PE and Sports Funding Grant (Primary) 2020-2021
This year we received £16900 which we have continued to invest in updating the PE and sports equipment in school. In addition to the Student Teacher who was appointed to deliver PE we have also appointed a fully qualified and experienced PE teacher to ensure the quality of PE taught within our school continues to rapidly improve. The teaching team in the PE department between them hold a variety of coaching badges and support the class teachers in their delivery of the PE curriculum.
The increased focus on PE throughout the primary department continues to have a positive impact as shown with the end of year results of 97.4% of pupils making above expected progress and 2% of pupils making expected progress. The school target for progress in PE was achieved and exceeded in the academic year 2019-2020, with progress monitored by the PE team, the senior leadership team and moderated by colleagues in the MAT.
The school has invested a significant amount of time into staff training in the previous academic year and this year we will continue to train our teachers and TAs in each new PE module we implement.
This year we have devised and implemented the Know and Remember Curriculum, a skills-based curriculum that teaches the pupils the key skills they need to access a multitude of physical games while ensuring pupils develop their core gross-motor skills.
