Lowe’s Wong Anglican Methodist Junior School Sports Funding


The government continues to provide additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.



Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of pupils on roll in January annually.


Purpose of Funding:

Schools must spend the funding on improving the quality and breadth of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of, but schools are free to choose the best way of using the money.



Since September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional funding. Ofsted have strengthened the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance, so that both schools and inspectors know how PE and sport is assessed as part of the school’s overall provision.


Sports and Physical Education at Lowe’s Wong Anglican Methodist Junior School

Physical education develops the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. It promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action - involving thinking, selecting and applying skills. Additionally, it promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle, enabling children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.


Principles and Aims

§ To develop a whole school approach to the teaching of PE and sport

§ To improve standards of achievement in PE and sport

§ To promote physical exercise and healthy lifestyles

§ To make sport enjoyable and accessible for all children, by encouraging creativity and imagination

§ To promote personal, social, intellectual skills alongside physical skills

§ To foster co-operation, tolerance and self esteem



§ To develop skills in dance, gymnastics, games, swimming, athletics and outdoor adventurous activities

§ To select and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas

§ To recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise

  • To evaluate and improve their performance



Key achievements to date until July 2020:

Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

  • We continue to offer a wide range of sporting activities both through our PE curriculum and through offering after school sports provision.
  • We have continued to participate and be successful in local sporting events, giving as many children as possible the opportunity to compete competitively.
  • Some of our teams have been successful enough to have had the opportunity to compete further afield at county and regional events.
  • Provide training in key areas of weakness for staff as identified by PE lead.
  • We secured funding and have now built a wonderful new 4 badminton court sized sports hall for school and community use.
  • We have offered training to enable our Year 6 children to become sports leaders who regularly organise lunchtime activities for Years 3 to 5.
  • We have audited and targeted the less active children and our sports leaders have offered fun activities to encourage them to take part in sports more for pleasure.
  • To continue to offer more sporting opportunities in alternative sports e.g. boccia
  • To continue to identify non-swimmers and encourage them to access swimming on top of curriculum coverage. 
  • To continue to attend, and where possible, increase our attendance of inter school competitive fixtures to encourage a wider range of children to compete in different types of sport.
  • To enhance lunchtime and before/after school provision of physical activity.
  • To offer staff the opportunity to observe PE specialists delivering sessions.

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and sport premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?
