Free School Meals letter 

Parent note: If your child is, or has been in the past, entitled to free school meals, the school may be able to contribute towards the cost of Clubs, Trips and Residential Visits. If you would like to discuss this further, please get in touch with Mrs S. Walker, via the school reception.

Here at Sitwell we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We also believe that a broad, innovative, high quality PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.

 

With the use of the School Sports Premium, we can continue to extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into a wider range of competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver quality PE sessions.

 

What is the Sports Premium?

 For the last 4 years, the Government has provided Primary schools with an additional grant for improving the participation and attainment of pupils in PE and Sports. For the academic year of 2017/2018, it has now officially been announced that the funding will be doubled. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will now receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil each year. Here at Sitwell that means around £19,460 for the 2017 to 2018 academic year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

2017/2018

At Sitwell, we have bought into the services of Excite Sports who are going to work alongside our vision to deliver quality PE lessons and provide an after-school club that will consist of a variety of sports and new activities. Amanda Thompson is going to continue her street dance sessions as she is a long-term partner of the school which means she shares the values and aspirations for the pupils that we do and this makes for a great partnership. Matt McQuillan is also going to continue his services of delivering the popular boot camp club.

 

With the support of Excite Sports, we are going to look to revamp the school holiday clubs to try and further increase pupil participation in physical activity outside of school.

(Please see the Excite Sports Service Level agreement & the RMBC minimum standards of delivery which all providers contracted by Sitwell for sport have to adhere to).

With careful budgeting the school sport premium will also be used for:

  • Ensuring there is enough equipment to deliver high-quality PE and sport.
  • Rewards & Awards for participants and leaders.
  • Subsidising sports events such as the English Institute of Sport, sports day and to subsidise travel costs when required.
  • Developing young leaders (Value Leaders).
  • Additional staff CPD (when appropriate).
  • Contributions to the wider sports partnerships in Rotherham, with Oakwood and with Rawmarsh School Sports Partnership in order to remain involved in tournaments & festivals in Rotherham and the further afield, such as the South Yorkshire games.

We will continue to make a small charge for holiday clubs and after-school clubs (£2.50) however, this money will be reinvested back into Sitwell school sport.
