School Games Mark

School Games Mark Silver

The School are very proud of our Silver School Games Mark Award

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.

PE & Sports Premium

What is the PE and Sport Premium Funding?
Every year, the government provides funding to support primary school sport and outdoor learning provision.

The money is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see funds going directly to headteachers to spend on improving the quality of quality of sport, outdoor learning and PE for all of their children.

School Vision

The School Vision is for ALL pupils to leave Clutton Primary School physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

As part of our whole school development plan, we are working alongside the OPAL project and as a result have introduced active lunchtimes and outdoor learning. It is anticipated that some of the funding will be used to improve lunchtime provision for all children.  See our Outdoor Play section for more details

The aim is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in Clutton Primary School. The focus of future spending will lead to long lasting impact against the vision that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

We will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport.

In the 2017 / 2018 academic year Clutton Primary School £17,120 and Sport Premium Funding based on January census 2017 of 121 pupils.

2018 - 2019

OPAL logoClutton primary School will continue to invest a portion of the PE and Sports grant to embed the  OPAL (Outdoor Play And Learning) 

With 20% of children’s time being at play, the school supports the need to have a strategic, values based approach to play. This project includes continued workshops and staff training, which builds on participation in school games, and develop confidence in delivering high quality, active lunchtimes. OPAL shows that the impact of their programme can result in 100% engagement in active play, compared to less engagement in sport and PE lessons. Research shows that play contributes to both physical and mental well-being of children, and has considerable benefits for parents, schools and the wider community.

Sports Funding 2018 - 2019 will be based on the October 2018 census. Information regarding the amount of funding, schedule of payments and advice on how that funding can be spent is expected to be issued in Term 2 2018.

At which time we will finalise plans for the next academic year.
