How we use the Sports Premium finding here at Lanivet School (spending April 2013 to March 2015)

At Lanivet School we are extremely excited about the Sport Premium funding.   It opens up a wealth of opportunities to us.  We want to ensure that we use the funding effectively.  We aim to:  increase levels of pupil engagement and participation, improve pupils’ well- being, enhance teacher confidence and the quality of teaching and learning and to ensure that all of our pupils make good progress.

Purchase of equipment and resources



Traverse Wall


Children are able to make use of the Traverse Wall at break times and lunchtimes.  This has extended the activities available to the pupils and has introduced a non- competitive sport into the curriculum.

£2500 (including staff training)

Hockey equipment

As a result a new activity has been introduced into our PE lessons and has enabled us to provide an after school club.  Miss Fouracres is a Cornwall hockey player and we have made use of her skills in this area.


10 Ridgeback Scoots +  10 Lazer Nutz helmets

We are introducing Balanceability in to the curriculum for our Reception pupils.  The sessions will be run by Mrs Roberts who is a qualified instructor.

This will promote a lifelong skills at an early age for these pupils


Huff and Puff Equipment

This equipment is available for pupils to access at lunchtimes.  We have noticed a dramatic effect on the number of incidents at lunchtime as pupils are engaged and occupied.








We feel we are introducing the children to lifelong skills that will benefit them not only now but well into their future life.

Total resources purchased  £3849


Introducing new sport into the curriculum



We have been able to introduce new sports into our school; hockey, mountain biking, cycling, Bikeability, Cyclewise, traverse climbing.

We feel that by introducing our pupils to these new sports it not only keeps their interest but also promotes the importance of exercise and wellbeing. 

We hope this will emphasise the importance of exercise to them not only at this very young age but through life.


Dance Club

This has introduced children to a non- competitive sport which also promotes self-awareness of their bodies while exercising.

£2 per pupil

Gymnastics – Callywith Centre

Children attend the Callywith Centre to improve their gymnastic skills and to develop their co-ordination.  We are unable to offer gymnastic in school (we have a qualified gymnastics coach on the staff) as we have no hall due to building work but this is something we intend to implement in the Summer Term 2015.

We intend to purchase additional gymnastics resources from the Sports Premium Funding in the Summer Term 2015.


As a result of children learning new skills in PE lessons we have noticed improved team work and fitness.  Their high engagement has also been noted by the uptake of after school clubs we offer and also children have joined various clubs at the Dragon Centre in Bodmin (outside of school time) as a result.


At Lanivet we take part in numerous inter-school competitions:  Cluster Swimming Gala, Area Swimming Gala, Bodmin College Netball League, Bodmin College Football League,  Multi Skills Festivals, Tag Rugby, Gymnastics, football/netball matches against other local schools, Camel Challenge Cross Country Run,  Badminton Festival.
