How has Sport Premium 2013/14 impacted on life at Phillimore?


  • Increased confidence and competence of staff to deliver high quality PE lessons (evidence: feedback from staff and emails)

    “I think Joe has been great, I have learnt a lot from him” (Y3 teacher about the Games CPD)


    “Had a good session with Diane on Thursday. Really useful” (Y2 teacher about the Gymnastics CPD)

Dancing was great, my class responded really well. I am getting lots of ideas for planning; sometimes I even get ahead of Louise. I end up running backwards and forwards joining in and making notes. It is going to be good when we do the Tudor dance as well as it is such a different style of dancing” (Y4 teacher about the Dance CPD)

  • Units of work covering learning outcomes, learning objectives and progression uploaded on to staff share for following year group teachers to use (evidence: ‘staff share’)

  • Increased enjoyment and skill level for all pupils involved in the CPD lessons with a specialist: F1, F2, Y12, Y2, Y3, Y4, Y5, Y6 (evidence: writing and discussions with pupils)

  • Sport Premium ring fenced funding has increased the status of PE. Everyone is more aware of the importance of PE and School Sport. City wide opportunities are more readily encouraged and facilitated (evidence: school diary and ‘Sporting Achievements’ on website); PE is on the agenda for inset training and staff meetings with strategic emphasis (evidence: agenda and planning for training delivered by PE co-ordinator)

  • Knowledge brought up to date with attendance at conferences and training courses to enable the PE co-ordinator to disseminate information (evidence: agenda and planning for training delivered by PE co-ordinator)

School Sport

  • Due to the increase in confidence, a greater number of after school clubs are being offered by staff who now feel comfortable and are keen to do so (evidence: comparison table below)

Summer 2013

Summer 2014









Sitting Volleyball

Energy club

Goal ball

New Age Kurling




  • Increased number of pupils who previously have not taken part in either after school clubs or competitions including pupils with disabilities, Muslim girls, lower KS2 pupils, KS1 pupils (evidence: registers) enabled by new equipment and adults to deliver

  • Hosted an Olympic legacy grant from the British Olympic and Paralympic Association to roll out Paralympic sports across schools in Sheffield and run a Paralympic Sports competition supported by mainstream and special schools. Schools more receptive and enthusiastic due to the emphasis on PE and School Sport (evidence: feedback from schools, photos, report sent to Get Set, BOAPA)

  • Success (evidence: winning performance at UK School Games 2013 and subsequent appearances at Master Cutlers Centenary Dance and Sheffield Hallam University’s Primary and Early Years Conference; Athletics city finals 2014; Winners at the British Olympic and Paralympic Association’s National Paralympic Day Competition 2014)


  • Awareness of need to tackle diet as well as physical activity. Increased collaboration between active playtime co-ordinator, healthy schools co-ordinator, home to school link worker, learning mentor and PE co-ordinator (evidence: minutes of meetings and action plans)

  • Active playtimes improve as lunchtime supervisors work alongside coach delivering lunchtime activities (evidence: feedback from pupils and staff, photos)
