Effect of Sports Premium on participation and attainment

Two members of staff (1 teacher and 1 Higher Level Teaching Assistant – H.L.T.A.) are currently undertaking the Level 3 Sports Diploma which will be completed by September 2018.
This will allow a high quality of Sports provision to be delivered across all key stages in Dee Banks School and allow quantifiable assessments to be made year on year.

We have also secured a Manchester City coach who attends 1 day per week as part of the City in the Community programme; this qualified coach provides PE to specific classes across the school.

Having a dedicated P.E. Team for the first time this academic year will allow us to ensure maximum participation and should result in increased attainment across all key stages; this will be reviewed at the end of the school year.


*The swimming courses above should allow us to address and attain the year 6 targets as specified in the guidance:

    • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
    • use a range of strokes effectively
    • perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations



On-going training as detailed above should allow us to continue to develop our curriculum ensuring coverage, attainment and sustainability for the future of P.E. at Dee Banks.
