Raising children’s interest in physical activity

We funded the offer of every child being able to attend a P.E related after school club at least once during the year. Football, multiskills, fun fitness and cricket were on offer at different points in the year. Across these clubs 90 places were taken up by pupils from Yr 2 – 6.


We funded training for upper KS2 pupils to run the ‘Playground Pals’ scheme – providing older pupils with the skills to run games at breaktimes.


Supported curriculum

This was done by enabling all children from Y2-Y6 to be taught a range of sports skills with coaches from Southcoast Sports and hiring a greater number of swimming teachers.


Providing competitive opportunities

Some KS2 children were able to participate in some competitive events. 10 Y5/6 children to participate in a locality cricket festival and tournament and 8 Y5/6 children to participate in the locality Sports Day type tournament.   Greater number of football matches held during the year. Some of the grant was used to transport pupils to these events.


Providing equipment and resources

Stoolball bats were purchased and necessary equipment for sports day. We also participated in the Sainsbury’s Active Kids scheme.



Staff confidence and ability to deliver quality PE lessons has grown and developed.


Quality of PE improved – good use of coaches to deliver the curriculum enabling the children to achieve


Opportunity for KS2 children to participate in competitions/matches has increased.  Upper KS2 pupils were skilled in providing ‘Playground Pals’ games at breaktimes.
