In the 2017-18 academic year Great Bedwyn School received £17.820 in Sports Premium. We used this to:
- Engage all pupils in regular physical activity and high quality PE provision
- Raise the profile of PE
- Further increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of staff in teaching PE
- Offer a broader range of sports and activities

The PE spend provides KS2 staff with a qualified sports coach to work alongside them during class PE games sessions. It has also given the children two members of staff to teach them in each PE lesson leading to increased specific coaching and participation in lessons. The improvements to sport are sustainable as teachers have learnt new skills which they will use when teaching independently.
Whilst a PE coach supports the provision of high quality PE in KS2, responsibility for leading high quality PE in KS1 and across the school is with our PE subject leader and teachers who have been undertaking CPD and using ‘Real PE’ to ensure high quality provision.
The many extracurricular sports clubs and local festivals will continue. Pupils are encouraged to take part in extracurricular sports clubs hosted at school and many pupils also take part in sport away from school and are members of local clubs including Marlborough and Hungerford Rugby Clubs, Hungerford Football Club, Marlborough Squash Club, Great Bedwyn and Ramsbury tennis teams etc.
