Schools can use the funding to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports
  • enter or run more sport competitions
  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

Our focus for 2018-2019 academic year:
* For all children to complete the daily mile everyday.
* To use the trim trail outside to develop the children's fitness, coordination and balance.
* To organise an addtional after school sports club (use pupil voice survey for Sport ideas)
* To fund a specialist coach to work with all year groups throughout the year to develop teacher knowledge and children's skills.
*  To ensure all teachers attend training to improve their teacher knowledge and PE delivery.
* We will aim to achieve the Silver Award in the School Games Mark (last year we acheived the Bronze award).
