PE and Sports Premium
Physical Education (PE) is led by Mr Alexander.
The PE and Sports Premium allocation of £8,850 has been used towards employing our own specialist PE coach, Mr Turner. Our PE Coach works alongside all members of staff, to raise the quality of teaching across the school and also gain our healthy school award.
In addition, he runs morning fitness sessions for groups of pupils, and holds weekly after-school training sessions for the athletics and football teams, who participate in inter-school competitions throughout the year. As well as this, he leads sporting activities for all key stages during break and lunch times.
We are also members of the Cumberland Sports Partnership who provide staff training, training for children and inter school competitions, amongst much more. (see additional document) We also have access to a PE specialist, who works with some of our ASD and PMLD children, to increase their physical activity.
Our Premium funding has also been allocated to promote and provide specialist coaches and teachers for our after school clubs, increasing participation across the school. This extends to:
- PE team teaching with individual staff
- Sports leaders training for children
- Staff training opportunities for PE with all staff
- Access to additional resources for curriculum development
- Setting up school competitions
- Inclusive sport coaching
- SEND student support
- School sports club coaching
- Talented pupil identification and outreach
