5 Steps to maximise your PE & sport premium impact.
For the last few years, and even more so since the new PE & school sport funding guidance issued in October, we have worked with subject leaders to help maximise the impact of their premium.
We do this individually with our partner schools, but feel the need is now so great, that we should share the information with a wider audience.
Over the next few weeks, we will be podcasting and blogging about our process to ensure schools get the maximum return from investment of their funding.
For info, you can subscribe to our podcasts on ITunes – just search for TLG-PE and you will find us!
Fundamentally, the process at the start of each academic year should be the same and should be the foundation of how you set your goals (and spending) for PE.
It can be broken down in to 5 simple steps:
STEP 1: Complete a thorough audit of where your PE, School Sport and Physical Activity provision currently stands.
STEP 2: Ascertain where you want to be as a school at the end of the 2018/19 Academic Year.
STEP 3: Decide what you need to invest in to ensure you meet your targets
STEP 4: Decide how you are going to track progress to ensure you are on track to meet your targets.
STEP 5: Track your impact each half term and amend where necessary.
We’ll be looking at each area in detail over the coming weeks. Be prepared to change the way you think, especially when starting the process at Step 1. This is often the most difficult area for subject leaders and can sometimes feel that by being honest about where your provision currently stands, you are highlighting your own errors and mistakes. This is NOT the case. You need to have a true, accurate and validated understanding of where your provision currently is before you can effectively move forward.
Of course, an external pair of eyes can help that process and as always, we are available to assist where needed.
Keep checking out the coming blogs for more detail about each of the 5 steps you need to take to ensure you maximise your funding this year.
