Accountability

The Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies that are put into place and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact.

Strategies for using the funding
The school has looked carefully at the needs of each student and we have decided to use the following strategies;

  • Employ specialist teachers to deliver all PE lessons.
  • Purchase materials and equipment to enable a wider range of sports offered, including the use of break and lunchtime equipment to facilitate pupils learning and play during their free time.
  • Offer free extra-curricular clubs to children in for a wide range of sports.
  • Create club links for pupils to participate in sports outside of school.
  • Organise whole school events including sports days and inter-house competitions.

Evaluation of the impact of sports premium at Kempston Challenger Academy

Objectives

  • Provide specialist teaching in all PE lessons
    In July 2016, we were able to employ two PE primary specialist teachers, one male and one female, who were able to teach PE to pupils in both KS2 and KS3. This ensured we could
    continue to deliver at least 2 hours of curriculum teaching to pupils in year 5 and year 6.
  • Increase the range of extra-curricular sports clubs.
  • Due to the increase in staffing (2 schools into 1) more clubs could be offered to for pupils both at lunchtimes and after school. We could offer more inter-house competitions, increasing the numbers of pupils who would participate during school time.
  • Bring in external coaches for the use of fulfilling extra-curricular clubs as well as opportunities
    in curriculum times
    We created links with community clubs during the academic year 2016-2017. These clubs were;
    -Luton Town Football Club – Luton Town provided curriculum opportunities for pupils in KS2 and
    extra-curricular clubs
    -Kempston flyers – provided extra-curricular opportunities for pupils in KS2 (Trampoline).
    -Cutler Hammer Cricket club–KCA became a satellite club, using funding for curriculum and extra-curricular time opportunities.
    -University of Bedfordshire – 4 th Year BA PE teachers and PGCE PE specialists.
  • Increase participation in sports competitions
    We were able to enter teams into at least nine different competitions this year, representing the school at county level in three. Due to the increase in staffing, we were able to enter ‘B’ and ‘C’
    teams in at least three of these competitions. We have also increased the number of ‘intra-sports’ competitions in school time between forms, and this has been hugely successful, with over 50% of pupils attending one of these competitions every week.
  • To achieve ‘Sports Mark Gold’ status
    Due to the increase in pupil participation in sport throughout KS2 and KS3, we were able to secure ‘Sports mark Gold’ status in July 2017.
    As a department and as a school, we feel the funding has improved the quality of physical education for pupils in KS2. We continue to find ways of increasing pupil participation and enjoyment in sport.

Other areas, money was spent –
-Netball courts marked on the school playground – to allow participation of students during play times and to give students the opportunity to get used to the court dimensions.

-Football pitch marked on the school playground – to allow participation of students during play times and to give students the opportunity to get used to the pitch dimensions.
-Football goals and nets– this was to promote lunchtime activities on the grass area.
-Table Tennis tables and bats – to increase the number of clubs available to students at lunchtime.
-Team kits – to give the students the feeling of being a part of a school team and an identity.

-Treadmill – to allow students the opportunity to exercise in the fitness suite using only CV equipment.
