ACADEMIC YEAR 2016 – 2017

In respect of the academic year 2016 – 2017 the PE and School Sport Funding Allocation is £9225 (Forecast).

PE and School Sport Funding

The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that were held in London. In order to achieve this and improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools, additional funding of £150 million per annum has been made available for the academic years 2015/6 and 2016/7.

At Wellesbourne Primary and Nursery School we believe that sport plays a crucial role contributing to the health and well-being of our children. We also believe that Sporting excellence and participation go hand in hand with academic standards.

We continue to use the Sport Funding to purchase membership of several leagues in the city and in neighbouring authorities, which alongside our own school actions has enabled us to strengthen and improve our provision in the following ways:

• To appoint PE sports coach to teach PE and work alongside our teaching assistants when teaching PE. He works with us all week, with children from Year 1 to Year 6. This enables him to plan and deliver a scheme of sports and clubs that progressively develop our children

• To support and engage the least active children through new/additional sports and health clubs

• To attend sport competitions and increase pupils’ participation in school Games

• To buy quality assured professional development modules /materials for PE and sport

• To provide places for pupils on after school and lunchtime sports clubs

PE Curriculum 

A wide range of activities are delivered in school which aims to engage and inspire all children. We are also committed to ensure that all children receive high quality well-planned PE lessons and opportunities.

Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics, dance and gymnastics lessons. Opportunities are also planned for swimming in Years 3/4/5/6 and Outdoor and Adventurous activities in Years 6. Our aim is that all children leave our school at the end of Year 6 able to swim 25 metres.

The Wider Curriculum

PE and sport has a high profile in our school and permeates many aspects of school life.

Summer 2016 we held our fourth whole school sports day. We were very pleased with the big turnout of parents, who happily took part in the races and activities. We also offer extra opportunities for sporting activities after school and at lunchtimes.

During our residential visits, children are given opportunity to participate in many different activities which may include orienteering, climbing and assault courses.

Other agencies are used to enhance the variety of activities available and we take full advantage when these opportunities become available. For example Jamie Carragher Sports run training sessions in school. Talented children are signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills.

The school is keen to provide a wide range of extra-curricular clubs for children throughout the year which are organised by our teaching staff and/or sports coach.

Children enjoy the opportunity to work with different teachers and have the chance to try many sports such as Tennis, Football, Multi-skills, Hockey, Cricket, Rounders, Skipping, Benchball, Tag Rugby, Athletics and Cross Country.We enter a wide range of competitions.


Wellesbourne Primary and Nursery School is committed to providing an increasing range of opportunities for children to participate in high quality sports games and PE activities.
