Wanborough Primary received £8865.00 in 2014/15
for supporting the school in improving the provision and outcomes for children in Physical Education and Sport.
The school used this money to appoint a specialist PE teacher who taught PE for a 1.5 days and took after school clubs.
The impact was; all children received Physical Education lessons of a good standard, improved children's attainment and progress in PE, the quantity of active engagement time increased, staff gained in confidence, knowledge and pedagogy through team teaching with PE specialists and using SSSP resources. Our enhanced extra-curricular programme allowed for more children to attend the gymnastics and football clubs that been added through the partnership.
Wanborough Primary School was allocated £9025.00. During this academic year we used the funding to allow us to use a current member of the teaching staff who has gained a PE qualification to teach, plan and assess across the majority of year groups. Team teaching was a continued focus, however the input over the last two years from the specialists / funding has given greater confidence and knowledge to the teaching staff, some of who will take their own classes for PE.
Moving into 2016/17
we have been allocated £9040. Until the new financial year this money will continue to fund our provision as in the 2015/16 academic year. From April 2017 the remaining £3773 will be allocated to improve teacher's knowledge through specific CPD in all areas of the PE curriculum. Funding will be used to up skill staff further and develop even extra-curricular opportunities. We have allocated £500 for competitive opportunities in and out of school and £1000 to improve resources across the curriculum.
We are committed to improving the PE and Sporting provision at Wanborough Primary School and believe that the model we are working too will put us in good stead as and when the funding ceases. Please refer to our PE at Wanborough Section
on the school website to read about the impact of the funding and other developments within PE.
