  • Overview of PE grant

    The additional government funding for PE is being used to improve PE provision. The core rationale for spending is that the improved provision must be sustainable.

    We aim to:

    develop teacher skills in teaching PE.

    Increase resources/equipment.

    provide a flat playing pitch close enough to the school for regular use.

    provide children with increased opportunities to try sports that are easily accessible outside of school.

    help children to succeed in developing personal bests and provide opportunities to take part in competitive sports.

    Money has currently been spent on:

    Developing teaching skills in football and tag rugby.

    Providing an opportunity for the children to experience Tri-golf (including a session on the golf drive) whilst also developing teachers ability to teach golf.

    New equipment: badminton/volley ball nets, badminton rackets and shuttlecocks, rugby balls, wobble boards (for playtime).

    We are currently negotiating for the lease of a 1/2 acre playing field from the MOD, a large proportion of our funding will go towards the cost of the lease and preparing the playing field. This will give the school, for the first time ever, a flat playing field. close to the school allowing for a wider range of sports and athletics to be more effectively played. Very exciting for us all!

    Measuring success:

    A survey of staff and children before any money was spent will help us to measure the impact of our PE spend.
