This document outlines the use of the government’s £9300 investment in PE for Westcliffe Primary School for the 2015/16 academic year.
During the previous academic year, a significant amount of money was spent on replacing and purchasing new equipment. We found that this ensured that children were more enthusiastic during lessons and took more pride in looking after equipment during PE. This year, as we have not needed to purchase many new pieces of equipment, we have primarily directed our spending to the Gold Package of The Humber Sports Partnership. This has enabled us to provide CPD opportunities for staff, participate in competitions, attend trips with pupils of gifted and talented sporting ability, and work closely with PE specialists.
Planned spending will be categorised under the following headings:
Staffing – additional staff employment to deliver PE/extra-curricular sessions
Equipment – new equipment purchase to assist with driving the curriculum forward
Memberships – memberships of external groups or organisations
Schemes of work – subscription to schemes of work

CPD for staff
This has included training for NQT staff on delivery of quality PE teaching in KS1, training for the PE Coordinator on Leadership of PE, and the British Gymnastics two day course.
Children across Key Stage 2 have already competed in inter-school competitions. We plan to send children from KS1 and KS2 on other competitions in the future as well as rolling out an intra-school competition to encourage all pupils to experience a competition environment.
Allocated time with PE specialists
PE specialist Owen Denovan has worked one to one with the PE Coordinator to create an action plan tailored to the school’s individual needs to ensure that delivery of the PE curriculum is outstanding. Tom Brooks has delivered training to 20 pupils to represent the school as Sports Ambassadors. Future events such as Skip4Life are booked for children later in the year.
Trips for children to attend
4 free places were allocated for children to attend the English Institute of Sport. A further 8 places were purchased by Westcliffe Primary School at £10 per head. This trip included a tour of the facilities alongside an athletics and boxing training session at the institute.
