How Will You Spend Your Sports Premium?

The continuation of sports premium funding will help schools continue to use physical education, sport and physical activity as a tool to improve educational attainment, emotional and physical health and wellbeing.

Our Sport products ensure pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle and commit to a lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Here are a few exciting and effective ways to spend your Sports Premium:

The are so many exciting options that will achieve the following objectives:

  • Increase pupil participation in competitions, sport and events.
  • A lifelong positive attitude to exercise and a healthy lifestyle 
  • Broaden the sporting opportunity available to pupils.
  • An opportunity to experience success beyond the academic area
  • Train pupils to become Young Sports Ambassadors (to support their pupils throughout the school in physical lunchtime activity).
  • Improvements in curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities 

A school surveyed their children to measure the impact of their new MUGA (Multi Use Games Area):

  • 96.3% of KS2 Children say they do more or the same amount of exercise than last year.
  • 62% of KS2 Children say they do more exercise than they did last year
  • 79% of KS2 children use the MUGA either ‘every day’ or ‘most days

The main objectives when developing the playground was to encourage physical activity in a fun and engaging way. The fantastic variety of equipment provides physical challenges that develop balance, hand to eye coordination, climbing confidence, upper and lower body strength, core stability and gross motor skills, but more than this it aids the development of a vivid and creative imagination within our children. New and wonderful games have been invented since the installation of the outdoor gym and trim trail and it is great to see the children work together to come up with rules and strategies for these games. I have even heard children talking about push and pull forces when on some of the gym equipment, showing that they are able to apply their knowledge to the outside world. Working with Pentagon Play has been a pleasant experience. Despite difficulties with lockdown in March Pentagon Play did everything they could to ensure we could have our playground installed and ready for use before the children came back. It was an amazing surprise for the pupils. Communication has always been clear and speedy. I would definitely recommend Pentagon Play to other schools.

All of the children are very excited and engaged. The climber and new active zone is very popular. I also believe the playhouse is very popular with lots of children wanting to play in there and use the stage. Now, every child can transition between each piece of equipment and have a go at learning in different ways and explore something they wouldn’t have done before.

The new playground is a gorgeous addition to our school and as we told you today, and as you saw, it has been exceptionally well received by staff, parents and most importantly of all, the children.

In the ten years that I have been at Tiverton Primary School as head, and over all of the changes we have made and introduced, the new playground has received by far the largest number of accolades, whoops of delight and heartfelt praise, much of it still continuing,
