PE and Sport Grant

PE and Sport

Sport at Whitstable Endowed School is highly valued and we endeavour to ensure that all children receive a minimum of two hours PE a week.  All of our pupils have recently had a new and exciting scheme of work written for them, which encourages them to carry out a broad and balanced curriculum in PE and incorporates all aspects of the new PE curriculum.

In addition to our PE lessons, we offer a vast range of extra-curricular sports clubs which are led by both our own staff and also a range of sports coaches, to ensure that all children receive the best teaching possible.  

The government has been providing additional funding of £150 million per annum between 2013 and 2016 to improve provision of PE and sport in schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 

For the financial year: 2016/17 – Whitstable Endowed’s Primary School allocation is £8,965 (based on pupil numbers at September 2016).

 

Proposed expenditure for 2016/17 is approx. £10,000. For more details please see below PE/Sports
funding plan.

2016 - 2017

2015 - 2016

 

The impact of our overall commitment to sport is evident through our achievements in 2015-2016:

  • The High Five Netball runners up 2015
  • Canterbury District Girls Football league quarter-finalists 2015
  • Canterbury District Boy Football league and cup winners 2015
  • 3rd in District Rugby Tournament 2015
  • 6th out of 14 in Kwik Cricket Festival 2016
  • 3rd in Sportshall Athletics festival 2015
  • Involvement in SSCO tournaments, including Wake-up and Shake-up, gymnastics and tri-golf
  • Establishment of new intra house competitions in school in all year groups
  • Encouraging our gifted and talented children in sport to attend and represent district/county trials.
  • Establishing link with outside academies including Kent Cricket Club, Charlton Athletic, Arsenal,
    Gillingham FC, Whitstable Rugby Club and Whitstable Swimming Pool.
  • Introduction of a Change 4 Life Club during games' sessions to encourage those less confident in PE and sports.
     

Overall, 199 children took part in at least 2 hours of PE a week and over 65% of children enjoy extra-curricular sporting sessions in the year 2015-2016.  We hope to increase that % again this year with the introduction of a 'Change for Life' club, which will target those children who are less active.
