BPSSCDA warmly congratulates former Perry Hall Primary pupil, Sophie Brett and the rest of the England Women's Lacrosse Team who successfully attained bronze status in the Lacrosse World Cup.

DOUBLED FUNDING OF PESS PREMIUM FOR NEXT ACADEMIC YEAR CONFIRMED    

UPDATED: 17th July 2017 (7.30pm update)

 

Also pleased to see PE & sports premium doubled for primary schools, something I know @BromleyPSptsCPD have done a lot of work on.

 

BPSSCDA can now confirm, with the kind support of afPE, that the PESS Premium will be DOUBLED as from the Autumn term. In the meantime, the proposed Healthy Pupils Capital Programme has been shelved.

 

All borough primary schools (Head Teachers and PE Subject Leaders separately) have been emailed this important update, according to presently known contact details, that also includes information regarding £1.3bn additional schools funding.

 

Further information including DfE PESS Premium criteria for spend; impact and sustainability is yet to be published and will be shared via this website upon its publication.

GOVERNMENT DROPS PLANS TO END UNIVERSAL FREE LUNCHES FOR INFANTS

Government plans to cut free lunches for infant school children in England have been scrapped.

Schools minister Nick Gibb stated that the government would "retain the existing provision", having listened "very carefully" to the views of parents.

GREENING CONFIRMS THAT SPENDING CUTS WILL NOT PROGRESS 

Published: Tuesday 27th June 2017

 

Secretary of State for Education, Justine Greening, confirms in Parliament that schools won't have budgets cut under formula funding.

 

 'As outlined in our manifesto we’re also going to make sure that no school has its budget cut as a result of the new formula,” she said, also repeating the party’s pledge to increase the overall school budget over the coming years.'

HEALTH & SAFETY ADVICE: OUTDOOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES & EXTREME TEMPERATURES

Children's health and safety is naturally pivotal when planning and delivering any form of outdoor physical activity. A number of borough primary schools have been in contact to request official guidance in relation to the staging of sports day events in the face of forecasted hot weather conditions. Following personal contact with the DfE, I can confirm the following advice:

 

‘there is no guidance in relation to specific temperatures. It is down to the judgment of the schools.'

 

Schools are however welcome to refer to the following previous DCSF instruction to support such judgment:

 

a) Primary school Sports Days should not be

    held if the forecast on the BFES news the

    evening before is over 32 ̊ C.  

b) Children are kept under shade during

    lunch time and breaks

 

The following outer borough school link

provides a best practice example in terms of

forewarning parents as well as

postponement / cancellation if necessary:

RISK ASSESSMENT GUIDANCE UPDATE FOR SCHOOLS AND EVENT ORGANISERS

In light of recent news events, the need for both event organisers and schools to deal effectively with risk assessment has never been greater. As a result of advice received from the Metropolitan Police, the following best practice should be regularly adopted:

 

  • Event organisers are responsible for attending to risk assessment checks that should factor in consideration to such issues as open public access and first aid.

  • Schools should request risk assessment from the event organisers before completing their own so as to provide fully comprehensive understanding and attention to any potential risks / hazards.

 

  • The local police station should be informed of events that attract large groups of children and young people. (Contact by phone is 101) The Met Police also have local organiser representatives in place to assist with risk assessment guidance.

 

  • Please remember that pupil duty of care away from the school premises applies fundamentally to the school still.

 

Link for additional advice:

http://www.nga.org.uk/Guidance/Pupils-and-parents/Pupil-wellbeing/Guidance-on-school-trips-and-supporting-pupils-fol.aspx

 

Finally, nobody wants to see children and young people deprived of participating in enjoyable and potentially far-reaching learning opportunities. It is just a case of all key parties always pulling together effectively with safety ultimately addressed before anything else is considered. Such an approach to organisation is already hopefully occurring in many instances - if so, then please treat this update as a polite reminder of it's continuing importance.

