Our Vision for school sport & P.E.
Calstock CP School demonstrates a commitment to every child, whatever their individual needs and abilities, to achieve their full potential in sport and P.E.


The school receives PE and sport premium to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport.

In 2015/16 we used our funding to fund support from Arena (staff training and support, participation in leagues etc for pupils) and towards the cost of employing a sports coach.  Please see the PE & Sport Grant Expenditure Report 2015 16 below for more detailed information. Key successes included:

  • High participation rates - 87% of our KS2 children attended at least on extra-curricular PE club.
  • Improved breadth of experience for children as part of curriculum PE, including outdoor learning, tennis and table tennis.
  • Success across a broad range of sports, including area sports, cricket, netball, table tennis, cross country and tag rugby.
  • Increased confidence of class teachers - as reported by teachers and confirmed in lesson observations.


For the 2016/17 academic year we plan to spend our PE and sport premium allocation as follows:

Arena Support    £425
Sports Coach (portion of cost) £7,885
Total PE and sport premium funding £8,310


We want to maintain and build on our good participation rates, breadth of experience for pupils and high level of attainment. With the class teachers all moving year groups and Mr pengelly new into class two, it is important to continue teachers' professional development in PE to ensure that our progress is sustained.  Rather than focusing only on whole school measures of attainment and participation, we have also identified pupils who would benefit from targeted support.

Our sports coach will:

  • Use lunchtime clubs to support identified pupils in meeting their individual targets in relation to physical co-ordination, awareness of healthy diet, participation in physical activity, confidence and social skills.  
  • Continue to develop the quality of curriculum PE through demonstration lessons for teachers, observations of and feedback to teachers and arranging CPD including courses for staff to meet individual CPD requirements.
  • Continue to broaden the range of PE activities experienced by pupils, this year introducing yoga and preparing to introduce climbing next year.
  • Sustain the range of extra-curricular activities offered, the high participation rates and the high standards of performance.
  • Ensure that both curriculum PE and extra curricular PE clubs have a high profile throughout school and are well co-ordinated.

These improvements will be sustainable through:

  • improved teacher confidence and capability in teaching PE
  • increased confidence of the subject leader
  • equipment purchased to support this year's activities
  • higher profile of PE through the school
  • teachers building on the improvements in pupil confidence, co-ordination and understanding of healthy choices for targeted pupils

Interim assessment of impact of 2016/17 actions

  • Each of the extra-curricular sports and PE clubs has been as well or better attended as last year.
  • Teachers report improved understanding and confidence in delivering PE.  (Lesson observations to be carried out.)
  • Pupil interviews conducted by the headteacher indicate that lunchtime activities are making a positive impact on the confidence, social skills and understanding of healthy lifestyles of the target pupils.
  • PE and sport have a high profile in the school, including through display boards, assemblies and newsletters.
  • Pupils have experienced new activities through the curriculum, with more to follow in the summer term.

A full impact assessment will be carries out in autumn 2017.
