This funding is aimed at improving the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport. We aim to inspire all pupils to feel confident performing and competing in a range of physical activities, in order that they may pursue a healthy and active lifestyle.

We have carefully planned the use of this funding to ensure the effective, sustainable delivery of high quality PE and sports provision within our curriculum and through a variety of out of school clubs.

It is our aim to:

  • further improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision across the school
  • increase pupil participation in PE and sport and introduce children to a wide variety of sports e.g. fencing, basketball, handball, athletics, swimming
  • encourage all pupils to enjoy sport, develop healthy lifestyles and reach their true potential
  • Inspire pupils to participate in competitive sport
  • to work in partnership with Oldham Sports Development, other schools, and the Saddleworth and Lees Collaborative
  • further increase staff confidence to deliver high quality PE lessons through professional development

In 2017-18 we intend to spend this funding on:

  • a qualified and highly skilled sports coach to work alongside school staff to further increase subject knowledge and confidence in delivering a wide range of games/sports lessons
  • a qualified and highly skilled dance coach to work with school staff and all classes across the school
  • swimming lessons for all children in Key Stage 2
  • staff training e.g. Poolside Safety Certificate, gymnastics training
  • upskilling staff to further raise confidence and competence in the teaching of PE and sport
  • Purchase of resources and equipment
  • Sport & Health Week activities
