Measuring the impact of spending

A variety of measures are used to assess the impact of spending, including increased involvement and motivation.    The PE lead reports back to the SLT and the Governors to this effect. 

Most significantly, the impact of PE and Sports Funding is intended at having a positive effect on both sustainable training for staff and on pupil involvement.  As can be seen above, funding for training is increasing staff skills and understanding for improved teaching and accessibility for pupils.
