9 Effective use of Funding
It is crucial this additional money is used to provide a sustainable impact – How? Schools that have done this effectively have provided physical education that has truly made a difference to the lives of young people. To plan for improvement the school should undertake a review and an audit of needs.

10 Effective use of funding
Subject leaders should access high quality professional learning. All teachers should have access to professional learning, particularly to improve their subject knowledge and as a result their confidence to deliver high quality physical education. Any other specialists such as coaches should be used to work alongside teachers to help develop their subject knowledge; they should not replace them. Once the funding ceases so will the ability to buy in specialists and sustainability will evaporate. Good or better teaching promotes learning and progress for all pupils and there should be on-going monitoring and reviewing of the impact.
