Tang Hall Sports Premium Funding
As a whole school, we aim to promote pupils to participate in as much sport as possible including trying out alternative activities. We believe exercise holds many benefits for children such as ensuring they are leading healthy and active lives, helping concentration levels in class as well as developing competence in a range of sports. We believe that encouraging a love and respect for physical activity for life does not just stop at the boundaries of the classroom. Therefore, we are providing more opportunities for play at break and lunchtimes with each class having time set aside to use the MUGA and climbing frame. Physical activity is promoted to all our students, from recreational to competitive and we hope from this that our students are encouraged to remain active throughout their lives.
Aims and objectives
In line with the Department for Education (DfE), a high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:
• Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
• Are physically active for sustained periods of time
• Engage in competitive sports and activities
• Lead healthy, active lives

Impact throughout school
Throughout the school there has been a huge impact on PE learning due to the resources that have been put in place. All of the funding has helped improve staff teaching of sport and the resources provided to the children have enhanced their quality of learning. With regards to staff and their CPD, having the PE Mentor in has aided their development, as they have worked closely alongside the mentor. This has helped to improve the quality of teaching and adaptation of activities when teaching sport across the whole school. The school has also continued to improve and replenish PE equipment to ensure that the children are able to partake to a high level. As a school, to enhance PE teaching and the children’s experiences, we have also put together an entire week of sports. This enables them to participate in a variety of activities that includes new and exciting elements of sport. Some examples of this from previous years are, Skip2BeFit, York City Knights, Dance Group and Martial Arts. Last year the school acquired new play equipment on the Key Stage 1 and 2 playgrounds. This has enhanced each child’s physical activity by allowing them access to different pieces of equipment. For example on the Key Stage 1 playground the children have access to balance beams to aid their stability. Furthermore, on the Key Stage 2 playground the children now have a climbing elements to develop their strengths. As a result of, this the EYFS outdoor area will have a new outdoor area put in place. This will have a variety of activities to take part in to help improve their physical capabilities as well as their gross and fine motor skills.
PE and Sports provision at Tang Hall Primary School
During our PE lessons the children learn many different skills and participate in a wide range of sports. Alongside this we enter in the tournaments that are arranged by the Archbishop Holgate Partnership against other schools as well as taking part in the Primary football league for York.
We have a range of extra-curricular activities for pupils to participate in:
How improvements will be sustainable for the future
With regards to the learning for both pupils and staff, the PE Mentor is a pivotal part for staff to gain knowledge and develop their PE teaching. It will enhance the capabilities of staff as we ensure that the mentor teaches a variety of sports which will enable teachers to differentiate throughout school and use in the future. Having the PE Mentor also opens doors for the children to experience a wide range of sports, with the further addition of lunchtime and after school clubs. The variety also increases the possibility of competing outside of school in interschool competitions and then competing for clubs in the local area. Having new equipment outdoor areas on the Key Stage 1 and 2 playgrounds also introduces new areas for the children to access on regular occasions.
