PE and Sports Funding Archive

We are really pleased to report that during the school year 2013-14 we:

  • improved links with local schools to ensure more opportunities for inter school competition will take place which means more children will have the opportunity to represent the school in matches and tournaments.
  • forged links outside our local cluster of schools that will enable our sports children to compete at higher levels if successful at cluster level.
  • identified key sporting organisations (Gloucestershire Country Cricket Club, Britannia Dance, Twist & Flip Gymnastics, Stroud Judo, Xtreme Archery) that we aim to build better links with over the next few years which will help increase the participation of children in these clubs.
  • improved staff confidence and competence in teaching PE through using specialist coaches from St Peters which has resulted in a higher quality of teaching and learning.
  • increased the number of sports being offered to our children.
  • increased the number of school clubs, to include both team and individual sports, which helped increase participation in sport, with some clubs (eg gymnastics, karate, zumba and archery) deliberately targeting children who had not previously participated in sports clubs.

The impact of the funding from school year (2013-14) includes:

An increase in staff confidence in some sports; however we will look to improve this further with additional CPD.

Meeting our target of 60% of children to be taking part in 1 or more after school sports club.

2 children joining a gymnastics club who visited our school to provide coaching.

Introducing a new sports club, based on speaking to the children. This is something that we will do again at the end of this school year.

Participating in new competitions based on the coaching we have received, which will provide Level 2 opportunities for children who previously have not represented the school.


During the coming year (2014-15) we plan to:

  • Buy and implement a new scheme of work.
  • Extend the range of clubs available to pupils to help further increase participation.
  • Increase intra and inter school sport.
  • Increase the range of sports being delivered in curriculum time.
  • Introduce more taster sessions from local clubs to help signpost children where to go.
  • Improve the quality of inclusion for those children who struggle with PE through running appropriate training for staff.
  • Increase the celebration of children’s sporting achievements in both school and external sporting environments.
  • Establish a Change 4 Life club to help encourage activity in more children which will be led by Year 5 Leaders.
