Use and impact of the government Sports Grant 2015/16

We have continued to make great use of the PE and sports funding to promote sport and fitness in the school for 2015/16.

We have continued to target fundamental skills in reception.

We have increased the amount of sports clubs and activities and continued with the Change 4 life club.

We have had the Community Sports Foundation in to deliver CPD to two Key Stage 2 teachers and enable teachers to feel confident in their delivery of PE. The partnership we have with the CSF has enabled us to access some of their CPD opportunities and as a result have been able to send some teaching Assistants from Key Stage 1 and Key stage 2 on 101 warm up ideas, which they have used to help support in PE and during morning exercise.

  • Multi-Sports for years 2-4
  • Cricket for Key Stage 2

We have increased the number of children that lead games and officiate during level 1 competition and with a successful sports organising crew have been able to provide appropriate competition within school for all.

We have continued to increase our participation in competition in 2013/14 we attended three level 2 competitions in the school games competitions, 2014/15 we increased this to six and 2015/16 we increased this to seven. Due to the continued level of interest and enthusiasm in the school we have fielded more teams in each competition.
