Over the next two years all primary schools in England will receive a grant to improve the teaching and availability of PE for 5 – 11 year olds. At the Weatheralls we will be using this money to train teachers to improve their knowledge and skills in teaching PE; increasing our participation in competitions, both in school and in the local area; and purchasing PE equipment to better resource our lessons.
So far this year, a curriculum coach has worked in KS1 to improve the teaching of gymnastics. Year 3 teachers have recently been on a gymnastics course and are excited about teaching their new skills to their classes. This half term a curriculum coach will be working in KS2 to support the teaching of dance. Year 6 will be working with a licensed football coach too. These professional development opportunities will continue for the next two years.
