The UK Government states that primary schools have 5 key indicators that schools should see improvement across while using their sport funding:
1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children ages 5 – 18 engage in 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
2. The profile of PE & sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
5. Increased participation in competitive sport.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) (Key indicators: 1,3 and 5).
Our coaches are experienced in delivering a wide range of sports, utilising many different coaching skills and techniques.
In offering CPD we provide the opportunity for teachers to shadow and learn from our coaches. This will increase the confidence, knowledge, and skills of the staff in teaching PE and sport in the future.
Further, we can support staff in raising the standards, and engagement levels, of children to encourage them into competitive school sport.
After School Clubs (Key indicators: 1, 2 and 4)
Our After School Clubs are a useful tool for schools looking to increase the engagement, and participation levels, of children in regular physical activity.
Further, we can work with schools to provide a broad range of sports and increase the interests levels of children. Moreover, our coaches can support children into competitive sport, and can prepare children for a competitive environment (tournaments etc).
