Sport @ Clifton - Our Commitment:
At Clifton, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being to all of our pupils. We believe that a continued innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities has a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of every single learner in our school. Our Primary School PE and Sport Funding will enable us to extend our provision through using the skills of additional sports professionals, entering into a wide variety of competitive sports events and training staff to deliver high-quality PE sessions across the school.
What is the Sports Premium?
The P.E and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the P.E and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.Schools are to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Key Indicators of success:
the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
What does Clifton offer for P.E and Sport in order to promote this vision?
Clifton has always been a school that understands the importance of P.E and Sport to our learners and we strive to ensure our pupils experience a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities. All children are involved in competitive sports as part of P.E lessons, extra-curricular clubs, cluster tournaments as well as Intra-House sports competitions that occur at least once every half-term. For our most able sporting pupils, we encourage them to compete in district events in school time in order for them to be able to showcase their talents and compete against others working at the same level. Clifton is an integral part of The Chantry School primary school sports cluster. This cluster of schools has a very clear vision for P.E and Sport which involves increasing the opportunities for competitive sports for all pupils as well as aiming to increase the levels of participation of girls in sport. In 2017 - 2019, the cluster action plan is focussed on maintaining the strong sports cluster already in place as well as working together to promote sport and healthy lifestyles to those children in the cluster who are less active.

How will Clifton measure the impact of the Sports Premium September 2016 – July 2018?
We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Measuring the impact of the activities provided with sports premium funding can be achieved in different ways. We will look at progress in PE as well as other areas of development such as self-esteem, confidence and the numbers of pupils involved in sporting activities in and out of school. Assessments are made both formally and informally using our school assessment systems as well as feedback from staff and visitors to the school. We will also evaluate the impact of professional development opportunities in improving teaching and learning in PE.
How did Clifton utilise the Sports Funding in the academic year September 2015 – July 2016?
From September 2015 we received funds of approximately £8,325 to support the development of Physical Education and Sport in school. To provide for the areas of PE, School Sport and Healthy Lifestyle the school:-
