Sports Partnership

Our Lady of Ransom Catholic Primary School is using part of the newly acquired Sport Premium funding to subscribe to support from the Castle Point and Rochford School Sports Partnership based at The Deanes School. 

This includes allowing our staff and students to benefit from additional festivals and sports competitions, selected students will participate in sports leadership training and access to a Top Up Swimming programme for those targeted.

Our staff benefit from a range of CPD and training opportunities, including access to over 20 PE and sports courses and staff inset opportunities. This is especially important to ensure the funding has a lasting impact on up-skilling our teachers in our schools.

We also benefit from input of an Area Co-ordinator who works closely with our staff to address our development needs in PE and School Sport and provide further sports opportunities for students in our locality.

In addition to our investment into the generic support packages provided through the School Sports Partnership, we have also purchased a ‘Gold’ package which is a bespoke plan tailored to suit the needs of our school.

This includes the involvement of the School Sport Partnership specialist coaching team to enhance the breadth and range of activities being covered within our PE curriculum.  Simultaneously our teaching staff are benefiting from on-going CPD and access to a wealth of resources and learning tools.

In addition, we have made a commitment through the Sport Premium funding to ensure our lunch breaks provide high quality opportunities for children to access varied and structured physical activity.  A member of the School Sport Partnership is providing guidance to our students on four lunchtimes each week.
