Guidance for Governors
There has never been a more important time for PE in primary schools.
Recent research finds that half of all seven-year olds do not get enough exercise, only 38 per cent of girls at that age take part in the recommended hour of moderate or vigorous exercise a day and one in three young people leave primary school overweight. These statistics show how important high-quality PE and sport is in tackling the growing levels of inactivity amongst primary age children in the UK.
Rik Grover Lead Officer for the Primary Sports Premium at Wiltshire and Swindon Sport (WASP) is pleased to be offering schools across Wiltshire and Swindon a short PowerPoint presentation offering guidance and support on the Primary Sports Premium, and the roles and responsibilities of the governing board.
The presentation is approximately 30 minutes in duration, and in addition to covering the relevant details for the governing board, it also gives an overview of the local and national picture regarding the Primary Sports Premium Grant. A guidance booklet also accompanies the Governors presentation.
Rik Grover has produced a Governors Guide publication offering guidance and support on the primary sports premium.
The publication supports one of two presentation he offers. The first one is designed for Head teachers, PLT's and School staff, with the second one intended for School Governors.
This Guide Shows School's how to maximise the impact of the primary Physical Education and Sport funding and ensure compliance with Ofsted accountability measures, governing bodies will be supporting and challenging Head teachers and senior leadership teams about the school’s vision, provision and impact of PE, sport and physical activity.
If you would like to arrange for the presentation to be delivered in your school, or if you would like a copy of the Governors Guide sent to you in the post, please contact Rik on: 01225 781500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
