Sports & PE Provision
Primary School PE and sport funding
Sports Premium Overview
At Whiteways Primary School we recognise the importance that physical education, healthy active lifestyles and competitive sports have in helping to prepare pupils for adult life.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement to provide additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sports in primary schools. We are committed to ensuring that this money provides pupils with greater opportunities to engage in sporting and physical activities as well as ensuring that they receive a wider range of experiences to help them develop a fuller understanding of the world.
What does the Sport Premium Funding mean for Whiteways?
‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).
The three key areas for consideration when allocating the funding are; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sports.

In the academic year 2014/15 Whiteways Primary School will continue to subscribe to the Arches programme as well as PTC Sports. Lunchtime activities and free after school clubs will be offered to the children to maximize their physical education and further opportunities will be provided throughout the year. We also plan to run skipping workshops in the Autumn term across the school.
At Whiteways Primary we recognise the value of participation in regular sporting activities and Physical Education (PE).
During our normal school day, all children are timetabled to participate in a PE lesson. This lesson follows our PE curriculum and includes swimming lessons.
We also use after school providers to deliver clubs and activities including football, uni-hock, dodgeball, cricket, tag rugby, cheerleading, basketball, netball, gymnastics, athletics, boxercise and streetdance.
