    How will we meet our aims?


    Specialists coaches will be brought in for helping guide teachers in teaching a fundamental skills based curriculum in KS1so that we are in line with the changes in the curriculum.


    Resources will be purchased to help implement any new areas of the P.E curriculum and to renew resources so that the curriculum taught will be inclusive and provide a range of opportunities.


    A specific area on the schools website dedicated to school sport.
