Sports Premium

PE at WJS:
 At Writtle Junior School we believe that all our children should be given the opportunity to develop their skills and participate in lots of different sporting activities, through PE & sports clubs & outside providers.  We work in partnership with many organisations including Essex County Cricket Club and Writtle Minors girls and boys FC, Chelmsford Sports & Athletic Centre & Writtle Tennis Club. We have the little Musketeers Fencing Club, Writtle tennis Club & Winger Sports Academy dodgeball club in the mornings & yoga after school. 
We as a school offer many clubs both during and after the school day including Cross Country, multi sports & girls & boys football. A variety of lunchtime sports clubs including tag rugby, gymnastics, athletics & tennis from these clubs our children get selected to compete in a range of competitions. Many sports are catered for at WJS ranging from Tag Rugby to Cricket, dodgeball to hockey.  We also run a motor skills club & a Change4Life club which are both proving very successful. Our year 3/4 children have attended lots of Change4Life Festivals. 

As a school we enter so many competitions, doing our very best, working as a team and having an enjoyable experience competing against other school children at a variety of venues. If the children enjoy the sport they have competed in there is always opportunities to then go and join the clubs outside school. 

The chelmsford school partnership hold a variable of sporting events so a variety of our children get the opportunity to take part in many of them throughout the school year. Some of the events are dance festivals, Archery, boccia, Badminton, Bowls, Kurling, cricket, tennis, athletics, dodgeball hockey, Tag rugby tournaments, superstars and sports hall Athletics. 

Sports Premium

The Sports Premium was introduced in April 2013 and is a sum of money allocated to schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. The total Sport Premium grant received by the school in 2022-23 is £18,395. 

The grant will be used on:

  •  Employing a specialist PE coach to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE. The specialaist coach will also focus on getting a range of children to take part in various competitions and those that need extra support to reach age appropriate objectives through motor skills & well being groups.
  • Paying external sport coach to run clubs, competitions, or to increase pupils’ participation in national school games competitions.
  • Buying into existing local sports networks such as school sport partnerships or community sports coaching initiatives.
  • Providing extra, additional equipment to ensure that the PE curriculum can be taught effectively and also our children are provided with safe equipment for lunchtimes.

- This is our 4th year that we are proud to announce that we have achieved the 'Gold' Sainsbury's School Games Mark, which acknowledges our dedication to sports and well-being within our School.
