The Impact of Sport Premium Funding
Having the introduction of a part time HLTA for PE has allowed the school to really broaden the spectrum in this subject. This has not only benefited the children’s learning experiences at Aspin Park, but also the teachers too. Given the opportunity to observe an enthusiastic PE teacher allows them to develop their knowledge further in PE (CPD).
Furthermore, there has been a greater opportunity for more children to participate in a real variety of sports and activities within inter-school competitions against other schools in the area. This is shown on the competition entries list given by Harrogate School Sports Partnership, where the total entries in year 2013-2014 were 18 for Aspin Park. In comparison to this year where there was already 19 by the start of March, including our first ever entry to the Key Steps Gymnastics Competition.
There has also been a stronger introduction to competitive sport for KS1. A total of 16 children have already been to a competition in various sports, with more upcoming competitions on the agenda. Over 100 different children across the school have competed in some way at an inter-school competition so far, showing a real drive to get children participating competitively.
