Sports Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

At St. Michael's on Wyre Church of England School we are proud of the P.E. and sports' provision that we can offer to all pupils, both within the curriculum and through a wide range of extra-curricular activities.


We have a sports objective, that as a school we are aiming to achieve each year, and the school sports premium helps towards this. Our SSP objective is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE.  


The School Sports' Grant is additional Government funding to promote P.E. and sport within school. In 2018/19, the school is receiving £16,000.00 from this funding source plus £10 per pupil.  This allows us to enhance our provision even further. 


The funding is being used to:

  • employ specialists/coaches to work along side staff, in sports such as hockey and rugby to enhance the education for children and to upskill the teachers;
  • pay £9078 to install trim trail activities around the running track to encourage active playtimes and to help build balance and coordination skills in PE lessons and at playtimes;
  • pay £1300 to buy into the Garstang Primary Schools' Sports' Partnership, organised by Garstang Academy. This allows children to participate in a range of coaching activities and tournaments with children from other local schools, organised by specialist staff.  Activities include netball, football, athletics, rounders, hockey, cricket, table tennis, bowls, curling, basketball and tennis;
  • pay £2310 to buy into the Wyre and Fylde School Sports Partnership. This allows children to participate in a range of activities. Activities include multi-skills, boccia, speed stacking, hockey, modern pentathlon, rugby and gymnastics. The children have also had access to a Change 4 Life club which has taught them about the importance of keeping fit and healthy as well as healthy heads. This partnership allows KS1 children to take part in sport related after school clubs, as well as children that don't usually like to take part in sports clubs;
  • pay £1390 to buy into Fleetwood Town Community Trust partnership. This allows the children to take part in their safer cycling training, employs a member of staff to come into school to support the children in playtime games, as well as training the teachers on duty and develop a good relationship with Fleetwood Town. They also provide provision for Nursery and Early Years classes. This year the children will be taking part in yoga, football and multi-skills;
  • access training for staff, through the sports' partnership,  Local Authority and sports' association course;
  • provide opportunities for pupils who are gifted and talented in sport, to develop their skills further, this year this has been provided for KS2 by Fleetwood Town Community Trust;
  • provide opportunities for pupils to participate in sports not previously on offer;
  • allow less able children to partake in sporting activities with facilities that can be adapted for their use;
  • pay £1960 to provide swimming top up sessions, for all KS2 children who cannot swim 25m;
  • pay £500 to work with dance specialists, throughout KS2 to enable the children to take part in competitions;
  • pay £225 for Simon Ardron to teach tennis to Reception children; 
  • pay £300 for a whole school fencing extra-curricular day;
  • pay £100 for extra-curricular netball coaching sessions;
  • pay £350 for a whole school wheelchair basketball extra-curricular day;
  • develop links with local clubs, eg. St. Michaels Tennis Club, Myerscough Football, Garstang Taekwondo and Garstang rugby;
  • give the children the opportunity to take part in different sports, such as ballroom dancing;
  • provide access/transport to all-weather sports' surfaces.


During 2018/19 academic year we have also used the funding to pay for trim trail activities to be installed on the school field. This track will allow the children to take part in the active mile challenge, have access to more facilities if the weather is poor and the field is inaccessible and develop their skills for outdoor activities. 


Over the next three years we want to work towards establishing seven main goals. These are;

  1. All teachers will be confident and competent in the delivery of PE. 
  2. All children will be given the opportunity to take part in competitions and festivals. 
  3. Children can articulate the importance of school sports and healthy lifestyles.
  4. All pupils will be active for 30 minutes a day in school. 
  5. PE will support the whole school outcome. 
  6. All pupils will have access to extra-curricular activities. 
  7. We WILL have made sustainable change. 


The impact this funding is having on our children, in particular KS2 children, is really good. During this academic year 100% of the children have taken part in a sporting after school or lunchtime club or a whole school extra curricular event at least once throughout the year. We are able to give all children the opportunities to take part in a variety of extra curriculum clubs. Every single child in school is given the opportunity to take part in extra-curricular club and are encouraged to do so at least once in the academic year.


The children are also learning new skills in PE as their teachers are more skilled and have fully qualified instructors working alongside teachers to deliver some of their lessons. Therefore they are more enthusiastic about their sport and are wanting to keep themselves fit and healthy. 

Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium

Extra-Curricular Sports Clubs 2018/19

During each academic year we aim to provide as many extra-curriculum sports clubs to the children as possible. These clubs are planned and based on the interests of the children in our school at that time. Not only do these clubs encourage increased participation, but they also ensure that children understand the importance of inclusion, equality and respect for others. They also help to build resilience in children. 


All children are given the opportunity to take part in extra-curricular sports. All they have to do is pick up a slip, have a parent fill it in, and return to school within the given window. As well as this, over the year all children are given the opportunity to take part in competitions against other schools. It is great to see in our school that many children want to get involved in these competitions. We try hard to ensure that all children that volunteer to take part in a sport are given the opportunity as often as possible. 


All of our in school extra-curricular clubs are available to KS2, with an increasing number being provided for KS1 also. The competitions are mainly for years 5/6 at other venues, but there are an increasing number of competitions that are being offered to years 3/4. 


At St Michael's we also put on a health week for the children every other year. During this week the children learn all about keeping their bodies and minds healthy and take part in a range of different sports, some which they might never have had the opportunity to do before. Sports include pilates, yoga, taekwondo, tennis, Zumba, cardio kickboxing, tennis and Quidditch. This year the children have also been lucky enough to take part in the Joy of Moving festival provided by Fleetwood Town Community Trust.
