Strategies for using the PE and Sports Premium Funding

The Devonshire School Sports Team has worked alongside Senior Management to devise a plan of how to utilise the PE and Sports Funding. Opportunities for children to experience a wide range of PE and Sports provision has been structured into weekly PE lessons. As well as providing one-off sports related activities that children would not usually have the opportunity to access. Much of the provision was focused on providing speciality PE coaches to work with pupils and staff. Through this structured support it has encouraged children to participate in after school clubs and competitions. Further opportunities were identified by bringing in a coach to lead sports at lunchtimes with KS1 and 2 children.

Devonshire Primary Academy believes they have achieved value for money through structured intervention and employing highly qualified specialist coaches. The quality of teaching and learning as  contributed by expanding teachers competence and confidence in the delivery of PE and Soll Sport as well as increasing staff’s subject knowledge. Through team teaching in PE children’s enjoyment in PE as risen, this has been seen in the numbers of children participating in school based sports and other PE related clubs. Our level of success in competitions is beginning to improve significantly. The expansion to the extra-curricular provision is continuing to grow.
