PE and Sport Premium
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
For 2017-18 Yardley Primary School received £19,840 for our PE and Sport premium grant.
The amount was spent in full to contribute to covering the costs of the part-time specialist sports coach (who works 2 and half days a week), a specialist tag rugby coach (1 day a week) and football, netball and dance coaches who teach the after-school clubs.
The school offers 8 after school sports activities, fully funded by the school, with no cost to parents. Pupils from Years 1 to 6 have the opportunity to attend at least one club a week.
The school has been very successful in inter-sport competitions within Waltham Forest over the past academic year. Results have included;
Year 2 mixed football - 2nd place
Year 5 athletics - Winners
Year 5/6 Girls football - 2nd place
Year 2 athletics - 2nd place
Year 2 gymnastics - 2nd place
KS2 Cross Country - Boys Team 2nd place plus individual silver medallist
Year 3/4 Gymnastics - 2nd place
Year 5/6 Gymnastics - 3rd place
YR2 Indoor athletics - Winners
Yr5/6 Indoor athletics - 3rd place
Orion Harriers invitation cross country - both boys and girls teams 2nd place
Teams also competed in a number of other activities and events over the year. We were awarded the School Games bronze award and are aiming for the silver award this year.
Sustainability is provided by class teachers co-teaching with the specialist sports coaches during the lesson time to improve their own teaching of gymnastics, athletics, dance and a range of sports. The PE timetable is rotated termly so that all children receive access to being taught by the specialist coaches throughout the year.
Swimming takes place for pupils from February half term onwards in Year 5 up until February half term in Year 6.
