We received £9,431 in Sports Premium from the Government.  We used this to contribute to the Sports Partnership (£3,491) and to fund initiatives, staff training and resources in our school. This money was aimed at improving the provision of P.E. throughout the school and the physical health and wellbeing of our children.


The following is an impact report detailing targets, actions and impact throughout 2013/14 school year.



  • To hire specialist PE teachers or qualified Sports Coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE

Internal sports coach appointed 24hrs per week.  Team teaching in key stage 2, covering standards PE and curriculum enrichment.  The sports coach also coordinates and delivers a package of after school activities.


Team teaching has resulted in a 2 way learning environment whereby sports coaches have developed a broader knowledge of the wider curriculum through sport i.e. numeracy and literacy (turning in gymnastics demonstrated links to angles and direction in maths)  It has also up skilled key stage 2 class teachers, who  have gained a broader knowledge of PE requirements including delivery, techniques, and skills, this has resulted in a growing confidence for staff delivery and a marked improvement in children’s abilities in PE.  Individually, children are showing confidence when performing in front of the class, using more refined dexterity skills.  They are also able to talk about their own and others performance, discussing positives and improvements through peer observation.  Children are assessed according to their own ability, looking for ways to progress further.
