At Gallions the Sports Premium spend is used toward employing our own specialist sports coach from West Ham United Foundation. The coach supports delivery of PE sessions, works with groups of pupils at lunchtimes and mentors target groups across other areas of the curriculum (for example, reading and residential educational visits).
Outcomes are much improved for the children through the appointment of this subject specialist, particularly evident in attitudes to learning (including building reliance and working co-operatively with others).
In 2014/2015 academic year we received £ 10,245 in Sports Premium funding.
It is anticipated that in 2015/2016 we will receive a similar level of funding and we plan to continue with the current provision.
