How Ash Grove Academy used the funding for the 2016/2017 academic year

Specialist Sport Teachers to develop inter school competitions and after school clubs

The school has bought in specialist PE coaches through a private provider to teach PE sessions for pupils in yr. 1-5. This is to enhance the skills development that has been started by the teachers from Macclesfield Academy. At the end of each half terms PE curriculum, class intra-sports competitions will continue to be held to promote the Olympic values and provide children with competition within the school setting. In addition children will have inter school competitions through the sports provider with local schools to encourage competition with neighbouring schools. Coaches will promote a rugby and football team for local competitions.

Extend child’s interests and sporting experiences to explore alternative sports

The school completed a pupil voice for sports children would be interested in trying and knowing more about. Children expressed an interest in many alternative sports. Funding will be used to develop this alternative PE curriculum in the following way. A karate coach will be brought in to develop karate and introduce mixed competition with yr. 3 and 4 pupils. Trampolinig will be developed to enhance children’s trampolining skills and this will lead to a competition within their year group.
