Our connection with The Tonbridge Sports Partnership (TWSSP) has enabled Cage Green to tackle these issues. We are receiving support from TWSSP one day a week for 6 terms to give staff and pupils an enhanced programme of activities that will support teaching and learning in PE; this support has initially gone to KS2 as we have had, over the past two years support from Premier Sports and this has impacted and improved teaching and learning standards in KS1. TWSSP have also supported our application for the Sainsbury’s School Games Mark – for which the School has now been awarded silver. We have also implemented ‘Bike Ability’, a programme to teach children about cycling safely on the roads. The School has invested in new sports equipment to support the PE programme and a new set of Netball and football kits.

School Sport Funding provision and how much we predict to spend on each for 2014-15:


Employing qualified coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE


Employing a specialist teacher to lead Football and Gymnastics after school sports clubs


Providing cover staff to release teachers for professional development in PE and sport


Buying into the Tonbridge and West Kent School Sports Partnership


Employing expert advice from the Brook Alliance (Hayesbrook Academy) to evaluate the school’s current strengths and areas of development in PE and sport, and implement plans for improvement


Providing training and payment for Teaching Assistants to introduce playground games at breaks and lunchtimes


Forging links with PE teachers at Hayesbrook Academy and Hugh Christie Technology College to help primary staff improve their PE and sports provision


Establishing inter-house sports competitions for pupils of all ages


Introducing sports leaders in Key Stage 2


At the end of the academic year the school will report on the impact of the funding in relation to the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
