Impact of spending last year (2015-2016)

The impact in each of the 4 areas of development is as follows:

Area 1: To improve teaching and learning in PE and sport, including staff training to increase subject knowledge and confidence in PE

  • The impact of having a specialist teacher for PE throughout the school has continued to raise achievement in the standard of pupils’ performance, particularly dance, gymnastics and athletics, areas which were picked out as under-developed in PE. Attainment levels of children have continued to rise on in every year group
  • There is good evidence from lesson observation of better skills progression and higher standard of pupils’ performance especially across KS2 in dance and gymnastics
  • Where staff training has occurred through observation, sharing good practice and CPD training, teachers and teaching assistants all report greater confidence and increased subject knowledge

Area 2: Increase participation in sports competition, both in school (Level 1) and inter-school

(Level 2), including establishment of house system

  • A house system has been successfully established with separate cups awarded for inter-house competitions at KS2
