St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School believes physical activity is a vital part of good health. Since receiving our first Sports Funding we have used the money to do the following:

  • Arrange training from the local authority for staff,
  • Re-arranged the timetable and so increased the time for PE for the vast majority of children
  • Bought new resources,
  • Organised a pupil questionnaire about the children’s experience of physical education in school and about what they do at home,
  • Provided free gymnastics classes after school,
  • Improved the quality of PE provision,
  • Encouraged the children to enter different competitions – eg orienteering,
  • Increased staffing hours specifically for PE.
  • Extended swimming lessons from 30 minutes a week to 45 minutes a week.

Impact 2014 – 2015

  • In September 2015  St Andrew’s were awarded the Sainsbury’s Bronze School Sports Mark.
  • Since the introduction of the funding we believe PE provision has improved in school.
  • Careful assessments are kept of pupil progress and this information is used to develop the children’s abilities further.
  • The children have access to a better range of equipment, both during lessons and at lunch times.
  • For a small school, the children have achieved success in competitions against other schools. (orienteering, Year 4 football, swimming)
  • Initially we used some of the funding to pay staff salaries. We do not do this now. All PE lessons are paid through the school budget. We were eager to make this sustainable should the funding cease.


Future developments

  • To continue to raise the profile and standard of PE provision in school
  • To continue to offer a broad range of curricular and extra curricular sporting and physical activities to every child in school.
  • To refurbish the key stage 1 and key stage 2 trim trails thus providing physical exercise for every pupil in school and to children in the local community during school breaks.
