Area of Spend



Team Teaching and After School Club

£8 384

Teacher confidence has improved in different areas of PE including outdoor adventurous activities and team games. The school has earned the recognition of the silver mark for PE and is currently working towards the gold mark.




Children gained a considerable amount of confidence and skills in areas and were able to go forward and enter an out of school level 2 competition for both of these sports, with the pupils in the Gymnastics competition being placed highly and receiving a trophy.

Sports coaches from 2 different organisations to work alongside teachers on a team teaching basis, to model effective PE lessons and increase the range of sports which children are engaged in.  Also, provision of an after-school club throughout the year (offered free of charge to the children).

Sports offered during PE lessons included Basketball, Gymnastics, Cricket, Athletics and a Trampoline taster session. 


Sports Coach used to enhance the range of activities on offer for after school clubs: in particular Gymnastics club and Tag Rugby.


Skipping Day

Sports company came to deliver 45-minute trampoline workshops to all individual classes. These skipping workshops were then rolled out into lunchtimes.


Children had a fantastic insight into different skipping techniques and games that many of them have never even thought about taking part in. since then they have been provided with skipping ropes at lunchtime for improved fitness and activity.



Children have had opportunities to take part in a range of different level 2 competitions against different schools from the local area. In particular the Sporting Ambassadors Conference has led to those Year 6 pupils taking on their own sports leader clubs for younger KS1 pupils. This has again enhanced the physical activity taking place across lunchtimes and developed leadership and management skills.

In 2017-18 we expect to receive double the grant received in 2016-17 due to the sugar tax introduced by the government this year. Our plans for using this grant to further enhance PE and sports provision within the school include:

  • Inter-sporting competitions each half term between year groups.
  • Introduction to a new sport days to encourage pupils to take up a new sport.
  • Training for staff around Gymnastics and Outdoor and adventurous activities.
  • Health and Wellbeing planned programmes for food and activity including Yoga, chill time and breathing techniques.

We expect to achieve the following outcomes for children as a result of these proposals:

  •  To achieve the gold mark in school games.
  • Increase staff confidence in particular areas of PE.
  •  Further achievement in competitions with the local schools.
  • Improved personal well-being across the school.
