Impact of funding

Gillespie have benefited greatly from the funding and their sporting success has shown this. As the sports leader I have used the money to upskill our teachers and build their confidence in delivering different sports. This has been done by bringing in expert coaches to teach alongside the class teacher providing them with ideas, confidence and skills. I have also been more active in the teaching of PE throughout the school and have taught all of KS2 for on a weekly basis for the Summer term. I have also run both netball and cricket afterschool clubs.

Football

In football the boys won reached the semi finals of the Arsenal Premier league competition but were beaten by Ashmount who went on to win the tournament.

Cricket

Gillespie won the British Land Cricket Competition in Islington so went on the represent Islington at the Regional Finals where we made it through to the Grand Finals. 140 schools took part in the tournament and only 8 made it through to the finals day at Lord so it was an amazing achievement for a one form entry school.

Inclusion League Winners.

Gillespie have played in the British Land inclusion league for the past 3 years and have built on their performance each year. This year we won the tournament.

Gymnastics

We had the excellent Rochelle in to teach gymnastics to all of KS1 and KS2 and the progress that each child made in her sessions was amazing. Year 5 used their skills in their class assembly and it was clear how much they had benefitted from her. The year 5 teacher also benefitted from her coaching and was able to mirror her lessons each week.

In the year 3/4 gymnastics competition we came 2nd overall, again a huge achievement for a school that had never focused on gymnastics before.

The government provides schools with additional funding each year to improve the quality of PE education and provision for pupils at the school, to increase the opportunities for competitive sport and to increase participation rates in a range of activities. These activities include swimming, games, dance, gymnastics and other alternative sports or activities which promote good health and encourage exercise. The table below indicates how we have spent this additional funding so far this year. Below you can read an evaluation of the impact of our spending so far this year.

This has been done by bringing in expert coaches to teach alongside the class teacher providing them with ideas, confidence and skills. I have also been more active in the teaching of PE throughout the school and have taught all of KS2 for half a term. I have also run both netball and cricket afterschool clubs.

Football

In football the boys won the Islington District Primary competition which meant they represented Islington in both the Davies Cup and at the London Youth Games.

The mixed football team also won the Premier League’s School competition and will go on to represent Arsenal at Everton’s ground Goodison Park in May 2016.

Cricket

Gillespie won the British Land Cricket Competition in Islington so went on the represent Islington at the Regional Finals which is a tremendous achievement for a school that was only recently introduced to cricket. This was down to the Sports Leader and a cricketing parent running afterschool training for the team from October until February.

Athletics

Years 3&4 were trained by the Sports Leader for 2 months leading up to the Sports Hall Athletics competition. On the day the team came 3rd out of 20 schools which was a significant improvement from last year’s 7th place.
