Sport Premium

Sport Premium 2016-17

Burford School was granted £9,810 Sport Premium Funding for 2016/17.  This was spent on:

A PE and School Sport Activity Leader. The Activity Leader works at lunchtimes to offer more extra-curricular sports opportunities (especially for younger children), supports teachers in the delivery of PE Games lessons, supports existing extra-curricular sports clubs and develops new ones and also supports the PE Coordinator in the organisation of and participation in intra and inter school competitions. (cost £6500 approx.)

Review: Burford School continues to offer a large number of extracurricular sports opportunities. The school has not participated in as many level 2 competitions as it would have liked this year due to organisational issues with local providers. However,  the school continues to organise many inter school competitions in Cross Country and Athletics. The school also competes in the local football and netball leagues. Funding is used to releases teachers to take part in these events.

Due to a change in staffing during the year the number of lunch time clubs on offer needs to be refocused- this will be a priority in 2017/18

The PE and School sport activity leader now teaches half of the PE curriculum and continues to offer many after school clubs they also coordinate external club providers with the school office.

Resources: In order to improve provision of sporting opportunities the school plans to make significant investment into PE and Sport resources this year (Cost £2500)

Review: Resources have been purchased and are effectively utilised in the teaching of PE.

Sport Specific Coaching Opportunities including working with Wycombe Squash Club and High Wycombe Sports Centre to provide high quality specialised coaching support for Teachers in curriculum lessons. (Cost. £800 approx.)

Review: Specialist coaching opportunities have been provided in Squash and Basketball. The delivery by specialist coaches has upskilled the teachers in the delivery in those sports and has provided us with improved schemes of work for the future. The children in Year 5 also experienced intra and inter school competitions.
