Auditing / Evaluating your Provision

Auditing is the key to effective use of the premium and yet it is the aspect that is most often missed. You need to know how effective your current provision is before you can make decisions about how best to use your funding for improvement. If you audit annually you can also use the information to evidence the impact of your spending.

There are a variety of tools available to help schools to audit their provision effectively:

YST Audit

The Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark

Association for Physical Education (AfPE) Quality Mark

Kent PA and Health Quality Mark

The Kent Wheel

Staff CPD Audit

Ofsted Subsid guidance

Evidencing and Evaluating

Evidencing and evaluating the impact of your PE Premium funding does not have to be a complex process and there are a range of resources available that can help schools to do this effectively. Remember, your evidence should always aim to show how the spending of the Premium has impacted on outcomes for your pupils and how you have planned for sustainable impact.

If your school uses the SIMs system, you may like to have a look at the EIS course on tracking the PE Premium through SIMS. This has the potential to save you hours of data crunching and analysis and can capture almost all the data that you will need. Courses can be booked through kent cpdonline

Building Capacity

One of the fundamental expectations associated with the funding is that schools will use the money to ensure that all their staff are confident and competent deliverers of high quality PE and School Sport. This is key to ensuring a sustainable impact.

In order to achieve this, schools need to be able to access high quality CPD to support their staff and to ensure that they have the expertise within their school to develop less confident staff.

Schools wanting to develop one or more staff members to become ‘PE specialists’ should consider the Level 5/6 PE Specialism course developed by AfPE and Sportsleaders UK. Please download the flyer to find out more.

To find out about other training and support to help you upskill your staff, please download our brochure and see our courses page for upcoming training opportunities.

AfPE have produced a poster for schools to provide guidance on what questions to ask when selecting a CPD provider to ensure you are accessing high quality support.
