Allocation of Sports Funding 2015-6

During the academic year 2015-16 Mickle Trafford Village School received an allocation of £8915 from the government for Sports Funding.  The money has been allocated in the following way to promote the teaching of physical education, encourage participation by the children in a range of sporting activities and to further promote the importance of healthy lifestyles.

All children receive 2 sessions of PE per week.  Throughout the year they follow a programme which ensures they develop their skills across a range of areas.  These include gymnastics, dance, swimming, outdoor education and team games – hitting and striking in the summer term eg tennis and rounders, as well as athletics.  In the winter terms the programme includes invasion games such as basketball, football and tag rugby.  As has been the case for the past few years, most children are taught by their teachers for one lesson and qualified sports coaches for the other.

The money we have received has been spent in the following ways:-

  • Provision of sports coaches  for EYFS - £2400
  • Membership of Sports Partnership £1,200
  • Subsidising after school clubs – Athletics, cricket, Tag Rugby, Hockey, Multi-skills and Dance - £1560
  • Provision of Lifeguard at swimming - £904

  • New PE equipment - class sets of footballs, basketballs, rugby balls and small games equipment e.g.bean bags £

The impact on our school has been –

  • Participation of children from all classes in inter-school tournaments, for example: R, Y1 and Y2 in football tournaments, Y3 in football tournaments, tag rugby, athletics and hockey ( previously under represented)
  • Introduction and involvement in new sports ie quad kids, dance, yoga.

  • Continued involvement in inter-school competitions ( rugby, football, hockey, basketball, orienteering, quad kids, rounders, kwik cricket, cross country, district sports) enabling achievement and improvement in performance, for example Mickle Trafford children are currently Cheshire Orienteering champions and bronze medallists in the British Schools Orienteering Championships. We have represented Chester in Tag Rugby at the Cheshire School Games.
