Wanborough Primary received £8865.00 in 2014/15 for supporting the school in improving the provision and outcomes for children in Physical Education and Sport.
The school used this money to appoint a specialist PE teacher who taught PE for a 1.5 days and took after school clubs.
The impact was; all children received Physical Education lessons of a good standard, improved children's attainment and progress in PE, the quantity of active engagement time increased, staff gained in confidence, knowledge and pedagogy through team teaching with PE specialists and using SSSP resources. Our enhanced extra-curricular programme allowed for more children to attend the gymnastics and football clubs that been added through the partnership.
For 2015/16 Wanborough Primary School was allocated £9025.00. During this academic year we used the funding to allow us to use a current member of the teaching staff who has gained a PE qualification to teach, plan and assess across the majority of year groups. Team teaching was a continued focus, however the input over the last two years from the specialists / funding has given greater confidence and knowledge to the teaching staff, some of who will take their own classes for PE.
2016/17 funding allocated £9040.00 for the school. From April to August 2016 the money continued our provision as in the 2015/16 academic year. Starting in September 2016 the remaining allocation was used to improve teacher's knowledge through specific CPD in all areas of the PE curriculum. Class teachers were teaching PE with the use of the qualified teacher more in a monitoring and supportive role across the curriculum. Funding was also used to up skill staff further and develop extra-curricular opportunities. Resources across the curriculum were also improved.
Moving into 2017/18 the school will be receiving £9,025.00. The funding has been partly used (£6,000.00) to utilize the skills of the specialist teachers on the staff - the PE lead (Level 5 PE Sports Specialist Qualified) and Headteacher (B'Ed Hons. Secondary Physical Education Qualified). PE will therefore be taught largely by two experienced and outstanding practitioners ensuring the quality of teaching and learning in PE is high. The remaining £3,025.00 is to be used for staff training, resources and competitive sport opportunities.
We are committed to improving the PE and Sporting provision at Wanborough Primary School and believe that the model we are working too will put us in good stead as and when the funding ceases. Please refer to our PE at Wanborough Section
