If you’re looking for ways to save money and improve the efficiency of your school’s physical education (PE) provision, outsourcing could be a great option. By partnering with an external provider like Time4Sport, you can benefit from cost savings, expertise, and a wider range of activities for your students.
Save money by outsourcing your PE provision
Outsourcing PE and school sports can help schools save money in a number of ways. According to a study conducted by the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), primary schools can save up to £10,000 per year on staffing costs alone by outsourcing PE. This is because external providers can offer services at a lower cost than hiring a full-time teacher. Additionally, external providers can cover their own staff absences, so schools are not left short or have to scramble for supply agencies. This means that schools can avoid the worry of supply costs of up to £200 per day if a supply agency has any staff available to work in the school on that day.
Year-round PE offer
One of the benefits of outsourcing PE and school sports is that external providers can offer year-round support. Time4Sport provides its services all year, including securing funding to provide free HAF/HUBB holiday provision, which includes food education, physical activities, and enrichment activities. Time4Sport manages this provision from start to finish, including recruiting, delivery, healthy food, and support for families.
Highly trained PE experts
External providers of PE and school sports are often highly trained and experienced in their field. They can offer a more specialised service and provide students with expert coaching and guidance. This can be particularly important when it comes to teaching specific skills, such as gymnastics or swimming. By outsourcing PE and school sports, schools can ensure that their students receive the best possible education in physical education.
Flexible session and effective use of time
Outsourcing PE and school sports can also offer schools greater flexibility. Employing a PE teacher on a full-time basis could mean that there are times when their time is not being used effectively. By working with an external provider like Time4Sport, schools can have a coach who is available to work only when they are needed. This can help schools to operate more efficiently and make the most of their resources.
