PE and Sports Funding Grant (Primary) 2019-2020
This year we received £16900 which we have continued to invest in updating the PE and sports equipment in school. In addition to this we have appointed a full time teaching assistant (TA4) to support teachers to ensure the quality of PE taught within our school rapidly improves. The TA we have appointed holds a variety of coaching badges, is studying for the QTLS teaching qualification and is supporting the teachers in their delivery of the PE curriculum.
The increased focus on PE throughout the primary department is already having an positive impact and with baseline data we will be able to show improved progress in PE by the end of the academic year. The school target for progress in PE is for 80% of pupils to be making Outstanding progress with none making less than Good progress by the ends of the school year. This progress will be monitored by the PE team and moderated externally.
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. In addition to this we are developing our whole school curriculum to ensure we are delivering a deep and rich, broad and balanced curriculum with a focus on knowing more and remembering more.
