P.E. & Sport Premium: 2016 / 2017
Allocation to Southcoates: £9,315 per year
Use of this funding: Southcoates uses this funding in order to employ a P.E. specialist. She works the equivalent of one day per fortnight in the school. Her role entails supporting staff in the development of high quality plans that will help deliver high quality lessons. She works alongside staff to develop their skills and ensure that provision is good. She does not take the lesson for the teacher, rather she works with them.
She is also looking at provision from a resource point of view; auditing equipment and ordering new and replacement equipment as necessary.
Another aspect to the work she is doing has been to look at competition. We regularly hold ‘in-house’ competitions – skipping, standing jump, relays, etc. This is being developed further to include competitions with other schools – both within the group of schools she works with and other schools in the city in general.
Impact: The staff who have worked with the specialist have improved their skills in planning and delivery of PE. The children fully engage with the competitions and the clubs/activities organised. Full further impact information please see the impact report for 2015/16.
The P.E. specialist runs lunchtime activities to promote an active lifestyle and also runs an after-school club.