'An eye-opening experience seeing high quality PE taught through the whole school. The active lunchtime has also really shown how PE improves behaviour and calms the children ready to learn in the afternoon. Displays throughout the school engage,inspire and support not only the children but the staff as well and they feel confident, comfortable and supported in PE'

BROMLEY PRIMARY SCHOOLS' CROSS COUNTRY @ CRYSTAL PALACE (SAT 11TH MARCH)

Published: Tuesday 14th March 2017

 

Congratulations to the many pupils who participated in Saturday's Borough Primary Schools Cross Country race meeting at Crystal Palace. On this occasion, we had a record-breaking attendance of over 2200 KS2 children running. 

 

Thank you also to the teaching staff and parents who supported the event and we must pay special mention to the many voluntary organisers and marshals - without their assistance, there would not have been an event at all. Well done especially to Richard Edmonds (Warren Road Primary); Richard Coe (Parish Primary) ; Chris Waring; Julie Lockton and Chris Sackett (Trinity CE Primary)

EFFECTIVE ANNUAL REPORTING OF PESS PREMIUM SPEND; IMPACT & SUSTAINABILITY (2015-16)

Published 8th February: Current findings related to primary school reports stemming from Academic Year 2015-16 (April 4th 2016 deadline):

 

No report available online for last year:

21% 

Incomplete report from last year that remains online:

34.2%

No recorded profiling of breakdown of spend: 30.2%

No recorded profiling of sustainability:

48.6%

No profiling of quantified impact e.g. numbered / percentaged evidence of rates of pupil participation:

80.2%

One report posted online that covers the entire last three years:

5.2%

No report whatsoever to date citing required breakdown of spend, impact and sustainability since launch of PESS Premium Strategy

7.8%

 

Other observations drawn from observation; Subject Leader/ Teacher feedback etc:

 

a) Little evidence from too many schools of awareness and application of 'The Five Key Indicators' as expected by DfE. For example, how are you able to demonstrate impact of subject as a 'whole school improvement tool?' 

 

b) Some impact reports for this year refer to what occurred within the previous academic year when they need to be measured against targets as established for this year.

 

c) Sustainability evidently overlooked by schools whose reports online have remained virtually identical in terms of reported delivery e.g. same hockey club for the third/ fourth year running.

 

d) In a handful of cases, schools may be asked to justify recruiting external coach facilitator(s) to attend to upskilling of staff within a specific sport when the school's own PE subject leader and/or other staff colleague, is already a qualified, experienced coach within that same sport. 

 

e) Are schools collecting and monitoring the quality of lesson plans that should be provided by funded external coaches covering curricular provision?

afPE Chairman, Michael Crichton said:

 

"I would encourage every Headteacher to read the report in full and take note of the recommendations made. By doing this action plans will become more robust and focussed and lead to increasingly sustainable outcomes for children and young people. In fact the report does recommend that strategic plans should be clear and include measurable targets for improvement. It also emphasises the need to regularly monitor and evaluate the impact that the premium is having on improving the PE and sports provision." 

"As one Headteacher from one of the schools visited states: ‘The first principle is ensuring that all children get good-quality teaching in PE. If we don’t  use this funding to achieve this, then we have missed out on a huge opportunity. But we can only do this if we train teachers and teaching assistants well.’ I fully concur with his view."

HIGH QUALITY PE & SPORTS PORTFOLIO OF EVIDENCE

Given that the accountability of Primary PE Premium spending rests with the School, best practice suggests that at least the following documentation is collated for hard copy and online availability:

 

  • Breakdown of PESS Premium spend and impact
  • Updated PE Policy
  • Subject development plan (transparent work in progress)
  • Curriculum map
  • Schemes of work / lesson plans
  • Updated Assessment strategy / policy
  • Gifted & Talented / More Able register
  • Directory of quality-assured community club links
  • INTER Competition results (SGO link)
  • INTRA Competition results

N.B: Given Ofsted's recent report into State Competition, it can be concluded that this is an area of concern that is likely to attract raised attention within future inspection.

