Aims and Vision 2017/18

Our aim is to improve year on year the opportunities we provide for our children, in order for them to learn positive behaviours that will be sustainable, encouraging lifelong, active, healthy lifestyles.

We will measure the impact of our use of Sports Premium Funding against  the following five key indicators, as set out by the government.

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity- the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for a 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

For details on how we plan to spend current funding please read our Sports Premium Strategic Plan for 2017/18.

As part of the delivery of our PE Curriculum, children throughout the Academy attend swimming lessons at Dursley Swimming Pool for six weeks of the year. For further details of how we are meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety please click here.

How we make our provision sustainable

At Dursley C of E Primary Academy we are proud of our reputation for excellence in sport and physical education.

We have a record of encouraging broad participation in a wide range of activities. Dursley’s teams take part in competitions (tournaments, festivals, galas and athletics events) in twelve different sports/activities – often with much success. These include boys’ football, girls’ football, tag rugby, netball, hockey, boys’ cricket, girls’ cricket, rounders, swimming, athletics, cross-country, running and dance. Participation and success are regularly highlighted in our Celebration Worship on Fridays.

This year, we have already won the District football tournament and will be representing the district in the County Championships in December.

Our dedicated staff will be providing the following sporting clubs this academic year.

  • Year 3 and 4 football club for boys and girls
  • Year 5 and 6 football club for boys and girls
  • Year 5 and 6 netball club for boys and girls
  •  Year 3 to 6 Cross country club
  • Year 3 to 6 badminton club for boys and girls
  • Year 1 and 2 badminton club for boys and girls
  • Year 1 and 2 Sport skills club
  • Rugby club
  • Hockey club
  • Dance club
  • Table tennis club
  • Athletics club
  • Rounders club
  • Cricket club
  • Other clubs will be added depending on the responses to pupil voice interviews and questionnaires suggesting which clubs children would like to have.

After school clubs or coaching opportunities are offered in all these sports and in 17/18 we have extended provision to Badminton and Table Tennis. We are able to signpost families to several local sports clubs with whom we have strong links including Cam Cricket Club, Dursley Rugby Club, Dursley Girls Football Club, Everside Football Club, Slimbridge Football Club, Dursley Ladies Hockey Club and Wotton Hockey Club and Dursley Dolphins (Swimming).

When reviewing the impact of PE Premium:

  • We monitor the  participation rates in such activities as games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics.
  • We monitor the increase and success in competitive school sports.
  • We monitor the PE curriculum and its inclusivity.
  • We monitor the growth in the range of provisional and alternative sporting activities.
  • We monitor the partnership work on physical education with other schools and local partners.
  • We monitor links with other subjects that contribute to pupils' overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural links.
  • We monitor the awareness amongst pupils about dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupil's health.
