Sports Funding

PE & Sports at Kirkby Malzeard CE Primary School

The government provides funding for primary schools to develop PE and sport provision. As a school we have received £16779  for 2019-2020. This funding is used to have a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning in PE/Sports lessons and is used to provide:  

Specialised professional development opportunities for staff.
High quality PE/ sports coaching for pupils.
Purchasing resources and training courses for teachers.
Developing the leadership of PE across the school.

PE / sport have always had a high priority at Kirkby Malzeard School. As a member of the Harrogate School Sports Partnership we pay an all –inclusive £1300 annual fee. This funding allows us access to their vision and mission;

‘The Harrogate School Sports Partnership is a partnership of Primary & Secondary Schools across Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon and  Nidderdale. The vision of the partnership is to create a sustainable PE, School Sport and Physical Activity system as part of the core provision for all children and young people. Their mission therefore is to positively impact on the life of every young person attending partnership schools through the opportunities they provide. Both their vision and mission is promoted through their core School Games values of Determination, Honesty, Passion, Respect, Self-belief and Teamwork.’

We know our sports funding has been used successfully because:

All children from R-Y6 partake in intra-school competitions.
All children from Y1-Y6 have the opportunity to take part in out of school competitions, at which they perform well.
Our children are increasingly more active at break-times and possess extremely enthusiastic attitudes towards health and fitness.
There is a continued and developing range of extra-curricular sporting activities.
We achieved a Bronze School Games Award.
Gifted and talented children are identified and directed towards further training / competitive opportunities.

All children make progress in PE & Sports from their starting points.
The leadership and co-ordination of Physical Education is strong.
80% of children in last years Y6 cohort met core swimming standards.
Last year, a group of pupils successfully reached the final of the School Games (North Yorkshire Sport).
