"The recent Government funding for P.E. at Glen Hills has been invested in employing specialist sport coaches to teach our P.E. lessons this year.
Over the course of this year we have found that Football and Fitness have successfully provided the school with high quality PE teaching and
learning across all year groups. The impact of this has had a very positive influence at the school in a number of ways.
Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, the children always look forward to lessons, are enthusiastic and engaged in lessons and coaches have
formed an excellent rapport with pupils. Observations of lessons have shown that the pupils are constantly improving their knowledge and
understanding of skills, are acquiring new skills, and are engaging in lessons that challenge them to the best of their ability. Football and Fitness
have introduced a wide range of activities that are fun and encourage all children to participate and enjoy P.E and sports at Glen Hills.
We are confident that standards of teaching and learning are even higher than ever. Pupils are being given opportunities to learn play new sports
and games. It is not just the pupils who benefit from receiving more specialised teaching and coaching. Staff feel they have also gained invaluable
experience by observing the coaches teaching styles, the range of activities and ideas for games coaches have provided. Many also feel it has given
them the confidence to teach PE more effectively themselves. Observations by the staff have also enabled teachers to see pupils progress in all areas
of PE and how much children have developed across the academic year."
