PE and Sport Premium
The Heys work closely with the Inspiring PE and Tameside School Sports Partnership, which is a collection of Tameside Schools working together to create better sporting outcomes for all of our children.
In return, the school receives many benefits such as:
- Our children experience Rugby, Hockey, Dance, Multi-skills, Athletics, Cricket, Basketball, Dodgeball, Volleyball, Badminton and Swimming in their PE curriculum lessons and Clubs
- Regular teacher meetings for PE Leaders – Mrs C Harwood
- Training opportunities for all staff – via Schools Sports Partnership
- Free entry to all Sainsbury's School Games competitions and KS1 Future Stars Festivals
- This partnership bulk buys resources on behalf of the collective of schools (ensuring value for money) and shares good practice, supports action planning and monitoring & evaluation of premium funding
- Free online fitness tools for all children to access (5-a-day fitness) www.5-aday.tv
- Monitoring support against Sainsbury’s School Games Kitemark (we are a Gold Kite Mark school) Criteria and Ofsted criteria.
Emma Toone is our link at the Schools Sport Partnership her role as Schools Partnership Develop Manager provides support, she keeps us informed of cluster events, new initiatives and Continuing Professional Development for all staff and children.
We provide all year groups the opportunity to try appealing activities that include plenty of exercise and promote wider health and well-being messages. The Change4Life clubs/Playmakers will be delivered by young leaders and other school staff during dinnertimes and after school. This will enable all children to participate.
We have after school sports clubs four nights each week for the children to attend, these include Cross Country, Rounder's, Netball, Dance, Cheerleading, Forest School and Multi sports. The children have opportunities to participate in competitions against other local schools. We have had lots of success in many tournaments i.e. Urban Street Dance champions, Silver Medals in Rounder's and Bronze in the Year 3 and Year 4 Gymnastics competition.
Children from The Heys have represented Tameside at The Greater Manchester School Games.
We are very proud to have achieved the School Games Gold Kite Mark again for 2017-2018.
Sustainability & Monitoring
We will use the funding to make high quality PE and sport sustainable and effective. Our on-going CPD programme for staff, links with Inspiring PE, Tameside School Sports Partnership and the use of coaches, volunteers and parents who have links to local clubs to provide further participation opportunities beyond the school day, will help achieve this. We will be producing case studies to highlight the impact of the PE premium which will be available to view on our website.
We will also be monitoring all activity to ensure that we can evaluate the effectiveness of the funding and the value for money it brings.
Approximately £500 will be targeted towards lunch time/after school clubs in some of these competitive sports. As part of the ‘Sainsbury’s School Games’ we will be developing our intra-school sports competitions (Level 1 and Level 2) and will target approximately £400 towards this. There will be an investment of £6000 (Specialist Teacher and TA assistant) spent on developing curriculum PE lessons. £300 will be spent on membership of a local schools working group led by Tameside School Sports Partnership. Approximately £1800 (including top up swimming) will be spent on school swimming as part of national curriculum guidelines.
The funding is used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. The Hey's are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
In October 2018, The Hey's were awarded the Gold School Games Mark for the 3rd year running. The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark.

- Is to create a culture that encourages all children to be active and have positive attitudes towards physical activity and healthy lifestyles.

- This promotes physical literacy while supporting physical development, movement skills and body confidence and also contributes to their physical, mental and social well-being.
