  • Hire specialist quality sports coaches to deliver sessions in Nursery and Foundation stage.
  • Specialist qualified sports coaches and PE co-ordinator to provide guidance, support and feedback to all teachers through CPD.
  • Continue to provide professional development opportunities for all staff through regular training.
  • Buy new resources to support initiatives which encourage children to be more active throughout the school day.
