  • Policy documentation templates

...and so much more.

Finally, we are always willing to listen to and attend to your requests for additional features. If we haven't got it and you need it, then we'll fervently attend to bringing it to you.

It is as a result of the running costs involved to continually update this website, that we need to impose a charge per school of £75 per academic year that can be covered as a legitimate Primary PE & Sports Premium funding expense.

'It is a shame to see so many schools outsource PE provision to barely qualified sports coaches who deliver the subject unsupervised and unevaluated. It is also as unfortunate as it is common for schools to use beginner coaches, qualified in one sport, to deliver across the entire PE curriculum. A Level 1 or 2–qualified sports coach will probably not have the demonstrable understanding of child development, age-appropriate pedagogy and the National Curriculum knowledge and expertise in order to deliver PE to the required standard.'
