The overspend of the grant was to ensure that the children could have an additional year of swimming above and beyond the statutory allocation to consolidate their skills.
The PE scheme has made a significant difference to the quality of PE games. The structure of it ensures full coverage of the aims of the New National Curriculum. It ensures that skills are embedded. The PE training which accompanied the purchase gave staff information about biodynamics as well as a very clear and practical understanding of how to implement the scheme. The assessment scheme has provided a comprehensive regime which has also enhanced planning.
We are able to afford additional lunch time supervision so that staff can engage the children in physical activities.
After a skills audit we decided to pay for a professional football coach for our children as an after school club as this was something we did not feel confident to deliver well. Staff have spent time observing the coach to increase their skills base.
