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 doing PE & outside providers.  We work in partnership with many organisations including Essex County Cricket Club and Writtle Minors girls and boys FC . We have the little Musketeers Fencing Club, Joels tennis Club & Winger Sports Academy dodgeball club in the mornings. 
We also offer many clubs both during and after the school day including Cross Country, multi sports & girls & boys  football. From these clubs our children 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 many competitions, doing our very best and learning from the experience. 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. 
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.
For the last financial year the sum allocated was calculated based on the number of pupils on roll at the time of allocation (237). The total Sport Premium grant received by the school the last financial year 2017-18 was £10,716.

This year the government have double the sports premium grant 2018-19 to £18,390 calculated based on number of pupils on roll (239) we have so far spent £15,979 (December 2018). 

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 3rd year that we are proud to announce that we have achived the 'Gold' Sainsbury's School Games Mark, which acknowledges our dedication to sports and well-being within our School.
