Sport Premium is a government funded payment aimed at improving and increasing the provision of PE in schools across the country. Offham Primary School will receive £17,000 per annum, plus £10 per child between Year 1 and 6.
We believe physical activity is a hugely important part of the curriculum and we pride ourselves on offering children many opportunities to get involved in sport, learn in an active way and increase their understanding of health and fitness. This funding has enabled us to employ the services of outside agencies and specialist coaches to come into the school and provide an enriched physical curriculum. In addition, we have used funding to improve the resources available to all pupils to enable them to be physically active during break times and lunchtimes.
Our physical provision at Offham includes:
Developing assessment of P.E, meaning childrens’ achievement is accurately assessed and monitored and therefore allowing pupils to reach their full potential. Observing specialist P.E teachers and attending external training to improve confidence and knowledge of the delivery of P.E lessons. Developing their knowledge and confidence through each teacher working with PASS Ltd for 2 terms across the year to enhance the delivery of P.E. This improves the teaching of skills in P.E to provide high standard teaching and inspirational lessons.
Outdoor learning CPD for staff.
Reviewing and updating the PE scheme of work to ensure progression across the school and meeting the needs of all children.
Leadership. The training of Year 6 pupils and lunchtime supervisors to be sports leaders, running lunchtime activities for the whole school.
Introducing a sports council to set up and develop responsibility and leadership skills; running events held at Offham school and the organisation of the sports games day.
Our extra-curricular programme has been expanded to include after-school clubs, run by ZR Sports, in a variety of sporting activities. These are offered to all year groups of the school, and a ‘Toddler Group’ to strengthen links with wider community.

Purchasing new playground equipment and floodlight to ensure children will have access to physical activity all year round.
