Sustainability

Staff have a rigorous training programme, through support from Wyre and Fylde Schools Sports Partnership. 

 

Equipment is chosen carefully to ensure value for money and longevity. 

 

We re-visit the Action Plan each term, monitor the impact of the funding (on pupil participation, attitudes, and staff skills, knowledge and confidence), set yearly targets and strive to ensure that these targets are met. Through assessment, there will be worthwhile and effective early intervention measures for children identified as being below the expected standard in PE and sport.

 

Training is targeted and shared with all staff to ensure quality first teaching of PE

 

Clubs are chosen to reflect children's interests in Sport and are regularly reviewed by the School Council. These are subsidised heavily by the Sports Premium and provided at no cost to PP pupils.
