PE Sports Funding
Our goal is to help children develop a thirst and motivation for being physically active for life. Sport and PE at St Hilda's strives to create opportunities for children to develop their resilience and progress into secondary school education as confident and competent movers.
Here is what your child’s physical development journey will look like at Hovingham and St Hilda’s CE VC Primary Schools Federation:
- EYFS children work towards achieving their early learning goals in physical development, moving and handling. Through areas of outdoor provision, children are able to choose and explore different ways of moving, balancing and handling in a fun environment. They also begin to learn how to interact and communicate with other children and assess risk.
- KS1 children experience a broad range of activities that focus upon developing their physical literacy. A child who is physically literate is able to confidently move, balance, kick, throw and catch with success. In this key stage, children take part in their first whole class PE lesson and have the opportunity to attend after-school physical activity clubs.
- KS2 children begin to apply their general movement skills to sport-specific skills. As they progress through the key stage, each child will experience modified versions of many different sports. They will learn basic rules and regulations, have the opportunity to coach others and umpire activities involving younger children to develop their leadership skills. PE in KS2 also provides the opportunity for children to learn about how the body works, the importance of a healthy lifestyle and how to develop essential life skills through applying the school learner characteristics.
Sports Premium Funding does not directly fund this. However, we have a flourishing swimming programme that ensures each child from YR-Y6 has access to a full course of Swimming Lessons annually.
We also have after-school clubs running every week throughout the year. Activities vary each term and all children from YR-Y6 have the opportunity to access these clubs. These clubs are led by very experienced Sports Coaches, some of whom also work alongside teachers and teaching assistants during the school day.
Competitive Sport and Sports Partnerships
We are members of the Ryedale Primary Schools Sports Partnership and in 2016-2017, each term, every Y1-Y6 pupil has taken part in an inter-school competition hosted at Ryedale School. Pupils also compete against pupils from other schools in our annual Cluster Sports Day.
The government is providing additional funding to Primary Schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. We are free to spend the money as we wish, but must report annually on our spend and the impact it has had on the pupils.

For the academic year Sept 2016 - July 2017 we anticipate receiving approx. £15,000 between the two schools. We will continue to bring the children together for regular activities, all children will have one PE session per week with a specialist Primary School PE Teacher, our offer of after school clubs will be extended and participation in intra school competitions will be continued. We also plan to have one major sporting event per term which all children will participate in, such as a visit by a GB Olympic athlete, an archery day, or a climbing wall.
