The school receives additional funding from the government for PE and Sport, we aim to use this money to improve our provision and below is a detailed breakdown of how we achieve this for all our pupils.

Sandbrook community primary school will use the funding for PE and sport in the best way possible to ensure that all our pupils leave Sandbrook physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and life long participation in physical activity and sport.

We will ensure that the funding impacts upon the following objectives:

1. To engage ALL pupils in regular physical activity (kick-starting healthy active lifestyles), our pupils have two hours of high quality PE lessons a week. We have also (September 2016) trained 24 Sport Leaders to deliver a range of lunch-time activities, including skipping, crazy catch, multi-sports, hula-hooping and dance, in order to engage those who do not traditionally partake in physically activity at this time, by offering them something more exciting and completely different to just football.

A newly created sports council at Sandbrook (October 2016), due to pupil voice feedback, has resulted in sports sessions covering basketball, dodgeball, american football, sprinting and tag rugby being run daily again to engage new pupils in physical activity.

Furthermore, a weekly football club (40+ pupils), netball club (30+), dance club (40+) have been established in the autumn term 2016 to help engage the majority of all pupils at Sandbrook CPS. ultimate frisbee and tag rugby are ready to begin in the near future.

2. As a result of these new initiatives, the extra curricular programme enriches a full PE curriculum, taught by two PE specialist teachers, thereby raising the PE departments profile across the whole school.

3. PE staff help support all other staff at Sandbrook, in order to increase their knowledge and skills in the teaching of PE and sport, eg. new teaching staff and teaching assistants are now leading after school clubs after combining their skills in conjunction with the PE staff.

4. Our range of sports and activities are updated and adjusted on a termly basis to meet the needs of all our pupils. The sports council members from years 3 to 6 feedback their own classes needs at each half termly meeting. In addition to this all our pupils are encouraged to support and join the local clubs in the local community.

5. Once the above four indicators are met (by December 2016) we will increase our pupils participation at Sandbrook in competitive sport, once the appropriate and necessary skills levels are met. For example, two of our girls have just been selected, for the first time ever at Sandbrook, to join the Rochdale netball town team.

Competitive fixtures in football, netball, tag rugby and dodgeball are on the agenda for 2017, once pupils have improved their skills in lesson time and after school clubs. Also, outdoor and adventurous activities are planned at Hollingworth Lake for year 3's in 2017.
