Sports Premium

PE at WJS:
 
At Writtle Junior School we believe that all children should be given the opportunity to develop 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. Some of our year 3 children have even attended a Change4Life Festival. As a school we enter many competitions, always doing our very best and learning from the experience.
 
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.
For this financial year the sum allocated is calculated based on the number of pupils on roll at the time of allocation (226). The total Sport Premium grant received by the school this financial year is £8,000.00 + £5 per pupil (226), totalling £9,130.00.
 
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. The specialaist coach will also focus on G&T children and those that need extra support to reach age appropriate objectives.
  • Paying external sports coaches 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.

 
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.

- This year 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.
