We are hugely fortunate at St. Martin's School to have employed Mr Terry Ellis, a PE specialist who works across a number of local Scarborough Schools. Our School values Sports Education at all levels and, in addition to Mr Ellis, we employ a P.E. A.T.A., Secretary and the Head Teacher, all of whom form the team to ensure educational and competitive sport takes place effectively. Part of our our Sports premium paid for Mr. Ellis' employment, which has had a massively positive impact on our coverage of the PE curriculum, our provision of sporting extra curricula activity and our successes at competition level. We continue to excel at County level and individual pupils are given the opportunity to shine. Mr. Ellis has coached the Staff, evaluated our School's standard and encouraged us to become involved with different types of sporting activity, including tennis, gymnastics and Dance. The grant also provides money for improved resource and training.
Our Sports Premium funding for 2019 - 2020 is £18,310
The positive impact from the employment of a specialist PE teacher can be assessed by reading the action plan and report below. We also improved PE resources in School, for both Key Stage 1 and 2. We have funded new kit for both Boys' football, gymnastics and cross country running. We improved the climbing apparatus in the playground.
By hiring a qualified and specialist sports teachers to work with teachers this will ensure the quality of PE teaching within St Martin's remains high.
Sport is now taught more effectively as existing staff have received high quality training , this up-skilling of staff is sustainable. More pupils have been encouraged to take up sport and there is an increased participation in competitive sport.