  • Olympic & Paralympic values profiling
  • School organising crew / sport school council representatives
  • Active links with Secondary school sport leaders
  • Play leaders plan of delivery / case study
  • Kitemarks / Accreditations

DfE expectation is that the impact of Primary PE Premium funding is felt keenly and evidently across the whole school community therefore online profiling is especially relevant to keep parents / families; Governors ; PTA and community club coaches appropriately informed of key developments.

 

Furthermore, it is an opportunity to celebrate the subject and your hard-working efforts.

BROMLEY PRIMARY SCHOOL SPORTS & CLUBS DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION 

IMPORTANT: CHANGES TO BOROUGH PRIMARY PE CPD PROVISION AS FROM SEPTEMBER 2017

Published: Monday 17th July 2017

 

Please note that the following information has already been emailed to all borough Primary Head Teachers as well as PE Subject leaders, based upon known contact details:

 

=======================================

 

I write to you to confirm planned important changes to Borough Primary PE CPD provision that are scheduled to commence as from this September:

 

  • Bromley Primary School Sports & Clubs Development Association will cease working operations as from the end of August and will be replaced by London and SE Primary PE, Health & Well Being Development Association (similarly managed by a board of trustees; constitution and accounts that will be annually audited)- this change is solely to reflect the expansion required to accommodate outer borough interest within such aspects as access to a resource-rich website; range of cross-curricular PESS Premium CPD historically  provided and assistance sought for effective planning and reporting upon the strategy. A new website will be consequently created with its launch planned for the start of September. Schools will thereafter be invited to buy into full access of the site via a small cost, fundable via the PESS Premium, on an annual membership basis. 

 

  • Borough PE CPD delivery for next year will be focussed solely upon termly subject leader forums for PE (twilight and all day versions) but also PSHE (twilight only). With the latter, it has been brought to my attention that the subject currently lacks borough advisory support to schools and yet there are strong crossovers with learning requirements tied to the PESS Premium e.g. emphasis upon active healthy lifestyles and mental health awareness. I have also been an active member of The PSHE Association, the national body for the subject's leadership / management. I am also laden with HQ resources and activity ideas for all aspects of the subject. Schools will be able to buy in to the PSHE termly subject leader forums via the PESS Premium.

 

Dates and venues regarding the next academic year’s Subject Leader forums are therefore:

 

Physical Education

 

STANDARD Twilight @ £180 per school representative x 3 termly meetings with accompanying resources

 

Venue: St.George’s Bickley CE Primary, Bromley BR1 2RL

  1. Thursday 21st September 2017 (4.15-5.45pm)
  2. Thursday 11th January 2018 (4.15-5.45pm)
  3. Thursday 11th January 2018 (4.15-5.45pm)

 

ADVANCED All-Day @ £360 per school representative x 3 termly meetings with accompanying resources

 

Venue: Hayes Secondary School, BR2 7DB

  1. Thursday 28th September 2017 (9.15am - 3.15pm)
  2. Thursday 18th January 2018 (9.15am – 3.15pm)
  3. Thursday 26th April 2018 (9.15am – 3.15pm)

 

Personal Social Health Education

 

Twilight Only @ £180 per school representative x 3 termly meetings with accompanying resources

 

Venue: Southborough Primary, BR2 8AA

  1. Wednesday 27th September 2017 (4.15 – 5.45pm)
  2. Wednesday 17th January 2018 (4.15 – 5.45pm)
  3. Wednesday 25th April 2018 (4.15 – 5.45pm)

 

Please note that a booking form will be dispatched to all borough primary schools at the start of September.

