    The School Sports Premium


    Amici Dance Company and pupils from Mandeville School (funded by Sports Premium)

    There is a stronger connection between the child and adult and in some cases they seem to move ‘as one.’


    What is the Sports Premium?

    The Government is providing funding to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in school.


    How is this funding being used at Mandeville School?

    For the financial year 2016/17 Mandeville School recieved a sports premium of £8,435. 

    At Mandeville School we will be spending this in the following ways:

    1. Increased confidence knowledge and skills of staff in teaching PE and Sport – in particular Dance
    2. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to PMLD pupils 2ii.Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of PMLD staff
    3. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
    4. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kickstarting healthy, active lifestyles

    How will we monitor the impact of this funding?

    We will evaluate the impact of the funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use the funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance level they are capable of. We will look at progress in PE and other physical activites (eg physiotherapy programmes) as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem and confidence. Evidence will be based on both formal and informal assessments using our school systems as well as feedback from staff and families. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
