"The primary school sports funding is used well to employ professional coaches and teachers who train staff in sports skills. Staff are given the opportunity to watch experts teaching and then are observed themselves by the coaches. This has been very successful in building up teachers’ skills. Moreover, the funding has been successful in helping more pupils to take part in regular physical activity, for example, by trying different sports in which they would otherwise be unable to take part."
