Physical Education (PE) and sports premium funding

Woolmore Primary School was allocated £18,880 through the Government’s Primary PE and Sport Premium for the 2017/18 academic year.

We have had success in increasing the profile of PE at Woolmore Primary School over the past few academic years but want to continue to build on this strong base this year and beyond. Our Sports funding only covers part of what we spend on PE as a whole.

Our vision

All pupils leaving Woolmore Primary School will be physically literate with the understanding, knowledge and skills as well as the motivation and control necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Allocation of time

All pupils from Year 1- Year 6 have a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week. In most cases of these sessions are taught by our BADU sports coach whom works full time at Woolmore. Within these sessions pupils are taught a range of skills and techniques from the following sports; gymnastics, athletics, dance, team sports, individual sports.

The other PE session for Year 4, 5 & 6 is a weekly swimming session taught by specialist swimming teachers at Poplar Baths. We also have one additional swimming session a week dedicated to children with EHC plans and those with specialist support plans.

 How we spend our money for sport

  • Employ our Badu PE coaches to work alongside our teachers and support staff when teaching PE in order to strengthen teaching and learning in this subject across the school and to raise the profile of PE, sport and healthy lifestyles.
  • Employ our Badu PE coaches to work collaboratively with midday meals supervisors to ensure additional high-quality teaching of sport at lunches and playtimes occurs, this includes targeted coaching provision for year groups.
  • Provide additional PE coaching time outside of school hours as part of our extensive after-school clubs programme.
  • Provide additional PE coaching time for children who have been selected to go to interschool tournaments.
  • Buy into a Service Level Agreement with Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation so that the children at Woolmore can participate in inter-school tournaments.