 

Other Important Information:

 

  • Please would it be possible for your school to email back to me at the earliest possible opportunity both the names and contact details of Subject Leaders for both PE and PSHE so as to ensure smooth and effective direct communication as from September

  • Schools are still welcome to request any additional PE and / or PSHE in-house and / or family cluster staff training or 1: 1 Subject Leader management support incl. Subject MOT @ £280 per day / £140 per half day that can likewise be funded via the PESS Premium

 

  • The Level 5 Primary PE qualification will also continue for a third year with information that will be sent out to all schools within a separate email

 

 

I shall naturally provide all borough primary schools with an update regarding DfE criteria for the next academic year's PESS Premium as soon as I am in receipt of such information.  Given The Government’s previous statements regarding the importance of achieving sustainable impact, schools are advised to primarily focus their attention upon up skilling of teaching staff as opposed to their displacement through application of external coaches that still applies to some regional primary establishments. Continued subject leader management training is likewise strongly recommended for the successful progression of teaching and learning related to both PE and PSHE.

 

If you have any queries or even requests for CPD assistance regarding any aspect of either Physical Education or PSHE, then please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Giles Platt

PRIMARY PE & SPORTS PREMIUM FUNDING: PRIORITIES (2015-TO DATE)

Department of education vision STatement FOR PRIMARY PE & SPORTS PREMIUM

ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport

IS YOUR SCHOOL MEETING THIS YEAR's FIVE KEY INDICATORS?

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding. It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators (of which the first four will form the bedrock of all our CPD provision for this year)

  1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils 
  5. increased participation in competitive sport 

DfE UPDATED STATUTORY PESS PREMIUM GUIDELINES 2015-To Date

Published: 7th September 2015

 

How to use the PE and sport premium

 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

 

This means that you should use the premium to:

 

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

 

For example, you can use your funding to:

 

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

 

You should not use your funding to:

 

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of your core staffing budgets
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum - including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)

'With this new Government funding (Primary PE & Sports Premium), we now have the golden opportunity to finally get it right by way of best support towards improving pupils' active healthy lifestyles'

'It is a shame to see so many schools outsource PE provision to barely qualified sports coaches who deliver the subject unsupervised and unevaluated. It is also as unfortunate as it is common for schools to use beginner coaches, qualified in one sport, to deliver across the entire PE curriculum. A Level 1 or 2–qualified sports coach will probably not have the demonstrable understanding of child development, age-appropriate pedagogy and the National Curriculum knowledge and expertise in order to deliver PE to the required standard.'

PROMOTING THE PREMIUM TO THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY

Guidelines associated with the Primary PE & Sports Premium require both Head Teacher & Subject Leader to ensure that other services related to everyday school life are fully aware of the strategy and that Inspectorate may put this to the test by way of direct questioning. Best practice dictates that the the following groups are kept fully informed of developments and that this can be undertaken by assigning a representative of each to act as a link:

 

  • Governors

             http://www.clerktogovernors.co.uk/primary-school-pe-and-school-sport-new-funding/

 

  • PTA

 

  • School Council through the establishment of Sport Ambassadors

REALITY CHECK: NHS FUNDING CRISIS vs OBESITY COST

 

Issue:

The NHS calls for an extra £8bn by 2020 in order to safeguard its services

 

Reality Check:

The cost of obesity to society was estimated to be almost £16 billion in 2007, which is predicted to rise to £50 billion by 2050 if obesity levels continue to rise at their current levels.

 

Diabetes UK reports that cost of obesity to NHS in 2014 is £8bn

PSHE BILL READING 'FILIBUSTERED' BY CONSERVATIVE MPS

Published: Saturday 21st January 2017

 

Conservative MPs have been accused of filibustering Friday's Personal Social Health Education (Statutory Requirement) Bill, sponsored by Green Party leader, Caroline Lucas MP. With the Bill second on the agenda, Tory MPs debated the Merchant Shipping Bill producing lengthy speeches, leaving Caroline Lucas with less than the five minutes required therefore giving it no chance of progressing.
