Use of PE Funding

 

Our PE Funding this year has been used to:

  • Employ coaches from Peak Active Sports to work alongside teachers and teaching assistants to develop teaching in all areas of PE
  • Employ a PE specialist from New Mills Secondary School to co-ordinate PE events across the New Mills cluster
  • Employ a PE specialist to work specifically with KS1 and Foundation Stage on Gymnastics and Key Skills
  • To purchase essential resources for Forest School
  • To purchase new PE equipment for Active break times
  • To put some funding towards installing a large play tower alongside an Awards for All bid 

Outcomes:

  • We are now teaching an even wider area of the PE curriculum (including archery and teamwork activities)
  • We have included PE activities linked more closely to New Mills Cluster events
  • Our participation in New Mills Cluster events means 100% of our children are involved in competitive and Festival based activities at least once every term
  • We have included even better quality Dance and Gymnastics units during the first part of Spring Term
  • The PE specialist has offered support to our NQT in delivering high quality PE and resources have been purchased to improve delivery of throwing and catching skills for this group of children
  • The large play tower is now in place and used daily to encourage more active and adventurous play
  • A termly PE assessment for all children has been introduced with much progress being seen
  • A £30k 'Primary Spaces' bid has been successful to completely overhaul a playground. It will be much better suited for delivering high quality PE and play - work starts during Summer Term and we will commit some PE funding to resources as part of this fantastic development
  • The school has achieved its highest position in many of the tournaments attended this year as skills continue to improve
