  • Enabling children to take part in a range of sporting activities off site.
  • Providing specialist coaches to deliver specific sporting activities,
  • Entering teams of children from Key Stage one and two to represent the school in a variety of sports competitions through the schools partnership programme.

Our PE and Sports funding for 2016-17 is £8475 and is being used in the following ways:





Local Cluster Sports Partnership: Participation in the local cluster sports partnership. This included weekly  ‘Gifted & Talented’ sessions for older pupils and sports competitions against other schools




The inter-school competitions allows a range of children to compete against other schools and this included SEND and disadvantaged pupils thus boosting their personal esteem. So far this year children were successful in winning qualification for events like County cross-country and winning the swimming gala



Weekly swimming:  Children across KS2 took part in weekly swimming sessions run by the local sports centre.





All children able to access the swimming curriculum and last year all Y6 pupils achieved the expected standard.


Sports coaches: The school was able to fund two specialist sports coaches who came in and delivered PE to pupils across all age phases weekly. This included the provision of an after school football club.





Pupil’s skills and knowledge have improved and many children have been motivated by the sessions. The sessions have also helped promote enjoyment and engagement in PE – this has been highlighted by pupil discussions.



Fitness coach: The school will fund a fitness coach in the autumn term to deliver four sessions to older children. The aim will be to develop fitness skills and will culminate in a competition against other local primaries.






Children have had the opportunity to take part in weekly sport sessions delivered by trained coaches.

Children in have taken part in a Super Schools sports competition, coming second


Transport: The school will fund coaches to transport children to inter-school sports competitions in the area thus giving all types of children, including more ‘vulnerable’ learners the chance to take part in competitive sport.
