Impact:

The Sport Premium Funding has impacted on our school in the following ways:

Staff at school, have developed skills and confidence to teach and develop a range of PE activities including; dance, gymnastics, games, pupils leadership, SAQ (skills, agility, quickness)athletics and outdoor and adventurous activities.

Teachers understand and are knowledgeable about how to plan for and assess PE using core tasks and how to adapt the plans to suit all learners. They understand that PE needs to be challenging for all participants and differentiated accordingly.

Children are benefiting from the funding by having well-informed teachers who can teach and adapt units according to the needs of the children so that skills can be learned, developed and applied to other physical activities.

Teachers understand how the progressions of skills are taught in a range of subjects and why it is important that children have a secure knowledge of fundamentals.

Children access a range of PE activities in school hours and after school which enables them to be competitive with one another and competitive with themselves. Physical activities in and out of school hours are helping children to continue to live a healthy and active lifestyle.

Competition allows for children to transfer natural energy to keep them active and healthy as they grow and helps them channel their energy into something productive.

Competitive sports in school and through entering intra school competitions, help children learn important life lessons about teamwork and fair play.

Playing sports assists children to understand how competition works in a friendly environment and that if you try your best; you have a better chance to succeed.

All members of the school community understand the importance of having a healthy and active lifestyle.

Gifted and talented pupils have the opportunity to forge links with community clubs and associations.
