For the last four years schools have been allocated a sum of money to improve the quality of sport in primary schools. The funding is known as the Primary Physical Education and Sport Grant.
The purpose of the grant is to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered at Hill View. At Hill View the decision was taken, by the Governing Body, to employ specialist coaches and teachers to work with the children and teaching staff to build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. PE specialist coaches and teachers will lead professional development, model lessons, team teach and coach staff. In this way, the quality of PE will be developed through the school. improving their skills and in turn developing the quality of teaching throughout the school.In addition the funding will be used to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers.
FIVE KEY INDICATORS
To be successful we expect to see improvements across the following five key indicators:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – it is recommended that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
- Increased participation in competitive sport
