    Here at Bowling Park, we like to ‘Go the Extra Mile’ in every part of school life. We believe that children should get the best possible education and opportunities in all aspects of their learning, including P.E. and outdoor education. This helps to encourage a range of skills, so that children can become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. P.E. and outdoor education is a vital part of this aim, helping children to succeed both in and out of the classroom. Because sports and physical education is so important, the Government now provide specific P.E. funding to develop sports provision in all schools. How is Bowling Park spending the funding April 2014-March 2015? This year, we intend to continue many of the initiatives we started last year as our P.E. funding continues to grow. From April 2014 to March 2015, we received £8,000 (plus an extra £5 per eligible child) to help continue the development of P.E. provision in our school. Here you can find details of how we are spending the money this year (April 2014-March 2015): Strategy/activity Cost Employment of specialist P.E. coaches JB Sports Coaching provide expert P.E. lessons, lunch time clubs and after school clubs at both of our sites. They also provide P.E. lesson planning to help develop teachers’ P.E. skills. £21,356* 1 Additional after school clubs In addition to clubs run by our specialist P.E. coaches, we also run a number of additional clubs to support healthy eating, for example our Change for Life and Cooking club. £29.63 Partnership Work We have a subscription to ‘Accelerate Sports Partnership’ with Tong High School. This allows us to develop sports competitions across schools in our area (including a football league) and develop sportsmanship and teamwork skills.

This is used to develop self-esteem, confidence and determination in the months leading up to SATs. In order to ensure children have the correct footwear, we use a proportion of our P.E. Funding to pay for trainers for all children involved. £641 Total spent £28,860.63 * 1 estimate cost for the full year based on actual costs from April 2014 to July 2014. * 2 estimate based on cost from April 2013 to March 2014. How did Bowling Park spend the funding September 2013-March 2014? From September 2013 to March 2014, we received £6609 to help improve Physical Education at Bowling Park. This money was spent on a variety of activities and initiatives to encourage and develop outdoor and sports skills. We also topped up the P.E. funding with extra money from our budget to make sure our children got the best possible provision.
