OFSTED July 2015

The academy makes good use of the additional funding it has received to extend the sporting opportunities that are available to pupils. Participation in the trust’s sports partnership has brought in specialist coaching for pupils and is helping to raise the expertise of staff. As a result, pupils’ enjoyment, skills and participation levels are increasing.

Impact – Specialist PE teachers from the Skegness Academy work each week with pupils and share their specialist knowledge with teachers. This acts as a mentoring mechanism and helps to improve the quality and breadth of teaching with primary staff feeling more confident in their PE delivery. This has increased pupils’ understanding of the benefits of physical exercise and participation rates in sporting activities. A growing enthusiasm for PE is evident and is directly related to the increase in competitive opportunities and variety of sports on offer. The wide range of expertise made available through Skegness Academy PE staff has a direct impact on the enrichment of both the PE and afterschool curriculum.
