Husthwaite's Sports Development and Sport Premium Funding
The government has given all school additional funding to promote PE in schools. We are using the funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision at Husthwaite Primary School.
Funds have been ‘pooled’ within the local cluster of primary schools to employ specialist PE coaches and PE teachers who will work in our school to:
- Provide high quality PE lessons whilst also working alongside teachers in their lessons to increase their subject knowledge and PE skills.
- Provide a range of extra-curricular sports clubs run by existing members of staff and specialist coaches. (running, netball, football, multi-skills)
- Provide the opportunity for sports activities outside of the classroom in the form of ‘holiday’ sports clubs.
- Coordinate and run cluster sporting competitions and events throughout the academic year. (All cluster sports events cover a range of activities including cross country, tag rugby and multi-skills.)
"The school makes good use of the additional Primary School Sport funding provided to raise standards in physical education and pupils’ physical well-being. Additional resources have been purchased and a new sports coach is helping to teach physical education lessons and support out-of-school activities. Physical education lessons are well planned and promote pupils’ skills effectively. Pupils enjoy opportunities to represent the school in team games and attending the after-school clubs."
