Teacher CPD Programmes
After consultations with the headteachers of several primary schools in Sutton Coldfield we have put together a CPD programme to focus on key aspects of PE and School Sport. By accessing our CPD programme staff will increase their knowledge and confidence of individual activities within PE and also how to teach outstanding PE lessons.
Our CPD programme is run through 3 PE lead networking days over the year. The agenda is set by the group looking at key national changes. (Example: New National Curriculum, Reporting on Sports Premium, Supporting NQT's etc)

School Sports Premium
The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2014. Each eligible school will receive a base of ?8000 and a further ?5 per pupil on roll.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:
Schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the schools overall provision.
One year on, Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year's expenditure of additional funding and its impact. The diagram below shows what Ofsted will be focusing on during inspections:
Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
