Since September 2013, each school receives extra sports funding through the PE and Sports funding grant. In our school this will amount to £8,900 and we intend to use it in several ways to support the development of Physical Education in our school:
Hiring specialist sports teachers will ensure the high delivery of quality PE lessons across the school.
We will also increase and improve the extra curricular school provision, by putting on more sports related clubs.
At The Canterbury Primary School, we are directing the funding to support the following planned interventions:
- Extra curricular clubs
- Specialist coaching
- Specialist PE teaching
- CPD for all staff (Formal and informal lesson observations)
- Intrahouse and interschool competitions
- Specialised days to develop Literacy and Numeracy skills through sport
