Impact of the funding

  • The profile of P.E. has increased meaning it has increased status within the school.
  • Teacher training and the introduction of new schemes of work has increased the confidence and skills of class teachers in delivering high quality PE lessons along with support from our SSCo
  • The curriculum has been enriched with opportunities for pupils to participate in sporting events and new opportunities such as Archery, climbing, balance biking, OAA.
  • The range, variety, quality and expertise of after-school sporting provision has been maintained throughout this academic year. Multi-sports, gym, street dance.
  • Opportunities for less confident individuals to participate in sporting activities are organised through our school cluster. Bench ball, New age kurling, boccia, sports hall athletics.
  • Through the development of intra and inter school sports competitions, the vast majority of pupils are able to experience competitive sport, playing as part of a team and feel great about achieving success.
  • More children are participating in out of school activities, improving social interaction and promoting a healthier lifestyle.

The school continues to invest in the School Sports Network as a means of accessing a range of staff training opportunities whilst also benefiting from an extensive range of sporting events and inter school competition to enhance existing provision. This is seen as an important aspect of sustaining the effects of PE funding in subsequent years.
