Sports Premium Spending 2015/16

Funding for 2015/16 £8,595          

Carry forward from 2014/15 £8,464



Recognised area of need / development




We recognised the need for a club that encouraged fitness but was not an invasion game activity.


After school dance club opened for all KS2 pupils


Attended by children who have not previously attended any clubs in school.  We have noticed improvement in           co-ordination and confidence during school performances.

Improvement in attendance as we were able to part fund it with Sports Premium funding


Due to our limited outdoor area we recognised the need for children to be enjoying outside activities that they could pursue at home – i.e. cycling.


We purchased 15 Balance Bikes and employed the services of Emma Roberts – It’s All About the Bike to work with both  class and teacher over two terms (two different year groups)

They developed a sense of accomplishment quickly and they can confidently ride pedal bikes at a much younger age.


To take dance outside of the classroom and school environment.


We joined with Dance Republic at Pencarrow House.  Other local schools attended and parents were invited to watch out performance.  A dance specialist worked with the children prior to the production.

Children were motivated by beautiful surroundings and the dance was inspired by nature.

Children met and watched the performances from other schools.


We recognised that children needed more structure in their playtime activities and we also wanted to make use of our hall space during playtimes. Children needed to organise and run the tournaments.


Purchased collapsible goal posts for both indoor and outdoor use.

The Huff and Puff monitors ensured goal posts were taken out onto the Village Green and used during lunchtimes.

At break-times they proved hugely popular for a four a side football league which was organised by the children.


We recognised the need to offer different invasion games both in lessons and as after school clubs.


We purchased Tags and rugby balls.  We introduced Tag Rugby both in class and as an after school club.  The club was led by a Teaching Assistant who specialised in sport.

As a result we were able to enter Tag Rubgy Tournaments organised by Bodmin College. 

Many of our pupils have continued with Tag Rugby when transferring to Bodmin College at the end of Year 6.



We have a Teaching Assistant who is a qualified gymnastics teacher and she highlighted equipment which would help to improve her teaching of gymnastics.



We purchased air rebound mats a wedge.


We are able to offer a wider variety of gymnastic activities. Gymnastics coaching is offered to children who are not swimming because of space constraints at the swimming pool.


We recognise the importance of swimming in Cornwall and therefore subsidise swimming to enable every child to access this.


All children at Lanivet swim for either one or two terms at the Dragon Leisure Centre.

All children can swim at least 25m by the end of KS2.


As a result of our swimming sessions we have recognised that some children need 1-1 tuition to make progress.

Pay for training for a TA who will then take 1-1 lessons after school swimming sessions.

It has made a huge improvement in confidence for eight identified pupils.


School dinner staff had concerns about the quality of packed lunches and in discussion, teachers recognised that children are not always aware of healthy foods and their importance.

Cookery Club offered as an after school club.

Children learn how to prepare fresh food and not rely on ready meals.

£50 per term

To be aware of surroundings and pursue hobbies as a family outside school.

School Camp, Surfing Day, Canoeing activities, Clip and Climb

Children have joined outside clubs as a result of these activities.  They have also make parents aware of how much they enjoy adventurous activities.
