Impact of Sport Premium Funding
Professional Development for Staff
The professional learning for the whole staff on P.E has improved. There has been significant support for the PE subject leader, including a strategy for team teaching across the school. Teachers’ confidence has increased within P.E and they have a deeper knowledge of how to challenge and engage children within P.E.
Teachers are now more confident and competent in delivering high quality PE to all children. Staff are now confident to use a range of teaching and learning styles in PE to match lesson content. Children are now experiencing a broader and engaging curriculum. Our PE curriculum is wide and varied, including Multiskills/ football/ orienteering/ rugby/ gymnastics, dance, netball, and cricket to ensure children are confident to try new sports.
We have purchased a new scheme of work, with lesson plans in a wide range of sports allowing children to develop the required skills across the curriculum. There are assessment opportunities in each lesson, with concise objectives, allowing staff to assess which children are below, in line, or exceeding age related expectations. Across Key Stage One and Two 81% of children are either in line or achieving age related expectations.
Extra Curricular Activity
The range of extra curricular activities has increased and included those requested by children e.g. wrestling, dodgeball and fencing. We offer alternative and varied individual and team sports to cater for all our children. At Bishop Bridgeman in addition to a range of after school clubs, we offer lunchtime clubs, which target those children who are achieving below age related expectations. These are tailored to individual children working on their skills and fitness that they need to develop. Lunchtime clubs are planned to meet children’s skills and interests as well as teaching them new games and sports they can play.
Many children have represented Bishop Bridgeman in Essa Academy sports competitions and other local competitions. We will introduce opportunities for inter form competitions.
