Sports Premium

PE at WJS:
At Writtle Junior School we believe that all children should be given the opportunity to developing their sporting skills.  We work in partnership with many organisations including Essex County Cricket Club and Writtle Minors girls and boys FC .  We even have a Fencing Club on a Friday which is organised by the Little Musketeers.
We offer many clubs both during and after the school day.  Cross Country is one of our latest offerings and our team compete in a range of competitions.  Many sports are catered for at WJS ranging from Tag Rugby, to Cricket; Hi5 to hockey.  We have also implemented a Change4Life club which has been very successful.  As a school we enter many competitions, always doing our very best and learning from the experience.
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 this financial year (April 2016 – March 2017) the sum allocated is calculated based on the number of pupils on roll at the time of allocation (224). The total Sport Premium grant received by the school this financial year is £8,000.00 + £5 per pupil (224), totalling £9,120.00.
The grant will be used on:

  •  Employing specialist PE coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE
  • Paying external sports coaches to run 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

Note: Our aim for this year is to move from the ‘Silver’ Sainsbury’s School Games Mark, to the ‘Gold’ Sainsbury’s School Games Mark, which involves increased participation in sporting events across the key stage.
