Evaluation of Sports Premium 2016-17

Impact of funding on pupils

The use of specialist coaches and teachers enabled pupils to make greater progress in PE, due to the high quality teaching offered by the specialists. Pupils are much more active during lessons and with a more skills focussed style of teaching the improvement is evident. This increased pupils’ confidence and enthusiasm for gymnastics, athletics and various ball games which was evident from high attendance figures at clubs held during lunchtime and after school and success at competitions. Some pupils were encouraged to join local sports clubs further their talents, skills and enthusiasm.

 

Impact of funding on staff

Staff demonstrated an increasing confidence when teaching athletics, gymnastics and ball games; they observed high quality lessons, planned and worked alongside skilled staff and then taught subsequent schemes of work using their newly acquired knowledge and skills. Having been exposed to a broad range of ideas and activities through the specialists, staff now plan and teach extended schemes of work which allow pupils to progress more rapidly.

 

Attainment

Working alongside specialist staff has enabled class teachers to identify those pupils who are experiencing difficulties in PE and provide appropriate differentiation to allow pupils to overcome challenges. It has also allowed an increased identification of G&T pupils; these pupils have then been targeted for coaching with the specialists and school staff to further develop their skills.
