniques in their next 2 week (10 hour).

Sustainability and suggested next steps:

We currently use a House Points reward system in school based on Olympic values to raise sporting aspirations; foster teamwork and celebrate behavior attainment.















We celebrate nationwide events such as Sports Relief &

National School Sports Week to raise attainment through personal improvement. Children are encouraged strive to be the best they can be.























Our school reward system is based on House Points. Houses are named after five British Olympians (Ennis, Holmes, Farah, Wiggins and Peacock). Children are assigned a house team from Reception and continue throughout their primary journey.


Promote and celebrate the Olympic values and use these as basis to reward children across the school. This culminates in weekly assemblies to celebrate successes.



Responsibility of whole school from middays to head teacher to drive the system.














Part of coordinator release time
























(Evidence)- March 2018- Children hold weekly assemblies to celebrate achievements and receive frequent updates on House Points standings, both in classes as well as across year groups to foster closer bonds within houses.


(Impact) Children are developing a greater understanding of the Olympic values and how they help to make us the best they can be. House Points system also acts as a great behaviour management tool, allowing children greater access to their learning.

(Evidence)-March 2018

Our pupils participate in National initiatives, which spans across curriculum areas. Sports Relief encourages our children to look after ‘those less fortunate’ and foster a sense of Respect & Friendship. Children raise money through sporting activities such as running a mile or dance-o-thon.

(Impact) Sports hold a prominent role amongst the pupils and adults across the school. Through the power of Sports children learn to help those less fortunate than themselves by raising money during Sports Relief 2018. Children made pledges, and with the support of staff could perform them with the aim of raising money. Children used their pledges to push for personal bests in a variety of sports.


Next step is to provide Houses with the chance to take part in ‘wow’ end of year prize for winning team. Last year it was a trip to the Athletics World Championships.














Develop links with local clubs and secondary schools to provide children with opportunities to further their sporting interest. Also seek out opportunities to bring high class sporting events or performers to the children to help build and sustain interest.


Invite Inspirational Speakers to visit the school to inspire pupils to harness the power of sports to help make a positive difference in their life and of those around them.
