As we consider Physical Education an important vehicle to engage our children we strive to provide high quality curriculum input and offer a variety of extra-curricular activities for children throughout the school. Therefore, in addition to the Sports Funding Grant we do commit other monies from our school budget to engage the maximum number of children.
In addition to the spending listed above we have committed funds to enhancing curriculum resources and ensuring that all resources and equipment are checked for safety as per statutory requirements.
Stockport’s School Sports Co-ordinator buyback provides specialist coaching/teaching through working with our feeder Secondary School, Stockport School. We are allocated a link Co-ordinator (Mrs Debbie McKeever) and are able to make use of facilities at the school, as well as coaching and involvement in Sports competitions with other local primary schools throughout the school year. Membership also entitles us to access sports coaches in school time, which we direct to the younger age groups in school; and the Change4Life programme. We are also able to work towards National awards as part of our participation in this initiative. Our sports leader in School has been Mr Kelly but the role will be taken over by Liam Booth from January 2015.
Curriculum Sports Coaches
To provide high quality PE for all children throughout the school we employ a Sports Coach to cover PPA throughout the school. The coach provides one hour per week of physical education for children in Y1-6 and activities for children throughout the EYFS.
Extra Curricular Sports Clubs
2013/2014 we have been able to offer extra-curricular sport to children of all ages through the school. We have “bought in” sports coaches who have offered clubs on a half termly basis. The clubs have been at a cost of £3 per child per one hour after-school session. School has offered the clubs free of charge to all. The cost of £5805 indicates that we were able to offer 1935 pupil sessions in extra-curricular sports clubs last year. Which equates to approximately 11 hours of extra-curricular sport per child. Our aim is to increase this to a minimum of 18 hours per child in the 2014/2015 school year.
