P.E and Sport Premium
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding for all maintained and state-funded schools. The aim of this funding is to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
The vast majority of this fund has paid for the PE specialist teacher to work alongside teachers and Teaching Assistants to develop their skills in teaching PE. In addition, the school purchases a package of entitlement to additional training for staff and competition entries via the School Sport Partnership; wider opportunities to more diverse experiences such as an Event Day which included boccia and archery or additional swimming.
Over time PPES has helped with team building, sensory circuits, lunchtime play leaders, circuit training, sports days, fund raising events and plotting 'the mile'. Recent inclusion has been to use PE/Orienteering to link with key areas of the curriculum.
